Eileen Fisher harem pants | Mine are size medium because I wanted them to be longer, but small fit well. EF runs large IMO.
James Perse tank top
Demy Lee sweater (n/a)
Mephisto Helen sandals | I have always preferred these to the Birkenstock Gizah sandals on me, I just like the shape better, and the Mephisto footbed is much more “sturdy”. Select colors on sale at Amazon. these NEVER go on sale. NEVER. This is my third pair.
Custom leather tote bag by Ad Monish
Since I’m really tempted to wear these every day, I decided to make Mondays “Harem Pants” day to make it easier. Clearly, I’m obsessed. If you are too, be sure to follow my harem style board on Pinterest. And Look how cute Sarge in Charge is in her Eileen Fisher harem pants! 🙂 Truly, I know these aren’t for everyone, but I think they’re fabulous, easy, stylish and so chic. Now I want all of the harem pants…
But on to the bag. I know now, and no one will ever be able to convince me otherwise, that if you really want THE PERFECT BAG, you have to get it custom made. I’ve been on a search for the perfect tote bag forever, and now thanks to my friends at Ad Monish, I have it. And it will last forever. It’s not entirely a custom bag, it was patterned after one that my friend Rachel has that I loved the moment I saw. But this one is different leather, a bit thicker, has an outside pocket large enough to fit my gigantic phone (Samsung galaxy note 2) and the shoulder straps are a bit longer. Absolutely nothing compares to having a bag made for you by someone who knows you and knows what you like; even the little details like the studs and grommets are just my style. Just knowing how much thought and attention to detail went into creating this bag gives it so much more meaning than absolutely ANY other bag could. Check out their Facebook page for more photos of their work, and if you’re interested in getting in touch with Ad Monish for your own custom bag, leave a comment and I’ll send you their email address. I’ll be posting lots more photos and doing a new “What’s in my Bag” video with it next week, so please stay tuned!!
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you have a great week!
Have you ever had something custom made for you? How did it turn out? What was it?
