Remember the instagram and tweet about my bejeweled Miu Miu cristal bag Mr. S surprised me with for Christmas?

Well, I made a video for y’all!

Ways to Wear It: Miu Miu Nappa Cristal Bag from styleofsam on Vimeo.

It was gorgeously displayed in the window at Miu Miu.  And like a moth to a flame, I was drawn to it.  The sweetest sales associate, Janice, offered to take it out so I could look at it with my hands. She showed me all the ways you can wear it, and YOU KNOW I’m a pushover for anything with multiple uses!  Even Mr. S was impressed!  He surprised me the next day.  It was unexpected because we don’t exchange Christmas presents anymore.  *sigh* I love you Mr. S!
Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year!  And hope you enjoyed the video – it was my first time to create a video in PhotoShop!
