I just got an email today from Neiman-Marcus. One of the items featured was a gorgeous pair of vert croc Manolo Blahnik sling-back shoes - $2685. Now these shoes have VERY little croc, compared with an entire Kelly or Birkin croc bag! They are just stunning, though. Just imagine them with a little Hermes croc clutch. Actually, they show it with a cute little caiman matte croc clutch in a lucious color - it's cheap - only $1365, but clearly not the quality of an Hermes.
