As someone who spends what can only be described as a pornographic amount of money on shoes (and we’re talking the hardcore scary German import-only stuff here, no soft-focus Oh Hi Mister Plumber Can You Check My Pipes nonsense) it may surprise you that for the most part I cannot get behind a super-expensive bag.
If it’s not a vintage clutch or my beloved hollowed-out armadillo (not joking, her name is Beulahbelle) as long as the thing’s well made, stylish and constructed by people who are old enough to buy lottery tickets, I’m all over it.
Currently I’m loving this silk bag from World of Good. It’s a great shape, the red and black is fun and Beetlejuicy while the grey couldn’t be more on trend.
Best part? These ridiculously inexpensive bags are completely fair trade.
According to the website, they’re “made by disabled artisan groups in Cambodia. NCDP helps artisans with disabilities earn a sustainable living, receive social services, self-help skills and training.”
While this doesn’t mean I have folded my campaign to systematically kick all hippies in the head with my pointy pointy shoes, I’ll give the granola grazers kudos on this one.
I just hope it doesn’t smell like patchouli.
