I guess it’s truly really official: Avril Lavigne is dating Brody Jenner. For a while, I didn’t want to believe that one. The two are like oil and water – Avril, a punk rocker girl, and Brody, a model and socialite, worlds apart.

The connection between the two is more profound than it first appeared. They’ve taken their affection to a new level, each getting tattoos of the other’s name.

Based on inside sources, Avril had Brody’s name tattooed on her ribs, while Brody had her name under his ear and on his forearm. Sigh… I guess that’s love.

The new couple attended Lindsay Lohan’s belated birthday party at Las Palmas nightclub, and I couldn’t help but notice the studded and quilted bag Avril was toting.

It looks interesting. The combination is quite interesting – quilting, studs, and tassels.
By pure luck (and I honestly thank the lucky stars today for helping me with this discovery), I found the same bag while digging through Zappos’ inventory for a look-alike.

And like any other Betsey Johnson purse, this one also comes with a funky patterned lining:

If you think about it, this bag fits Avril’s personality to a T. It’s a little girly with a lot of punk and rock ‘n’ roll. If you like the bag, it’s your lucky day because it is currently on sale for $206, almost 50% off its original retail price of $402.
While the black version has sold out, this bag from the same designer is a great alternative:

You can also go for the smaller satchel bag in ivory if you wish:
