My Bottega Veneta Cabat

Thank you everybody very much for all the wonderful messages about our little baby boy. Today baby Feather is one week old!

The dresses, skirts, knits were all beautifully constructed and so delicate. Just look at that fringed dress.

A few years later, I got the chance to pick up the bag in great condition, at a much more manageable price, from a sweet lady who was selling off some of her collection to buy some even more fabulous bags. So voila! Continue Reading
