Holiday Gift Idea: Handbags for Music Lovers

Met Opera Music Lover BagsThe Metropolitan Opera Shop has the most amazing gifts – everything from books to jewelry, CDs, DVDs , toys for kids, and tons of other unique accessories.  When I came across these beautifully crafted musical instrument handbags, I knew I had to feature them as one of our holiday gift ideas.  The Piano Wooden Handbag is made from acacia wood, individually carved, painted, and finished by hand by women in a small community in the Philippines. With its keyboard design, a shape reminiscent of a grand piano, black-satin lining with small interior pocket, and a secure gunmetal lock, this bag is definitely a conversation piece. (Sale Price: $264.00)  The Guitar Wooden Bag is also made from acacia wood and individually carved, painted, and finished in the shape of a guitar.  The interior is lined in black satin and features a custom gunmetal lock and wooden handle that rests comfortably on the wrist. (Sale Price: $256.00) The Violin Wooden Handbag has a striking violin design, black-satin lining with small interior pocket, and a concealed black shoulder strap. (Sale Price: $216.00).  All bags are  available at the Met Opera Shop.  Enjoy free shipping on U.S. orders over $75.00 now through December 18, 2014.

Fab Find Under $100: ZARA Ethnic Shopper

ZARA Ethnic ShopperI don’t discriminate when it comes to searching for fab finds to share.  Regardless of your budget, there is always a fabulous handbag within reach.  My latest find is ZARA’s Ethnic Shopper.  I love the color combination and mix of prints used on this spacious tote.  I don’t often see three completely different prints on one bag that actually work really well together.  Features include cotton/polyester/cow leather blend upper, cotton lining with interior zip pocket, exterior zip pocket and adjustable shoulder strap.  The Ethnic Shopper would make a great work bag or travel bag.  Price: $79.00 at ZARA.
