I don’t know about you, but no matter how much I try and organize my handbag, I am always digging around for what I need. Granted, I carry around a bag that is large enough to carry a small child…ok, I’m exaggerating, but I could probably fit a couple of kittens pretty easily. Anyway, the point is that it is really annoying to never be able to find what I am looking for, and really, do I need a handbag that is so large? Well I have the answer my friends, let me introduce you to Hipsters for Sisters a family owned, made in the U.S.A. brand that makes compact, hand-free vegan bags.
I love the idea of simplifying one’s life and reducing the amount of “stuff” that we all have and carry around with us. The belt bag from Hipsters for Sisters is just the remedy. Started in 2012 in an effort to “liberate women from their baggage”, Hipsters for Sisters creates fashionable belt bags that are designed to accommodate just the essentials. In addition to making good looking bags, this company also believes in doing good. All of their bags are vegan and are produced locally and ethically right in sunny Los Angeles. Hipsters for Sisters takes in one step further on the “doing good” scale and give 5% of the purchase priced of every bag sold online to organizations that “…liberate and empower women and honor our sacred stewardship of the earth and all of its creatures”. Me likey.
So you may be thinking belt bag = fanny pack. No way Jose. These bags are not your mom’s tacky fanny pack from the 80’s. These bags are chic, simple and sophisticated. Take a look!
The Convertible Belt Bag is a lovely little bag that can be worn with the belt around your hips or with the chain as a cross body. If you are so inclined you could use neither and just use it as a chic clutch. This bag comes in several different colors and fabrications. The one featured below is made from naturally sustainable hemp.
If you are feeling a bit sassy, I would recommend the Fringe Belt Bag. With fabulous fringe detailing, this is Hipsters for Sisters’ largest belt bag. It comes with a matching wallet and the adjustable strap allows you to wear it as both a cross body or around the waist. Made from vegan ultra suede, the Fringe Belt Bag comes in nude, black and mulberry (featured below).
The Pocket Bum Bag is one of my favorite Hipster for Sisters’ bags. With an adjustable belt, convenient pockets and zippers, this bag makes keeping organized look good. Available in a wide variety of fabrications, colors and patterns, you could have a Bum Bag to coordinate with every outfit. Below is the Pocket Bum Bag in leopard…meow!
So if you want to make a move to simplify your life, a great place to start if with everyday things like your handbag. So make the plunge, free up your hands and your mind with a belt bag from Hipsters for Sisters. And, if you purchase a bag through today, Earth Day (April 22nd), the 5% will be donated to the Rainforest Trust, so one bag saves one acre. What more motivation do you need?
