Calling all animal print lovers, this is an animal print handbag you do not want to miss out on. While procrastinating on doing my ever-so-interesting homework (hopefully my professors aren’t reading this), the Tory Burch Medium Haircalf Top Bag caught my eye. It’s the perfect accessory that can be used all year round, and it’ll give any outfit that double-take factor. Anyone who knows me well knows about my love for anything with animal print, and as soon as I saw this bag I felt compelled to share this with my fellow bag lovers.

My love for exotic prints dates back to high school, where I wore an all-leopard dress to my senior prom. As you can see, four years later, exotic prints continuously get incorporated into my wardrobe through both my clothing and accessories. This Tory Burch shoulder bag is the perfect accessory that can be used all year round, and will give any outfit that double-take factor. This bag has an array of fabrics and textures but it’s all combined tastefully, just like everything in Ms. Burch’s line.

I spotted this bag on ShopBop’s website and I knew that I had to write about it. The snakeskin haircalf is offset with leather gussets and trimmings. The gold plated tortoise buckle is a beautiful decoration that hides the magnetic detailing for closure. Even the inside detailing includes leather trim, plus a zipper divider and detachable mirror. If you read my previous post on a particularly shiny Gucci clutch, then you know how I feel about mirrors attached to my handbags. Out of everything, though, my favorite features of this bag by far are the tortoise resin chain strap and top bar. This feature is unlike one I have seen recently and it’s a refreshing look – it adds just a bit of vintage charm. Buy through ShopBop for $850.
