Yes I did take pics!
Here is the bag I sent. She said she liked 1930s style bags, so I used my handy, A Century of Bags to look up cool designs. So this is what I came up with:
And the back:
And here is the original Elsa Schiaparelli I based it on:
And now to the purse she sent me. She researched me on the site and found out that I like to study Lady Jane Grey. Just a little history refresher to those who don't know; Lady Jane was queen of England for 9 days in 1553. Really obscure historical figure but I love to get my hands on anything to do with her. You may have notice my screen name...
Anyways she made me this incredible cilyndrical bag out of this sparkly black fabric, and the best part? It's covered in different pictures of Lady Jane!!
I love it so much! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
And now on to some pictures.....
