Bag Crush: Oliveve

Have you heard of the bag brand Oliveve yet? This New York based company was new to me until this very week, when I came across one of their bags while browsing the Shopbop sale (FYI: you can still get 25% off your purchase through tonight with code SPRING25). I was really drawn to the Zoe tote’s casual elegance — pebbled leather, coupled with a certain “cool girl” slouchiness would make this a perfect everyday bag in California’s delightful spring/summer temps.

I ended up googling Oliveve to learn more about the company and was pleasantly surprised. Launched in 2010, founders Lynn and Kristi met while representing various fashion and accessories designers, and teamed up to create their own line of handbags. All the bags are designed and manufactured in New York, and early reviews of the line (though now a few years old) pointed to great quality leather. I can’t wait to get my hands on one to see for myself.

Yes, that’s right. I couldn’t resist taking advantage of a 25% discount, so I scooped up the Zoe bag in navy (though I think the Maggie tote is just beautiful, too). Paired with white jeans and sandals this summer? Oh yeah. Many of Oliveve’s bags are sold out on their own website, but you can find them at these stockists (including Shopbop, Calypso, Anthropologie, and Free People!).

Aren’t they pretty??

    That’s a neutral shade that you don’t always see – so creamy and beautiful!
