It's my favorite time of year! Not only because of the holidays but because of the annual Stephanie Johnson Friends and Family Sale! If you were a reader of Have Your Cake, I'm sure you already know I have quite the obsession for all things Stephanie Johnson (raving past posts here and here). Her cosmetic bags and pouches are the chicest and most durable I've ever come across and each new collection impresses me more than the last- the latest patterns being no exception.
This is an Instagram shot I snapped of my Katie Folding Clutch in Rodeo Gold. The metallic material is absolutely gorgeous and the bag easily doubles as a case for cosmetics and chargers when you're traveling.
I was ecstatic to see they'd brought back this pattern in a few new colors- this one is the jewelry roll in Bollywood Grey (of which I also own the Gidget Brush Case). It's the third jewelry roll I've owned and the others pale in comparison. It's been the only one I've been able to find with clear pouches (who wants to dig through every pocket for what they're looking for?) and also has a removable middle pouch (the round zip case you see holding my watches in the photos).
Both of these SJ bags are perfect examples of why I'm so crazy about this brand- everything is extremely well made (the bags I've owned for years and use constantly- like my iPad case, still look as gorgeous as they day I got them) and are so versatile and functional.
If you haven't ever owned any SJ bags, you should definitely check the site out now during their great 40% off sale (with code 'sjfriends' through December 12) or if you're already an addict like I am, stock up on favorite bags in new patterns or gifts for co-workers or girlfriends! I put a cute little Mini Pouch in each of my cousin's stockings last year and they loved them!
Here are some of the new patterns I'm lusting after:
Mini Pouch in Mulholland Drive Gold (I use these little bags to stash lip products and sunglasses in my purse)
Medium Flat Pouch in Sun Valley Blue (I have this same bag in a pink pattern that's great for use as a clutch or holding my e-reader)
ML Traveler in Cannes (really hoping this is under the tree for me this year- look at that hot pink lining!)
Do you own any Stephanie Johnson? Are you shopping the F&F sale? Let me know what you're picking up, I'm having trouble deciding on what I absolutely cannot live without this time around!
