After a somewhat long work week, I went to Saks Fifth Avenue yesterday to look at pretty things. I had been eyeing the continental wallet in Vitello leather, and the Karlito bag bug was sitting in an open case on the counter! I started chatting with the SA, from whom I bought my 2Jours a few weeks ago (my first designer handbag!), and she told me that Karlito's sunglasses are made of mink, his tie is made of nappa leather, and his suit is made of fox fur. She also let me stroke the bag bug as much as I wanted - the fox fur is just mesmerizingly soft. :happydance:

The SA also gave me a card with a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld for one of his 2013 Fendi collections. It's quite lovely, and I'm thinking of framing it for my home or office. I'm starting to develop a relationship with this SA, and I guess these small goodies come with the package. :smile:

Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures!

I love the photo and the sketch! The Karlito is very cute and a fun accessory for the handbag this fall and a great decorative piece for the shelf! However, its EURO 1 240.00 in Paris and even if you still want it there are waiting lists!

A Fendi SA told me that it is $1700. Not too bad for something that is made fully in fur.
