Hope you all enjoyed this spring weekend! It was hot and very much like summer here in LA and I was very excited to be out and about in lighter clothing and my new Vivian bag from Oliver Bilou. I discovered OB online and immediately fell in love with their products–they offer five unique handbags each with a very distinct character and style. I have to admit, I had a hard time picking between the Vivian and the Taylor and still have my eye on the latter, as the former is now in my hands! 😉
Can we talk about Vivian’s unique charm? It’s light grey color, beautiful dome shape and that braided trim running along its front just called out my name–sophisticated with an EDGE (no pun intended)! But Vivian is not going to only be your “arm candy”–it is just as functional as it is beautiful! The bag looks compact, however it is pretty roomy and held my wallet, sunglasses, a water bottle, my phone (there is a special compartment for it), keys (a built-in key chain), and I could have loaded it even further–very impressive!
There also is a back zipped pocket you can access from the outside of the bag, and the main compartment has dual zips for easy use, making this bag perfect for travel or running around town.
The gold hardware adds to the classy bag and gives you a tone for your jewelry selection. Gold is incorporated in the handle bar, the metal feet, and key chain, the zippers, and even the inspirational quote one would discover once they open their Oliver Bilou bag.
Vivian is made from textured vegan leather with makes it’s light color easy to care for–just wipe it out with a wet nap and it is as good as new.
I was also very impressed by the packaging of this bag–it comes in a stylish black box, complete with a dust bag and all hardware carefully wrapped to insure a pristine look–it would make any girl smile and be a great present delivered to someone you want to surprise!
Another perk is that Vivian looks perfectly with business attire as well as a casual weekend look. This bag is also FEEL GOOD as a portion of the proceeds from each handbag purchased goes towards enriching a child’s life.
