ALL THE RAGE

New York fashion trends never fail to surprise and amaze me. Years ago I gave up trying to keep up with what is currently trendy and cool. Now I'm lucky if I can even motivate to take a shower in the morning.

On my lunch break today I walked around taking photos with my camera and spotted a truly...RIDICULOUS bag a woman was carrying. If only I'd captured the horrifed reactions of everyone around her as they too thought it was crazy.

First I spotted the women walking down the street with what appeared to be a very stiff dog in her arms. Then as she got closer and stepped in front of me did I realize...wait...this wasn't an actual dog but a spooky, strange, stiff, taxidermied looking dog shaped purse... Again - if you could only have seen the reactions of the UPS guy, the diners outside of Pastis, the kids walking by, the tourists, the meat market guys, etc. all taking in this spooky taxidermied purse.

And thanks to RION who found the photos of purses that looked like THIS and THIS

the taxidermist's design execution of the bag is falling short. they should tuck the front and back legs under the dog, as if it is being carried by its owner. THEN you've got a full concept!

btw, i did some googling:

who knew i'd ever google "taxidermy dog purse?"

Now let's not be too critical. Perhaps the poor lady has a phobia about cats. Her purse should provide a zone of protection to help her relax. Right?

is it a real taxidermied dog tho?
I dont know if you've seen them but they were onthe news this week over here that you can actually get taxidermied piglets and use them as bags. it's so so so so wrong. i cant find a picture but it was on the cover of G2.
