Noni 148 The Bettie Boop

Includes Bags in 3 Sizes and 2 Flowers
Inspired by the beloved, alluringly feminine icon of the 1930's, this bag is both flirty and straightforward, delicate yet ever so comfortable. Just as the original Miss B. practically purred with the romantic gleam of the jazz age and the revolutionary confidence of the Flappers, The Bettie Boop will give you the irresistible urge to flaunt your feminine side while still staying perfectly put together. Elegant underpinnings create the ideal silhouette to show off sculpted blooms and the sparkle of crystals and beads.
