Marilyn >> Now that I've got your attention with the shocking headline, I've got an interesting little tidbit for you.  Susan Glen, designer extraordinaire of Tit Totes, is fashioning handbags out of bras.  No, I'm not even joking -- she sews the cups together, uses the hooks as a clasp, and the straps as...straps.  Then, she decorates each tote by hand, adding sequins, fringe, and whatever else may Audrey strike her fancy.  Her designs are inspired by Old Hollywood -- her "Marilyn" (Monroe) design is above ($230), and her "Audrey" (Hepburn) to the right ($195).

My first reaction is TACKY!, to be honest.  I mean, I like sequins, I'm eh about the fringe, but the whole using-a-bra-as-a-purse thing, not so sure about.  I could see how some people would see it as "empowering" or whatever, but I mean, really do we need to go back to the '70s, when women were doing crazy things like burning their bras?  If you want to show off your bra, I think it's much sexier peeking out of a suit than so...just...out there.  And besides, on more general terms, I just plain don't find them cute.  BUT, if you wanted me to pick my Eleanorfavorite, I would have to say the "Eleanor" (Roosevelt), because it's actually somewhat classy looking (left, $150). 

All that said, I have to hand it to Ms. Glen -- at least she has a sense of humor. When asked about her inspiration:

"...Maybe I should make a Cheeto and beef jerky-themed Tit Tote, and name it Britney."
