Faux Fox Cross-body Purse – a statement piece that will dial up the cool on even the plainest of outfits in the perfect size to fit just the essentials for (any type of) date out.
This isn’t exactly my latest find. We’ve had this faux foxy cross-body purse (that I decided to name Liska, which in Macedonian means foxy) for like ever. Truth be told, I’m not exactly sure where did it come from. I think that it was a birthday gift for Angela… And I think it was from our neighbors who live right next door, which if it’s true makes Liska all the more special.
Anyway, the purse has been hanging out in the box designated for our bags and purses, like I said, for a long time, but I’ve never actually worn it. See, I usually have one or two bags that work with pretty much everything, that I wear over a certain period of time, meaning until and a little while they’re noticeably worn out to the bone. I usually have them (well, at least the one) all packed with stuff I need when I’m heading out. This is perfect when I’m in a rush going out, which is often, so.. totally works. On the other hand, I get kinda lazy with these types of habits (it goes well beyond just purses), so I end up wearing the same piece just right before I start resenting it. Luckily, neither me or Angela have ever considered the option of throwing the foxy purse away, we kinda knew we’d wanna wear it sometimes & spice things up.
So, the other day, I’ve stumbled upon Liska in the box for the 17th time (it’s just a random number, I wasn’t actually counting). The moment I saw it I was like “Why the hell am I not rocking this?” It’s quite the statement piece that will dial up the cool on even the plainest of outfits. It’s small enough so quite easy to carry, but just about the right size for all the things I actually need and use when on fun day/night out for drinks, dates with friends and whatnot (like my phone, pack of cigarettes, lip balm, money, keys..). Plus, it’s just so soft.
Fun Story // The other day I took Liska with me (I wore it for the first time) over at my friend Dragana’s house, and her adorable twin girls Kaja & Daja completely lost it when they saw the purse. At first, they’d just touch it with their cute little fingers and would then start laughing, then they petted it, and carried it around (especially Daja)… Quite the hit from the start, this Liska purse…
*Note The only downside of the faux fox purse is that it leaves “hair” on the clothes, which is especially noticeable on black.
