Do you want to carry around an armadillo this summer?

I saw this little guy on katespade.com a few days ago and just had to post about him! Last summer I purchased the elephant basket bag from kate spade. He was the cutest! Now that I have seen the armadillo I really don't know what to think. I live in Texas where these are road kill. It is sad but you see them everywhere upside down on the side of the road. I think that if I could get that image out of my mind, I would really like this bag. He is darling for an armadillo! As with the elephant, the opening of the bag is small, and the wicker is delicate. This would only be a special occasion bag at best. Maybe even a single occasion bag! I found that with he elephant, it wouldn't stay hanging on my chair at a restaurant and I didn't want him on the floor. In a booth he took up too much room and was easily crunched. Crunching with wicker means breaking... I would suggest that If you really love him and want to adopt him for a pet, go for it! Otherwise, you should pass and get a fun summer tote!

That is the most adorable purse EVER! I would love it - if I could afford it - since it's not practical and a little more just for fun.

I totally agree with you. I bought this bag since I was also a fellow Texan, but it will be going back on Monday. It is too small and it would be cute to display but that is about al.

Thanks for the review! You confirmed my suspicions.

I just received the Eat Cake for Breakfast tote. I love it! I need to use it fast before my daughter claims it. It's roomy, slides easily over my shoulder, and is just the right mix of structure and slouch. Have you seen it in person? Fan or not?
