Trend Alert: Ostrich Bags

Warning: These handbags will make a dent in your bank account. It's my duty to let you into the wonderful world of ostrich bags.

These spotted confections are a luxurious investment you won't regret. The rare texture stands out from the crowd, not to mention all the rich color choices. If you think about it, a $2,000 bag spanned across a lifetime isn't so bad. Did I convince you?

Uh huh... so how is being raised in a tiny cage ok? I guess your standards of being raised "well" differ from mine. Somehow living for the sole purpose of dying just isn't okay to me. You seriously think any of these animals are being treated humanely? No. They're being treated decent enough to just keep them alive until they're ready to be harvested for their skins. I wouldn't want that treatment for myself, my cats, or thus for any other living creature. It's not okay and it IS selfish.

Right on Jessie. And I would certainly not spend $5000+ on a purse... Even if I could afford it. I'd rather travel

of course the one I like the most (the purple Marc Jacobs one) would have to be the most expensive...

While these bags do nothing for me and I'm not interested in buying them (no can I afford to). I would like to clarify that killing an animal and animal cruelty are very different things. Just as wearing leather killed from a cow who can produce enough leather for 3 coats and can also be eaten is different than killing 200 animals for one coat from an environmental perspective. An animal can be raised well and killed humanely (thats what halal as it pertains to diet in Islam is based on). That is all.

Oh hell no, I must say that aesthetically the look of the leather does nothing for me - and coming from the land of the ostrich, those leather bags can found in any tourist shop here. I can just picture all the foreign ladies walking around in their safari gear (in the middle of the city! ha ha!) having just bought a bright purple ostrich handbag from their friendly neighbourhood curio shop. PS: cadi con carne, their meat is certainly not wasted, it's very tasty and healthier than beef. Try an ostrich steak sometime (if you're not a vegetarian). Ostrich burgers are also delish.

I won't wear it if I won't eat it...I don't like the thought of waste. Ostrich is neat looking, I guess, but it doesn't fit my rules for myself. Redo the Stam in another material, though...:)

OR you could DONATE that money to a sanctuary to keep beautiful animals safe from monsters who would want to wear them. FurSugar, weren't you just lamenting the other day over the Queen's bear hats? Hy. po. crite.

Same here, bellaressa! I like ostrich bags, but not any of these. Sorry.

Why is it every time I see something I like, I always zoom on the most expensive.

Having style doesn't have to mean being cruel to animals... I'll stick with my (not-so-ridiculously-priced) synthetic bags.

That purple Marc Jacobs one is amazing!!! But with a $5,500 price tag, unfortunately, it will never be mine :(
