I had such an amazing time at the Brahmin event on Saturday. For those of you who missed it, we had a bellini bar set up, some delicious Christmas cookies, a personalization bar so that you could add a little something extra to your bag, and the entire store was 25% off! I really enjoyed spending the morning browsing through Brahmin’s new collection while trying to pick out a bag for myself. There were too many great options (I think it took me three hours to finally choose!)

I loved seeing everyone come into the store carrying their own Brahmin bags. It is always nice seeing that kind of loyalty. I also had the privilege of sharing why I love Brahmin to some of those who had never been in the store before! The event was called The Art Of Gifting, because well, who doesn’t love getting a handbag for Christmas?! Some men even walked in with a full list in their hand! I wish I could get my boyfriend to do something like that. I think the most popular items were definitely the crossbodys. I feel like every person that came into the store left with at least one crossbody each! I think one family left with five new handbags!
Did you know that it takes two dozen artisans and over 100 steps to complete each of their bags? That is the kind of detail and care you get with Brahmin! They search the globe for the best premium leather. I walked around the store all morning just eyeing all the beautiful pieces and all of the intricate work that went into each bag! Now I know why each bag lasts for years and years.
I ended up buying the Paris Tote in Pecan. I think it is going to be such a great bag to take to work! It even has a pocked inside for my water bottle! I love the size and how long the shoulder straps are on the bag (the perfect length). The pecan color is beautiful and will go with anything. The one you see here in the photos is black (I was pretty torn between the two)!
If you missed the event, that’s OK! You can still shop online or head to a Brahmin store near you today. They have an amazing selection of handbags as well as a great selection of gifts for this holiday season!
For those of you who came, I cannot wait to see a photo of your new bag! Please make sure to use the hashtag #brahmin so we can see how you styled it! I enjoyed meeting you, and hope you have an amazing holiday season.
