I have always loved the Neely character in Valley of the Dolls (VOTD). And I love everything about the movie, which I find to be just simpler and more innocent than the book. I love the casting, the catfights, the affairs, the big hair, the Dionne Warwick theme song, all of it. I especially love the fake makeup ads that the character of Anne gets to be in. So 60's, so glamorous!
Now that I have laid eyes upon the Neely bag, I simply must have it! It is the perfect example of Neely's character, trying to be grown up and classy, but working a bright red patent or cheetah print into the mix.
