Did you get something for you mom for Mother’s Day? My mother had been looking for a simple, medium-sized crossbody bag for the longest time, so I just got her one, albeit a little bigger than what she wanted. She also wanted the bag to come with an external pocket at the back, but I couldn’t find one with that in time, sorry mom.
And then I chanced upon this good-looking Palette cross-body bag by Angela & Roi. How did this manage to escape my radar? This vegan leather handbag is actually perfect, size-wise and feature-wise (it has a little pocket at the back). I love the Palette Wine cross-body!
This bag comes in many pretty colors. Each color represents support for different cause, e.g. blue for colon cancer, so when customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.
Angela & Roi Palette cross-body bag, $65, color + cause supported: Red (HIV/AIDS), Green (Anxiety/Depression), Light Brown (Cancer), Purple (Alzheimers), Black (Melanoma), Wine (AIDS/HIV), Orange (Kidney Disease), Blue (Colon Cancer).
They also have other types of bags, also in quality vegan leather, such as this square tote bag. The Square Plum Tote, $148, is another one that caught my attention.
Angela & Roi vegan leather square tote handbag, $148. Mandarin Orange (kidney disease), Navy (Colon Cancer), Wine (HIV AIDS), Plum (Alzheimers), Gray (diabetes), Dark Green ( Anxiety & Depression).
Aren’t these pretty pastel macaron trinket boxes by Two’s Company the loveliest thing since, er real macarons? These ceramic limoge boxes come in a set of 12, in 6 colors Rose, Light Pink, Peach, Light Lavender, Light Yellow, and Pistachio. They look good enough to eat and are a great way to store earrings or other small knick knacks. Perfect for Mother’s Day or even as wedding favors?
More macaron-shaped goodies… set of bath fizzers and scented soaps.
Help! It’s been a few months now and I still can’t get my mind off these pretty pastel clutch bags from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear collection. I especially love the ombre ones!
