in my arms she was always Lolita












I'm completely smitten with the book clutches from Olympia Le-Tan which everyone has been going justifiably crazy for since Natalie Portman carried one to the premier of Black Swan. Each piece is handmade and numbered, and these gorgeous creations retail for around $1500. Safe to say it shall remain but a dream of mine to own one, which if given the choice would def be Nabokov's Lolita in case anyone was curious. I really like Dracula's eyebrows too though.

I used to make clutches very similar to this when I was younger, but with actual books with their pages cut out! Maybe I should get back into them, clearly there's quite a market!
