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.

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.

I made the mistake of clicking the “Recommended Products” link…. and now I need the cashmere knit cardigan, double angora and wool shell coat and an English lace trench coat, in pale lavender please.

I unexpectedly spent nearly an hour going through the links at the very fun and colourful Hermès website yesterday. The website is filled with illustration by children book illustrator Alice Charbin.

It really does feel like reading a children’s book, except this one is telling a story with expensive scarfs, bags and other accessories.

If the idea is to get the customer to stay long enough to find something they like, then they succeeded because I left the website with a yearning for an Hermès Offrandes d’un Jour silk twill scarf.
