Vintage alligator bag $490, Vintage Skins.com
Dozens of dames dig dogs for animal companionship, more kittens cuddle cats, still others adore a significant other.
And I collect company of glammy dead animals for the same reasons average Angies purchase pets: ostrich purses are attention getters when I walk with them, vintage mink has me meeting other animal lovers (“Your coat isn’t real, is it? It is, isn’t it?”). And unlike Fido, whose favor fades fast, dead animals retain their value.
My current craving is for a Victorian alligator bag, detailed with gator hands. Perfectly primal and urbane, the alligator bag celebrates my topping the food chain, it’s a carnivorous carry-on ensuring an empty seat next to me on the flying bus, it’s a sensible satchel for sensitive souls above constantly killing cotton for clothing.
Totally boss, though I wonder–
Maybe there’s a version of the bag with a vegetarian’s paws?
