Mandy Coon 'Ginny' Bunny bag + iPhone = ♥LOVE♥. What's not to like about a rabbit? As a child, I adored my pet bunny & now this purse is my constant companion - see Amélie & her garden gnome. I'm documenting our dalliance on Instagram, the best part of iPhone. Here are a week's worth of snapshots - spot the bunny...
HOW I MET BUNNY: My magazine madness means possessing pages of gorgeous editorials is (almost) as good as owning the designs themselves. My collection features the bunny bag not only in a recent issue of Teen Vogue, but also a 2010 Elle. Happy ending: after much research, I adopted bunny from Mandy Coon's studio.

Curious about the provenance of my bunny purse, I discovered Mandy Coon was inspired by the 1950s movie, Some Came Running (based on James Jones' novel), in which Shirley MacLaine carries a darling bunny bag.
BUNNY @ PLAY: This fashion story includes Peggy Guggenheim-inspired sunglasses by Prada, glorious with curlicues... Sandro's Francophile chic, effortless in a navy boiled wool coat or leopard collar frock... Orla Kiely's For Esmé daisy-strewn dress, named after JD Salinger's short story, For Esmé - With Love & Squalor.

Coats of arms guard against the cold: 1) Little Red Riding Hood with a Peter Pan collar & bubble hem & 2) Collarless rabbit fur, so cozily sleek, bunny snuggles like it's his mother. Everywhere we go, my chained bunny bag (the sweetest S&M rabbit) garners admirers, whom I refer to Mandy Coon's showroom (shop HERE).
