I’ve been discovering a lot of great local designers lately. It’s either this new generation of entrepreneurs is really super talented, or I’m a late bloomer as far as style and trends are concerned, and it’s only now that I’m starting to take notice. It all began with one Erzullie dress. If you’ll notice, I’ve mentioned them in my first and second Fashion Friday posts so far. That’s how much I love the outfit I bought from them at the Global Pinoy Bazaar last month.
Anyway, going back…
Finding a new, local, fabulous plus size designer is absolutely wonderful. Finding a new, local, fabulous bag designer is even sweeter. I just love bags! Here’s an added perk – she lives in my house. Yup, my baby sister has finally started on the road to realizing her lifelong dream of becoming a bag designer. Her first customer? Ever supportive ate (big sister), of course! And perfect timing too, the Longchamp bag I got myself last Christmas is all ratty and tattered already. Yes, I tend to abuse my bags.
So right when I decided it was time to get a new bag, a pretty one waltzed its way into our house! It’s the perfect size too! My laptop sleeve fits snugly in it with room for all of my other stuff.
