Lulu Guinness and a girl who loves her designs

I have always been a fan of Lulu Guinness. I was lucky enough to to meet her and spend some time with her on a fun trip I took not too long ago. I liked her even more once I met her. She is friendly and lovely and charming. She looks like a doll. She and my husband talked for 20 minutes about his camera. My husband loves anyone who is willing to talk electronics with him.

When I like someone, I buy their stuff. I am Irish--her last name is Guinness, I think there is an unwritten loyalty there. I have a lot of Lulu Guinness stuff. I told her I would showcase them on my blog. It has taken me a long time to do this, but finally I have had the time to post her lovely wares properly.
This is my Lulu White Scotty dog purse. I love this purse as I am partial to White Scotties (AKA WESTIES aka Finley)This is my Lulu Guinness Gene Tierny bag. When I first saw this bag, I thought it was Audrey Hepburn, but it is not. It is the beautiful British actress Gene Tierny.

This is my funky Lulu bag. I like it because it reminds me of the 70's. I dig the cool design.

Because I love and am inspired by The Bag Snob , and I consider myself to be somewhat of a bag snob myself, I thought I would model some of my Lulu Guinness scarves on some of my favorite handbags.
This is my Lulu White Scotty Dog scarf on the Hermes Birkin Bag.

This is a polka dot Lulu scarf on the Fendi Spy Bag.

This is the lavendar heart lock and key Lulu scarf on the Badgley Mischka Front Pocket Hobo bag.
I also have lots of Lulu perfume and umbrellas. I seem to be drawn to them. I enjoy the girlie, whimsical feel of her things. I love her stuff, and I just wanted her to know.
On another note I would like to send kudos and congrats to Ina at Aromascope and my friend Bridget from Odalisque (website coming soon HOORAY) for both being mentioned in the Chicago Tribune this Sunday! It was a lovely article on perfume, the love of certain perfumes and the crazy things we are willing to do to find our favorite scents.
Have a lovely day!
