Wednesday's Work-Appropriate Bag: Eric Javits Squishee
Eric Javits is one of my favorite designers. He makes women's accessories -- shoes, bags, hats, etc. -- primarily from "Squishee," a man-made fiber that resembling straw. Most of the shoes aren't vegan because of the leather lining, but some of the bags are vegan, though some similarly have leather trim. My favorite of the vegan bags is the "Squishee Clip." It's bigger than it looks -- 14" long x 11.5" high x 4.5" wide with an 8" drop handle. It has brass feet and closes via three super-strong magnets. It comes in the pictured natural bronze and black and nine other color combinations. $290. Find it here.
