No, I don’t have a violin or a flute or a recorder and a coin case in my bag. (A certain someone claimed that I look like a troubled musician…) I do have a cello in there, you just don’t know it because I haven’t whipped it out yet to show off my übercool cello scrubbing skills.

  7. You look so good, I love that combination of navy and red. How did you stud your boots? Do you have a tool that makes it easier to get the studs through leather? In the spring I wanted to stud my combat boots but when I realized how thick the leather is I gave up. I think I would have broke my fingers in the process!

    Ohhh it’s easy peasy! You just have to use a sharp scalpel (or craft knife) to make small slits for the prongs to go through! I did break my fingers folding the prongs, but putting them through was easy :P

    i gotta agree with Trish that your bag’s super nice and that the bag doesn’t have to be branded. ironically, i own some and feel very unimaginative when i tote a branded bag around. what’s that sash-like thing in and out of your bag? do you play the cello, really? cos i played it in school :)

    I can play air-cello pretty well, in fact I’m in an air-symphony…noOoo I can’t play cello :P That thing in and out of my bag is a fail scarf that I tied around the handles ;)
