As a mom living in NYC I have to make sure that I always have my essentials (wallet, keys, laptop, etc) as well as the items by kids need (diapers, snacks, crafts) to be accessible. I need something that is spacious, without being too bulky and something that is fashionable without being too showy. Well, I discovered such a bag from Michelle Vale,an accessories brand which appeals to women who embrace individuality and appreciate versatile, sophisticated and distinct design.
Founded in 2006, Michelle Vale is the very first brand to create handbags with custom removable hardware offering woman the unique ability to change to color of hardware and carrying options. Made in New York City, I have been loving her collection of Totes with some favorites being the Metallic Linen with Pink, the Moss with Platinum and the Orange with Metallic Taupethat are made with lamb and/or calfskin and include a cell phone pocket, blackberry pocket on one side, and an ipad pocket as well as an interior that can fit books, a laptop and essentials for the kids. In addition to being functional, the colors are also vibrant and right-on trend like the emerald Hammerstein clutch which is a great pop of color that is gorgeous for Spring.
Recently, celebrity mom Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted in NYC wearing the Michelle Vale night linen Balancé tote with neon pink handles. Also, extremely passionate about being locally made, Michelle Vale co-founded the "Make it in Manhattan" business initiative which includes documentary, networking events and her popular blog. www.makeitinmanhattan.tumblr.
