Sun is needed
back with a new article about style hunting. Once again, with our
faithful camera, we wandered around London, in the cold, in the hopes
of finding some really cool people. Well, yes it was freezing but
trendy people face winter with style. And, yes we do have pictures to
outfit was a favourite of ours straight away. She looks effortlessly
cool and trendy. Oversized scarf and woolen cardigan, jeans jacket on
top of a funky polka dots dress, and Doc Martens. A+ style
combination. We. Love. It. The Medium Wine Classic Leather Satchel
would look perfect with this outfit.
Flynn Ryder look-alike, showed us that a Tartan scarf could make an
outfit, and he is rocking these Union Jack Converse. Urban
Messenger Bag of
ours would be a great addition to that outfit.
love Jaleesa's coat, so chic. To brighten up the outfit, as well as a
smile, she was wearing burgundy red Vans. Kaki and Burgundy is really
trendy this season and Jaleesa showcased it in style. Because she

found this pair at the Camden Stables Market. It's one thing to
stylish but to be stylish with your best friend is much more
difficult. However, Harry and Andrew managed it pretty well, don't
you think? We found two bags for them, that would compliment their
already pretty perfect outfit. The
Vintage Office Satchel and The Black Horse.
knows how to work an oversized mustard scarf, and don't we love it?
That outfit is so perfect, it is even hard to describe. Well done, we
had a round of applause for you at My Green Bag. We think our Tan
Leather Doctor Bag would
be a great addition to the look.
photographed Mark in of London's Trade Mark, Camden Lock. His simple
outfit: well tailored coat and Doc Martens works so well. We can
suggest to add our Flight Backpack/Satchel and
here you go, outfit: done.
fell in love with the gorgeous Tilly and her vintage style. She
confessed being a bit of a vintage addict, and to be fair we're not
complaining. Her bag is already really pretty but unfortunately it's
quite unique. However here at My Green Bag we can offer an
alternative: Hand-Stitched Hip Satchel.
walking around Camden Market we came across these lovely boys. Their
style is quite preppy and we thought it could go really well with
some of our designs. The Blue Square Flight Bag and the Brown City
really hope you enjoyed discovering new trends and that our fashion
advice inspired you.

We love their laidback style, both in neutral colours but never boring. And they got their serious model faces on, how cute is that?

Today, we decided to tell you a little more about Emma, the creator of
“Beau Tie”: a very British brand who creates amazing bow ties for all occasions.
She has recently been on an interview with us telling us about her brand, her secrets
and her inspirations.
Do you have a physical shop?I don't, but I do have a couple of stockists; Roullier White in London (a
lifestyle boutique), and HeyDay in Vienna (a wedding shop).
How would you describe your
brand?Classically British with a luxury feel.
How did you find the name of
your brand?I felt that I wanted to use the word 'Beau' because of its meaning, and for
the play on words Beau tie/bow tieWhy did you chose a half
French brand name although you create very British products?Although the word Beau is French, its meaning feels very relevant to my
brand. Beau: a fashionable young man.
How do you target your customers?Largely through social media.
I am a huge fan of Instagram because it's pretty much just based on visuals and
I feel that's a strong point for me. My work is very visual, especially certain
printed fabrics! I love to show 'in the making' and 'behind the scenes' shots.
I think it's also good to show the face behind the brand so customers can see
that I'm just an ordinary person, who happens to make bow ties for a living! It
makes it more relatable and builds a sense of trust.
Where do you find your
inspirations?I find inspiration everywhere. My Favourite part of my job is perusing
charity shops to spot vintage treasures which I can turn into a beautiful bow
tie. I love spending time in fabric shops too. I also found that talking to like-minded
fellow business owners at events and markets is always a great way to gain new
insights and ideas.
What do you prefer in British
fashion?There is so much I love about British fashion: The bravery to experiment and
be expressive, mixing vintage with high street, and also the minimal approach
too. This is all a strong inspiration for me and whenever I visit London I'm
constantly walking around with my eyes wide open to see the 'street styles'
around me.Do you think that your
creations reflect the British fashion?Most definitely, particularly in reference to vintage finds and creations;
the tweeds, the English rose florals and the Liberty print cottons.Do you think that everyone can
wear a bow?I think anyone can wear a bow tie, but it's a matter of confidence. If
you're comfortable wearing it, then it will always look fabulous!
Do you create bows and ties
for special occasions?Yes. I have made special requests for black tie events, birthday/Christmas/anniversary
gifts and proms. My biggest requests are custom orders for weddings, which have
become more and more frequent as I've built my business. It's wonderful to be a
part of someone's big day, and to see the photos starring my products too!
That's a big honour.Which bow represents your
brand the most?A vintage velvet one because it's classic, but luxury and can have a fun
If you are as enthusiastic by her bows that we are, do not hesitate to
see the rest of her beautiful collection on My Green Bag Website because after
all, anyone can wear a bow tie!MGBxx

