Red, Chic, and Blue

July 4th weekend is approaching, and we are busy planning outfits for all of the events on our social calendar. Fireworks, picnics on the beach, backyard barbecues, and boat excursions… so many occasions demanding red, white, and blue ensemble!

One of our favorite (and easiest!) outfits is a little white dress paired with red and blue accessories. A handbag that pops in a patriotic hue is the perfect way to feel festive for any occasion. Here are some of our favorites:

Shop all red and blue handbags here.

If shopping is on your agenda this holiday weekend, be sure to pop into one of our Brahmin boutiques or outlet locations for star-spangled savings. See all locations here.

Happy birthday, America! Wishing each of you a very happy July 4th weekend!

Meet: Finley

We don’t introduce new styles lightly around here, so when a new handbag makes its debut, it’s a big deal. Today, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Finley: our newest carryall that is sure to steal your heart.

Think of this as your new go-to work bag to carry you from the office to anywhere you may be headed after. Sophisticated, chic, and with plenty of space, it will hold all of your essentials in style and add polish to any ensemble. Meagan of Meagan’s Moda added a little Italian flair to her look by pairing her Finley with a printed scarf, chic stripes, and a bold red lip. We love how her red bag really pops and pulls the entire look together.      

PS: Doesn't the Colosseum have you craving a Roman holiday? Take note from Meagan and get your Finley here. Arrivederci!

Sonny Side Up

One of our favorite new styles for the sunny days of spring and summer is aptly named the Sonny. Saddle bags are trending in a major way, and Sonny is the utmost saddle. The editors of Harper’s Bazaar agree, and our Sonny was featured in the June issue.

Shop the Sonny in a variety of colors…which is your favorite?
