Fashion Flashback: Plastic Charms Then and Now

Betseyville's "Cirque de la Betsey" tote is a fabulous blast from the past. Its decorative chain with multi-color charms looks just like the charm necklaces I used to collect as a child (that's them in the top photo - aren't they amazing?!). Quintessential '80s style all the way. If you're feeling nostalgic like me, or want to give this trend a try for the very first time, get the purse for $85.00 at

I LOVE betsey! and those charms are fly!

Betsey rocks, I hope I can be half as fab as her when I'm her age. Her purses aren't exactly budget but you can find them cheap at places like Nordstrom Rack and even TJ Maxx.

i think you can pretty much make your own version and end up paying a lot less. plus, you then have a one-of-a-kind, right?
