2014 is the year to start shopping local if you already haven’t. I realize we all have our favorite designers and goodies that we can’t live without. I am guilty as charged when it comes to my favorite staple pieces but, its time I add some local Indy based designers to my list of favorites! Lets talk about some amazing leather bags. I recently visited House of 5th to meet with the man behind the brand, Truen Jaimes. His unique leather bags and accessories really are the perfect mix between urban chic and classic design.

Let me introduce the St. Elle handbag! This fabulous bag is based on the very popular and iconic Elliot Traveler bag. Such wonderful detail has been put into every part of the St. Elle. My favorite detail is the spill proof lining that is located inside the handbag. This can be zipped out and washed when needed. This is a great way to always keep your handbag looking fresh and clean. Now for the most exciting news, in just a few weeks you will be able to see my very own St. Elle bag with the leather I specially picked. Talk about the hard part, all of the leather options were so beautiful and amazing. It was tuff to pick but, I think I found one that is just perfect.
