Lauren Moshi certainly makes some cute prints. If you read my post about the Lauren Moshi Leopard Tee, you will see that I have sort of become a sucker for her stuff lately. What really intrigues me is how a lot of her prints are images within images. The leopard’s spots, for example, were actually little skulls. Pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. That is probably why the Lauren Moshi Polly Lace Skull Heart Fringe Tote was so quick to grab my attention!
Like the tee described above, this tote features an image within an image print. Two skulls are mirrored back to back, their crowns forming the two humps of a heart shape outlined in white. It’s a cool design, for sure! I also like the way the white print pops on the black canvas background. The tote itself is a familiar design. Lauren Moshi has produced tons of fringed totes. What I like about this particular version though is how the fringe has a lot more swing to it. I’m not sure, but I think the fringe is made of polyester strings rather than the cotton threads seen on her other totes. Plus if you look closely, you will see the sides of this tote are adorned with a black lace overlay. It gives this tote just a hint of femininity.
