Oh Nelly, you are simply fantabulous! LOVE the dress (I'm certain I had one just like the day). What an adorable style. I SO wish you lived close to me so I could have & sell your purses in my place at Folsom! They are simply smashing! You do such a great job on them. The man bag is great - you captured the "look" & the masculinity. GREAT job!

Love your 60s frock, Nelly, and the sunnies. You have got a real production line going with your record bags - I really like the linings you're putting in. Very clever design for the manly record man-bag! xxxx

Ohhh! I love the Madmen look! You've captured it just so, all you need now is a martini and cigarette at your work desk! Your record bags have to be one of the most brilliant designs I've ever seen, so pop, so hip! Market those till the cows come home, sistah, they are the tops!
