Brand introduction: Brighton - all things bags! (And jewelry, and home decor, but that's a story for another day)

You guys know that I love globetrotting. I try to travel as much as possible and since I also love fashion, I always hope to come across new brands I haven't heard of before. Now with today's brand I must admit it was a rather funny situation.

You all probably know that I live in London, which is close to Brighton, a popular British seaside town. So when I passed by the store in California I thought it was a British brand that had expanded to the US. But this couldn't be further from the truth.

It is, in fact, a family owned US based brand - LA based, to be exact. So the curious little thing that I am I opened the door and stepped inside. And I was thoroughly impressed ! The company offers a wide variety of bags, jewelry, belts and shades, home decor and even footwear ! Everything is created by their own designers who make sure the products are well taken care of from sketch to sale. And those designers are real creative minds, judging by what they had on display in store.

I could throw hundreds of pictures with gorgeous designs at you, but I thought for today I should simply focus on every girl's favorite accessory: bags!

I love that lots of their designs are very classic and elegant. You feel as if you are carrying a high-end designer product - but for a much smaller price tag. I don't know about you but for me that's win-win!

But they also have quirky designs like those last two bags I posted pictures of. They do show lots attention to detail but the designs are fun and get you in the mood for a wonderful beach vacation.

If I could pick any of the bags above though, I would probably pick either the first or second one. I just love how high end yet girly they look!

If you excuse me now, I need to keep binge-windowshop their site!
