Kate Spade Alaska Bag: Love It or Hate It?


I already told you how shearling accessories are a great, cozy option going into the cold months. Now, here's another furry, fluffy bag to get you through winter. Constructed out of long shearling patchwork, this Kate Spade Alaska Small Eley hobo has hot-pink pom-pom accents, a leather ring handle, and a casual drawstring closure that makes it suitable for daytime or evening. I can't decide if I think this bag is cute, or if it looks too much like something that Barbie might carry on a Tibetan expedition. What do you guys think? Love it or hate it? You can buy the handbag here for $425 here.

Its just plain sad that someone will kill an innocent animal to make such a horrible and ugly bag! You will always get the Truth from me!

I'm not sure why, but I actually like it. I think the pink pompoms are cute!

I've never been a big Kate fan, her bags are so exp and not the best materials. I did really like the picnic ones a while back. This is the worst ever. It makes me itch just thinking about carrying it around.

Not a fan... I guess I like her more classy designs. This is too excessive for me!

I imagine it would be hard to keep clean. Think about it, you're at a bar and you set it on a table only to discover the pool of foo-foo fruity sticky spilled beverage that you set it in. Like getting gum out of your hair.

Nope. That wouldn't last one minute in my house... the animals would be all over it.

it's a cute bag. i'd get it if it came in fake fur. real fur is icky and for mean people.

If it didn't have the pink balls, I'd definitely carry it; BUT...I would wear it with a very simple outfit (think white tee, skinny jeans, flats, no accessories) so I don't look like a too over-the-top.
