Zara Terez '14th Precinct' Holster bag
The evening of October 7th was a busy one for me, but I did manage to stop over at the BagTrends party. My advice is to be sure to get to this event early next time! By the time I got there the line was incredibly long, press gift bags and regular gift bags were long gone, the spa room was beyond capacity and there were tons of guests swarming around Phyto Universe!
Since I had two more events to get to, I quickly looked around to see what bags were being showcased. Some of my favorites are Lena Erziak's luxurious leather bags in different shapes and sizes, Adriana Castro's croc totes and python clutches in fuchsia, magenta, green and vivid blue and Emre New York in collaboration with Rebecca Lawlor, mixing fashion and philanthropy. I love Lawlor's patented hand-blown glass heart logo on her bags, promoting awareness for the Hearts of Hope Foundation. Zara Terez makes an on-the-go snap-closure holster bag with a back pocket, available in suede or leather.
