31 corn lane

The ladies behind 31 Corn Lane never fail to amaze me with their fun, retro-inspired collections of bags and accessories. I first fell in love with their "holly hobby" collection early last year. The primary color scheme, patchwork details and oversized buttons were right up my alley. I still use my hobby messenger bag all the time. I even thought about purchasing a second one in case the one I have gets misplaced or destroyed by my cat (though she seems to love it as much as I do, or at least she loves sleeping on it), but I was sad to find out that it's no longer being sold. I got over that disappointment quickly, though, after catching a glimpse of their new summer collection, which is now available through fredflare.com and 31CL's online shop.

The oversized tote is perfect for daytime summer outings at the beach or park. The foldover clutch bag is, as fredflare.com so aptly put it, "totes genius"! I love its versatility and playfulness. Both bags also come with cute removable pins and, like all of 31 Corn Lane's designs, are 100% vegan-friendly.

I'm taking a little trip to my favorite city in the world, San Francisco. I'll be gone until next Monday. After I get back I'll start preparing for a big May Ninja Vintage update. See you soon!
