Little black dresses don’t leave a lot of room for things like keys, credit cards, and cell phones, and dragging a purse around a party or nightclub can be a pain.

“From our own personal experience, we know that women hate taking purses to dances, bars, or dance clubs,” founders Mariah Gentry and Kyle Bartlow write on JoeyBra.com. “Leaving these items at home can pose a safety risk, but with JoeyBra women will never have to worry losing or damaging their valuables again.”

Looking for a handbag that’s quirky and cool? Check out the fun bags below (not those kind of fun bags). Though the colorful bags look like they came straight out of a cartoon, they’re 100% real and fully functional. Jump From Paper is the company behind the unique products.

“JumpFromPaper is a playful and innovative line of handbags,” reads the company’s website. “Are they real? Yes they're real. Although slim in appearance, each JumpFromPaper bag has a roomy interior to accommodate an iPad/tablet, book, magazines, and your everyday accessories.”

What do you think of the bags? I love them and am thinking of ordering one of the larger sizes to use as a hipster diaper bag. More photos below.

Fashion Star debuted on NBC last night, and reviews of the show are a bit mixed. Some, like Entertainment Weekly’s April Daley, like the “thrill of the shopping/runway combo” and advise viewers to tune into the new fashion reality show.
