Cupcake Evening Bags

I'm a fan of things that are other than they seem, and that would include handbags (purses to me). Today has a series of 12 Strange Handbags. Thought you might enjoy seeing these Cupcake Evening Bags. Of course, I've chosen to display the Chocolate Cupcake. You, too, can have one for only $4295. But that's only if you can find one. They've pretty much sold out everywhere, although the Strawberry Cupcake is available for pre-order (not shown since it's not chocolate!).

Claiming to be the world’s most expensive cupcake (not edible), it's quite the accessory. Called Cupcake Evening Bag from Judith Leiber, it is covered in choco colored rocks and diamonds and can offer a room for your designer gloss and accommodate a few other things. Measurements: 3.5" wide, 3.75" tall and 3/5 " deep.

If you can't wait to find one, Judith Leiber offers a Silver plated key fob with crystal chocolate cupcake ornament for $295.

Cupcake Evening Bags were created by Judith Leiber, an artist who founded her own business in 1963 and quickly established herself as an industry leader at the cutting edge of luxurious fashion. Sold at exclusive boutiques around the world, her handbags cost several thousand dollars and have become a status symbol for many women including several Presidential First Ladies. Classic examples of her work can be found on permanent display at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK. And, of course, on Sex and the City!
