Furla Blush Croc Embossed Leather ‘Greta’ Tote
I love the color pink, so much so that when I see a handbag in pink I’m pretty much like a kid in the candy store and I have to have it. Usually, I have to calm down and tell myself it would just be an impulse buy. Right now I’m loving the pink Furla Greta croc embossed leather tote. It does look like Furla was a little inspired by the Hermes Birkin but this tote is absolutely gorgeous. If the leather was real crocodile skin this tote would be to die for. I love the shape, the metal feet at the bottom, and of course having the leather strap laced through the brackets is a stunning bonus. One huge flaw about this bag, in my opinion, is that it weighs 2 pounds. Yes, that might not sound like a lot, but if you are like me and you carry practically your whole dresser in your bag it may get kind of heavy after a while. I think this handbag is gorgeous, but I won’t lie, it may come off as a fake Hermes Birkin.
This handbag retails for $540 but Bluefly has lowered it to $348. Not so bad for a beautiful handbag, if you like pink. This bag is not offered in any other color on Bluefly, so if you aren’t loving the color this will probably be a pass for you.
