I am sorry, I'm just not a fan of this fad, yet. I'm waiting to see it done tastefully. Until then, here is what the NYT had to say about this latest craze for Purse Charms:

"A fad for hanging charms on handbags has the city a-jingle. Schoolchildren started it when they hung stuffed animals from their backpacks. A few years ago Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, a French stylist, dangled change purses and charms from her bag. Today some women spend up to $250 for a Prada doodad; others buy souvenir-shop key rings. One woman chopped up telephone cords to adorn her purse."
