Ya’ll know I have a slight obsession with bags, and crossbody bags are one of my all time favorite styles. I carry a huge tote to work everyday, so when I’m not at work, I want something smaller and easy to carry. When I heard DAAME was releasing their very first crossbody, I knew it would be good.
Let me give you a little on Daame’s backstory – This company really embodies their “Make Good, Do Good” attitude, and the new Tate bag is no exception. The bag itself is made entirely of leather that would otherwise be discarded. These cut leather pieces are specially engineered and made into the beautiful bag you see here. I love a company that not only cares about making great products, but also cares for the environment and world we live in.
RIVER OAKS DISTRICT
Over the weekend Hunter and I went to check out some new places in River Oaks district before seeing the new Justice League movie (so good by the way)! River Oaks is one of the best places (in my opinion) in Houston to explore! It’s not only gorgeous, but you can find just about any shop there, from Tom Ford to Planet Blue. I love to window shop mostly, then enjoy drinks and dinner! When we want a low-key date night, we opt for Hopdoddy Burger bar or iPic theater. If we feel like a nice dinner then Le Colonial or Steak 48 are amazing. I especially love this area during the holidays – the streets are lined with Christmas lights and decor and it’s just so pretty.
THE TATE CROSSBODY
This bag was literally perfect for running around River Oaks, I almost forgot I was wearing it most of the time until I’d catch a glimpse of myself in a store window. I love that I can wear it crossbody or on one shoulder depending on what I’m doing. It’s the perfect size to fit all of my essentials: phone, card wallet, chapstick, mints, shades, hand lotion, keys. The straps are also completely removeable, which can easily transform this bag into the perfect clutch! Ya’ll know I’m super casual, but a clutch comes in handy at times, like for the wedding I’ll be attending in a few weeks (stay tuned for pictures of it as a clutch).
If you’d like to get a Tate bag of your own, it is currently available in 3 colors (Black, Navy, and Gray) and retails for $135. I think that’s a great price for a quality, essential bag you can wear 3 ways and will carry for years. If you comment on my latest Instagram post and tag @daame, they will send you a special discount code to use. Also, 10% of sales from your purchase will go to support literacy for girls. So many reasons to feel good about your purchase!
