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 love mysteries you will love this SmartGirl Purse. It is made from a slightly used copy of “The Complete Sherlock Holms" by Arthur Conan Doyle. This book was so beautiful; it was just begging to become art. But book lovers do not worry. The book’s interior pages are still intact so it can continue to be read and enjoyed.

The handles are hand beaded with brown, tan wood and acrylic beads on a gold tone metal frame to coordinate with the fabric. The fabric matches, not only the color but adds to the theme. The purse closes with gold tone button and grosgrain ribbon. The cover is also embellished with metal and Swarvoski Crystals.

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 9.25" long, 6" tall and 2" wide.

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 first a book so it requires special care. You would not let your favorite book get wet. Great care is always taken in the construction of all SmartGirl Purses. They take approximately 8 hours to make. Only the finest materials are used. Most of the books are used so there might be some variations and some slight blemishes on the covers.

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!
