I’ve discovered an up and coming handbag brand that I adore, and I’ve been so excited to tell you all about it! I’ll start from the beginning. My lovely friend Tram moved to Colombia a few years ago (I actually blogged about it back in 2013!!), and when she visits London each Summer we catch up over a cocktail and dinner at our favourite spot in London, The Wolseley.
During our catch ups she fills me in on all the fabulous new brands she’s been working with in Colombia (she’s a photographer), which leads me onto how I discovered Ana Laverde handbags.
Ana Laverde is a Colombian leather goods brand, designed for happy women! Women who love to have their own style, stand out and be unique. As soon as Tram showed me some photos of the collection, I knew right then one of them had to be mine!
I’m drawn to structured bags made from good quality leather, which is exactly how Ana Leverde bags are made. As soon as I held it in my hands I knew this is the type of bag that will last a lifetime.
I chose the rose pink brief bag, which is just the perfect size to house all my bits and pieces for work. It also comes with the option of a strap, but I prefer to hold it in my hand or over my arm. The inside also has a fuchsia pink lining which I thought was a gorgeous touch.
It’s so unlike me to opt for anything other than black, but seeing as the bags are designed for women who embrace their individual style, I decided to push my boundaries slightly. Rose pink goes with practically anything and one of the hottest colours of 2017, so I’m more than happy with my decision!
Thankfully for us ladies across the pond, Ana Laverde ships worldwide. Yay!
You can check out the entire collection over on their website here. Which is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!
