Bonjour tout le monde!

That’s what my French teacher said back when I was in 8th grade and she would start the class.

This morning though I made a new video:

But aren’t these new purses just wonderful? I always have my eye out for the unique and hard to find pieces that just get treasured in our wardrobes and I think these new purses for the spring and summer are just perfect.
