We all have our vices. For some, it’s makeup, others maybe it’s shoes; but for me, it has always been a good handbag. They are my weakness. Let me explain! I have a lot going on, so I have to carry around a million things. There’s my cell/charger, lipstick, wallet, compact, my planner, etc. – so naturally, I need somewhere to put everything (don’t lie girls you know you can relate)! Purses are where you store all these secret treasures so you can face the day head on and worry free. Not only that, they are also the perfect accessory to provide a “wow-factor” or help pull a look together.
Well, for those of you who agree – we’ve got a new #BALMfave alert: Oliver Bilou. I heard about the brand through a friend and when I went to do some online research on their site, I was immediately hooked from the first line: “We created Oliver Bilou because we believe life’s too short to settle – too short to settle for that guy, too short to settle for that job, and most of all, too short to settle for that handbag!” Um helloooo, now you’ve got my attention.
Not only does OB send a relatable message through the web – each bag has it’s own motivational tagline. Whether you’re reaching in to grab a piece of gum as your crush walks by or maybe grabbing your business card out for a potential new client; your #OBbestie is right there cheering you on. Who doesn’t want the extra vote of confidence?
Even better than that, a portion of the proceeds from each bag is donated to a children’s charity. The idea behind this is to help encourage, inspire, and support girls starting at a young age. Y’all know us Catholic School Girls are all about that! If you ask me, that fully justifies this newest little addiction of ours. So whether you prefer Jade, Mia or Amy (oh yeah, each bag has it’s own name) it’s all good because the OB gang is #SquadGoals through and through.
I know you’re jealous but they don’t have to be – we are hooking you babes up with our special discount code so you can get a bag of your choice! Now head over to OliverBilou.com and scoop one up, just enter ‘bostonalamode’ at check out xo
