Put A Bird On It

So, I mentioned this tote bag earlier and asked for everyone's opinions on which design to choose and now it is a reality. Eep! I partnered with Promotes.Me to produce the bird tote. It's wonderfully exciting to carry around a bag featuring some of my doodles. I chose the birds since several people said they felt uncomfortable carrying a bag with a human face on it (hopefully I'll make another tote one day for people who liked the other designs better). I'm very happy with how the design translated into a tote and the tote itself is the perfect size and quite sturdy (10 oz cotton canvas). I couldn't resist debuting the tote with a new favorite dress of mine. It's from Zara and Noel of The Owls Are Not What They Seem bought it for me since there are no Zaras here in Virginia (it's good to have friends in other states). It was a tad too big and I didn't like how a shoulder detail on it looked on me, so it has undergone a number of alterations (taking in the sides, shortening the sleeves, raising the shoulders), but now is pretty much perfect.
If you are interested in a tote, they're available right now for pre-order: $20 and free shipping (domestically, unfortunately! we will calculate international orders individually).

  1. What a gorgeous bag! I just might have to buy one...

    And I know what you mean about not having certain stores in Virginia - where I live, there are pretty much *zero* decent stores, so I end up buying everything either online, or from Kohl's! Which is okay, but I wish there was some variety!

  22. The red dress looks perfect with leopard heels.

  23. I think you should have stuck with your gut, and chosen the human faces. Your birds are wonderful, but a human face would have been more fresh. :-)

  24. @FaceySarah, honestly, no gut either way on this one. I like both designs equally & considering I have bird tattoos, the bird design seemed suitable. :)

  33. Yeah I tried this dress on but it was so short on me, like indecently short. It looks really cute on you though!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have that red dress too! I don't like the shoulder details much so I might follow suit and remove it so it looks less military. It looks lovely on you, can't imagine a world without Zara now!

  35. I like the flared skirt look! almost reminds me of lil orphan annie ;)

  38. the doodles on the bag suit what i perceive to be your personality. from what i have imagined at least lol.

    the dress looks amazing on you. i love the swingy skirt on it

  39. That dress really is perfect! I always see great Zara stuff online, but when I went up to Chicago over spring break and actually shopped in store, I was really disappointed. Everything cute either looked really strange on or was only left in a size XL. :/
