Bag Charm accessories—Pom-Poms, Pom-pons, Bag Bugs.
Just take a gander at any one of your favorite Celebrities Instagram pages feeds and you’ll see that they’re everywhere; multiplying like the cute fuzzy-wuzzy-furry little creatures in the Goonies movies. Gigi Hadid, Olivia Palermo, Kylie Jenner, and Cara Delevigne are just a few of the celebs who have become completely ATTACHED to clipping these cutesy charms onto their bags. It’s all about personalization, with the logic being that identical handbags can be made to look different with the mere addition of one or more of the attention-getting bag charms. It does seem sort of logical when you really think about it. And the big name designers (Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Hermes) have all been on accessories watch, wanting to cash in on the idea, anticipating a bauble boom. Fendi released a version of the bag charm called the Karlito Buggie, after renowned designer Karl Lagerfeld and there was an actually a wait-list. Super unbelievable? It’s not a bird, or a plane, but the same special edition Karl Lagerfeld buggies that are selling for thousands of dollars on Ebay, from sellers looking to score big profits.
Bag Charm Accessories – More Than a Style Accessory
For those of you who believe that Bag Charm Accessories may be nothing but a fad, you may want to reconsider. A bag charm can do double duty in serving as both a charm or a key ring holder. And while we’re on the subject of style, if you’re one of those fashionistas who’s totally against fur, you still can stand your ground. Bag Charms also come in faux fur, silver, or even metallic gold .

A bag charm that you’ll grow to CHERISH? Hmmm…stranger things have happened in the world of accessories.
