Green = going vintage and buying from independent designers.
Laura from the fab Laura Bee Designs sent over a link to her gorgeous handmade bridal bags that incorporate vintage elements. How beautiful is this Celeste bag? This one piece satisfied all of the bride’s “somethings”! The zipper pull is a charm given to the brides’ mother by the brides’ father on their wedding day, the flower was taken from the brides’ sister’s veil, and for the something blue? A blue moire lining!
A few more of my favorite Laura Bee bags:
The fun bag in the top left was created from a 1920s silk skirt. What a great way to recycle fabric!
Laura Bee Designs is Seattle-based and I think it’s so fantastic that she supports her local charities. She rotates her fundraiser items and the current item is the Happy Dog Zipper Case, of which 75% of the purchase price is going to support the Seattle Pug Rescue! It would be a perfect makeup case.
