Got the Dior Trotter Romantique Small Boston in Beige yesterday from Woodbury and I was not immediately wowed by it I hadn't seen it IRL and I love everything else about the bag, including the dainty, feminine touch of the velvet... but I absolutely detest the flower! So I took Ceremony's advice and cut the petals down since she showed pics and hers came out great. But when I tried to do it - I made a total mess out of it! So now it looks terrible because the cheap tulle (that the petals are made of) are fraying and the green and yellow stuff's sticking out. So... I was thinking of the following: 1. Removing the flower altogether and gluing or sewing the velvet bow securely onto the canvas to cover the remaining hole (since the flower's bolted on). 2. Removing the flower and replacing the hole with a nice but small brooch - the kind with one pin that has the squeeze-type backing. Or maybe use a Dior pendant, earring or chain? 3. Leave the flower on and deal with it - including questions of... Nice bag but what the %^&* is that pink thing??? What do you guys think???
