Browsing through magazines last week, I noticed that fur accessories have popped up in lots of editorials. Not only fur hats and fur-accented scarves, but strangely enough, purses featuring fur details. I admit, at first this seemed kind of odd, but the furry handbags have really grown on me and I’m itching to add one to my collection. ALDO is a great brand, especially for affordable accessories and I was thrilled to see some fur in the their purse section, including the Opdyke.
ALDO came out with a purse last year called the Cyphert. That totally blew up. Everyone and their dog had one. They’re banking on the success of that shape and adding a fur flap, giving you the Opdyke! PS – what’s with the totally bizarre names? Anyways, let’s move on.
The Opdyke measures 12′ L x 10′ H x 5′ D. It is made of a taupe synthetic and features a magnetic flap covered in faux fur. The inside consists of a three compartments, one of which has a zipper. There is also a back zipper pocket and two slip pockets on the front side. That means tonnes of storage and great organization.
There are also two carrying options: the satchel handle and crossbody strap. The strap is removable, which is nice for days when you’re channeling Betty Draper and only use the single handle. The fur accents just scream cold weather and I can only imagine how darling this will be paired with a wool coat or even a plaid shirtdress.
If you’re looking to stay on trend and add some fur to your purse wardrobe, look no further than the ALDO Opdyke! It’s even on sale for $40.50 right now at Zappos.
