Sehr schön

Le col est super!

Claudia 24.06.2009 - 15:46:

Ist eine sehr gute Idee. Oft wandert der Schal gerne auf einer Seite zu Boden (je nach Material und Muster). Das passiert hier nicht.

JoAnne 17.06.2009 - 02:09:

I just love this!!! It's beautiful and practical. I could fit them both into my pocket. I'm always losing my scraves and hats.

Helen 12.06.2009 - 00:14:
