My Latest Obsession: Callista Crafts
It's not often an entirely new handbag brand comes along that you actually WANT to wear...
Most people want to buy the newest season designer handbag (think Gucci) OR wear their tried and true classic that is timeless (think Hermes). Then there are those of us who fall in between. Personally, I have a hard time justifying dropping $3K or more on the new season "it" bag that, let's face it, I'll only wear for one season. On the other hand, a little seasonal newness never killed anyone.
In comes Callista Crafts. Handmade in Greece, these bags offer seasonal colors and textures, but the shapes remain classic and sophisticated from season to season. This past summer, my Callista white leather tote and tan snakeskin clutch were the perfect staples whether I was in the city or by the beach. This winter, I am coveting their crimson Claret Tote as my "all around town" bag, big enough to hold my laptop yet feeling super luxe in suede. Most importantly, these bags won't break the bank... leaving room in your budget for your other new season staples.
