Right now, these Quilted Studded Bunny Bags ($65) by Nila Anthony are leading sales at Alina Alter's Rittenhouse Row boutique, Aoki. Measuring in at 7x7 inches, the faux leather bags are perfectly sized to stash Cadbury Cream Eggs, but Alter has another explanation for the bags' popularity: "The pastel color and kawaii bunny ears are super sweet, but the gold studding keeps the look from being overly cutesy," she says. " I think after this never-ending winter, my girls are ready for pieces that are undeniably spring."
The adjustable crossbody strap is removable, so you can rock this cutey as a clutch. The three purses you see pictured above are the remaining few left in stock, so hop to it! (So many rabbit puns, so little time.) Nota bene: Aoki's raffling off a $50 store credit to one lucky customer. Pop into the store any day during the month of March to enter.