Day is near. Some people
love it, some
people dread it. And every year, the
same question again: what to get him/her? Sigh
no more my friends, here at My Green Bag we have got the perfect gift
ideas for you. Everyone needs a new bag and
we have so many for you to pick. What about you pick one of these
lovely bags and fill it with some lovely trinkets.
It would be a sort of
care package that you could use again. A beautiful bag, that you get
to keep, filled with flowers, chocolates
and lovely cards. Imagine what it would be
to be given a bag full of surprises...
celebrate, here at My Green Bag, we did a
special photo shoot with our gorgeous models, red balloons, and
beautiful bags. You are not ready for the cuteness you are about to
hope you enjoyed
seeing these pictures and that you are looking forward to Valentine's
Day. And remember these bags are great bags
for your other half, but if you are single, you also have to treat
you later, lovebirds.MGB xx

a long time and we thought it was about time to share with you an
interview in which she reveals a bit about her creative process. It
turns out she was really enthusiastic
hope you will find that as inspiring as we did. Let's now travel with
her all the way to the beautiful state of Colorado and begin the
Does your location (“the beautiful mountains of Colorado”)
influence your work in any ways?
from my workroom where I make all my handbags I have an awesome
view of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Being surrounded by
such beauty makes it easy for me to be reminded each day why I choose
to use Vegan and Eco-friendly supplies to make my handbags.
If you only had the choice of having one bag for the rest of your
life, what kind of bag would it be and why?
that's a hard question to answer. I love all the bags I create
in fact each time I make a new bag I have to tell myself that
its for inventory and I cant keep it. However, I love
the simplicity of a slouchy shoulder bag. I actually made one
for myself and I have carried that bag for over a year. Its easy
to sling over the shoulder, its big enough to hold all my essentials
and its black Vegan suede with a green camouflage
lining, what more could a woman want?
When you create your bags do you create them because you can imagine
yourself using them or do you picture your friends or family with
get ideas for my bags from so many things but ultimately I want
my bags to be useful and trendy. My craft is still evolving but I do
try to put myself in the end users shoes and think about what would
make the bag more useful to them. For instance, in the beginning I
only made a few bags with inner pockets, now all my bags have pockets
and some of my more recent bags are being made with tons of pocket
would be the perfect model to represent your brand?
think ultimately my own retail web site would be the best model but
for now I've just concentrated on getting my bags visible and
the best way to do that is to display them where I believe they will
get the most visibility.
which platform do you sell your products ?
currently sell my bags on Etsy, My Green Bag and on consignment in a
local Erie, CO shop. Occasionally, I will participate in local arts
and craft sales.
Do you have a physical shop or do you only sell online?
currently sell most of my bags online. However, I just placed a few
bags in a local Erie, CO shop. I'm hoping to place a few of my bags
in some local shop in Boulder, CO over the summer months.
You create a lot of bags with vegan leather, is that something
important to you?
and Eco-friendly material is important to me because of variety
but its more important to my targeted customers because of its
ecological impact. I don't personally have anything against the
use of genuine leather, I choose to use Vegan because I've
found that I can get a larger variety of colors, styles and
textures by using Vegan, cottons and synthetics interchangeably.
have different bags specific to certain celebrations such as
Valentines Day and Halloween, do you plan to do other similar
tried a few design ideas, some worked out well while others
didn't. I think targeting a special holiday might work for other
types of products but maybe not so well for handbags. I think
Valentines Day and Halloween might be the only two holidays that I
would ever create future bags for. Hearts aren't necessarily meant to
be used on Valentines Day and skulls and crossbones aren't
necessarily used for Halloween alone.
at My Green Bag, we love the idea and being trendy and practical.
Indeed, we want to be fashionable but we don't want to sacrifice the
fact of carrying all of our essentials with us. Luckily with Colorado
Craft Chic no more of that dilemma. You can go and check out these
bags on My Green Bag Website, after all who doesn't need a new
