I have always loved a high quality handbag that has a classic, clean look. Then I found out about 88, which is a brand that offers gorgeous, vegan handbags made with the highest quality, environmentally-friendly vegan leathers. So you know when you purchase something from them that no animal products are used. They also donate a % of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world.

I had a really hard time deciding which handbag I wanted after looking at 88’s website. They have a bunch of great styles…pretty much something for everyone and every situation. I’m calling this my classic look, and I am tempted to get something else for more of a fun look. 😉 I chose the Avis Mini Tote Crossbody in Pearl Gray, and I would love to get another one in the Tan color. This handbag goes with everything!
This handbag is a crossbody, so you can carry it or put it on/across your shoulder. I also love that it is a mini tote, so it isn’t something large that I have to take with me. I will say that this bag can still hold a TON, though! It is very roomy, and it has two inside, organizational pockets. One has a zipper that I use for more important things (credit card holder, etc), and I put my cell phone in the other one. All of the rest of my stuff goes in the middle. Perfect! Also, my dress is from the Banana Republic Factory, and my crochet wedges are the ones you have seen me wear before from Payless.
88 has such gorgeous, vegan handbags, and that is because they take great pride in the quality of their final products. They develop all of their own custom hardware, and they have a quality assurance team that inspects all aspects of production.
Every handbag also has 88’s logo, which has some pretty neat meanings behind it. For example, 88 is the number of constellations in the sky, and it also represents the cycle of creation and recreation. The snake swallowing its own tail is an ancient Egyptian symbol for the self sustaining, self contained universe. These ideas and a few others are the symbolic meanings of the brand 88.
So make sure to look at the 88 website, and check out all of their gorgeous, vegan handbags! 🙂
