Hello hello! We’ve missed you in our Holiday festivities-filled time away. Now rested and cookie-filled, we’re back and rearing to go. Is there any way better to resume the fun than with an earthy, studded, cooler-than-cool dose of handbagness? I say not. Meet the lovely Ella Rose Stud Tote.
Before my own cross over to the stud side, my avoidance of the embelishment stemmed from its inherent corralation to goth and punk-rock looks — styles I admire on others, but for the most part am not cool enough to pull off myself.
I realized however that I can reap the benefits of studs’ coolness. The key is finding the right level of studiness (Yes, I made it up. Go with it.). Enter the Elle Rose Stud Tote. Items like this give you a great combo of earthy subtly and hard-edge rock n’ roll — and are thus easy peasy to pull off.
What else is great about the Ella? The marbled, slightly-crinkled exterior lends a vintage feel and the braided handle ups the uniqueness. Although my favorite decorative detail is the interior lining. Open this baby up to find purple and orange animal print. You weren’t expecting that, were you?
Let’s talk functionality. The Ella Rose Stud Tote‘s exterior is covered in handy zippered pockets, and the interior offers one zippered pocket and two open top pockets.
So what have we learned?
- Studs are not as scary as you might think.
- You can rock studs too.
- You need this bag.
