Timmy Woods Monkey Palm Crystals Purse, Handbag of the Day
Timmy Woods is a Beverly Hills-based designer who produces "wearable art" handbags that are inspired by handmade wooden boxes. In fact, each of the purses is hand-carved from Acacia trees in almost any form imaginable, from pop art shapes to seasonal ones. The appeal of these designs is that they are very collectible and are produced in extremely limited runs. You can even commission a custom design, if you'd rather see Barbaro on a purse than Seabiscuit, for example. This Monkey Palm Crystals bag is one of the more glamorous bags, as it is adorned with sparkling, multi-colored crystals and just a touch more eye-catching than the plainer pieces even though it has one of the most conservative shapes of all the bags. It depicts a fun, tropical scene that wouldn't look out of place during a night out on some warm, romantic island. Price: $1,000.
