Isabella, I Heart You!
Covert Photo - Fiores @ Nordstrom's
Yes, I know that I'm truly obsessed. Last night I got to the WeHo SnB early, so I walked over to The Grove from The Farmers Market. There's a Nordstrom's at the end of the block. They have a faboo handbag department. I saw the coveted Isabella Fiore handbag that I've been trying to copy. Wow! In person, it's even more gorgeous than in the fashion magazine photos! I felt like Agent 99 or Honey West in Nordstrom's, clicking secret pix of the bags. The big hobo that I like is $600. The medium-sized bag is $400 and the really small, tiny bag is $300.
It was very enlightening seeing the bag in person. Now I know that there are crocheted flowers on only ONE side of the bag. The original bag is constructed so beautifully, that I could never reproduce it. I can only try to duplicate the look, not the functionality of the bag. Sigh.
This weekend I'm going to a small neighborhood swap meet in Santa Monica with some friends to score some vintage costume jewelry. Will report next week. Have a marvelous weekend, everyone!
