Oh-So-Pretty, Retro-Inspired Purses from Bagatelles&co

I’m a big believer that all you need is the right accessories to take your outfit from cute to Wowza! – an interesting headpiece, a killer pair of heels, a sentimental cocktail ring, or, in the case of Bagatelles&co, a retro-inspired purse.

Designed by a French textile designer living in London, Bagatelle’s line is handmade from vintage silks, tie silk and brocade remnant so each edition is limited, making for a unique bridesmaid gift or bridal purse that not everyone else will be sporting. And Rym will further personalize the purses with custom messages sewn in (think your wedding date, a sweet message to your bridesmaid, or even, just the word ‘love’).

Her Day in the Countryside clutch would be perfect for bridesmaids’ dresses, but wouldn’t it also be a gorgeous pop of color with a shorter beach dresses?

And, I love, love, love all of these for your bridesmaids. I started out crushing on the Bold Peacock because it could be so dramatic if paired with a red dress, but now I’m obsessing over the Black and White Liberty Floral because it’s ultra-romantic and has that 20s vibe that’s so hot right now.

Or how about her Golden Daisy Fifi for a purse that’s a bit more subtle and traditionally wedding-esque?

She has more fabric options and styles over on her site, plus is constantly updating it with new versions (one even went up while I was finishing this up!).
