I remember when I was younger, before I even had a car let alone a house key, I was obsessed with key chains. I used to collect them and just have a bunch of key chains without a key. Normal I know. My personal favorite? A purple lucky rabbit’s foot I won from Chuck E. Cheese.
Now, as a “grown up,” my passion for accessorizing has not waivered, nor has my love for a good keychain. Recently, we have started seeing a trend transitioning key chains into bag charms. Luxury designers such as Louis Vuitton and Prada have made this look a runway success. This Fashionista took the bag charm from the runway to the sidewalk with her own take on the trend. As a person who covets all things fur, this Fashionista’s bag accessory is no exception. The faux-raccoon tail is a conversation starter and a fashion statement. The color of the fur is really the linchpin of her entire ensemble. From her tan cap to her black scarf, the bag charm brings all the colors together.
A bag charm is the perfect way to spice up an older bag with relatively little expense. The faux fur charm on this Fashionista’s bag transformed her tote from classic to downtown chic in an instant. Etsy is full of great options to chose from to meet your fashion needs and your college budget.
