I watched Bill Cunningham, fashion photographer for the New York Times, talk about the prevalence of purse charms or handbag accessories in The Big Apple yesterday. Some designers are using the charms for political commentary and some are using them to make tons of money, but it inspired me to look for some DIY ideas for gifts for the ladies in my life. Pinterest has a lot of ideas using beads and charms, but I’m hoping to come up with my own design. I like the fur pompoms from Fendi; I’ll be looking for faux fur options. Wish me luck – ho ho ho!!
