Fall 2012 Trends – Exotics

As you shop this fall, you will see exotic prints everywhere. Snake print skinny jeans are the most popular version of this trend. Not everyone feels comfortable wearing strong animal prints, but it is much more wearable in accessories. This week to celebrate our 1st anniversary, Purse Dreams is offering 30% off full priced and an additional 10% off sale priced exotics. Here are some of my favorites.

This satchel from Rebecca Minkoff is made from stingray embossed leather. I love how the silver stingray like leather gives a bit of shine without being too bold. This classic shape holds a ton and even has a shoulder strap for when you need to have your hands free.

This style is absolutely one of my new favorites from Rebecca Minkoff. A simple envelope shaped wallet on a chain. The chain can be removed for use as a wallet or a clutch. These come in a variety of colors, but these two show how exotics are not that scary in a small accessory.

These totes show another exotic trend in accessories. Calf hair or pony hair has been a popular choice in high-end handbags and shoes since it adds texture in addition to the variety of color possibilities. I personally think these Bordeaux Totes from Pour La Victoire uses the perfect amount of fall color blocking in an elegant shape. The winged gussets are also very trendy this year.

This final bag is the Rebecca Minkoff Lucious hobo in Python print. For a fraction of the cost of real python, this bag will fool most people. The silver hardware is a great compliment to the print on this roomy hobo.

Spice up your wardrobe this fall with an exotic accessory and get a great deal in the process! Have a great week.

These are the Linsey in black snake. This simple cat eye shape is so unique with the snake embossed leather. These are the sunglasses that will make people look twice.

Another one of my favorite styles is the Chantal in classic tortoise. A larger shape than the Linsey, but not overwhelming. The classic coloring makes this pair one that you will wear with everything.

The last pair I’m showing you today is the Emily in panther. The pearlized panther print pops on the face and I love the contrast of the matte brass bridge on this piece. Retro cool.
