Over the Holidays, I feel in love with a new company - well, new to me anyway. I introduced you all to 88 Handbags, back in December, when I showed off their amazing Jenny Black Hobo Bag. I love this company, and what it does.
Each handbag is created from Vegan Leathers, with a focus on what is best for the environment. Being a mother, focus on leaving a good environment for my kids, is a big deal. So, to find a company that is creating gorgeous handbags, with that goal in mind, how could I not fall in love?!
In addition to their environmental friendliness, 88 donates a % of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world.
"We believe that educating women is the key to a better world."
With women educated even to a primary school level child mortality rates come down, families become wealthier, diseases are more under control and each of these women has more of a choice over her fate and future. She can read about the world and not be dependent on a man to tell her what is and is not true..
Well, the wonderful people over at 88, knew how much I loved the handbag they sent me back in December, and wanted to give you - my wonderful readers- the chance to fall in love with 88 Handbags as well. So, in the spirit of Valentine's Day, I want to introduce the absolutely gorgeous, Katie Red Medium Saffiano Stachel.
This beautiful red handbag, comes with both a small handle, and a long strap, so you can wear it on your shoulder, or as a cross body bag.
Here's what 88 has to say about this bag:
"The Katie is an unequivocally chic example what you'll need to navigate the town come rain or shine. She provides a modern sensibility with a go-getters attitude and surprises all who encounter her simple elegance in sumptuous saffiano. Our signature 88 brand handbag is a perfectly sized and durable addition to your already stylish and sophisticated look. A slender optional strap lets you masterfully switch from a handheld to an over-the-shoulder carry, and with two interior zip and smartphone pockets, your ever-demanding life just became effortless. Katie is exceptional!"
I can't tell you how impressed I am with this bag - beauty aside, there is so much space in this bag. Two sides, with a large zippered section in the middle, and a zippered pocket, within one of the sections. The strap can be adjusted using the gold toned buttons, and the gold toned 88 symbol, hangs as a charm on the front of the bag.
This handbag is perfect for everyday use, and is sure to get you tons of compliments! I can't wait to take it out on our family casual Valentine's Day outing!
