For some girls (including myself), it’s a bit hard to do the bling thing. I sometimes associate with bling with these horribly over-the-top women who have nothing better to do than polish their diamonds, and it’s a crowd I don’t care to identify with. When I laid my eyes on this Jimmy Choo Rikki Metallic Suede Purse, I was singing a different tune.
The Rikki bag is now a mainstay of the Jimmy Choo handbag line, and rightfully so. The tote is casual, but glamorous and it’s easy to swing over your shoulder whether you’re out with girlfriends or picking up the kids from school. Until now, the Rikki was available in a pretty basic group of colors, and when I spotted this metallic suede version, my heart did a pitter-patter. The color is perfect for a metallic: understated and elegant, with a bit of spice. It’s almost a bronze-copper hybrid and tends to have a flash of purple or indigo every so often, depending on which angle it’s sitting. Another plus is the silver hardware allows the bag to take on both metallics, allowing you to easily wear the bag with both silver and gold jewelry. Not everyone is quite as anal about this as I am, but there are a handful of women who struggle with this every day. The bronze Rikki is available at net-a-porter.com and retails for $1,495
