We can’t all carry an exotic handbag everyday. I know there are some of you out there who have loads of exotic handbags – lucky – but the good thing is that you can get a similar look, for less. Of course a croc embossed handbag doesn’t come close to the real thing, but there certainly are a few out there I wouldn’t mind toting around. The Dooney and Bourke Croco Large Hobo could be an option. The hobo style shoulder bad is made of crocodile-embossed leather and comes in a variety of colors. Here, the red looks absolutely stunning. Yet, if you aren’t a red handbag kind of person, pick up the bag in black, brown or honey. The hobo shape is classic and clearly you have plenty of room for just about anything you might carry around during the day. If you were in the market for an exotic handbag, would you hold out for the real deal or buy something like this instead? Buy through Zappos for $285.

    Looks a bit stiff and the strap looks very uncomfortable.

    No. Just….no. The embossing looks like a caricature of crocodile, and the straps need to be adjusted so that they don’t look like earflaps hanging down the sides of the bag. In fact, the straps look like they belong to a different bag altogether.

    I received this bag as a generous gift from my boyfriend, and it is STUNNING. I receive so many compliments on it, not only from friends, but total strangers as well.
