It’s a Croc Thing

I love textured leather. My first love was ostrich leather and I still remember walking down aisles of lit display cases with my sister daydreaming about one day buying each and every pebbled bag I laid my eyes on. I graduated to coveting crocodile embossed designs pretty quickly and the good news is that croc is coming back in a big way.

Aside from being the stuff of my teenage dreams, texture is also a quick way to dress up a simple style without going overboard on the embellishment (although if a bag can serve drama I am most certainly here for it.) Personally I prefer something on the smaller side – an embossed tote can be cute, but unless you’re careful it can also be a bit much.

Carrying a crocodile handbag isn’t just about the incredible texture, though. It’s the epitome of luxury. If you don’t have a croc in your collection, it’s time to get a move on.
