The story behind this handbag is, my parents were at a Casino, and as they walked by the Cartier store, my mother pointed out this purse in the display window. She said “oh, that is a beautiful purse to my father.” Later my father , “never knowing what to buy my mom” won very big at the casino. He secretly made his way back to the Cartier store and purchased the purse for my mother. He saved it for her birthday which was months later When she finally opened this gift up, my mother laughed and said, honey it was the purse next to this one. So long story short…… She never ended up wearing this one. Her loss your gain. A sweet attempt by my father. True story…..LOL Enjoy!
