Pick of the Week: A Summer Essential
For those ladies who've ever been to a summer festival, fair, concert or outdoor shindig, one thing is for sure: you don't want to carry a huge, heavy handbag. At least I don't. I've found that when I carry a large handbag I get warmer because of the bulk, and my bag often brushes against people in crowded areas. My solution is to carry a sleek crossbody bag or a small wristlet that loops around my wrist. But it's hard finding a great wristlet that is large enough to carry the essentials AND look cute. Many of them are very small!
I've perused EuropeanMarket.us before, a Madison website that offers a nice curated selection of goods from France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and more. And these French canvas wristlets are amazing! At $40, these could easily be twice the price and look like they could be found in a pricier boutique (the stripes are very Coach-like, no?). Which is ironic, because according to the product description: "In fact, [owner] Sandrine worked at Hermès, so this duo knows fashion and high quality." These are made in a small leather studio that makes all of their purses, bags, belts and bracelets by hand.
