Spring = Fashion Rebirth


I love fashion.
High end and funky fun the better.

Always have been a lover of seeing the new trends, the spring and fall fashion weeks and magazines.
Now that magazines are no longer the hip fast way to view fashion, pinterest is my go to for inspiration.

Although I do live in a city that caters to high end shops and designers.  So I get to browse and drool in person. 

(CHANEL windows last year)
Every once in awhile I save my hard earned pennies and splurge.  Bags are my drug of choice.  But on this day I just could not bring myself to spend $2950.00 on my dream trend bag.
Instead I put my brain on and the stars and moons aligned, I decided to make my most loved designer bag, the Celine Berlingot (this is the original Celine bag)
It took about 30 minutes, plus $14 of my hard earned money and this is my version ( can you tell the difference?)

I am so thrilled with how it turned out.  It will be my on the town bag this week. 

This coming week is my birthday week, the big 4 - 0 
I seriously can't believe it, I think I just turned 21 yesterday.
But anyhoo it is here and I am ready.
Especially with my new bag :)

I love your Celine! My new "drug" is vintage Coach bags....the luscious leather ones. I love finding a bargain on one and re-habbing it. There's nothing new that is made as well as those old classics.
They're timeless and will last forever.
