So, he called Clare Vivier & actually spoke to her (at the time) telling her he was making the purchase for his girl, mua. I also recall at one point Clare calling me back letting me know that they make everything by hand & it would take a bit to get to me. I was SO excited & in love with the bag, I didn't mind!
Fast forward a few years later & I spot the leopard hair clutch in a small photo on their website! Before it was even available online I immediately called them myself & asked about it. They told me they hadn't even added it to the shop.... but if I wanted one, they would make one. I said YES!!! I'm happy to say, I was one of the first bloggers to have that leopard bag....it's now one of my fave clutches!
With all the monogram stuff out there, I LOVE that Clare is now doing some monogrammed duffle bags ,check them out here.
