Inspired by this sub-forum and Trés Chic's python Marin (and the -50% off), I've just acquired the Marin and the Mahala in Jungle. And yes, they are truly gorgeous. I have been eyeing JC bags for some time now, but so far I have only gone for the shoes (I actually ordered the python shoes on sale to go with the clutch, but the heels were ugly + I have a beautiful pair of Sergio Rossi snakeskin sandals that will be perfect with the clutch). It was definitely the beautiful python skin that made me go ahead with the buy. The python paired with the matte gold hw is so glamorous... I'll post some pictures during the weekend. So long!
