Few things have the ability to rival an item you just purchased that is not only durable, stylish, gets the job done (whatever that may be), is relatively affordable and won’t cause you to question said purchase with doubt and regret mere moments or days after. And so begins the start of our new column on The Weekly Cut dubbed “The One Where/When/With” (fill in with the appropriate adverb). Launching this February, our team will aim to help you discover what we’re currently coveting and clicked “buy now” on. Whether it’s the latest face wash that blows out of the way any other product you’ve used before to clean your skin, that one style of boots you swear can be purchased on the high street as opposed to at a high-end price, that one plant that transformed the vibe of your home and also acts as a natural antidepressant, just to name a few. Welcome to the one thing you share with and text everyone about and influence to buy for their own pleasure too!
Dipping a toe into the water of fresh new arrivals and mere moments later you find yourself purchasing something you may or may not have needed to begin with. This week on The One With, we share a tiny bag, so precious and so fitting with any evening wear piece and sustainably made on top of that. The founders of Vanina believe in a handcrafted method to create their bags, using up-cycling and zero-waste materials to promote environmental awareness. Those are things we can and should all get behind, especially when the end result is a collection of fabulous handbags to add a little shine to your outfit.
We particularly love this one, delicately designed with flowers, a long chain to wear over your shoulder and multi-colored tones shining through the bag’s materials, which vary from food packaging, gold-plated brass and acrylic. What’s more, it’s under £400 and a definite investment piece to add to your wardrobe!
