SPRING IS HERE + IT'S TIME FOR A PARTY. DUST OFF THE CHAMPAGNE FLUTES, TURN THE TUNES UP, SLIP ON SOMETHING SPECIAL + LET'S CELEBRATE BEING TOGETHER, IN CRUELTY FREE STYLE.
Whilst we can’t be there to nurse your post event sore head, or put bandaids on your blistered feet, we can suggest some fashion handbag options that will help you make an entrance as well as feel better about the impact you're having on animals + the planet.
Crossbody bags are our style of choice every event season. They allow you to avoid having to juggle your cocktail, canapé + your clutch, and keep you feeling like a carefree creature who doesn't need to limit your hands-on activities. We also embrace the versatility + freedom of choice offered by those that have a handle, for times when you really don't want a crossbody strap impeding your gorgeous outfit.
Here are our top bag picks for events season, whether it's a holiday party, a fancy wedding or simply dinner + drinks with your favourite people.
THE READER SATCHEL
We have to start any 'what to wear to a fancy event' discussion with our signature crossbody style - The Reader Satchel. With its vintage inspired luggage handle + boxy shape, it’s got a 'modern meets nostalgic' mood that always makes a statement + is a fun addition to any event.
You can wear it crossbody or carry by that vintage-style handle for a dressier look, and its multiple gussets + compartments are perfect for fitting your phone, keys, cards, makeup + more.
Check out all the current Reader tones + textures here.
The Dumpling is a distinctive plus one to have on your arm for any event. Modern, slouchy + collapsible, the Dumpling's silhouette makes a bold statement and is decidedly fashion focused.
Don't fret about fitting what you need though - open the dramatic drawcord and you'll find a super roomy interior with bespoke compartments for phone + wallet, plus ample space for extra essentials like makeup, sunglasses, SPF + a power bank to keep you going from day to night.
Grab the Dumpling by the handle or wear as an elegant shoulder bag, and amp up the fashion fun even more by adding a chain bag strap.
The Dumpling comes in Noir, Artichoke, Cinnamon + Citron.
THE BANDOLIER + HIGH ROAD MINI
The Bandolier is an excellent companion for daytime or evening soirees. It's small + boxy, so it's perfect for after 5 events where you just want to dance the night away. Pop in your phone, lipstick, cards, keys + voila! - you’re party ready.
If you love the shape yet crave something a little larger, consider the High Road Mini - it's elongated silhouette gives a sleek look that's perfect for a dressier occasion, and the slightly larger size leaves room for those extra essentials.
GO FOR COLOUR
Party + event dressing invites some statement colour, whether it's soft, pale tones for warm evenings or a hit of dopamine-inducing brights. Black is always classic, yes, but a night out is a great opportunity to try something different.
Lighter tones like Pale Vanilla and Almond keep things summery + fresh, while Citron (yellow) and Lagoon (blue/green) are sure to be noticed.
Don't Forget the Strap
For those seeking a bolder, more opinionated look, all our vegan crossbody bags can be customised with our range of bag straps. Go with the OG Barricade strap, add bold stripes with the Laneway or Corridor, or lean into glamour with the Elemental or Illuminated chain bag straps. Don't forget there's the added benefit of saving 10% on your total purchase when you pair any (full priced) bag + a strap together.
We know race days look glamorous (been there, done that), but we can’t deny horse racing exists to use animals for human profit, and when profit is the main driver, exploitation exists. Horses deserve better from us. We stand with the horses, past + present, who are pushed to triumph for humans + if they’re deemed surplus are sent to a grim + terrifying death.
This year, as always, we believe we can find another reason to get together + celebrate. So we’ll be saying Nup To The Cup.
A toast, to being around the ones we love + celebrating this events season - be well + stay safe beautiful beasts, we so appreciate you being here.
