Lady with the Alligator Purse
Out went the lady with the alligator purse. Out on the town, that is! Alligator purses are all the rage these days, and they don’t come cheap–even a smallish clutch will run you between $1000-2000. But if you’re like most young ladies living in NYC, you’re lucky if you can scrape together $2000 for your rent, let alone for a purse! How do you get the purse without the pain? Look into alternatives to alligator such as embossed leather or ostrich. Embossed leather purses are made to look like alligator skin, and can be bought for around $100. Ostrich purses are made from ostrich legs and start at around $150 and go up from there. The song might not sound as good:
Miss lucy called the doctor,
Miss Lucy called the nurse,
Miss Lucy called the lady with the embossed leather purse…
…but the purse will look just as good and your wallet will look even better!
