WHEN IN MANILA, the bag you are carrying can either make or break your outfit. I still remember the time when Victoria Beckham carried a faux Louis Vuitton bag. Her outfit as usual was just fab but the faux bag was too much of a deal breaker. Thankfully, Marc Jacobs saved her and sent her a real one.
I don’t think a bag must carry a designer’s name before it can pass as something fabulous. Nowadays, even local brands are carrying topnotch quality with Proenza Schouler-esque design. One of my personal fave local bag brands is Vesti because they opt to use hand-woven indigenous fabrics from the different Tribes and communities in Mindanao and turn into a bag Rachel Zoe would love to carry. Among Vesti’s wonderful bag designs, here are my top 3!
I love vintage looking finds and this bag from Vesti is no exception! I love how the chain of the bag and the knobs spell vintage while the print screams modernity! This is definitely the best way to amp up a vintage looking find.
If you guys don’t know by now, I’m a make-up junkie. I always have a hard time finding a cute pouch to store my cosmetics whenever I travel but lookie here, this uber cute and uber chic make-up bag from Vesti is the answer to my prayers. So fab!
I’m such a Carrie Bradshaw lover. I am! I love anything that has Carrie written all over and this clutch from Vesti does just that! That zebra looking print, so Carrie Bradshaw and that neon pinkish color, definitely Carrie!
So When In Manila readers, if you’re thinking of expanding your bag collections and are craving for something unique and homegrown, check out Vesti for handwoven indigenous bags even the fab Rachel Zoe would kill for WHEN IN MANILA.
