The CROC-EFFECT Bag
Street style stars love this luxurious (yet affordable) trend, and I must say, it’s one of my favorite trends of the year as well! By Far has been leading the way with the croc-embossed bags, and their unique and eye-catching pastel colored bags are what summer is all about. Their mini-tote holds only the essentials (I don’t think that includes an iPhone XS…) but packs a punch with its adorable glossy green, croc-effect leather.
