I made this bag to match the dress that I was wearing to Monica and Oscar's wedding. A lady who was sitting at my table asked me where I found the bag to match my dress. I made it myself, I said, and so is the dress I am wearing! :-)
I made the bag the morning of the wedding, and I did not have the pink boa for the trim. I only added the pink boa later after I found it at the local Joann store. I think the boa trim makes the bag look classy. I will use more boa trims for future projects! In fact I have a piece of brown moleskin fabric that I'd like to make with brown boa trim, but I just can't seem to find brown boa. I think I'll go ahead and make the bag and add the trim later.
