I am back from my Martha’s Vineyard vacation refreshed and uplifted! I missed the Obamas by a day but did see secret service helicopters circling around. While on vacation mode (dressed in bathing suit cover up, summer dress or pajamas the whole time and shopping for lobster chotskies and canvas totes) I was completely removed from anything fashionable and stylish. And that’s a good thing. Gives me perspective! It’s great to fall in love with outrageously pricey impractical bags and shoes because it shows you have passion but when it comes to actual purchases, it’s good to have your head on straight. Like this python tote from Anya Hindmarch, which I saw at Fall Preview earlier this year and after all this time, I am still in lust and it will be a must. It has all the glam you need and want (although in person it is not as shiny as this picture) but the bag is super lightweight and handy as a carry all for everyday life. It is definitely more pewter and less gold than it is showing here, which means, it can go with either! It uses small scale skins and not the belly side, but for the price I can totally live with that. At Anya Hindmarch online for $2645.
