Morelle

Since we made the offer on the house, I've really been trying to be a better shopper - the only clothing or accessories that I've bought in the last month is a new pair of jeans from Forever21 for $20.

And it's starting to get to me.

So while I'll certainly have to put my dreams of Balenciaga or Chanel on hold for awhile (because a new Chanel = the cost of redoing my kitchen and dining room), I have my eye on something I think is equally as gorgeous, probably more practical, and much more unique:



These are "Truffle" bags from a lovely bag designer in Amsterdam, Katie, and can be found in her shop, Morelle. Each one is handmade from amazingly lux leather, and the colors - well, as you can see, to die for! I really want one in each color so I can have a little rainbow of her bags!

The bags are also huge (which I love), and reinforced so you can toss your laptop in if you need to!



She also makes other adorable bags, like the Morchella, and Tulip!

What's your favorite?
