Opelle’s Luxury Bespoke Bags…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on September 4, 2012 at 9:20 am

As per usual, I’m always perusing my favourite site, Etsy and I came across Opelle Creative; based out of Toronto, Canada.  Opelle is the creator of a gorgeous line of handmade leather handbags, which would give the big name designers a run for their money.

I came across the Baby Opelle Botanist Bag, above {$338}, and it was an instant hit with me.  Created from genuine cowhide leather, this beauty is a must have, with its elegant half moon style, huge tasselled leather zipper, and gold tone hardware.

Items are made to order and take approximately 2 weeks to complete.  For a unique handmade handbag, that you won’t see everyone walking around with, it’s worth it!

I’m also loving the Opelle Nautilus Bag in camel ~ $298

Decisions, Decisions…

OK, fabulous people, I need your help here.  I love Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags.  Marc’s bags  will last you a life time, I think they’re pretty much indestructible.  I love the sturdy tumbled leather and the heavy metal hardware.  One thing you will notice about a Marc Jacobs bag is that they are heavy!  The bag empty has to weigh at least 2 pounds and by the time you put all your stuff in, you’re carrying around 6 pounds worth of stuff!  That’s why I’ve got such good contours on my arms, because I’m constantly working out when carrying my bag. 

Anyway, I’m always on the look out for a nice Marc Jacobs (I already own 3) and I came across the Marc by Marc Jacobs  Preppy Natasha crossbody bag.  When I saw the electric blue, I was smitten, and was all set to order when I came across the fuchsia! I’m really loving the electric blue, but I need your help to make a final decision.  So here’s the poll, which would you choose?

A Bubble Gum Pink Wednesday…

Update 4/11:  It’s seems everyone is in love with my green Longchamp bag, which has overshadowed the pink clutch.  Thanks to everyone who complimented it. Unfortunately this colour came out about 3 years ago, therefore it is no longer available.  Longchamp always creates an extra special colour each season.  The colour I love right now is the orange, which will be a lovely pop of colour for the summer.  See collection here:   http://www.longchamp.com/en/le-pliage-women-255.html

This was supposed to have been yesterday’s post, but it was a long and crazy day of wearing many hats.  There are lots of exciting things happening, I’ll fill you in when everything has been confirmed. 

I’ve added yet another vintage handbag to my ever-expanding collection. I received my lovely new vintage clutch from Adrian Company Vintage, who are located on Etsy.  Thanks Olga for the speedy shipping.   The clutch is a gorgeous bubble gum pink  and really soft.  This bag is definitely from the 70’s with its chevron stripe and wrist strap. 

Do you remember your mum going out and  carrying one of these? If you ‘re a child of the 70’s like I am, then you certainly do!  It’s going to be one of my go to bags when I’m having a Diana Ross 1970’s moment.

 Adrian Company Vintage has a lovely assortment of vintage clothing and accessories on Etsy; beautifully curated at great prices.

Have a fabulous hump day Dahhlings!
