All About The Details


Boring outfits are so last season. I love taking simple pieces and adding fun accessories turning my outfit from drab to fab. Today’s post highlights my new colorful bag from Upcycled Styles. My embellished cross body bag causes heads to turn and it never fails to get people inquiring as to where I found such a unique item.


The answer is Upcycled Styles. This registered Thai company upholds and follows a Fair Labor and Child Labor policy. Upcycled Styles strives to promote ethical working conditions to make sure each of their workers have access to life essentials and education to succeed in life. Upcycled Styles works closely with the Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand and showcases these artisans’ talents and creativity.


I found out that my bag was made by a group of ten gifted women. All of them added their personal touch to my bag and I couldn’t be more proud to wear it. I enjoy wearing this bag knowing that not only does it look good, but I am doing good promoting a company that practices fair work practices.


The colors, pattern, and fringe give this purse a boho vibe, which we all know is my favorite style.


My casual, laid back look would not be complete without this black and white checkerboard print shirtdress from Zara. With long sleeves and dark colors, it makes for a great piece to wear as the weather transitions from summer to autumn.


When in doubt, for shoes, I always turn to my black Converse. Simple, sporty, and stylish. Perfect.

Since this dress has a low neck, the perfect accessory is a short necklace. I love my black suede cord necklace with inspirational words. This motivates throughout the day.


I added more to my look by sporting a pair of multi colored sunglasses. Thanks to a random street vendor in New York City, these sunglasses are my go-to pair when I want to feel extra cool.


If you are looking for unique, colorful, detailed bags, wallets, clothes, and accessories, look no further than Upcycled Styles. As you can see, I am obsessed with their eye-catching bags and will be giving away a very special bag to one of my readers. Interested in winning this colorful, statement bag? It’s easy; just leave me a comment telling me how you would style a popular Upcycled Styles bag.

    I would have definitely stopped you on the street and asked about the bag. I always enjoy hearing stories behind some of the things that people buy, especially since some of my favorite pieces are very special to me in terms of how they came into my life. The gingham print was a nice graphic contrast to that bag!

    Such a gorgeous and unique bag! Love the fringe and the embellishments! I would probably style it with a pretty simple color scheme, like you have, to keep the focus on the bag. Maybe a basic black tee and jeans. Or maybe a green dress to complement the embellishments.
