meet the Alexander McQueen Elvie

 
I am proud to announce that this beautiful silver paisley Alexander McQueen Elvie bag is now happily sitting with me chez la maison de hobovogue! :) If you follow me on instagram you'll know I actually received it prior to the holidays, but felt like posting some old photos up just to share with you all. The bag is extremely roomie but is structured (hard case), something I'm not so used to just yet but am warming up to. It's just so naturally elegant and catches the light in all of the folds and pockets of the leather and I have Ebay to thank (again) for this amazing find. To be completely honest, I've been searching years for the Legend bag in glossy red from the fall 2008 collection, but have not yet found it :[ (see below).

 
 

 
The fuzzy sweater (do you see the fuzz patches?) is from my local thrift store (typical), as ar ethese thigh high boots! The boots are actually a size 8.5 so I may be putting them up for sale on Ebay soon... once I figure out how to launch that, I'll you all know. Get excited!
