I am told that fur is the latest thing in a long string of Fall 2010 trends. Fur is literally everywhere right now! Fur coats, fur vests, fur shoes, and (of course) fur handbags. I am interested in seeing how well this trend will do. After all, people have a lot of mixed feelings about fur. Personally, I am not all that in to fur. It just so happens that I have a couple of rabbits as pets and I absolutely adore them. I couldn’t imagine one of my babies as part of a vest or as a pair of earmuffs (although I sometimes joke they look like bunny slippers). But I am going to do my very best to look at this trend objectively. And I am going to start with the Olivia Harris Fur Baby Ball Bag!
This cute little crossbody bag is a carry-over of the drawstring pouch trend. The bag is constructed of buttery soft lambskin, which was then wrapped in a little fur coat. It comes in two colors, “Bisque” and “Chinchilla”. Both colors are really just dyed rabbit fur. Personally, I like the Bisque better. To me, it looks more natural (they did a very poor job of imitating chinchilla fur… which, by the way, is another cute and cuddly creature I am partial to) and the neutral camel-like color is much more versatile. I am also digging the leather strap with its dainty chain accents. Plus this bag is relatively inexpensive and a great way to dip your toes into the fur trend without breaking the bank!
