I LOVE this coin purse. I'm a huge ladybug fan, but I try not to be obnoxious about it. I love how chic the purse is and how well the ladybug blends with the pattern. It also holds my cash, debit card, ID, etc. I did not mind waiting for it to travel across the Atlantic Ocean! Thank you so much!

It all started inside my grandma Sina's three-door cherry wood wardrobe many years ago. I might have been 5 or 6, when I used to hide for hours in that mysterious and lavender scented den. It was packed with irresistible treasures: Sina's precious bags, totes, pouches and purses, all there for me to be discovered.
I can still recall the secret pleasure of caressing the fabrics, admiring their colors and textures, exploring their perfect features opening them time and again just to hear them click. Yes, it all began in that magical closet many years ago.

This is why this little place of mine is called “Retrospettive”.

When I sit at my sewing machine, it is as if I was hiding again in Sina's magical place, trying to mix memories and shapes of my childhood with today's colors and motives crafting my bags with the hope to recreate that magic past and turn this passion of mine into a life project.
