CC Skye Medium Bag
After seeing “Hills” starlet Lauren Conrad sport a bag by CC Skye, I thought I’d check out what other bags they have in their collection. And after visiting their website, I totally fell in love with the Skye Medium Bag in Tobacco. The gold hardware, which is actually 18k gold plated, really compliments the smooshy brown leather. This bag is luxurious, classic, and stylish all in one. The interwoven leather chain strap detail somewhat reminds me of classic Chanel, and I could see how some might think it looks Chanel-inspired. But for me, it doesn’t matter because it’s more of using a similar style and this bag is just lovely. It’s even reasonably priced at $695.
This bag also comes in black and creme if you’re not a fan of the tobacco. Another thing that is super about this purse is the fact that you can remove the straps and wear them as chunky bracelets, which are sold seperately by CC Skye, and have been a favorite accessory of many celebs including Nicole Richie and Hillary Duff. Also what’s great about this bag is the leather shoulder strap it comes with. So if you’re carrying it by the chain straps and your arm gets tired, you can just comfortably throw it over your shoulder with the flat strap.
What do you think of this bag by cc Skye?
