While on my trip this week, I picked up a few beautiful pieces of fabric for summer totes so getting back to the Waterstone studio today was at the top of my list. I was able to complete and photograph this first tote today. I’m in love with this fabric and knew immediately which recycled leather I would use.

The recycled leather handles, font pocket and flower came from a great, weathered Coach bag I’d gotten my hands on recently. The inside green cotton lining seems to complement it pretty well.
I don’t know about you but I absolutely love having a handbag with both black and brown. Maybe it was because I was brought up to think that accessories need to match, but I seem to have some sort of psychological hang up in that department. We’re working to correct that. At any rate, I love the tan and black fabric with the brown leather.
Today’s question…
Do you think about mixing black and brown or gold and silver when putting your daily outfits together?
Or am I the only one who was possibly irreversibly brainwashed in teenage finishing school?
until tomorrow,
