Michael Kors Fur Pom Pom Bag Charm

I'm probably super behind, but I feel like bag charms are getting more and more popular these days. I've seen scarves, tassels and various other types of accessories added to bags.
Originally, I bought this Michael Kors Fur Pom Pom to be used as a keychain on my key ring. I had it that way for several days, but then I realized that even though it's light, it was still slightly oversized for my key ring and I was always shoving it in my bag when I didn't need my keys. I felt like it was almost a waste because I think it's so cute, but no one ever got to see it. After a couple of days, it dawned on me that it would be a perfect bag charm!
If you've seen my outfit posts, I know you've seen this bag. It's definitely my most-used bag because it's black, has two different ways I can carry it and is a great size for every day. I popped my fur pom pom on it and alas, a match was made! The bag and the charm do both happen to be Michael Kors so the chains on my bag perfectly match the charm which is really nice. Since this photo, I did put the pom pom on the other side of the lock with the leather key-holder that came on the bag (after looking at it, it looked weird and I guess...messy to me to have things hanging from both sides.)
The actual pom pom is jet black all over and very full. The fur is super soft and I love how on the ends the strands kind of taper of, so it's not a blunt cut. Overall, I think it's a whimsical little piece and it kind of reminds me of the lucky rabbits feet you would win from arcades game gift shops as a kid, except a nicer and more grown up version.
I've had a couple of Michael Kors keychains before so I know this one is going to tarnish, which is a bummer.  However, I'm hoping that since it's not something I really touch a lot since I moved it from my key ring, that it will not happen for a long time.
I really love this little key chain, but I will say that when I bought it, I didn't realize that it was real fur. It does say it on one of the tags when you buy it, but I was so excited to see that the store had it after spotting it online that I didn't even read anything until days later. Needless to say, I am disappointed about that, but on the other hand, I do have a couple of bags and pairs of boots that are real leather so I'm not adamant about not having products like this, but I guess it does make me a little sad to think about.
Other than that oversight, I think it's super cute bag charm and I've been loving having it as a fun new accessory to spice up a bag I've had for years.

    1. I never had either, but when I saw it I couldn't resist!

  2. This is so cute! I don't really go for charms on handbags, although in high school I had a silk scarf wrapped round the handle of my bag and I thought I was the most stylish person ever, haha! Xx
