Friends, in less than ONE WEEK, the live action Beauty and the Beast comes out in theaters. Do you know how excited I am? Disney is MY JAM! All things Disney. And I've been waiting for this movie to come out so long I lost count.
Disney kind of consumes my life, but in a good way. My kitchen is essentially all Disney, I've got Disney accessories out the wazoo, pens, journals, notebooks, clothes.. I mean you name it I have it. But like, I can always have more! I like to wear my passions for all to see. I'm not ashamed of who I am. So when I saw Danielle Nicole was released a limited edition classic Beauty and the Beast bag collection, I was in there like swimwear.
Danielle Nicole has a decent selection of Disney bags in general. They're not cheap, mind you, but they are damn cute. They're mainly clutches and crossbody bags, so generally small. I bought a small Beast clutch off Amazon a few months ago for a decent price with an Amazon gift card I got for Christmas. It's pretty much amazing. Here's a photo of it:
While this isn't technically the bag I was showing you, I mean.. LOOK AT IT! Isn't it THE CUTEST?! Look at his fur! I know what you're thinking, "Ash, you said fur!" Fear not, my compassionate friends, because all of Danielle Nicole's handbags are VEGAN! You can rock your love of Disney in style knowing no animals were harmed in the making of it!
This is her recent Beauty and the Beast collection:
The hardest part was deciding which bag I wanted. All of them was not the option, although it's the option I wanted. I went back and forth between the Mrs. Potts and Chip crossbody and the Tale As Old As Time. I ended up buying this one:
I debated hard because the Mrs. Potts and Chip one is a-damn-dorable. But the Tale as Old as Time crossbody won my heart. I love vintage styles. Just love them. And the book style clutch was right up my alley. The flowers were beautiful, and the stitching is exquisite. The design is so pretty! I'm not typically a fan of of gold, but it really adds to the overall style of this bag and it works really well. It's a decent size too, the biggest of the four options she had, which was the deciding factor in me choosing it.
I typically only carry a small bag with me when I'm running places and save my big bag for work. Even when I'm running errands, I still feel the need to take too much stuff with me. I usually carry: my Jetoy card holder, my lip balm, small tube of hand lotion, phone, medicine (just in case, I'm a worry wart), keys, and whatever else I feel like I may need during that trip. This bag allows me to carry all of that and a little more if I need it. It opens wide too, so you'll be surprised at what you can fit in there. The chain is a decent length, not too long or too short. I like that there's a strap of material on the chain too, for comfort. And I always prefer zip closure since I just feel it's more secure.
I've got entirely too many small bags, I mean like an embarrassingly large amount. But this is the one that I keep going to over and over. So much that I just leave it with my big bag so I can take from the big bag what I need in my small bag when I run out. I love it!
I truly can't recommend these bags enough. She's got other Disney ones too (she just releases two Little Mermaid bags and I can't even look at them because I'm too tempted to buy them lol) and regular bags if Disney isn't your thing. Check out her website, she also sells them on Macy's website too. And keep an eye on Amazon for her bags too, which you can get for cheaper sometimes. I got my Beast clutch I think for like $20 cheaper. Sometimes it's just a couple bucks but every penny counts! Be sure to check them out!
