Mix at your own risk

When a designer decides to go with a blend of vastly different textures, colors, and materials, the results can be lovely and interesting:

Mink, patent leather, fabric, lace and pearls all compete for real estate on this disjointed little mess. It's like the Frankenstein of purses- an uber-ugly handbag constructed from the parts of less offensive bags. To me, though, the worst crime is surprisingly not the $2,040 price tag, but the fact that it mixes silver hardware (the chain, clasp and handle rings) with gold (the protective feet.) For shame!
