At the change of each season (and several times throughout each season) I like to go on a quest for the perfect bag. I know I have chatted on this little blog of mine before about Blair Ritchey and her gorgeous handmade handbags. She makes each of her items and you can definitely tell her attention to detail when you see them.
I have had the cobalt blue Mini Lulu for a while now and have used it a good bit. I keep it in my purse all the time to hold little incidentals like lipstick, then sometimes, like below, I use it as a clutch. One of my favorite looks with it is here…
So, when I saw that she came out with a Going to Market Tote I knew I had to have it for the spring/summer! Its made from a sturdy cotton canvas and is accented with royal blue piping. The detail in the rope handles just adds to the list of reasons I had to have it!
And I figured, while I was browsing, I might as well purchase a wallet in fuchsia…why not?
Her packaging is top notch. It really is. From the shipping label with her logo to the sticker holding the tissue paper together, to the hand written note she includes, its just so cute. Aren’t packages way more fun to open when they are cutely done?
I wasted absolutely no time taking it out of the box to use it…it hasn’t left my side yet!
Doesn’t the fuchsia wallet compliment the tote perfectly?

The rope handles…the rope handles!! Just love them!
If you are in the market for a new bag for the season you have got to check out Blair’s collection. With her handmade quality and attention to detail you will be hooked, and it will be so worth it!
Now on last week’s What She Wear’s linkup! Thank you to those who linked up with us for your date night look! I loved all of the entries, but I have to say, my absolute favorite look, my “winner” was…..
Becky from Cella Jane
Where do I begin with this look? From her statement necklace to her shoes, I would wear every last piece. I love the look of pairing edgy heels with boyfriend jeans. And a statement necklace? You can’t go wrong with that, can you? Becky is definitely a stylish fashionista who has impeccable style, which is obvious in her date night look above! Can’t wait to see what else she puts together! Not to mention…she is absolutely gorgeous!
So lets talk about next month’s theme! Drum roll please…………..
So head to your closet and grab your favorite maxi skirt or dress, style it up and link up the first Tuesday in June with Dawnelle, Courtney, Kaleigh, Meagan and myself! Don’t worry…we will remind the crap out of you so you don’t forget!
