Who knew backpacks (1st picture) could be so stylish, right? Thanks to Hanga, it’s a reality!

Mixing canvas or linen with touches of leather makes for great carrying objects featuring neutral colors that will fashion pretty much any clothing. And the bags are a texture lover’s dream!! :)

Bag. Need.

“Gray teal stripes” basic tote, by DrikaB. Purchased in December 2008.

Huge leafy tote, by TheSeaWithin. Purchased in January 2008.


I need a new handmade bag! You can see (above) the two last bags I’ve purchased. Sure, I pay more for a handmade one, but no woman can say that 2 bags in more than 2 years is a lot of purchasing! I’ve used them constantly, and I adore them still! If I’m out that door, either one of them is on that shoulder of mine!

But I think I’m in need of a more “classic” one: a little simpler in color and richer in texture (rather than a fabulous print), so it can look good with some more put together outfits as well!

Here’s the ones (below) I’ve narrowed it down to, some I’m not even sure I can afford, but I like the dream… lol!

Let me know what you think!!! :D

“Auvenier XL” bag in burlap, by IraGrantEco. $85 USD.

“Agatha” bag in leather, by A Rebyc Design. $144 USD.

“Layered pleat sling”, by YorktownRoad. $120 USD.

“Quilted clutch” in brown leather with chain strap, by HomemadeBags. $80 USD.

“Poetry” bag, by BayanHippo. $44 USD.

“Sassy” denim tote with leather, by Kinies. $59 USD.

I fell on shop named Zelaya today, what a wonderful find!! It is run by a family from El Salvador, now living in the US.

The bags are cool and unique, the tops are hot and practical. Colors are basics, which makes them so versatile too! Details are the best, love it all!!

I feel the sun coming in!! (Weird ’cause we are in the middle of a 30cm snow storm today in Montreal! lol)
