I finally got around to photographing my new babies. I've had them all almost a week now. Ready for some photo goodness?

First, the overall shot:

The Kristen Embossed Python Crossbody was my outlet find last week. I had seen it earlier and it haunted me. I have NO use for it, but I couldn't resist! I had to go back and get it. And it ended up being dropped to 50/30 when I went back. Even better!

Loving how easy the chain strap is to detach. It could be very versatile in the future.

I've been wanting *something* in Emerald leather. With the color rapidly disappearing from stores, I grabbed the Legacy leather pencil case. I write with fountain pens whenever I can, so it's nice to have something to keep them all together. I can fit 4 of my Lamy Safari pens in this bag. And probably a few emergency ink cartridges. (I use bottled ink, but just in case.)

I wanted something in Mint, too. I love green. :smile: But I think light-colored bags are likely to get dirty in my hands. So I got the large wristlet to toss in my my messenger bag when I'm taking my laptop somewhere.

There's a LOT going on with that zipper pull. It's really hard to open when there's 3 things hanging off. I tried taking off the tassels. Problem:

It's stitched together. Those puppies aren't coming off. So, I had to take the hangtag off. I probably won't keep the wrist strap on most of the time either. I'm very disappointed by the tassel situation

And finally, my blue baby... Legacy Penny in Cobalt.

With the large wristlet:

Does anyone else have trouble with the clips going through the D-ring for the doubled over strap? It's really tight on mine.

I decided to play with the chain strap from the Kristen python on the Penny. The lobster-claw clips are too small to fit on the Penny D-rings. But I was able to loop it around.

And here it is hanging on a hook in my kitchen:

That's all I've got :biggrin:

I didn't realize the wristlet was bigger than the Penny! I have some vintage purses with the same kind of strap and they don't fit through the D ring for doubling. I don't think you should have that much trouble with the wristlet zipper.

I love your Kristin! I love small purses even though I don't have a need for them.

The colors of your Legacy items are gorgeous!

I love the chain idea!

Twins on the mint wristlet!! I have the UV and cognac wristlets also and all of the stuff on the strap does tend to get in the way lol it was more than a little awkward when I started using it like why is all this sh*t hanging on the strap and now its getting stuck in the zipper! haahha i've gotten used to it now, i think I've just trained myself to grab all of it along with the strap to close it. Great haul though! I think I saw the mini kristin at the outlet before but they were only doing 30/30 so I had to leave it behind for spite. great idea about the chain strap!
