I have been ape over the purple python Tod’s Bauletto Helmut bag ever since Kelly wrote about it and swore it’s going to be my next treat (the leather is nice but the python, that is spectacular!). I kept thinking it’d eventually go on sale (everything goes on sale!) so I haven’t made the move but now that I see Gwyn running around town with it I am pissed I didn’t jump on it first (okay so I’m also pissed I’m not 5’11″ but that’s an issue we’ll discuss another time).
By the way, just want to say this is the perfect example of how a fabulous bag will make your outfit. Gwyn appears to be wearing her hubby’s shapeless cardigan and her baby’s blanket but still, she looks stylish because of the bag. Yes yes it’s a functional bag but I’m mainly sold on the to die for color– it is such a gorgeous shade of purple!
The python version is $2,525 (very reasonable!) plus it’s only 14″ wide- perfect for me. But I am officially on a major bag diet. Someone picked up a matte crocodile Birkin in Gris Elephant (the most fabulous neutral shade- with a tinge of olive and gray) today and is not allowed to buy another bag for like, a year. So for now, I’ll just sit here green with envy over Gwyn’s bag and hope that it does goes on sale. Call Justin at Tod’s to order! 214-363-6600 Tod’s Bauletto bags also at eluxury.com
