My obsession with Orla Kiely

Some of you may remember my fascination with this bag when I saw it in a magazine in 2010. I sent out the alert and you were very quick to let me know it was an Orla Kiely bag. Upon more investigation though I realized it was way out of my price range.

Robelyn over at Red neck chic was kind enough to use her little swatch of Orla fabric to make me my own red neck bag which I proudly carried last Fall.

This bag is still a favorite of mine

While visiting Hunt and Gather last week I spied these fabulous Oilcloth bags and pouches. I got the whole set and thought I had finally conquered my Orla Kiely obsession.I was feeling quite good and then... while meeting my uncle at a favorite restaurant of his, I Spied it...

The Fake I've been waiting for. I could not grab it fast enough and the price was reasonable (for a handbag that is). So out came the plastic and this beauty is now mine.
I just love it and I still love my oil cloth bags and pouches as well, You can say my world is colored Orla now, and I'm a happy girl.

Please excuse the Hotel upholstery.
You can find the oilcloth bags at Hunt & Gather in Minneapolis or online at
