I am a handbag addict. I love to buy, collect, window shop for and write about handbags. And for the most part, I love all styles and for those that I am not in love with, I can at least have an appreciation for the design and effort that went behind creating it. But today, I am stumped and shocked and a bit confused with Judith Leiber's Pigtail Miniaudier
. I am definitely not in love with this cute little pig and I am desperately trying to appreciate the craftsmanship behind this - but this is a hard one. The Pigtail Miniaudier is thoroughly adorned with multicolor Austrian crystals resulting in a eye catching design but perhaps more suited for an ultra luxurious piggy bank or a decorative accent piece for a child's bedroom. I realize that Leiber is known for her out of the box and kooky designs, but I think this might be pushing it. Who wants to carry a little pig as a bag? Dimensions: 4 1/2"H x 3 1/2"W. Price: $3,600.
