I was so intrigued when LA Caldwell from Minnie + Gorge asked me to be a part of her look book where each featured product from her Spring collection would be modeled by a different fashion blogger. When I finally checked out her website and products, I was no longer intrigued but enthusiastic! Yes her pieces are gorgeous but what I love most is the quality and the simplicity of the timeless pieces she stitches. I can’t even stitch a simple hole in my jeans so I am always in awe when someone can make a high quality leather good from scratch.
I obviously said yes and couldn’t wait to get in on this look book project and felt so lucky to be a part of the 10 chosen ones, so to speak. The look book project is a 10 day event, which began yesterday, April 27th, culminating in the finished digital look book on Friday, May 8th. I encourage everyone to go on her blog to find the schedule and follow each blogger to see Minnie + Gorge Spring Collection unfold. I know I will be counting down the days in excitement to see the final look book. It’s like 12 days of Christmas for artisan bag lovers.. 10 Days of Minnie + Gorge.

LA sent to Brit + CO:
3-in-1 drawstring bag
On the second day of Minnie + George
LA sent to me:
Calf Hair Envelope Clutch
I absolutely love this hand-cut/hand-stiched envelope design combine with calf hair to give this simple clutch a luxe look. It’s perfect for a few essentials when you’re looking to travel lightly, whatever the occasion – clutch it in the evening, or swing it from the strap during the day.
Would you rock this calf hair clutch? What are some of your favorite artisan pieces?
