Obsession of the day - exotic textures

I am a tried and true bagaholic and lately I have been so obsessed with exotic skins and diffferent textures of leather...for some reason they really draw me in and I can never resist! I have been on the prowl for bags of various skins and textures and have found some that I really love and cherish. Whether they are true exotics or embossed doesn't really bother me, what I appreciate most about them is that they are truly timeless...I can see myself using them in 5 or 10 years and they will still be fashionable and classic.

I found this ostrich skin hobo in a leather shop here in Bangkok where I live. What I love about living in Asia is that you can find really high quality leather goods for very reasonable prices. The leather is buttery soft and what I love most is that it just gets softer and more supple with use. I use it everyday!

Another true love of mine - red and embossed! This is a furla bag I bought during a recent trip to Singapore - the deep red colour, leather texture, and shape caught my eye immediately. It is very easy to use and goes with just about everything in my wardrobe. Red is truly one of my favourite colours for hangbags because I normally dress in very neutral tones and a red bag is a great way to add a pop of colour. Don't you agree that this is a classic?


  1. Love classic bags!

  2. exotic leathers last much longer than trendy bags and are a good choice for women who enjoy bags.
