…In a While, Crocodile!

Crocodile bags are a big trend this fall, and in une femme’s opinion are classics with staying power (always luxe in black, especially), but the real thing is trop cher pour moi.

There are lots of nice alternatives in croc-embossed leather available in a wide range of prices. Here are some of une femme’s favorites.

Ann Taylor, $198

Furla, $465

Monsac, $268. (Monsac is one of those under-the-radar, great accessory brands. Their designs are simple, functional, classic, and very well made. Great value for the price!)

Hobo International $191.95 Nice ladylike bag with a vintage vibe.

Pierotucci, $377. This Italian company produces high quality, handmade bags and has a reputation for excellent customer service.

    Miss J COVETS the Hobo International. Such a reasonable size, and she loves the vintage vibe.

    Me too! Saw one very similar on “Mad Men” the other night.

    I think the Devi Kroell bags at Target – particularly the hard-sided, snake-chain handled evening clutch – are an amazing buy for a faux “skin” bag (snake rather than croc, but just as spot-on for this season). The qulity is comprable to high-end faux bags I’ve seen (after all, Stella McCartney does cruelty-free vinyl bags for many multiples the price!). The darker shades of bronze or anthracite look best in the Target bags, as they have a richer tone.

    I got one last year that’s by 9West and is something of a cross between that Hobo International and a doctor bag (size and vintagey feel of the former, shape more like the latter)–I use it tons! And I have a small acid-green one, mock-croc also, by Jeanne Lottie that I got a few years ago — also a doctor bag shape but only big enough for wallet, cell, keys, lipstick, not much more. Sometimes I get weary of hauling my life around on one shoulder.

    I shlep too much stuff to carry really small bags anymore. Wallet, cell phone, blackberry, a couple of lip glosses, small hand lotion, etc. But I do think the big bag trend has gone overboard. So many bags these days feel more like one is carrying a piece of luggage. It’s always about the happy middle, I guess.
