I know, after the recent Nemo Snowstorm in Eastern Canada it's hard to picture blossoming flowers, flip flops and cocktails on the patio.
But it's fast approaching and it's time to start transitioning our wardrobes to prepare for the impending colourful season.
I was excited to be introduced to a fabulous Canadian brand of handbags and fashion accessories, Nella Bella.
Nella Bella utilizes state of the art vegan fabrics to create beautiful, trend setting, high quality collections that accentuate an individual sense of style -- perfect for the sophisticated and the casual.
Tarek Al-Azbat, the Creative Director and Head Designer of Nella Bella left not one in the dust when visualizing the brand and it's product line.
“I saw the demand for a line of handbags that are fashionable as well as functional in today’s market, and that’s how Nella Bella was born,” says Tarek. “Nella Bella is for those that are chic and demand the best.”
I received a first glimpse of their new Spring 2013 collection before it hit the shelves.
Loved how I received it -- great packaging! It was like opening a gift. I really appreciate the little touches.
How absolutely beautiful is it? I instantly fell in love. Although I usually stick to the plain one-colour bags and not usually one to purchase a bold bag, I already knew this was going to be a favourite in my bag collection for the Spring/Summer. How could it not? Look at it!
I love how spacious it is!
As a mother with two under 4 including an infant, there is a massive amount of stuff I need to carry around with me often. What are simple trips to the mall or heading to a family party, traveling light is pretty much non-existent.
They say this bag is perfect for the "grab-and-go woman". They hit it on the nose!
Features of this bag:
- one outside zippered pocket
- side web trimming
- secure zippered top
- comfortable tubed handles
- dust bag included
The Gardenia Tote retails for $89.00 CDN.
