    "I'm totally jealous of that purse. I collect vintage purses, especially mesh ones. I saw one similar to that one, but silver and with crystals in the cap portion, at an antique store for close to $300. I wanted it so badly but just couldn't afford it. "

    "As you can see by my nom de plume metal-mesh is the correct term by which you refer to the 100% metal interlocked chain that creates the magical "fabric" which is really classified as jewelry even when it is joined to form the most extravagant gowns.Whiting & Davis refer to it as metal-mesh,as well as Anthony Ferrara who designed all of the clothing line for them.I have an amazing collection of over 300 metal-mesh dresses,blouses,skirts,halters,and handbags.Part of my collection was filmed on the Antiques Roadshow this year,and might be featured on the Kansas City episodes"

    "Please forgive my tardiness in reading such a glittering review of Whiting & Davis mesh accoutrements. It affords me unfeigned pleasure that you and Lilliput have given your keen approval to my humble gift. The mesh gated reticule was a token to commemorate your rare sojourn to New York's fabled borough of Brooklyn. Also rare is that the reticule was originally from the esteemed New York department store Best & Co. which is, alas no longer purveys fine goods. Now, how shall we Knickerbockers go about having you visit Manhattan in the not too far future?"

    "My dear MsMetal Mesh,
    I would be thrilled to see your vast mesh collection in a photograph book! Do look into this prospect. I will be the first to purchase a copy."
