For about a year or so I have been drooling over Orla Kiely handbags. I went crazy for the line of home accessories she did for Target and was just waiting for moment when I could justify spending a large chunk of change on a handbag. Last week, that time came and after a LONG, HARD, and TIRING week of work at the January Gift Show, I thought I deserved a treat. :)

I absolutely love my new bag!! My boyfriend can attest to how excited I was to find the bag at Star Provisions after my last day of work at the mart. My feet were aching from wearing heels, I was tired and grumpy, but it all went away when I saw the whole wall full of Orla Kiely handbags and wallets. *sigh* It makes me happy to think about it again...

Orla Kiely is known for her graphic patterns and the thing I love most about this bag is that it's her signature stem print, but each leaf is "scribbled". It tones down the big stem print and softens the whole look of the bag.

Check back soon for another posts about handbags. J Fox and I are putting together a small handbag guide to aid a lovely reader. :)

Good Night,

  1. That's so exciting!! Especially after a long, tiring day at the Mart. I'm a big fan of Orla's prints as well, and to get one of the best on a bag? Amazing. I hope I get to see it in person soon. -Berry~

  2. Just come by Helio. It'll be there. :)
