Mae Whitman is just one of those people who's simply awesome. You know what I mean? Just everything she does is cool — I mean, have you seen her take on Eff, Marry, Kill with the cast of Friday Night Lights? How about that time she IG'd a snap of herself with Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham? She's just kind of epic — and, as fate would have it, that intrinsic sense of awesomeness also happens to carry over into her personal style. She pretty much always looks fab (personally, I'm still not over her Rachel Antonoff "boob" suit), and the latest addition to her wardrobe might just be best of all: Her Parenthood sibling/roommate/BFF Miles Heizer gifted Whitman a plushie purse for her birthday... and it's very covetable.
First off, it's a pink bunny. That alone makes it nearly unimpeachable as a fashion accessory. Add that to the fact that it's got sparkly green eyes, and an equally sparkly crystal strap, and you've got yourself some sartorial gold — it got me like a moth to the flame, and as soon as I saw it I immediately began scouring the Internet, because seriously, look at the thing:
Alas, my search came up empty-handed, so I'm guessing either Heizer made the accessory himself, or he got it custom-made somewhere. That said, I still managed to dig up some purses with a similarly playful vibe! So if you've always yearned to use a plush toy (or something plush toy-adjacent) for a carry-all, read on!
