We ladies sometimes get a bad rep for carrying around purses so large you could house a small zoo in them. This may be true, but at least your handbag isn’t this big. Behold, a giant replica of an Hermès Kelly bag, which is on display at a Dublin department store. Standing at over 9-feet-tall, the monument isn’t just for sitting pretty; it’s also interactive. Shoppers can climb inside and watch short films all while the purse moves so that you feel as though your life has actually gone “Honey I Shrunk The Kids”-style and you’re being carried around. Completely weird? Yes. But at the same time, this sounds so cool! We want to test it out—it’s like Disneyland for fashion! [Ruth O’Connor]
