rebecca said...

,,,very cool idea dig the look,,,i own the same chic clutch and jazz my bag up with vintage scarfs, ribbons and charms at the zipper,,,i'm a bit timid about anything permanent on the bag but "duck" tape (because it comes in many designs and various colors these days) would be a fun addition and when i tire of the look i can change it,,,

BeLighter said...

Gorgeous! But I could never pull it out! I'm too clumsy for DYI...
Love your blog! You're such an inspiration!

i LOVE B's sight, she's so creative. your take on the AA clutch screams USA!!

I'm working on making my own right now, but i'm going to substitute paint with metal. think about Alexander McQueen.

i know you love color and jewelry. i've been eyeing your David Yurman bracelet FOR A LONG TIME--i'd appreciate you checking out my Etsy shop! I'm so proud of my pieces and the uniqueness they bring to every outfit. I have a feeling you'll love them.
