This picture from styleeast made me realise that among my useless collection of virtual pictures, 'animal bags' seem to be somewhat recurrent. I don't owe one (yet), the closest I have is a zebra pattern one but the idea of having a little animal near my hips just makes me smile. Isn't it like the fashion equivalent of horse broomsticks? Okay some stretch but I don't know, it tickles my heart the same way as when I was 7 0r 8 and was dragging my teddy bear with a home-made leash, pretending it was a real puppy... mmh animal bags could well be the remedy for animal lovers living in tiny flats... well that's gonna be my medical excuse anyway for this very soon purchase.
Apart from having a lovely Italian owl bag, clothes horse wrote about this amazing etsy boutiqe TsuruBride, specialised in the making of metallic clutch bags in the shape of animals. There's even a platypus... how ultimately cool is that?!
And one could not talk about fashion without the mandatory mention to Alexa Chung... "Animal bags... been there, done that"
