UK plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel gives you an introductory course to some BEAUTIFUL Scottish handbags in this Brand Crush post, brought to you by VVA.
I recently discovered VVA when their Instagram account followed mine. Their aesthetic is 100% pure luxury. Obviously their products are lush, and their photos reflect that tremendously.
I ADORE that the brand is based in Scotland! As a blogger it's hard not to feel like all of the great brands and opportunities are based in England. I was excited to contact VVA and potentially work with them! I was thrilled to receive this beautifully crafted tassel!
Let me tell you, I'm a big fan of tassels. I've already got 3-4 in my collection, but none of them are as beautifully crafted as this one. This is the bright pink tassel, and like all VVA products is made using the finest leathers and silver nickel finishings. My cheaper and lower quality tassels are stiff and short because they're synthetic. It would be fantastic if VVA expanded to gold and copper finishings in the future!
VVA's lovely branding carries through to every aspect of their packaging. The black tissue paper is sealed with a VVA branded sticker, as is the high quality dust bag that comes with every item. Yes, even the tassels!
*note, VVA is not the best choice for vegans.*
I've got MAJOR handbag envy, so I've selected my top picks from VVA's lates SS/16 Campaign.
The Ivy is a fabulous bag that can be worn as a clutch, or with an optional detatchable strap. The tassel and strap are both completely customisable. See the wee pouch on the Dahlia bag? THAT is the Ivy! It's completely removable!
The Dahlia is the most popular piece VVA makes. The combinations of the core bag, strap, Ivy, and tassel are nearly endless! I'd love to mix the Hydrangea blue base with the snakeskin Ivy and a blue tassel.
Willow is the smallest bag available from VVA. You can get an idea for size in the Instagram post above. The Willow would be great for my husband! He's a sucker for chevron, and this would hold his grooming tools splendidly. As for me, I'm sucker for a wee bit of tartan!
