Okay, so I have a decent sized crush on designer Orla Kiely. I
have only owned one of her bags which I bought with a Christmas bonus, and I wore
it to death. I am holding out until my next birthday for a
replacement, however her spring rhododendron pattern is really making me wish September was sooner.
The Orla Kiely rhododendron bag
comes in 3 colors as I have discoverd through my ebay stalking, though
her website only
shows granite and poppy, both stunning! And the granite is a nice
alternative to black if you have trouble leaping to color, but want a
bag that’s more seasonal.
You can also find Kiely’s rhododendron pattern as a high end diaper bag, which admittedly is a big splurge. I say, go for one of the less expensive bags with the same stylish impact. Her big summer
flower pattern is pretty fabulous as well and for $145 the medium tote seems like
the best designer buy of the season.
Oh Orla, one of these days, I will have a closet full of your fabulousness and room wallpapered in your in stems. – Stephanie M
