As much as I sometimes attempt to dress more like an adult (whatever that means), I'm still a sucker for an animal-themed piece of clothing. Usually it's horses since they call back to my blog name and function as an inside joke, but as a faux redhead I'm also quite fond of foxes. However, from Littleoddforest it was a raccoon I couldn't resist. The size of this one is quite perfect, but I'm sort of envious of the perfect raccoon backpack--if not for myself then for my niece (although she's only a year old). Perhaps if I was buying more twee things for someone else I'd be less tempted to add them to my own wardrobe...or perhaps there is no age limit on whimsy and combining form and function. Afterall, a crossbody bag such as this is completely practical.
