Charles David Snake Embossed Suede Flap BagI’m having a hard time summoning up some thoughts about the Charles David Snake-Embossed Suede Flap Bag. And that’s not a problem I have often – I’m judgmental and snarky by nature, something I constantly fight in the real world but get to embrace in my Purse Blog life. And it’s time to do it right now, and I don’t have much to say.

Sure, the color of this is nice. Dark teal blues are good against a lot of skin colors and jewel tones always look great with the blacks, browns, and dark greys of fall, but it’s not making me swoon for some reason. And I’m not sure I like the flap – it’s fine, I guess, but it looks a little bunchy and oversized for the body of the bag. The combination of suede and faux snakeskin also isn’t completely inspiring in this iteration – the snakeskin looks fake and the suede doesn’t make the bag look quite as plush as you would expect. It’s not terrible by any means, but nothing about it makes my heart sing, and sometimes the mediocre bags are the hardest ones to review. Buy through Nordstrom for $188.

    If it was just leather the shape would be nice.

    I like it, it’s cute and the price is great. I saw it at Nordstrom and I think it is real snake.
