Are you a SmartGirl? Why not express it? Do you love books? Why not show it?

A SmartGirl knows how to dress Smart and she knows intelligence is always in style.

If you loved Biology when you were in school, you will love this SmartGirl Purse. It is made from a discarded text book titled “Modern Biology”. The fun artwork on the cover was just begging to become art. Book lovers do not worry. The book interior pages will still be intact so it can read and enjoyed. It has many beautiful illustrations and don’t forget the fun transparencies we loved as kids.

The fabric is a green, brown and yellow graphic print that sets off the mode cover. The purse closes with button.

The book stores on a bookcase and looks like any other book on your shelf. But you will not want to store this beautiful accessory…you will want to wear it.

There is a very narrow pocket inside perfect for credit card or driver’s license.

The dimensions are approximately 9.5"long, 2" wide, 6.5" tall, and the handles are 6" wide by 5.5" tall.

SmartGirl Purses' spines are widened and reinforced so the bottoms of the SmartGirl Purses are roomy and strong. So throw in more than just a lipstick and a cell phone. A SmartGirl knows one does not have to sacrifice function for style.

Remember the SmartGirl Purse was a book first so it does require some care. Great care has been taken in the construction of all SmartGirl Purses. Only the finest materials are used. Because most of the books are used, there might be some variations and some slight blemishes on the covers. I only select books that will make lovely SmartGirl Purses so imperfections are limited.

Most SmartGirl Purses are made to order so please allow for 2-3 weeks to ship. There can be some variations from the pictures due to availability of the materials used.

I do love making custom one of a kind SmartGirl Purses. Please contact me if you are interested.

BONUS: When ever possible, I like to add the actual book, covered with matching fabric so it can be enjoyed at no extra cost. It's my gift to you.

Hope you love it!
