From brunches to sales and more I am so excited to show you lovelies my partner in crime: this gorgeous black and white snakeskin Carolina Herrera cardholder.
I’d been on the hunt for this chicest of accessories for positively ages. They make the perfect style addition to tiny café tables and I wanted something to keep my cards safe no matter what size bag I carry. As I have a much beloved red Kate Spade full size wallet I kept my search to neutrals and metallics. Additionally this was one of my first luxury investments and so I carefully weighed designs, brands and materials. But in one of those moments where life surprises you, all my carefully planned calculations flew out the window when I saw this beauty sitting in the Carolina Herrera boutique of El Prat Airport on my trip to Barcelona earlier this summer. I have the heart of an artist but the brain of a lawyer as my mother might say so it wasn’t a complete impulse buy. It's actually better value in terms of aesthetic and budget than the previous favorite, light pink with YSL’s signature monogram in gold. However like a siren song Carolina called and my bank card answered. There’s something about black and white that appeals to my love of the classics and snakeskin added exotic intrigue. Thus the smallest of bags, or here a cardholder, makes the biggest statement. It certainly was so for me and now it’s my weapon of choice for my #girlboss adventures in Paris. As seen last Saturday morning in the Marais, along with the green shimmer and black lace of my IKKS camisole, the relaxed drape of Princesse Tam Tam lounge cardigan and my darkest Paige denim skinnies. Un café s’il vous plaît?
