When it comes to handbags, I’m always drawn towards those that are more simple in design (no flashy logos or crazy prints for me). Carolyn Tillman (the same lady behind the adorable Tilly Maison trays) seems to share in my sentiment. Her newest Etsy shop MATINE offers leather accessories – everything from totes to iPad cases – with a simple-but-chic flair. Handmade by Carolyn herself, each item is unique and has its own distinct details (a gold-painted corner, a scalloped edge, a perfect polka-dot print). My favorite is the petite Avgvst Clutch. It’s just the right size – big enough to fit my evening necessities, but small enough to work as a wallet stashed in a bigger tote. Sounds like an ideal place to start your holiday shopping, if you ask me.
