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.Â HowÂ beautiful is this Celeste bag?Â Â This one pieceÂ satisfied all of the bride’sÂ “somethings”!Â The zipper pull is a charm given toÂ the brides’Â mother byÂ the brides’ fatherÂ on their wedding day, the flower was taken from the brides’ sister’s veil, and for the something blue?Â 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.Â 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.Â 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!Â It would be a perfect makeup case.
