Thinking of moving to Portugal ~ all caused by sardines.

dievca spotted a crossbody bag on sale from a fun French Brand,  Jamin Puech.  she thought it was depicting sardines and was thrown into dreams and memories of Portugal.  she wants to buy the bag for a friend who is a foodie and enjoyed with sardines with dievca.  It’s still a bit dear at €207.00 on sale when she is not sure if her friend will wear sequins.  

Click here if you are interested in the bag – there are 4 colorways:

By the way, the bag is called SPRAT.  Which is a different fish than Sardines:

Sprats are recognized for their nutritional value, as they contain high levels of polyunsaturated fats, considered beneficial to the human diet. They are eaten in many places around the world. Sprats are sometimes passed off as other fish; products sold as having been prepared from anchovies (since the 19th century) and others sold as sardines sometimes are prepared from sprats, as the authentic ones once were less accessible. They are known for their smooth flavour and are easy to mistake for baby sardines. Wiki

ANSWERS:

2.)  dievca can start wearing these boots with:

3.)  Gianvito Rossi’s version of combat boots has been made in Italy from butter-smooth leather and rests on a rubber lug sole. They hit just below the knee – elasticated ribbed panels make them easier to fit muscular calves.

4.)  The boots are straining her budget, but dievca found her size on the one website with 30% off. She would share the site with you, but the boots have sold out.
