“I don’t recommend a cross-body or sling bag, which will overwhelm your shape.” This is good advice, as the leading cause of death for women under 5’4″ is suffocation by purse. More
Now that the Santa Ana winds have blown through Los Angeles, a cold front is setting in, and my mind is on quilts. Cozy, warm quilts. So let’s take a look at some quilted bags, shall we? Maybe if we buy all six of them we can fashion a blanket. More
