Not too long ago, I wrote a post about how much I don’t like colored python bags. I was really certain that that’s how I felt, and I didn’t think twice about it. Well, because that’s just how I am, I seem to have managed to prove myself wrong. I really, really like the Lauren Merkin Tess Painted Minibag.

I’ve seen other multicolored python bags that I liked since then as well – it was like as soon as I put that sentiment out into the world, the universe set its sights on proving that I’m an idiot. Normally, I would feel a little weird about that, but if it means that I keep seeing cute bags then I wouldn’t change things for the world.

I don’t know about you, but when the weather gets hot, I tend to use progressively smaller bags. Summers here are so nasty and sticky that the thought of lugging around a giant sack of leather and metal next to my skin just isn’t appetizing or interesting to me when temperatures rise above 80 degrees, as they did yesterday for the first time since last summer.

That, combined with my apparently newfound affinity for multicolor python, has lead me to my love for this bag in particular. It’s just big enough to hold all your daily junk without being bulky or annoying to carry, and who doesn’t want a little injection of color during the summer? I’m not a huge fan of embossed exotics, but for a cute style at a relatively low price, I’m willing to live with the bag’s material. Obviously it’s not an everyday bag, but I could probably find a time to carry it at least once a week. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $325.
