Trend Alert: Bag Stickers

Before you freak out…no, this is not permanent! I was horrified when I saw Lady Gaga studding and scribbling on her Birkins, and while Kanye’s gift to Kim Kardashian (an Hermès painted by one-year-old North West) was sweet, it’s something I would never do.

Fendi Micro Peekaboo Tote

Fendi Micro Peekaboo Tote: Micro-Expression

How small is too small? Fendi is one brand that’s willing to test the limits of the baby-sized “carryall.” Their Peekaboo tote is quite possibly the most overrated bag of all time, but I love it so much I can’t resist, even in beyond-shrunken micro size.

It might sound nutty, but here it is: You need to accessorize your accessories right now, namely your bags. Thanks to the still-strong buzz surrounding Fendi’s friendly, furry monsters, this ‘90s trend (remember Prada’s robot charms!) is making a strong comeback.

Fendi Peekaboo Mini Satchel Bag

Fendi Peekaboo Mini Satchel Bag: Take a Peek

Peekaboo, I see you! The Vogue “It” Bag competition hasn’t concluded yet, but I’m calling it now. Fendi’s Peekaboo satchel in mini or micro size is it! While the micro is no doubt the trendier of the two, the mini will be more functional in the long run.
