So, I have a confession to make; I don’t own an exotic bag of my own. I do have a gorgeous Adriana Castro cosmetic bag, but I don’t have an exotic bag. And when it comes to me and exotics, I am very picky. Just as I am sure you do, I know everything that goes into an exotic bag. Like so many other bags, time and time again goes into the entire production of the bag. And while it could just be me, when it comes to exotic, I take even more of the production process into account.

LAI Jesslyn Small Tote

Like I said before, it takes a stunning bag draped in exotic material to make me want it… no scratch that… yearn for it. The LAI Jesslyn Small Tote is an exotic bag that has made me yearn for it! What is even better is that the colors of this bag scream Fall Season more than just about any other bag that I’ve seen thus far.

First off, this is the kind of bag you can carry during the day without someone thinking, “holy walk of shame” or carry at night without thinking, “yikes, bad choice, go home before you go out”. And let’s be honest, there are those days where you don’t have time between work and life to switch your wardrobe. But it is this gorgeous python skin that has me hooked. The combinations of bronze, black and grey come together perfectly. There is no weird transition; no awkward collaboration; it all just works! Grab onto the open top as you head out of the house and you will find yourself loving the cutout top handle more than you may have realized. Then open the bag and you will see the at the detail hasn’t stopped outside of the bag since it is leather lined. Gorgeous, through and through. I’m loving it! Buy through Bluefly on sale for $390.

* Leather lined
