to be honest, it was a bit of a let-down to see the ferragamo in person. it just seemed, well, smaller somehow...and definitely not worth plunking down $1,650 USD of my hard-earned cashola.
still, the details are pretty amazing...the wicker top is beautifully constructed. and the inside is lined with this very cool yellow-green taffeta. the curliecues are much tighter than the ones i made for my bag. and i was very surprised to see how soft the yarn was. i always imagined that it was sort of jute-like. in reality it is very close to classic elite provence i used for my fake-o.
