To Buy Or Not To Buy

Would you spend $800 on a bag charm? What if it had eyes and was this adorable?

Perhaps the heat is getting to me. Or maybe I'm developing a hyper sensitivity to all things cute. Either way, I have been moved by the latest phenomena that is the Fendi bag charm. These furry lil creatures are a way for everyone to carry a critter with them everywhere they go. Cant take your dog to your dentist appointment? That's OK, take this furry friend. Fendi has your back.

The Fendi version is real fur; mink and fox fur to be exact, and is even adorned with Swarovski crystals. They go for upwards of $700 depending on the mixture of furs and embellishments. 

I know that fur, and spending $700 on a key chain isn't for everyone, so I present to you a healthy alternative.

Meet Lenny, the faux fur bag charm 
Awwwww. isn't he aborable? Look at the little button nose, and those bright blue eyes. Cutie! 

Lenny is faux fur and can be yours for only $75. That's only a fraction of the price you would pay for the Fendi version, or a puppy, or a child (if you're just in the market for something soft and cute) Lenny is made by Shrimps a newly launched UK based faux-fur fashion label, and they have not one but TWO freaking Dalmatians on their website, so no doubt they are pretty awesome. No Cruella de Vil  here. I would love to get my hands on not only Lenny to hottie but one of their colorful coats, check them out here

Oh hey there Lenny

So whats your take on the fuzzy bag charm trend? Would you be willing to add a little fluff to your accessories this fall?


  1. Aw I love Lenny! He's perfect. I'd have to go with "not to buy." I never spend more than $200 on something ultra-trendy--I have to make my money stretch somehow! haha


  2. Lenny is adorable!!! I don't know if I would go so far as to buy the super expensive version though...
