    Lovely, and actually, I think the little flowers could easily pass for starfish, thus, really a great addition.

    I love this little beauty. I wouldn’t change it. We all have the generation design gap between our children. I certainly would not wear the things my daughter wears. She is a very very young 45; and I’m a rather me, 63 in September. I see my mother’s tastes in my daughters taste. So funny.

    Thanks ladies
    I also thought that those flowers look like starfish when I saw them at the shop!
    My daughter usually likes my designs, and now she started to wear some of them, but we have different tastes she is more like my sister and my niece is more like me, it is funny!
