WAISTE x BAIA

Dress: StyleStalker
Coat: c/o Cow Vintage

Say hello to dream bag and dream coat. (More on the coat later)

A little while ago I was asked by Susy if I'd like to take part in her blogger project to design our own bag, and I jumped at the chance. I'm a massive fan of Susy's brand anyway, and as we are both women owned small businesses it was amazing to have the opportunity to support each other in this way. Four bloggers were asked to redesign the classic Baia 'mini' bag and the designs to be sold on the Baia website, and this is mine. I'm absolutely in love with it. I've never done anything like design a bag before and seeing Susy turn my dream bag into a really is incredible! 

It was so difficult to pick just one design! Of course I tried to put a little bit of my personality into the bag, but having never made one I had no idea if what I was designing would even translate at first? I looked to vintage boho bags for inspiration and then I decided on a tan leather as it would be wearable with pretty much anything. I then thought I would concentrate my design on the lid of the bag, with an aztec-style pattern,and a decorative foil and patent leather finish to compliment the tan, and to make it look interesting. I really wanted a tassle something or other on there somewhere, and so when Susy suggested to put it in the middle, I thought that was perfect to make it look a bit more bohemian. 

My design along with the other bloggers is available to buy in a limited run of 25. (Hello Christmas presents, hint hint!) And you can buy it HERE

PS. This is my DREAM COAT. I've found it! I've got another great collab coming up in December with COW Vintage that I can't wait to show you, but at the moment, I'm living in this coat!


What do you think? Do you like my design?
