This bag is all you need to crush your deadlines and make it to every appointment in style. Every once in awhile a woman deserves to treat herself to a new bag because “a handbag is a form of self-expression, a mood booster, a love affair, a powerful statement.”
If you all are anything like me then you are constantly on the go as you navigate through discovering a work-life balance as a young woman (or seasoned girl boss, yes mommas, we see you!). This bag will take a little stress off the pressure to put together a look before 8:30 a.m.
The Brooklyn Bag transforms from backpack to shoulder tote in a snap with the removable straps. So for the days when your bag needs to hold notebooks, tablets & meeting plans, you’re armed for success.
I fell in love with this bag at first sight and received countless compliments the first day I took it to work with me. The details are impeccable: the gold chains and zippers make a statement of elegance. The zippers allow the bag to expand easily to fit even more notebooks when necessary.
Melie Bianco is an amazing brand with a commendable purpose. Their mission is simply “to offer affordable luxury to the everyday woman, regardless of her budget.” Their vegan products have been featured in many well-known fashion publications including Marie Claire, Glamour, Instyle, Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Self Magazine and Vogue. Melie Bianco has made cameos on-screen in Good Morning America, Desperate Housewives, The Carrie Diaries, Extra, Dallas and Laguna Beach to name a few.
The intersection of craft, creativity, and character is where the brand sources their designs.
Since leather is the most important by-product of the meat industry, all Melie Bianco bags are made using PU (Polyurethane) which is an animal-friendly alternative to leather. PU is crafted using natural materials for a finish that feels like real leather without the harmful effects of cheap plastic materials like PVC (i.e. it’s not pleather y’all!). In Vogue UK Melie Bianco was granted the Peta UK Vegan Fashion Award for “Best Animal-Friendly Accessories.”
I’m a huge advocate of companies that engage in positive, transparent business. Melie Bianco looks out for their employee's rights too by taking positive corporate social responsibility actions to maintain a transparent supply chain and ensuring that all employees are treated equally regardless of their job title.
