I don’t know about you, but my purses tend to fall in one shade range – and that includes blacks and greys. It wasn’t until this Summer that I decided to venture out from my norm and ‘spice’ up my purse collection a bit. I started with this beautiful salmon colored bag from Elizabeth Laine.
This is my first time trying one of Elizabeth Laine Handbags and honestly, they are a sure way to spoil yourself. Every bag is handmade using rich, high quality leathers and fabrics, with extra touches of gold or silver-tone hardware. Her handbags fit every style – from classic everyday crossbodies to edgy studded shoulder bags. Elizabeth Laine Handbags can be found in boutiques throughout Los Angeles, as well as on her online store.
“Every handbag makes a statement and is made for the different aspects in a woman’s life. Each piece brings the perfect mix of sophistication, function and style to women of all ages.” – Elizabeth Laine
The Poppy 2way Belt Bag & Shoulder Bag shown above has easily become my go-to purse for the Summer. The salmon color is absolutely gorgeous and eye-catching, and works surprisingly well with different colored outfits (especially khakis, purples, burgundies, and reds). I love wearing it with a simple tee and jean shorts on more casual days, as well as paired with a Summer dress for a night out.
This bag isn’t all looks – it’s extremely practical too – one thing I can really appreciate when it comes to storing literally all the items I need to survive! It features a strong magnetic closure that allows for easy opening/closing, plus it keeps all my stuff safe and secure. (I have a weird habit of keeping my zippered handbags unzippered for easy access, which usually translates to me spilling their contents every now and then on the ground, so this really comes in handy!) Add in the amazing quality leather, the beautiful workmanship and touches of hardware, and you’ve got one cute, sophisticated bag to carry around as you go about your Summer adventures!
And now for the fun part! Elizabeth was kind enough to offer a giveaway for the Poppy 2way Belt Bag & Shoulder Bag to one lucky reader! Winner will get to choose their color (black, salmon, and blue are available). The giveaway is open to US only and will end on July 18th at 11:59 EST. Winner will be notified via email. Good luck! 🙂
