A friend recently pointed us in the direction of Jill Serra, and we thought you might be interested as well. She makes tote bags, two of which have been shown in major magazines. There are four in total, the Misha Tote, the Salome Tote, the Birdgirl Tote (our favorite), and the Flora Tote. Each is only $35 and all are hand-made. She also sells art prints. Unfortunately, the site is set up so we can't link to individual items, but each is easy to find.

Today we are combining our normal shirt post with our Accessory Friday post. We recently discovered Lucha Workshop, and we really like their stuff. Their tees come in both a unisex and a women's variety as well as in different colors. All the tees are also hand-screened on American Apparel tees. Some of our favorites include Cloe, Heart, Stars, and Minty. They also have a really funny blog you might want to look at.
Lucha Workship also sells handmade bags. Some of the designs are the same as their t-shirt designs, while others are exclusively for the bags. The Shirt Snob's favorite ones include the Bunny bag, the Spinky bag, the Bluebird Bag, and the Pink Cloud Wallet. Also, if you like something a little weirder, check out their plush bags.

Happy Friday! Today for Accessory Friday, we are going to look at the purses from Queen Bee Creations. As all our faithful readers know, the Shirt Snob certainly has a love for bags. These ones are definitely ones that we really want. There are four bags, the Poppy Tote, the Poppy Truckette, the Queen Bee Coin Purse, and the Twig Diaper Tote (which we're sure you all know by now can be used by anyone who needs a bag with a lot of pockets). They are all made of waterproof vinyl, and they are all handmade. All of these bags are available at Elsewares, an independent art and design shop that has loads are great shirts, accessories, and more. For other great designs by Queen Bee, they have a website as well.

For Accessory Friday, we are yet again showing you some jewelry. We know, we do jewelry all the time, but we really like this company. It's very reasonably priced too. Peggy Li Creations sells earrings, necklaces, bracelets, an urges and splurges section for pricer items, and limited edition pieces in both gold and silver. We really like the Spanish Moss Jade Earrings, the Pink Chocolate Necklace, and the Vintage Filagree Leaf Earrings.

The Shirt Snob really hopes we aren't doing too many baby items for our Accessory Fridays. We're trying hard not to, but we keep stumbling onto some great items. This one, although technically for a mom, could really be used by any woman (laptop bag maybe?). Susanne Maddux makes diaper bags. However, these don't seem to be just any diaper bags, they seem to be the supreme diaper bags. They are large (17x12x5 inches), have three cargo pockets, a large side pocket for a changing pad and diapers, metalic snap closures, a nylon interior, water resistant nylon canvas on the exterior, large interior zipper and side pockets, a cell phone pocket, an interior bottle holder, metal feet on the bottom, and even a changing pad is included. This is a pretty good diaper bag so far, but we also think it's a very handsome bag. It has a clean look, not too much color so you can still try to match it to your wardrobe. It is available in six colors, our favorites being chocolate & cream with sky blue lining and classic black on black with blush pink lining. Susanne Maddux is a mother, and that is obvious. Too many diaper bags are made to look cute but aren't that great to actually use. They can be too small, not washable, or too heavy. This one seems just right!

Do you all remember way back last July when we wrote about Holy Aiken bags? Well, we just found out that all their in stock merchandise is 25% off until July 9. We absolutely adore her bags and highly suggest you go check them out.
Frosting is yet another company having a Fourth of July sale right now. All things red, white, and blue are 10% off when using the code "fireworx" at checkout.

For Accessory Friday this week, we're all about Pretty Girls Wear Pearls. We've seen this website suddenly on a few other blogs we read, and we like it enough to share with you in case you haven't seen it yet. There are two main collections, Modern Elegance and Bohemian Elegance, and not all the items have pearls (although plenty do!). We really like the Stars and Moon Bracelet, the Sweet Necklace, the Sexy Earrings, the Joyous Earrings and the Grapevine Set. The prices are great (we don't recall seeing anything outside of the sets above $50), so you can easily buy what you like without worrying at all about breaking the bank. Our only wish is that the pictures were taken with better macro so we could see the close up pictures better. But we can let this go since we want so much from them.

For this week's Accessory Friday, we are going to show you one of our favorite things in this world, pajamas. These pjs by Body Linens are great because you can choose your thread count. They come in 300, 500, and 800 thread counts, obviously getting more expensive the higher up you go. Besides that, you can also get some of their pjs monogrammed. There are four choices for women, The Classic, The Nighty, Cami/Capri, and Melon Stripe PJ. The first three all have the signature pink ruffle, the last obviously having a stripe instead. These pajamas seem to be very high quality, made of Egyptian cotton with french seams, mother of pearl buttons, and no tags. They also make mens pajamas as well. We think this would be a great gift for anyone as well as a wonderful way to treat yourself.
