nikes on my feet keep my cypher complete

I was going to wear heels today, but it is just too darn hot for discomfort of any kind. Me and the bestie did quite a bit of walking today so I think I made the right decision. Anyway, in this blogger world of Litas and loafers, I will always stand by my Nikes.
So you might be wondering where the heck I found a bag made from postage stamps? The answer is, of course, that I made it! Basically all you need to make the material is some sturdy fabric, a lottt of stamps (my mother collects exotic stamps, how handy!), and big vat of hodge podge. Fold it up to make a bag shape, add a strap, finish with some black piping, and voila! Mailman chic. My favourite part about the bag has got to the be chain strap. It's just regular old chain, bought by the metre from a hardware store. It seems quite ordinary, but it has such a pleasing industrial quality that you can't find... well, anywhere except the hardware store I guess.
