Things of beauty: Missibaba bags
Bags are like relationships – some are fun and short-lived (remember moon bags?) and others turn into life-long partnerships. Investing in the latter ultimately makes the most sense, which is why we simply LOVE the Missibaba Delicious Monster Tote. A beautifully made quality bag with loads of personality.
One of our favourite local brands, Missibaba handbags have been on the Smartgirl arm-candy whish list for quite some time! Adored by celebrities, style icons and fashion editors alike, these beautifully crafted accessories exude exotic exuberance and sophisticated charm.
This season, we are especially enchanted by the eye catching Delicious Monster Tote. Mixing embellished hand-stitched leather motifs in glamorous metallic and vibrant hues, this proudly South African tote is wonderfully spacious. Not just another It-bag, but a quality leather tote that will do everything from stash your everyday-essentials to carry your laptop and notebook to meetings.
This Valentine’s day, we’re teaming the gorgeous yellow-leather Delicious Monster Tote with a red Zara jumpsuit and nude Nine West strappy sandals. Perfect for date night!
