IMG_2595I have a bit of a purse addiction.  I can’t stop buying them.  Last year I had a diaper bag addiction.  Then the kids got a little bit older so I became obsessed with backpacks.  Now it’s back to regular bags.  But I’m finding that I gravitate towards nylon or vegan leather.  This must be because they are so much more kid friendly.  I don’t have to worry so much about stains with the vegan leather.

So I stumbled upon 88 Handbags and fell in love.  By love I mean I fell in love with the  styles, colors, and prices.  There is such a huge selection with so many styles to pick from.    I just had to put this in my Valentines Gift Guide!  What woman wouldn’t want a purse for Valentines Day?taupe-handbag-satchel-color_block_grande-300x297

The purse I chose is the Carol Taupe Color Block Satchel. This imported bag is so easy on the eyes, it forced me to go to my closet and find clothes to accommodate it.  Usually it’s the other way around but not with this beauty.  It’s all about the bag.  This bag is stunning.  It’s classy, stylish, sophisticated and fashionable for any age.  The hardware details make it even more appealing, giving it a luxurious aura about it. It is made with the highest quality, environmentally-friendly vegan leathers.  It has a double metal zip entry and an exterior metal zip pocket and includes a shoulder strap, if needed.  I personally like to do the “look at me and my purse model stance with it hanging from the inside of my arm”, as to display it.  But I must admit, there are times a shoulder strap is useful.  This bag is to die for and I would say with complete confidence that all there purses and fantastic quality just from getting this one bag.

I love everything that 88 Handbags stands for.  They are a vegan brand and therefore, don’t use animal products.  They care about the environment by using custom versus cheap hardware and it shows with the quality.  88 donates a percentage of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world.  I love their logo and the meaning behind the number 88 which is symbolic of their brand.  It says on their website:

The number 88 is the number of constellations in the sky.

Shuttle mission 88 started construction of the international space station finished in 1988.

88 is considered the luckiest number in Chinese culture as it sounds like word for wealth.

In ham radio 88 is the sign off that means love and kisses..

The snake swallowing its own tail is an ancient Egyptian symbol for the self sustaining, self contained universe.

88 represents the cycle of creation and recreation.

There is something for everyone at 88 Handbags.  But don’t be afraid to step out of the box either.  I did! Most of my bags are black.
