Handmade in Iran

To think of the hours that went into hand-making this work of art- what were they thinking when making this tapestry?  who’s the mastermind behind  this exceptional piece?  what other line ups do they have?  This is a hand-me down from a very wonderful lady close to my heart -Parvin S.  She had purchased this tapestry handbag from her homeland in Iran and didn’t think twice about giving it to me when she noticed I couldn’t keep my eyes off of it.  I’ve been proudly using this bag as a weekender, run away bag, overnighter, in a hurry carry all tote travel bag.  I had to play MacGyver by using a safety pin to make use of the broken zipper.  Other than that, it’s a durable bag with tight stitchings around the leather with dual handles and aged hardware. It will surely outlast me.

Sequins- Yes No Maybe

To this day, I still have mixed feelings about sequins.  All that shines and glitters is alluring but I don’t find them practical and having longevity.  The eyes go immediately to the missing spot – yes, you have one sequin missing, right there.  How do you wear and not damage?  How do you make sure you come home with every 436,898 pieces?  Are you going to sit or stand in that sequin dress?  Oh, excuse me!  Here, I think this sequin piece belongs to you.  Ugh, what beautiful disaster!

Now, there are exceptions  to exceptions.  I do admire and appreciate the work that went on behind the scenes so that we may shine with style.  Talk about details, right?  So in my case, I carry it instead of wearing it.

This is a glamorous sequin evening purse that I’ve proudly carried for many years with all of its original pieces in place.  Ok, I admit that I haven’t used it often but but but….and never mind its compartment size.  Do keep in mind, it’s an evening bag.  This sequin purse is flirty, fun, always looking fresh and it’s a Yes for me!

Sentiment For Sale

I was cleaning out the dreaded clutter in my closet and there I rediscovered a deeply buried sentimental treasure.  My dear mother.  There she was dusty, still intact, strong, classy, weathered to style. I wouldn’t dare say ancient but vintage, nonetheless. The sight of her made my heart flutter, rewind rewind, stop, play it right there…ahh, there she is getting ready to toss it out into a yard sale, a barrel handbag satchel, that no longer suited her.  This bag held the world for her and was magical.  There inside the barrel handbag was a grocery store, pharmacy, kitchen with a refrigerator, extra clothes, umbrella, make-up, lotion, clowns, toys, you know….a mommy’s world.  Not my style of bag, but its rare shape, brown leather, a side “breathing” hole, and the tarnished turn-lock attracted me.  Plus, I couldn’t possibly part ways since my brother and I grew up around that bag.  She gladly handed it into my possession and in return witnessed that her barrel days did not go unnoticed.

Has anyone put up a sentiment for sale?  What’s your story?

By the way, my mom still carries a “mommy bag” for us….

I’ll take one in every color

It was love at first sight.  Yes, love at first sight does exist cause it happened to me!  One glance at Torri Satchel Handbag and I knew I had to have it.  It stood apart from all others…poised, confident, and ever so elegant.  Just classy I tell ‘ya and my kind of bag that I’d love to take home to show mama.  When we met, it was like a slow scene out of a movie, the crowd around us slowly drifted away leaving between us one way, airport walking escalator.

Without a blink, we were together as destined to be.  Torri Satchel Handbag took my breath away.  The quilted design material is so soft with mix of suede, not to mention framing itself in these flirty, silvery, round studs.  The weight and the sound of the dual, chain straps is enough to make you feel luxurious.  It’s all about you and the handbag….so blinded by love.

This handbag is everything I could ask for…the size and the top zip closure for extra security underneath its turn lock closure, flap. This handbag reminds me to unclutter  my world, to keep my days lighter, and that I am reflection of its beauty.

So do you know what I mean when I say, “I’ll take this handbag in every color” ?  Has anyone ever bought an item then some in all available colors?  Sadly, it comes only in grey…sigh sigh

Oh Torri Satchel Handbag, thank you so much for showing me love and coming into my life.  I dedicate this blog to a very special friend.
