Recently savvy sister received a Louis Vuitton handbag charm as a gift. We scoffed at the gift until she attached the charm on a Monogram bag. The charm is truly charming on the casual tote. I don’t think the effect will be the same on a formal or structured handbag but the colorful charm is so cute against the Monogram backdrop. It’s is a bit pricey at $435 but I have my own alternatives. I used available jewel pieces to create a customize purse charm. Savvy sister giggled at my attempt because my DIY project cost more than her bag charm. Imagine if a piece falls off, I will cry like a baby. Perhaps this is not such a savvy idea. However, I found a Betsy Johnson charm necklace for $125 which will work like a charm as an alternative. Just loop the necklace around the hardware and adjust the length to your liking. It’s quite a fun adventure for me. What is your perfect handbag charm?
