I’ve gone from being amused by this kitschy Maison Martin Margiela bag to craving it.
The style of my bad-ass blonde friend from 1983 must be influencing me, because you know she would have loved this bag. She probably would have hung a feathered roach clip from it.
Unfortunately, a wolf bag is not something I am inclined to spend $1,195 on, but if one of you wants to buy it for me, don’t hold back! (But only buy me this gift after you buy this.)
Meanwhile, here’s a vintage wolf sweater to check out on eBay.
And don’t forget my Isabella Wolf-Fang necklaces and earrings! The silver wolf necklace is very suitable for men as well as women. Two of my gorgeous male clients wear that piece. Email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com if you’d like to purchase anything.

Oh great. Now I’ve got a Meat Loaf song stuck in my head. You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth starts with an annoying, breathy conversation: “On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?” Ugh! I need some Duran Duran to cleanse my brain.
UPDATED TO ADD: There’s no wolf, but you can get a delightfully tacky, airbrushed horse t-shirt at Dorothy Perkins for 14 pounds.

I’m also reminded of the “Flight of the Conchords” guys. They’ve made those animal motifs cool again.
Me too^^. Brett wears that kind of top/sweatshirt/sweater in every episode.
That bag is JUST the kind of thing old blondie up there would put a roach clip on.
Step Right Up says
Just curious, which one are you in that photo from your younger years? I’m guessing maybe the one with the Jordache jeans and perm?
Replace that wolf on the bag with a scowling weasel and I think they’d see an increase in sales.
That bag is so ridiculously chic.

that would make you officially the leader of our pack
Love the earrings and necklace.
My German lecturer was named Wolfgang! Such a lovely name!!

Love that MMM bag.
And your comments are so hystercial Wendy – thanks!
Love the new profile pic, darling!
Mmm..I love anything with animals on it. I would love the bag more if it had a Bengal tiger on it..my fav animal!
The Isabella Wolf-Fang Necklace is wonderful!
Princess Poochie says
I think I had a wolf t-shirt just like that… back in the day.
Your Isabella necklace has howled its way into my heart. 🙂

My 1/2 brother was crazy about wolves. When he died his girlfriend gave me a really tacky acrylic wolf blanket to remember him by. I feel guilty every time I recoil at its unattractiveness.
Your necklace would be a much better reminder of him. However, as much as I would love to buy the wolf–I am saving my pennies for a custom Wendy weasel necklace. 🙂

Hi there-I’m sure henry would be very intrigued if you brought the Margiela bag home! Love the Dotty P top!
miss cavendish says
Definitely 1983. But would it have longevity beyond, say, next month?
Prunella Jones says
I had a tee shirt very much in the style of the wolf bag back in the eighties. It had a tiger on it. I think I bought it at Deb to go with my black stirrup pants. Grrrrr.
The blond chick looks like my cousin Becky. She had a right sass mouth on her. I bet that’s you in the Rush hat and black and white dolphin shorts.
Hi! I dunno if you remember me but I used to have the blog Chez Beaute. My new site is Femme Rationale. If you don’t mind, I’ve already linked you on my new site since you were linked before on my old one. Please stop by and say hi when you have a chance. 🙂
Anyway, I love that wolf necklace. And I agree w/deja pseu – my first thought was flight of the conchords when i saw the wolf sweatshirt.
Ooooh, I love wolf paraphenalia! I have a wolf t-shirt and if I could afford it, I would totally buy your wolf fang necklace.
Make Do and Mend says
Enc’s roach clip comment cracked me up I almost started the like the bag but although I think the shape is fab I don’t like the wolf print whereas your wolves are beautiful.
Good choice: Duran Duran over Meatloaf ANY day.

This post has me howling with pleasure. I love that wolf-fang necklace. It’s a needful thing. Grrr.
Looks like I’m not the only one who has the Flight of Conchords wolf sweatshirt jones going. I used to see those all the time at Value Village and think, who’d wear that?
Answer – me but now it’s too damn late!!!
That 80’s picture is TOTALLY AWESOME DUDE.
the iron chic says
Thanks for putting Meatloaf in my brain again!
Aghhhhh. It took me a month to get that “I would do anything for love” business out of my head.
I love that wolf bag, and Wolfie is an incredibly cute name – fabulousness all Round
I’m ashamed to say I’m the only person who hasn’t watched Flight of the Conchords.
fashion herald says
Her name is Rio and she’s dancing by the sand. and I’m sure when she’s done she’s picking up that bag and having a drink with the boys. Want it.
That wolf purse is a something else. And you’re so right–I’ll bet the blonde would eat it up.

Who knew when I spent $7 on this tee (http://www.imelda.com.au/well_shod_well_imformed/2008/05/hot-trannie-mes.html) 2 years ago, I’d be soooo far ahead of the curve. The best part is I bought from a $2 (I believe you call ’em Dime Stores) shop.
Bobble Bee says
THOSE are some bad-ass girls, the rest is a joke!

You’re gonna love the wolf tshirt I got you!!!
