sucker for a clutch

Last month I hung out with a bunch of designers and fashion/beauty bloggers at Carbon, a boutique in DC offering upscale, high-quality, eco-friendly clothing, shoes, accessories and handbags. While meeting all these fab ladies was my priority, I couldn't resist finally breaking away from the conversations to go drool (i promise i didn't actually drool on the bags, just on myself) over these gah.hah.horgeous bags by Diamantina.

Diamantina was created from the partnership of two good friends, Luciana Gagliardi and Claudia Diamante, who share a passion for fashion and wanted to provide job opportunities to skilled men and women from their home country, Argentina. Behind Diamantina there is the legacy and support of a family-owned Argentine business, which for generations has specialized in producing and exporting genuine leather garments. Pretty cool, huh?

If you, like me, are a super sucker for a well made unique bag, you should really stop into Carbon and see their whole line. They really are beautiful and well crafted. Aaaaaand (i wish i took a picture) they have HOT PINK liners so you can easily see what's in your bag. So thoughtful!
