Who likes the python! And who doesn't?! Honest opinion! I like it...saw the satchel at Macys and thought the leather was done really well. My mom liked it too. My sister wrinkled her nose. Lol!!
Well, I think I am eating my words.....I am watching the presentation on the python.........the pink is GORGEOUS OMGOSH!!!!! kcWell, ok, here is what I think (know I say this without ever seeing it IRL). I do think it is beautiful but very pricey .............and I wonder if it will be a "forever" handbag or just a fad? In five years from now will you be able to pull it out of your closet and carry it?? So, that is what keeps me from trying them. I dont want to invest in something trendy but something I can carry for years. For the ladies that love it....that is great!! kc
You know, I'm terrified of both snakes and alligators, but 2 weeks ago I took my son to a b-day party for one of his friends and it was at a nature center. At the end they showed them a snake. I managed to touch it, and it wasn't as disgusting as I thought it would be. I ownder if it was because of the type of snake (I think it was called a fox snake), anyway, going back to the purses...I don't think of them (snake and croco embossed) as the animals they represent, I just look at them like prints with a texture. The cure to get over the croco brahmins, get one in a fun color, like pink, yellow, blue or red. It will soft the feeling since you never see a real one in that color. I think that's why I have very colorful brahmins. I would not get one that is too close to the actual color of a croc.Honestly...yuck! Reminds me of scaly disgusting snakes. Probably why I haven't yet been able to bring myself to buy a Brahmin. The gator pattern is too realistic--it's kind of creepy. Still, I say to each her own. My aunt doesn't like the Dooney Croco bags because she says the croco pattern doesn't look realistic enough. I prefer it that way.
Very pretty bag Sarah, that color looks very striking with the dark leather trim, I can see why you like it so much! kcI didn't care for any of the "reptile" bags until a couple of years ago; then suddenly...I did. I love the Dooney python; it's very supple and so lightweight to carry. I just wish they had made the continental clutch wallet to match the black python.
