Cambridge Satchel Co. Make It a Revolution

Psst... what's a lot of neon and a little bit of fur?

Any guesses?  Any guesses at all?

It's this beauty.

My brand spanking new Cambridge Satchel Company Fluoro bag in bright orange! Plus a very suiting faux fox tail from Front and Company.

I first saw this bag when I was in Montreal during the summer time. This very stylish girl wore her bright pink one with a simple outfit and neon shoes. I knew I want my very own!

I love bags that are so bright it can't possibly match anything, yet it matches everything.

I am so glad this it bag can be had at retailers such as Holt Renfrew and Aritzia. They have also expanded to Shopbop and Bloomingdales. As outlined by this concise PurseBlog entry.

Here she is in action. Can you guess where we are?

How about now?

Looks like a bustling place, wherever it is.

Give up?

Well, we were at Make It! The Handmade Revolution fair.

I won tickets to this fair via one of the Modline's facebook contest. The Modline is an online grab mag of everything about local Vancouver Fashion, Music and Art. I have had the pleasure of knowing some of the writers and they are a bunch of the most positive and talented people one can meet.

I was so pumped about the event especially since I found out about it via the Modline.

Wow, what a great start! This event is harnessing green energy.
Bullfrog Power, as I just learned, is Canada's 100% green energy provider, offers homes and businesses clean, renewable energy solutions.

I love hand made crafts, in fact, that day I was wearing my own handmade necklace.

I made this vintage skeleton key necklace at I Found Gallery.

The fair was bustling, since over 110 designers attended, this was their largest event yet.

I was blinded by all the beautiful hand crafted gems all around me.

I have always had a soft spot for things made with extra care.

Then I spotted a BUNNY HAT!!

Ooo, button rings! From Kohana Jewellery. I love it when everyday mundane objects can be turned into works of art.

I regret not taking more cards with me. But excitment and sparkly things temporarily fried my brain. These are what I came home with.

  1. I was at Make it on Sunday! I had a 2-for-1 coupon...not quite as good as a free ticket, but good enough! I fell in love with a leather cuff bracelet, and since I couldn't find one there that fit my wrist, the designer is making one for me and I'll pick it up this Sunday at Got Craft :)
