The thin line...

Someone needs to supervise Isabella Fiore and take the sketch pad away from her before she turns "Just Right"



into "Just Too Damn Much!"



The first three are just sublime loveliness, while the bottom three are cornea-scorching disasters. How do these bags all come from the same woman?

    With the middle "floral" bag on the bottom, the certain outfit might compliment it quite well. Maybe. MAYBE.

    The others, there is no excuse for.

    I actually held the one in the middle on the top (black with gold studs) this weekend --and it's already 'way too much' in real life... Not real crazy about her bags anyway --the pug one was cool because I had a pug, but she'd never be my first choice...(or second, or third...)

    I've actually adored the bottom left one since I first saw it. I know it's wrong...but there's just something about it that I love. I always was a showy little madam!

    Gemma- I actually like the smaller version of the bottom left bag, but somehow on the larger size, it's just too much for me.

    But, well, as ala points out, different strokes...

    Ok, first of all I LOVE the top far right. GOSH! That's awesome. But I must admit I also really like the bottom far right also. It's got a very "hippie" feel to it and I have always been a sucker for anything remotely hippie. If I had been an adult at the time I totally would have gone to Woodstock....

    I am still a fan of the top middle...I am a fairly conservative dresser, so I need a bag that packs a punch! This one definitely has some kick to it.

    Also, I got my Hogan Weekend bag in the chocolate brown and it is wonderful! Now I need a Hogan Scout in the lemon color. If only I could be so lucky...

    Man, I'm going to have to disagree on this one...I am developing an addiction to Isabella Fiore's bags, and while she does go overboard (the airbrushed pictures, for example) most of the busier looking bags don't translate to pictures well. The crocheted hobo is fabulous in person. I'll give you the turq one, but I think that's a color problem.

    I have come to realize that Isabella Fiore is not a person.
