The Grace of Kelly

I'm a girl who loves a big bag. I feel like I need to carry everything around with me in case of emergency (you never know when you'll need a needle and thread, right?!). But sometimes you come across something so lovely you can't help but buy it - enter, the 'Kelly' Handbag:
I'm sure you can understand why I couldn't pass her up, not to mention the fact that this beauty cost little more than the change in my purse!
This handbag is called 'Kelly' as the collection was designed specifically to mirror the class and grace of the one and only, Grace Kelly. The 'Kelly' collection is from the 1960s and I imagine the bags were perfect with a basic day dress or a slightly dressier number for early evening dinner. I fell in love with the gold tone, metal Elbief frame and the fact that the handbag was in perfect condition with zero repair needed. The icing on the cake was the undamaged crown clasp; indulgence in grander, but in a subtle way - just like Grace.

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
