One of the keys to an interesting outfit is texture (along with color, pattern, and shine). I've been obsessed with the lizard-embossed leather styles at Henri Bendel lately and snatched up this one once it went on sale. It'd make a great tote for carrying with my on a plane or when I need a little extra room for my things. By adding a crochet tank and some bow-tie heels, I've got the making of a perfectly textured look. I am always an advocate of adding a pop of color, a metallic accessory, or something unique to a look to make it your own.
