    That’s amazing, great bags and they don’t have bad side effects to the environment!

    Sandy Tote with Front Pocket Tassel is my favourite bag in saddle.

    Shallow vs Profound

  6. V says:

    These bags are incredible, especially for being so affordable. I think my favorite is the Lori Zipper Hobo With Metallic Mesh Pockets. If I don’t win it, I’ll probably buy it for myself for Christmas.

    Hello Natalie! I’ve been peeking your blog for a few months, although I haven’t commented any of your posts… I think your lifestyle is lovely, you seem to enjoy everyday in a different manner. The way you combine the lastest trends with vintage acessories is the inspiration I was looking for. If, for some reason, you decide to come to Portugal I would love to show you around.

    P.S.- this one is the perfect bag:

    Oof Natalieeee! Melie bianco has such a great items!! It`s so hard to pick just one… anyway I loved the Lorraine Belted Satchel With Metal Accents (B1350) the most.
    I`m already following you and Melie Bianco on FB and twitter.
    Big hug! ♥

    (B1112) Angela Large Lock And Key Bag. IN BERRY

    I would definitely want this bag over all the others because of its practical design. I believe a bag should fit the aesthetics of the individual first and second should hold an outfit together. I am an admirer of RICH colors. This bag is bold, structured, yet elegant, because of the reddish/brown tone, feminine lock/key accent and very functional for every day battles. It looks the best in this berry color because it softens the rectangular business/briefcase/masculine shape. Also, this color is a perfect addition to your wardrobe. This color is a fresh take on the “black bag”. Everyone thinks black goes with everything (and yeah totally usually does), well, this berry/brownish tone goes well and even BETTER with everything. Instead of the harsh contrast you would get from the black version, (maybe you would want that). This color kind of helps put the puzzle pieces together in a much softer, sexier way. I love earth tones, olives, browns, burgundy/wine colors. The first outfit I would wear this bag with would be a light fabric white button down, my new checked cardigan with elbow patches from zara, dark green skinnies /or black skinnies from jcrew, striped socks from jcrew and dark stained purple/wine oxfords from cole haan. To top it off, black wool beret from american apparel. I’d be ready to go out for the day, go to school, or to work!
    I’d use this bag : heavy duty.
    Right now, my go to bag is an orange bucket bag from Roots. Its great! but this color would be amazing for the NY winter weather. I need a big briefcase/messenger bag. I love the mens look. Maybe even add a floral tie from madewell.
    ps. I added both of you guys on twitter…
    but I deleted my facebook a longgg time ago.

    So sorry for the really long post. I hope you agree, though! 🙂

    Very Fab and awesome giveaway Ms.Natalie. Though it’s so hard to choose from all of them coz they are all lovely, well I want to have the ‘Vivian Woven Bucket Bag’. It would really stand out, love the chain handle that adds a modern touch to it. Like native/modern bag that I want to have.


  14. Rachel says:

    AWESOME giveaway!!! Wayyyy too MANY bags to choose from. I’m really digging woven bags right now, love Angelina Woven Drawstring Bag with Studs and Blair Woven Bucket Bag with Contrast Stitching. BUT my FAVORITE would be Vivian Woven Bucket Bag with Chain Trim in Mustard >.< I TOTALLY adore the contrast chain trimmed handle that really makes the bag special.

    Having the concept of producing fashionable, environmentally friendly and AFFORDABLE bags is really GREAT 😀 I think it would really help buyers, if bag measurements were listed for every bag and if some close-up shots could be featured too!

    Love love LOVE <3 the Dream on lookbook and how you modeled the bags and all the shots! Liked and followed both 😛

    Since I’m a vegetarian with an unhealthy desire for leather bags I just had to love every single bag in her collection!!!!
    I would love love and more than love to win the Stevie Color Blocked Convertible Clutch/Cross-Body because I’ve been looking for the perfect clutch (/convertible clutch) for ages and just couldn’t find the right one or just couldn’t afford the right one… I dreamed having to choose between two gorgeous ones (a deep mustard-y and a rich, dark red, like a beautiful french red wine) yesterday, woke up without any :I haha, so i have to win this one. 🙂

    I love the (W10-75) Alyssa Expandable Shoulder Bag With Front Pockets. I have been eyeing it for a while in grey but alas I see that color is no longer available so now it’s either whiskey or peacock…you decide 🙂

  20. JordanaDec says:

    I like so many but a while back the Miley Hobo in Sepia was calling my name! Since then I’ve ventured out a bit a decided I needed a more unique bag that would add a pop of color to my outfit. That being said I love the Janet clutch in green and the Ariana. Beautiful bags!

    I’m loving the ‘(B1302) Nancy Structured Cross Body Bag with Clasp’ (Taupe)

    I’m 29 but have osteoarthritis in my left shoulder and it’s painful to bear the weight of a bag on my shoulder for any amount of time.
    I’m always so happy when I find awesome cross body bags , it just makes my day 🙂
