Who doesn't love a little festive arm candy?

Dylan’s Candy Bar on N.Y.C.’s Upper East Side has been a mecca for sugar-loving locals and visitors since it opened in 2001. Now, dessert enthusiasts can get their fix downtown thanks to the new Dylan’s Candy Bar outpost in Union Square. Joining us in our excitement is designer Judith Leiber, who chose the location to debut a collection of sweets-inspired handbags earlier this week.

The Sweet & Sparkly Holiday event featured the Swarovski-crystal encrusted purses sitting pretty amongst edible rainbow confections, and benefited Dylan’s Candy BarN, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting animal organizations in need. One particular clutch, designed to look like the shop’s popular birthday cake (pictured above), was auctioned off to lucky partygoers to support the fur-friendly cause. How's that for a sweet icing on the cake?
