Home for the Holidays and my Favorite Purse

Last month I went home to Northern California for the holidays and spent time with my whole family.  I live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in Northern California.  I talked to them about starting a fashion blog while we were having Hanukkah dinner.

My cousin, Dena Rendlich, offered to be my photographer.  She got her degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Photography.  She is an absolute joy to work with.  All of these photos (below) were shot by her.

After Hanukkah dinner, my uncle Kevin showed me a leather purse that he created.   I was surprised and impressed to find out that it was 100% hand-made leather and hand carved by him.  The hand carvings truly make it an art piece.  In fact, this purse that I am wearing is 20 years old and it is in MINT condition.  I saw it and I loved it.  I have worn his purse with many outfits.
