_ shop & support local _

Ok so first lets just put it out there just in case you didn’t know, I. love. a. good. handbag! I would pick a handbag before I would buy an item of clothing. At one point it got a little insane but with going into a simpler life, its been a bit easier to say no.

But with that being said, I love to support local shops as well and let me just tell you,  Virginia Beach is full of them. Whether it be a jewelry shop, home decor, or fashion – they are everywhere! I love it! My husband may not like it very much but he gets over it.

I got to play around with a few things from a local artist, Ashton Keely, and it was perfect in every way! Ashton is so talented and her hand-crafted and custom leather goods are out of this world. If you love to support local business’ I would highly suggest checking her out on Facebook  and also her Etsy shop @ AshtonKeely

The simplicity of her work is absolutely stunning! I love how she pays close attention to every detail with each of her pieces – from the earrings, to the bracelets and then finished off with the custom leather handbag, every piece is beautiful in its own way!
