Fall approacheth, ladies. Monday is October 1. Most of us can get away with summer-wear and behaviour in September, because it's still warm (even hot - it was over 90 here yesterday), muggy, and the nights luxuriously comfortable enough that we can sleep with the windows open and just a sheet on the bed.
Sadly, this will not last much longer. I give us another week or so of this, then a cold snap, then Indian summer, then - winter. *sigh*
While I personally bemoan summer's desertion, there are benefits - like the rich colours and patterns fashion adopts from nature. This reversible tote, for instance: it's made of a deep chocolate canvas, and hand-screen printed with goldenrod-toned flowers on one side and starbursts on the other. Turquoise topstitching lends a little extra punch (fall needn't mean drab, after all), and the cut of this bag is wonderful - you'll be able to wear it over your shoulder, even over a jacket, while you lug a pumpkin or apples and cider up to the cash register.
The bag is, again, reversible, so you can wear whichever print catches your fancy, and it's a good-sized tote, too, at 11.5 inches wide and 14 inches tall. $45 and handmade with love by Kaybu, where you'll find several other totes, pretty reversible headbands, and screen-printed tees.
