Practical (in a preposterous kind of way)



Now, several things occur to me about this key ring: It is artful yet brazenly simplistic. It will not be confused with anyone else's key ring. It is the only key ring I have ever noted could be taken apart and worn as couture or, used to save the life of someone hanging from a ledge. It is $300, so it is unlikely one would lose it for fear of having to replace it. And if you really must have your keys taken away, at least let your last conscious gesture be vivdly colorful, wildly dramatic, and an unforgivably vain flourish of silk and Prada.

love this-all the scarf and post,why not? it seems an investment, also could be considered to cause bodily harm to others if provoked and used properly.

Practically ingenious. It would make a wonderful teething ring to occupy babies whilst mothers chat about haute couture, haute cuisine and the haute bourgeoisie. Our toys always seem to be what they gravitate towards, n'est pas?

I love this! And you could change the scarves to go with each outfit!

New finds never cease to amaze me, and I adore scarves!

I've never been confused with a practical person, but I'd worry about coffee stains when setting it down to pay @ Dean & Deluca...
