here’s the thing: i’m the child of two early adopters. my house growing up was always chock full of the first versions of things, from technology to music and so on. it’s no surprise i would grow to love fashion, trendy pieces, and seeing styles that others might think are bizarre and knowing the potential they had. i call it a gift! just like my ability to eat a magnitude of carbs in one sitting without having a heart attack.
cut to last summer when the slew of bloggers i follow on Instagram all starting wearing this one bag that i couldnt recognize (and thats coming from someone who works in handbags) but also totally needed immediately. i scoured the internet, found the new love of my closet only to see it was on a waitlist of a few months. UGHHHHHHHHHH FINE. its like a boy who doesnt text you back now you just think about it MORE. i signed up for the Gaia’s Ark bag in Natural, the Small Size.
so then the waiting game ensued. of course there were other options like the ones before but i wanted the original. square 1. first edition. the classic man, ya know? even though these did all give me the emoji heart eyes
needless to say, i now have my bag and im OBSESSED with it! i can wear this with a date night dress or jeans and a tee shirt, what more could you ask for?? i personally bought the Small and think it’s the perfect size – the Large looks …awkward to me honestly and can only be worn in certain ways. the Small Natural Bamboo is $150 and worth every penny ! you can buy it by clicking here or any of the pictures above. it’s currently on Pre-sale on Cult Gaia and sounds like you’d receive in August – still enough time to enjoy in the summer and early Fall!
let me know if you choose one! i’d love to see you pics of whichever one you choose 🙂
