Hello Style Strutters! It's been a while since my last blog post. School has been crazy! Transitioning from my undergrad studying journalism to pursuing my master's in business administration is no joke. My statistics class may just be the hardest and most stress-inducing thing I've ever undertaken, and that's after taking the GMAT and accounting! With the semester near a close, I have some exciting new content planned ahead for summer. In May, I'm going to Big Guava Fest here in Tampa where I'm FINALLY going to see my favorite band ever: The Strokes! So be prepared for some festival-ready looks!
While browsing Nasty Gal, I came across this Nasty Gal x Nila Anthony "Gone Mad" faux fur backpack and instantly thought of Fendi's Monster collection, making this the perfect Stitch for Less this week.
Fendi monsters are just about everywhere. From $850 furry bag charms to Peek-a-Boo satchels, totes, and slip-ons, the Fendi Monster is a beloved fashion industry companion, equal parts luxe and playful. The Fendi Monster backpack featured below is just that. Made from pebble-grain calf leather and featuring monster eyes made from Caiman crocodile and fur crest made from dyed fox and natural goat, this backpack is not the Jansport you carried back in high school. To wear this furry friend, you'll need to put down $5,000. Ouch.
Not to fear! If you need a monster companion like this to accompany you on your summer music festival run, Nasty Gal has the perfect affordable alternative. This Nasty Gal x Nila Anthony "Gone Mad" faux fur backpack is only $68 but still gives you the same look as the Fendi original. What I love about this alternative is its bucket-like shape, double-zipper pulls, and iridescent eyes. For the playful fashionista who doesn't take style too seriously, this is the perfect bag for weekend outings with friends and is sure to turn heads.
That's all for today. Be sure to check us out on Instagram @stitchandstrut and on Facebook!
