Is ostrich embossed passe? I have seen a very pretty domed black ostrich-embossed satchel at Dillard's that I thought about buying but is ostrich passe and if so, what is the reason? The reason is what concerns me.

Embossed leather, like ostrich and croco, are classics. They get extra fashion focus every few years, especially in the fall and winter, when 'texture' seems to capture the fashion looks.
If you want an embossed leather handbag like ostrich to look like it might be the real thing ( a high end luxury item), then stick to black, brown, or cognac colors. They are the most realistic looking.
On the other hand, if you just love the look of ostrich and croco leathers, then go for it in any color that pleases you. That's what I do. I have a large collection of Dooney ostrich embossed handbags.... black, cognac, pink, bone, orange, red, and 'jeans'. The black and bone are my favorites. I've had the black ostrich one for many years, and it gets softer and softer all the time. The other advantage of black is that if over time the color wears a little on the corner of the handbag, it's easy to 'fix' with a permanent marker.

I think Ostrich is always a classic. Right now it isn't on trend but I don't think of it as out of date. I've been carrying a brahmin bone ostrich embossed bag on and off this summer.

Thank you, each and everyone. You have convinced me to buy that D&B at Dillard's that is about one-third off and what I have been awaiting. Thanks a million. Ka ching to my credit card.

No, they're not dated. Even if they were, I like what I like and I like ostrich embossing. Our own preferences are pretty much what mattters.

I bought one about a month ago. There's a thread with a picture somewhere. I love the look, so I wouldn't (and don't) care if it's in or out of style.
