We can't decide if they're amazing or awful, but we're pretty sure they're genius—James Piatt's handcrafted bags, created in the images of Paris Hilton's chihuahua Tinkerbell, a machine gun, brass knuckles, and screaming abandoned babies are our accessory obsessions of the day. Available online from his website and also at Bonnie & Clyde's in Chicago and Delicious Boutique in Philadelphia, the handbags are priced from about $85 to just under the $1,000-mark. A small price to pay for some badass urban sartorial warfare, really.
