Since months, I was looking for a basket bag. It's for me a must-have for summer.
Some friends bought the Celine basket bag or the Loewe basket bag.
I wanted to buy a bag with an hybrid function which can be a city bag and a beach bag. I'm following mainly journalists on Instagram. One of them have the bag I had decided to buy. The size was perfect and I love the type of bag. And it's a high-quality product. The brand's DNA is a fashionable reinterpretation of the traditional basket bag.
This Sophie bag is handmade in Ghana. The straw base is hand-weaved with elephant grass, taking like 2 or 3 days of work. Then, the bag is finished and assembled in their workshop, near Nantes, in France. The inside pouch is sewed by workers with disabilities working for ISTA.
This brand favoured both sustainability and high-quality at a just and fair price. And it's a perfect brand if you're sensitive and committed to sustainability.

It's finally 2019. So I wish you a wonderful new year full of joy, love, health, success. I hope you've been spoiled by your friends, your family or yourself. I was in Montreal for a week (from December 25th to December 31st) and the wind was blowing a lot, it was snowing and it was freezing cold. I think I won't go back to Canada during the winter season.
BUT I did some shopping (beauty products, stationery and fashion) and I had spent my whole time in the old Montreal because there was a lot of fashion stores and restaurants there. I went to the Montreal Eaton Center, mainly, near McGill Station.
I bought a Kate Spade agenda and a Kate Spade notebook. Here are the link where you can buy it :

Rose nudes Eyeshadows Palette Lise Watier : available here
This eyeshadows palette contains 12 new neutral shades which are highly pigmented, from matte to satin.
I decided to buy two pair of shoes. At the beginning, I wanted a new pair of UGG, burgundy colored but they weren't available in store. BUT, something caught my eyes : a beautiful pair of 6-inch premium waterproof Timberland boots, with burgundy satin collar. Wonderful ! So I decided to buy it.
And I also bought a pair of boots in a kind of fashion concept-store located in the old Montreal "Meli Melo Store". If you're from Montreal, maybe you know that store !
