Moon Snakeskin Embossed Leather Bag

We're calling it: This fun purse is this season's hottest "it" bag. The unique moon-shaped design by Staud was first seen on the streets of New York Fashion Week on models — like Kendall Jenner — and influencers alike. Not only is this shoulder bag on-trend, it comes without the quadruple-digit price tag of some other designer handbags. The beautiful tan snakeskin-embossed leather pairs well with jeans and a camel-colored sweater or a chic all-black ensemble for date night. We're definitely adding this trendy purse to our wish list for the holidays — unless we treat ourselves first.
