Dog's Head Handbag Is One Brainy Fashion Accessory

OK, so a handbag that looks alarmingly like a disembodied dog's head is sorta out there – even for Kathy Griffin.

Felissimo, the Japanese online emporium for all things cute and stylish, doesn't care about such things. Their Shiba Inu Pouch is lifelike to be sure but it's also just about the cutest thing going. “Why Not Both?” was never more apropo.

Felissimo markets the Shiba Inu Pouch through their YOU+MORE “Fun and Special” products and accessories line. Select from three different naturalistic Shiba Inu colors: tan, white, or black.

The latter two sport smiling faces with wide open eyes, open mouths, and pink tongues while the former bears the classic obsequious expression made famous by the “Doge” internet meme.

The Shiba Inu Pouch's exterior is made from a mixture of polyester & polyurethane to ensure durability in real world usage. The lining is 100% polyester fabric with underlying steel wire reinforcement, and features two pockets for stowing personal possessions.

These pet-like pouches measure about 4.75 inches (12cm) long, about 4.5 inches (11.5cm) wide, and offer an ear-to-ear zippered opening roughly 3.5 inches (9cm) in width. Order yours direct from the Felissimo product page, priced at 2,376 yen (about $22.50) each.
