Snake Charm: Python Accessories for Fall
Confession: I love Indiana Jones. I’ve seen all the movies at least a hundred times, read all the books, and I have (in a secret stash in my apartment) several Indiana Jones action figures. He was strong, sexy, and not afraid of anything, except snakes. I always dreamed of being in Egypt with Indiana, when he goes to the pit to find the lost ark, and the pit is full of asps…the old Egyptian guy says to Indy, “You go first,” and I, knowing his loathe for anything that slithers, say, “No, Indy, let me go first.” And I lower myself down into the pit and kill every last snake, so that when Indiana comes down into the pit he is so grateful that he pulls me into his arms and ravishes me right there, before the lost Ark and the Ten Commandments. Then I would turn the snakes into fabulous accessories, like belts or watches.
Python watches are very hot right now, as are Python hand bags and snakeskin belts. The thing about snakeskin is that it is very earthy–and you know how great Indiana looked in earthtones. However if earthtones don’t ring your bell, you can always find Python in other colors, even pink, yellow, and blue. BCBG makes a gorgeous watch with an ivory colored Python strap and crystals. Invicta makes a lavender Python watch, and a pink Python watch with diamonds (that costs significantly more). If you really want to spend some money, get a Tag Heuer Monaco watch–it comes in black, and it’s unisex, so if they have a buy one get one sale, you can get for you and your Indiana too!
