No Junk In This Trunk! – The Island Bag Trunk Show.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

A warm Saturday evening with lots of beautiful treasures to be found! The Island Bags by Lilian Russell Trunk Show was the perfect way to close out my Saturday evening.The Lone Star Restaurant served as a fitting back drop for this eclectic mix of bags, jewellery and clothing and let’s just say the ladies who came out had no reason to be disappointed. Island Bags have long been an easy and convenient choice of mine. They are lightweight, spacious, washable, and that simple tassels detail ads an element of elegance. They are easy to dress up or to wear with denim or even a bikini – so when I heard that the brand was expanding I was excited to see what they had to offer.

True to form, they brought out a selection of pieces that are both aesthetically appealing and yet practical. Breathable fabrics make them great for tropical climates and yet easy to layer if you’re going to need to bundle up.

The aesthetic of the evening was all about tassels, stripes and tribal influences accompanied by delicate yet chunky jewels that work as the perfect statement pieces against voluminous cotton blouses or the brand’s meticulously adorned kaftans. The stripe clutch above was one of my favourites of the evening and I almost stole Esther’s top right of her! (as seen below) I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this brand and to get my hands on this gorgeous top… I already know how I am wearing it.
