valhalla brooklyn bags…

etsy is a daily thing for me. it’s like going boutique shopping at your favorites spots, (well just in your pjs) except there is new stuff everyday. vintage, new, crafts, its all there. i admire designers who take on the challenge of making handbags. it’s not an easy thing, since hardware & cutting leather is it’s own animal! so, when i found the valhalla brooklyn line, my eyes were instantly pleased. the design of these bags are so functional & the leathers are so unique in terms of texture, that i had to write about them. i especially have a soft spot for the 5 pocket okinawa. it’s totally me…




Monica is…handbag obsessed #2.

It’s nearing fall & already I see drool-worthy leathery specimens! I love bags that are classic, but have a little edge & these have the right amount of punk sass, I can’t get enough of. The days of summer still linger on

Monica is…filled with teddy bear dreams.

I frequent the MOMA store quite often & was thrilled to find out they are now selling Argentinian designer, Valeria Pesqueira’s teddy bear leather handbag. Anyone who is close to my heart, knows my undying love for handbags & this one is on my reeeeally long want list. I think I’m going through this “whimsy” stage because everything I’m charmed with looks so child-like. I think i’m reverting. Being a grownup sucks sometimes, but lucky for me Valeria’s line is filled with bubblegum pop art & Japanese aesthetic, sure to send me to candyland!

just some of her amazing bags!
