Calf hair is as luxe as any skin out there – and it’s the exotic you don’t have to feel guilty about (unless you’re an animal lover, that is). Tactile and touchable, soft but not too plush: I love the unique texture, especially as winter approaches and smooth leather and suede start to look commonplace. What better time to stock up than when it’s on sale?! The NET-A-PORTER sale of the season is on, and they’re even offering free delivery through December 8th.

2. Saint Laurent Betty Medium Chain Calf-Hair Shoulder Bag: I have to say, I’m surprised this one’s on sale. The Betty is an iconic style for the house of Saint Laurent. Do not ask questions; just go for it! For $1,393, from $1,990.
