In all honesty, whimsy isn’t really my thing. Not just in fashion, but in any kind of art, music, literature, or film. I didn’t watch many cartoons as a kid and I’ve always hated science fiction and fantasy in books and movies. So cutesy little things really aren’t my shtick, but I still love the Marc by Marc Jacobs Owl Wristlet, in spite of myself.
I also loved the Marc by Marc Jacobs Flights of Fancy shopper from the same line, and for the very reasonably price of $98, I’m considering adding one of these adorable little wristlets to my collection. Not that I’m sure what I’d use it for, or what I’d wear it with, or how much it can hold, because I’m not. But the layering is so cute (it kind of reminds me of South Park characters) and the materials so clever that I can hardly restrain myself. Buy through ShopBop for $98.
