Have You Seen This?

I love this bag.  It's really simple - I love this bag!  The colors are so warm and smart and the styling is sophisticated.  I like a bag that is longer than it is deep (easier to find things, less digging in the depths) and the structure of the round, wool covered handles contrast the loose slouchiness of the bag in a really cool way.  Sometime I look at it and I see a Ralph Laurenesque American west kind of style and sometimes I see sturdy Pendleton Adirondack style.  I can't think of any color coat that this bag wouldn't compliment.  It's so versatile that it would look great on a date in the city or adorable with jeans and a sweater on a stroll across the Beacon bridge.

This beautiful bag comes from Virtuosity in Carmel, NY and is made by Jackie Andrews.  Jackie is a long time member of the Hudson Valley Etsy Team and has 2 other Etsy shops.  She makes hand stamped, inspirational jewelry for Charms of Faith and clay ornaments and cake toppers for Virtuosity Clay.

This luxurious hand knitted bag is a fine example of Jackie's artistry.
