Michellie is named after my good friend (no really, she’s a super good friend, like always-remembers-to-send-a-card & randomly-buys-you-sunflowers kind of friend) named Michelle.
It is funny how, soon after I finish making/designing a HObag, that bag always becomes my favorite one and I don’t want to part with it!! Srsly, if I kept every HObag I ever made, I would be using EVERY ONE OF THEM. They are each so spunky, some more subtle, but always with a huge dose of personality. Sometimes, with all the fashion blogging and globalization (this may have also been my thesis statement for a paper I wrote in college…) it feels like everyone is dressing the same, wearing the same things from the same stores. I love how each HObag is 100% unique, and original. Even if I could mass produce them, they sure are a nice break from the standard block print, mono-tone purses that everyone seems to have. Not that I don’t love other bags, of course I do! These vintage patterns are just a nice break from those, is all I’m saying.
There are a few bags in the shop right now, and I’ll be adding a few more, so check back soon!
