I saw a woman who I am acquainted with carrying a black, nylon (I think) bag with her name in rhinestones. She's known for shopping at Neiman's for most things. She pretty much a fashion plate. Anyway, does anyone know what this bag is she is carrying? It might be nothing, but I was just curious b/c she's usually on the cutting edge.

Thanks for the help.

She might own a pair of stud pliers, which you can use for putting on rhinestones, metal studs, rivets (like in bluejeans) and certain types of snap fasteners.

It would be very easy to plan out where you wanted to put your name, word, monogram with a washable felt pen, then just pinch in the stones or studs along those lines.

True, but that's not it. Her father is a minor celeb here - a local sports writer. Her mother has several high end designer bags.

Everything she wears is pretty upscale. I don't see her bedazzling her purse. I'm sure it's something. The name is done in two rows of rhinestones. That would be really hard to line up. I need to just call Neiman's and ask about it since I know she shops there quite a bit.

I'm just so nosey I want to know what it is.

Thanks for your ideas though!

Or you could just ask her about it. Most chic people find it quite a compliment when somebody asks them about a cool item they're wearing. And if she did make the purse herself, she'll be over the moon that somebody noticed it!

Have you posted any larger pictures in the lookbook section? The ones in your signature are a bit hard to see... They do seem very professionally done though.

Also, if I'm ever feeling ambitious I'd like to try making one of these newpaper bags. They don't look too difficult...
