The Hookup: a girl's perfect accessory or cougar gear?



The other day I was out at happy hour when my eye caught something shiny. There, hanging from the beer-slicked bar, was a silver bedazzled hook with some woman's oversized Louis Vuitton purse hanging from it.

My first thought: "How handy!"

The second: "Coug alert!"

Something about bringing your own silver hook to hang your handbag while you get sloshed strikes me as a little pounce-y. Mama's gotta get her drink on, but she's not about to muck up her jewel-studded satchel in the process.

So imagine my surprise when I see that the New York Times style section not only wrote about these midlife-ready bar latches, but actually seemed to endorse the things. One in particular.

Feast your eyes, ladies, on The Hookup.












Oh my GAWDDDD, isn't it adorable??

But wait, it gets better. When you're not using the Hookup to stash your bag while you buy another Bud Light for the 22-year-old frat boy across the room, you can fold it into a DARLING little heart!












Sooo perfect for Valentine's Day, as the NYT tells us. So grab your apple-tini, slap on some red lipstick and let the Hookup hang while you do yo THANG, girlfriend!

What do you think, divas, am I totally off base here? Are you ordering one for yourself as we speak?
