Phone Home

I’m well-aware of the fact that Betsey Johnson is full of clever – and often wacky – design ideas; but even I couldn’t imagine her coming up with something as kitschy as the Betseyville Call Me Purse. The pink leopard print patent vinyl is adorable on its own; but it’s the detachable black toy phone (with faux cord), along with the dial design that adorns the front of the bag that puts it in a league of its own. This is something that I could totally see Barbie toting about on her dates with Ken, but it’s also perfect for the rest of us because: a) It’s small enough to be thought of as a clutch, making it the perfect tagalong for girls night out; b) The colors can easily be paired with just about anything in your closet; c) It’s tres unique, fashioning the perfect conversation piece. This is one purse you’ll be phoning your friends about.


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Fred Flare for the picture.

Hi!
Thanks for stopping by Hot Cake..sure the old cover girls look to 'girl next door' and it's amazing how much it's changed in the couple of years, for good and bad that is..Now we have to keep up with beauty that is hard to reach and skinny is the new black? Take care and always warm welcome back..

I have added you to my resources page, thanks for the link!

How freakin' adorable is that? Very nostalgic and also very modern due to the animal print (recalls this season's coveted Lanvin leopard print, right?).
