Maybe it’s the photo flash, but all I see when I look at this ultra-slick black Jimmy Choo Patent Tote is, um, an oil spill. (Of course, this summer’s sky-high gas prices can make anyone have petrol-related hallucinations.) Size-wise, the tote is ideal for running errands and cramming your essentials inside, and I love the glam gold chain strap detail. But, fan of patent though I may be, the overly rubbery/slippery look of this leather is a tad too - dare I say it? - kinky for my tastes. The tote’s structure may say day-to-day convenience, but that patent is all sex dungeon.
