A few weeks ago, I gushed about ClaireaBella – fully personalized, environmentally-friendly bags that are just SO you. I had been watching with envy as gals all over the UK toted along their fun, sparkly little numbers, and when Toxic Fox picked up the line for international customers, I almost fainted with anticipation.
(Okay, so that’s a little dramatic. However, I *may* have punched the air with glee.)
To refresh your memory, here’s what all the fuss is about:
First, they’re made from natural Jute fibres sourced from India, making each bag strong and environmentally friendly. Jute is 100% bio-degradable, recyclable and environmentally friendly. It is a natural fibre with a golden and silky shine.
Second, they are hand painted in the UK, so you’ll have to wait a while (about 2-3 weeks… SO worth the wait). Your bag will be handcrafted by a qualified team of UK artists, who will add Swarovski crystals (!!!), bows and a “hand made with love charm.” That is exactly what your ClaireaBella bag is… handmade with LOVE, exclusively for you!
All you need to do is choose the character that fits your own look and personality; your physical features (What color are your eyes and hair? What’s your favorite hair style? Is your hair long or short; curly or straight?) and lastly, include a name, nickname or phrase to truly personalize your bag.
Third, you will totally rock. Why? Because you’ve got a bangin’ personalized tote straight from the UK, girl! Forget the endless parade of designer shoppers and predictable beach totes. THIS bag will get you noticed.
And so I waited in anticipation for my personalized “Lena” Classic Jute Bag to arrive – certain that this bag would somehow be my best fashion acquisition of Summer 2012. (I wasn’t disappointed.)…
