I received the purse as a gift,
for no apparent reason or occasion
( actually I believe it was one of those gifts that just keep on giving,
passed from one to another until it is finally appreciated by its owner )
It had been tucked away into the corner of a crammed shelf
in my cluttered studio far too long.
It was basic and black & I loved the shape and size
there was an elegant and classic quality about it's styling.
See through could be considered sexy
yet it needed a little embellishment to dress it up
so it could finally go out in public and be appreciated.
( okay, it may just be for a costume )
Either way there was something about it that reads Holly Golightly to me...
Remember the 1961 film adaption of the novella by Truman Capote starring Audrey Hepburn ?
