Bag Bug


Fendi Archy Bag Bug 


Some investments aren't actually investments, but that's totally okay.

I've been meaning to share my little friend that I got from my Italy trip as a personal souvenir. It's been a long time now that I've been obsessed with these Fendi bag bugs. For many, these are either really cute or really hideous, but personally, I think that they really grow on you.

Mine's a little grumpy, but it makes me smile every time I look at it (I still don't have a name for it yet, so I'm all ears for suggestions)!

In the States these are extremely hard to find, and 2x the price that it would cost in Europe. Even though they were slightly cheaper in Europe, still they were pricey for what a bag charm should cost.

When I picked up this one, I had in mind for something that would go well with my Proenza Schouler. Originally, I had my eyes on the green version of this bag bug, but I decided last minute that I would go with this one instead just because the fur was much fuller on this one.

As pictured, these bag charms come with their own boxes and dust bags as well as an authentication card listing the different types of furs that they're made up.

If you're looking to invest in one, I would suggest to carefully pick and choose them personally in store as opposed to ordering them online. When I was at the boutique in Milan, I was given two options of the same one and I did notice that there were slight difference in fluff-ness. I actually went with the brown and pink one just because the only green available was very awkward looking. I would also suggest bringing the bag that you are looking to pair the charm with to try on at the store as well. At one point, I had several bag charms on my PS11 and it made it very easy for me to see which one I prefer most.

For now, I don't think I'll be starting a collection with these any time soon, but I would really love to know what you guys think of these! I know these aren't the type of "investments" that I usually make -- but I think the happiness it brings me is actually quite worth it (just because I feel like I'm always carrying my memories of Italy with me around all of the time).
