I’m going to be honest here, I don’t think I ever heard the name Camila Alves until she started dating Matthew McConaughey. So, when Megs recently mentioned that Alves has her own line of handbags, I was instantly intrigued. Thankfully, the internet makes information gathering so easy (really, what would we do with out it?!?!?!) that within a couple searches, I found out quite a bit. Of course, I looked at the handbags as soon as I finished admiring the many Matthew McConaughey images. Hey, can you blame me? The Muxo line, which means “Goddess of the Water”, by Alves does have a certain hippie vibe; a hippie vibe for those who can afford to drop big bucks. Honestly, I’ve been told for years that I am a tad hippie-esque, and I have to say, I find it hard to believe many of my day to day fellow hippies would drop this kind of cash for any of her bags. Even if you just like the hippie look, what do you think of her bags?
Out of the bags I looked at, the Camila Hobo (image at the top of this post) was the only one I could *maybe* see myself carrying. Of course, the material is beautiful and the detail is note-worthy. I do like the distressed croc-embossed leather with drawstring detail and topstitching. Her other bags use similar material and have a similar feel while offering different shapes, colors, designs, and details. The bags I looked at run anywhere from about $600 to over $1,000. I understand the material being used and the craftmanship drives the price up, but personally, I don’t really like any of the bags enough to buy them. But, if you have this kind of money to spend and say you want to buy the Camila Hobo, you can do so through Shopbop for $1,056.00.
