Hello again bag hags! Yes it has been a long time since I last wrote on the blog. May I first start off with a greeting, because I never got the chance to do it? HAPPY 2018 everyone 🙂
Now let me get right down to bag business! Ever since Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, she like Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has an ability to sell out whatever she is seen carrying or wearing.
On her first public outing, I was so pleased to see her carry a Strathberry bag– a Scottish label began by a really lovely couple I got to personally know 2 years ago, Guy and Leanne.
I had featured the label’s bags on my Instagram 2 years ago because I loved the unique design so much. Plus for the price, the bag is so well- made.
Quality is superb! Today, I am so pleased to know that they’re doing incredibly well, thanks to the boost by Meghan. Imagine the bag was sold out in 11 minutes!!!
Todat, Meghan was out again with Prince Harry on another public engagement since last Christmas (where she carried a Chloe bag). The soon-to-be married couple are in Cardiff, Wales. Meghan carried a forest green top handle bag (called Mini Venice) by a small British leather goods brand named DeMellier,
founded by designer Mireia Llusia- Lindh shortly after she gave birth to her first daughter.
Like the Chloe Pixie bag she carried during the Christmas holiday with the Royal family,
I am not so keen on the style of this DeMellier bag. I actually initially thought it was another Chloe bag (haha shame on me).
But I do like that Meghan is more adventurous with her bag choices– sorry but I have to compare her to Kate on this. I am also pleased that Meghan championed a lesser known brand. I fully approve of her endeavor to promote lesser commercial leather goods, and hope to see her put the spotlight on many other bag brands that are more affordable (than so many ridiculously overpriced premium designer branded bags) and deserve to shine.
