11 Recommendations from The Trendy Wayuu Bags

The Wayuu tribe, located in Colombia, was most famous for its crafts, more specifically by the Wayuu bags, main source of income of the tribe.

As all the work of making handbags is 100% manual, so it is virtually impossible to have two bags the same, which makes the work even more unique and special.

Always very deprived, cheerful and colorful, the bags are making the head of the fashionistas on duty. Their success is so absurd that despite the price is nothing inviting, they run out quickly in websites and physical stores all the same.

Are already in love? I’m crazy for wanting one for myself, but I confess that I can’t bring myself to pay the actual price at around 600 R$! For those who are about to travel to there, in the “source” (Colombia) we find the most desired bags of the moment from 20 bucks! A fairer price, don’t you agree?

From what I researched, the value of the merchandise is directly related to the complexity of their geometric shapes and each “design” has the meaning of some element of the tribe, as food, stars and animals.
So … If anyone is going to ride through Colombia, please bring back the souvenir.

Meanwhile … We’re just loving the looks divos mounted with handbags and praying for the Chinese girls started manufacturing them too!

These handbags perfectly mix with our climate, and various bloggers have already joined this fashion:

And then girls … What do you think?

Have you seen any wayuu bag sold around here?

5 Masterpieces That Mark The Return of the Purses

Whoever in their twenties surely remember this accessory so controversial that it was virtually banished from the world of fashion in the 80s.

Leaving aside my personal vision, truth be told: is it useful? Yes. Is ugly? No, it’s awful!

I’d rather carry 1000 things on hand wearing a Fanny Pack, but despite some people are timid about it, they are appearing in several parades, street style looks and AMAZINGLY already has a lot of celebrity using and abusing this accessory around.

Like everything else in life, they went through a makeover and, of course, evolved. Are more feminine, and I think now I can see that they are, in fact, a belt with a mini bag attached (the exception of Chanel, which continues to be a Fanny Pack!), more stylized, delicately and somehow, fashionista.

I read once that we Brazilians have a very large bias with certain “names” that have already been hits and which, after a certain time caused such hatred that became synonymous with kitsch and, because of this, we chose to “Rename” the fashions. This actually happens, as was the case with flared pants (today, remodeled, Flare Pants), of Babuches (today, Home) and several other trends that ended up coming back with different names.

Searching the internet, I found some very acceptable looks, can you believe that? I still wouldn’t carry them, but I have not found them so hideous like in the past!

And so, divas, do you believe in the return of Fanny Packs?

Which name do you think they will come back by? How we love “Americanize” everything, I bet on the Belt Purse or Belt Bag, how about you??
