The market for handbag accessories has been exploding every since Fendi debuted its immediately sold-out Bag Bugs, and this holiday season finds us with more options than every to make our everyday bags look a little newer, a little more personal and a lot more fun.

In a certain way, the rise and continued popularity of bag charms makes a lot of sense. Handbag are incredibly expensive, and although most bag charms aren’t exactly cheap, buying one to put on a more classic bag in your arsenal is a lot more cost-effective than buying a whole novelty bag that you may only use sporadically or for a single season.

The first run of the Fendi Karlito Bag Charm was so successful that I never actually saw one for sale anywhere, either online or in stores. The wait lists were long, and although Megs was able to get on one and get a Karlito of her own, plenty of people who wanted to carry the tiny, furry visage of Karl Lagerfeld were out of luck.

With the unmitigated success of the teeny-tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, it was only a matter of time before other brands started giving their loyal shoppers the option of adorning their new handbags with a newer, smaller handbag.

When the Fendi Bag Bug came along a few seasons ago, it practically created its own fashion category: the bag accessory. Although bag charms had had pockets of popularity here and there, especially in Asian markets, a high-end worldwide trend like the one going right now is something of a first, and consumers have more options than ever.

We are living in a golden age of things to hang from your handbag. Bag charms have been reasonably well-liked since back in the day of the ultra-collectable Prada robots, but it’s the Fendi Bag Bugs that have really rocketed the accessory-on-accessory look to its current popularity.

Just like last season, Fendi Bag Bugs are super-covetable and genuinely hard to find in a way that few things in the accessories world are right now. They sell out so quickly in stores that I’ve never actually seen one in person for sale, and when you search the term “Fendi” on Bergdorf Goodman’s website, it’s likely no coincidence that they’re the first thing that pops up to represent the entire brand.

Fendi’s Fall 2013 runway was full of fur used in inventive ways, from neon zebra-striped bags to shoes that feature multicolored mohawks for your ankles. If it had surface area, Karl Lagerfeld probably found a way to make it fuzzy.

Usually, Louis Vuitton artist collaborations are easy to describe. The French brand tends to err on the side of big, bold, graphic visuals, and subtlety usually isn’t a common trait among its collections with the likes of Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami. To say that the twee, low-fi animation of the brand’s recent video, The Great Journey of Little Bagcharms, is unexpected would be an understatement. It’s a good kind of unexpected, though.

Vuitton teamed up with artist Christian Borstlap to animate this short film to fete the launch of the new Louis Vuitton Montgolfiere Bag Charm, a hot air balloon carrying a classic trunk. Even if you have little interest in the charm itself, the video’s old school line drawings and the sweet song that accompanies them are a nice little respite from your lunchtime food coma. Check out a larger picture of the charm and pricing information after the jump. (more…)

Gucci Oliver Pug Dog Key Chain, $185 via Net-a-Porter

Have any of you ladies ever seen Life with Father? It’s a 1947 movie starring Irene Dunne and a 15-year-old Elizabeth Taylor, and it is absolutely hysterical. If you’ve never seen it, it’s a great movie to watch with your mom while visiting over the holidays, if you can get your hands on a DVD copy. I can personally promise that you’ll laugh more than you ever have at a classic movie.

The reason that Life with Father is relevant to a post about the Gucci Oliver Pug Dog Key Chain should be obvious to anyone familiar with the movie – in it, Irene Dunne has an unbelievably funny argument with her long-suffering husband over how she intends to get their son a suit of clothes for free from a department store by returning a ceramic statuette of a pug (which she calls a “pug dog” each time she refers to it), and the idea of returning one item to justify the purchase of another and convincing yourself that you’re getting the second for “free” should sound familiar to most shopping addicts. I’d never return this cute little pup, though. Not a chance. (more…)

It’s upon us, you guys. The holiday shopping season. It keeps starting earlier and earlier, but I refuse even to utter the words “holiday shopping” before Halloween is dead and buried. Today’s date is November 3rd, so I guess it’s time to stop pretending that Christmas isn’t barreling at us at top speed and start thinking about potential gifts. For those of you who refuse to think about Christmas until after Thanksgiving, I completely understand, but I like to beat the rush.

Today, I’d like to tackle the question of what you buy for a bag lover when your budget isn’t huge. Someone who regularly treats themselves to bags worth four figures is a hard person to shop for, after all, when your target price range for a gift is likely somewhat lower. For me, the perfect answer is a bag charm. All of the ones we’ve chosen can double as a chic key fob if the recipient would rather not hang anything on the outside of her bag, but I’d display any of these proudly. Sometimes it’s fun to make your bag your own. (more…)

I’ve never been a big believer in bag charms, but if you like to add a little extra oomph to your purses, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Snow Bunting Donna Bag Charm and Marc by Marc Jacobs Industrial Facet Bag Charm will probably be right up your alley. (more…)
