Dress Well: TEXI On My Mind

Today I am SO excited to be posting about my brand-new TEXI leather bag. In reading this blog you may have picked up on the fact that my purse collection is tiny. I have two main bags that I carry regularly, and two others that get subbed in every once in awhile. That's it. But as of this week, things are changing.

I don't have few bags by choice - if I had unlimited money, I would also have unlimited purses. However, given the prevailing price of purses today and given how picky I am about appearance and quality of my bags, I struggle to find anything on-trend and attractive that doesn't literally cost $1,000.

My point, you ask? Given everything above, I could not be happier to have my lovely, durable, reasonably-priced TEXI bag. I've been carrying it everywhere since I got it about a week ago and I couldn't be a bigger fan of the gorgeous handcrafted leather AND the fact that it fits all the stuff I lug to and from work - laptop, wallet, chapstick collection, car keys, jacket, etc.

Even better, this bag was designed and produced by one of my wonderful friends from back home who, along with her business partner, is running TEXI by adhering to an admirable creed--dedicating their business to bringing textile manufacturing jobs back to the United States.

That's right--this beautiful baby was truly made in the USA. You can learn all about TEXI's mission on their website, where you can also buy one of these bags for yourself. I can't recommend it highly enough--I only wish I'd owned this bad boy back when I was schlepping books across campus.DSC_8192
