I'm on the hunt for a new handbag (black, not vegan-friendly) to replace my current shoulder-crippling maroon number (made from up-cycled leather pants by Hurwundeki). Can anyone help? Here are the favourites...
Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Sasha Shoulder Bag
What sort of stupid name is that for a bag? And why does it have those darn birds on it? I read somewhere that they are "a nod to tattoo culture". Despite the birds, I was all ready to buy this bag off shopbop (they do free international postage and the Aussie dollar was strong) but by the time I got around to it, they were sold out. No longer available, unlike the girl with the birds tattooed on her back. If you're in Perth you can pick it up at Wasteland for $850 or so.
Deadly Ponies Mr Flopalopagus
Mr Quack but he does reek of practicality and style. I would totally be rocking this bag by NZ's Deadly Ponies if fellow glogger D didn't already own it. DP stockists in Oz include The Grand Social, Emporia (in Perth), Alphaville and Somebuddy Loves You (in Melbourne).
ILEMI PARIS 2 ways Leather Bag
I saw this on etsy and it was love. Can I defend spending this much on a bag and shipping it halfway around the world? Alternatively, I could send myself to Paris and buy it in person. Ilemi, my heart is yours.
Anyone know a local leather smith who can make me a bag? Preferably out of some old pants or upholstery or something?
