So this is amazing – how much do you love finding one rad thing that would be perfect for your wedding day? It’s the best feeling, right? You find that pair of shoes, those earrings, that font, it just works perfectly with your vision and style. But wait – you also found the stockings, garter and garter belt to go with the shoes, the tennis bracelet that goes with the earrings and the colour for the font that makes your invites look dreamy. It all just – poof! – lines up.
So you know where I’m coming from. I had the chance to get a little sneak peak today at the Fall line up of Deux Lux handbags (don’t ask – it’s not as glamorous as it sounds). Think gorgeous creams, browns, taupes in a leather weave. Like boho meets city chic. L.o.v.e. So while I was cruising the new bags, I also caught a glimpse of this spring’s collection of handbags, totes, overnight bags and clutches. And I proceeded to have a mini internal freak out, as these bags are adorable and dare I say it – perfect for you. The bride.
Found at Calgary stores like Holt Renfrew and Urban Outfitters, these bags are sturdy. A Calgary bride’s dream. Think a little bit of shimmer with a boat load of practicality – what I love best is this is not a line that was designed with bridal in mind (maybe it was? doubt it). These bags are designed to be useable – to be thrown on desks and hallway floors, tossed into cabs and hold pens without lids. In other words – these are real bags that actually operate like a bag. So unlike your 4’’ heels, the earrings that cost you an entire pay cheque or the font that took you 36 hours straight to find, these bags will be useful way beyond your wedding day. You – are welcome!
