Jessica Bratich is my new girl crush. A local WA designer who makes stylish, yet affordable pieces that are exceptionally good quality. I bought her Zip Wallet in Black mid 2012 for $99.95 and it is still in perfect condition. The reason why I bought it was because it opens out like a book, has a space to hold a gazillion cards, a pen and a compartment big enough for your passport. If you don’t have too many receipts stuffed in there, like me, then you can fit your Phone in too. That and the inside is a beautiful turquoise. You have to see this wallet in person, once you touch it, and the other stuff in her collection, you will know exactly what type of quality I am talking about.
I recently collaborated with Jess to showcase the pieces I love, and I am using the word love with absolute genuineness. I borrowed these pieces to shoot, I had to return them, although I didn’t want to return the Tracey Pencil Case clutch I had to.
“Although she be but little she is fierce”- Shakespeare. My absolute favourite piece in her collection (besides the Zip Wallet) is the Pencil Case clutch in black, it is slim line and small but yet miraculously fits so much. The quote above is appropriate because I canon explain to you how much this bag fits in it, it’s magic! It’s perfect for travelling. I prefer to travel with cross body bags that have straps made of chains as it is almost theft proof as it is near impossible to cut through the straps so I can see this easily becoming my favourite travel companion. The straps are also removable so if you go out for the evening, at home or abroad, then you have a beautiful clutch. It’s like 2 bags in 1. Seriously what’s not to love! Did I tell you how much I love this bag?!?
The next bag is the Jacquie Boy Bag in Stone, the studded bag is perfect for a day look that’s edgy or a night look if you dress it up. It truly is versatile and the neutral colour is easy to work with. Again this bag comes with a chained cross body strap, another perfect companion for travelling.
It’s all in the detail and the Tar Boy Bag has it! This bag is again so versatile for a day and night look. I am sensing a trend with my favourite pieces as this also come with a chained cross body strap. What can I say I am a sucker for versatility, and quality.
Jessica Bratich has a collection that is function-able and stylish and these bags are made from vegan leather which is extremely important to me, and should be to you too. Her bags are affordable and the perfect piece to update every wardrobe for the new year. They are also on sale so head to http://jessicabratich.com to check it out.
