Lately I've been obsessed with fun-colored envelope-style evening bags. But when I went on the hunt for a new functional and fashionable everyday cross-body bag, I was surprised to see so many neutral tones (grey, beige, nudes and putty)...warm, simple and natural.
Not usually my cup of tea and bags in these colors I usually leave behind at the store but I did love the versatility that this one bag would have. A handbag in one of these summer tones would pretty much match EVERYTHING in my closet so, I was "all in" the second I came to the realization.
Here's the bag I ended up going with one saturday afternoon while exploring the cute shops in the area of Los Angeles called Silver Lake:
It's from the vegan line Urban Expressions. I absolutely love this new bag and the best part? No animals were harmed when making it. Eco AND animal friendly fashion at it's best!
Note of caution: Be careful when you rock a light-colored bag with dark colored jeans! The denim color can stain the bag if it's constantly rubbing as you walk around.
Now, if there's one bag that I would spend an evening washing loads of dishes for, it's the one and only, Chanel quilted classic flap bag in black:
Every time I land a new hosting gig I reward myself with a gift so perhaps this will be my prize when I land my next J-O-B! ...but maybe I'll get the beige one instead : )
