It’s the Little Things That Make a [Stylish] Lady

July 15, 2015

SuthinGirl loves a touch of luxe in her everyday items. You carry your keys and phone around with you wherever you go, so why not be thoughtful in your choices and let them express your personality and style to the world?

I’ve noticed most major labels have been working their accessories designers overtime! The variety and creativity of items like key rings, bag charms and iPhone cases has skyrocketed over the past several years, and there are so many fabulous items to choose from within every price point.

Today we’ll take a peek at a few of my favorite key rings and bag charms. Some of those listed below are clearly aspirational thanks to their hefty price tags. But as you’ll see in the Fur section below (yes, we have a fur section today), you can find the look you like for a lot less if you’re willing to do a little hunting. I’ll get you started!

Up Next: iPhone cases so captivating they’ll have you glancing at your phone even more than you already do! Gasp!

KEY RINGS & BAG CHARMS

Whether your taste leans toward the whimsical, classic, trendy or some combination of all three, there’s a key ring and bag charm out there just waiting for you! Okay, maybe it’s a little kitschy, but I love expressing my sense of humor with my key ring. It’s fun handing the valet my keys and seeing their expression change when they notice it.

Kelly Wearstler Legs Key Ring $125

I first learned about the designer Kelly Wearstler a couple of years ago when my husband and I were on vacation at the fabulous Viceroy Anguilla. Wearstler designed the resort’s interiors (see below) , and her work is breathtaking. This key ring reminds me of that trip and of lounging poolside or diving into the blue water. Perfect for summertime!

Looking at these pics of the Viceroy Anguilla makes me happy sigh. Alrighty then, back to key rings and bag charms!

CLASSIC

If you are so inclined, there are amazing baubles over at Louis Vuitton and Hermes that SuthinGirl would be thrilled to take you to see. Brands such as Coach and Rebecca Minkoff have similar versions of classically designed key rings and bag charms with their logos stylishly incorporated (see below), and they cost a fraction of the goodies at LV.

This picture doesn’t do the tassel justice! It’s two-tone with black and a beautiful teal blue leather.


TREND: FUR

Fendi, Sophie Hulme and many other luxury designers are driving today’s fur key ring and bag charm trend. They totally remind me of the pom poms that hung from cords at the neck of my white rabbit fur jacket I adored when I was ten!

This pretty little Fendi Pink Fox Fur Key Ring retails for around $325.

This one by Bari Lynn is genuine fox fur like the Fendi one above and comes in a several colors.

Fendi Monster Fur Charm for Handbag $850

With fox, goat, mink and rabbit fur and calfskin leather trim you’re practically sporting a whole farm. You have to have a pretty cheeky sense of humor, confident personal style, and $850 to pull this one off. I think the eyes are hilarious! However, if I had to choose between this little guy and a pair of classic Christian Louboutin heels…No. Contest. Fun though!


Like SuthinGirl’s mama always says, “It’s the little things that make a [stylish] lady.”
