Fashion Friday: Orla Kiely.

I just love Orla Kiely. I bought my first Orla Kiely handbag at Harrod's in London in February, 2001. I adored it then, and I still smile fondly every time I look at it. I also love the clothing inspiration I find in the photographs of the past few seasons' Orla Kiely collections you can find on her website. Here's a peek at a few of my favorite shots.

Funny that you posted this today. I was at Target last night and saw a perfect knock-off of the car prints on Orla Kiely's luggage. I actually sent a pic to the PR people, though since the grid is missing I'm sure there's nothing they can do. Ugh.
Here, I posted the photo here (second one):

I am glad you wrote about Orla. I think she is fantastic. I too own several Orla bags and for a while I felt like they were too loud but now they are back in full rotation. I love her patterns!

Happy Weekend!
