My Wish List!!!! A Girl's Right to Dream...

I'm craving Gucci today!!!! At the top of my list... The Tapestry Hobo bag from the Hysteria Collection!!!! The bag is gorgeous and so artistically done! In addition to the ethnic inspired, tapestry design, the bag also comes in 6 other styles including Python!!! Wowsers!!!! At $1295, the bag is a small fortune and it will probably forever remain on my "Wish List", but take note...Tapestry is definitely going to be hot for Fall '08!!!!!

Be inspired!
