Give a pop of color with a ‘candy woolley’ handbag to a one color outfit, or break rules by mixing them with patterned prints as often seen on the major runways. Candy Woolley’s signature metallic python skins also add a luxurious touch to an evening event on or off the red carpet.

During the month of December 2014, tour the Sheila Payne Art Gallery at Plaza Del Mar in Manalapan, Palm Beach, Florida.
