Review: Espe handbag!

I traveled to Winnipeg this weekend to be a bridesmaid in a dear friend's wedding. And I showed up back at home on Sunday night with the BEST bridesmaid's gift ever- a gorgeous handbag from Espe. I am a huge purse collector and have many gorgeous purses, but this one is hands-down my favorite.

This purse is absolutely perfect for me. It's large enough to hold the things that I need to carry around for my family, but not enormous. It can be carried either with the handles or with a detachable shoulder strap. Inside there is a zipper pocket and two unzipped pockets as well. It's lined with a beautiful, soft fabric. I really thought the bag was made of an expensive leather, then I went on the Espe website and learned that it's actually a vegan bag!

Espe is actually a Canadian company with the goal of making beautiful, affordable, cruelty-free and animal-friendly products.  Their product line includes handbags, totes, wallets, accessories and jewelry. In addition to their more "girly" products, they also have a line called Espe Sport which includes great unisex accessories. 

My husband was originally thrilled that I got a beautiful new bag that he didn't have to buy for me, but now I've started my wish list of all the other things that I want to buy from Espe and he's slightly less enthused.  This card holder would be great in my pretty bag, don't you think?

And how cute is this Lulu Coin Wallet!

And this Nectar Tote in green would be so great for summer!

Espe is a Canadian company, but these gorgeous products are available in stores worldwide. Which cannot be a good thing for me and my budget :) If you're in the market for a new bag or wallet or purse accessory, take a look at all the beautiful products that Espe has to offer. 

Disclosure: I received no product and no compensation of any type for this post. Just writing about a great gift that I received and a great company that I just learned about!
