Michelle Vale PavlovaLooking at the designers we know and love is all well and good, but sometimes, honestly, it gets a little boring. When you become familiar with a designer’s aesthetic, it’s hard to be surprised at new bags unless the brand decides to take their line in a new direction. As a result, I’m always look for a good indie designer that’s doing things a bit differently than the big guys, and I’ve found one in Michelle Vale. Take the Michelle Vale Pavolova, for instance. The piecing and seaming on the front flap are incredibly precise and different than anything I’ve seen as of late, and the size and shape seem perfect for me, since I don’t carry much, not to mention perfect for the flap bag trend without ripping off a certain other designer…

My favorite part of the bag, though, is something small. It comes with both silver and gold chain attachments so you can switch them out depending on the outfit and jewelry you’re wearing that day. Brilliant!!! Sometimes I shy away from wearing the bags that I have with gold hardware because I never wear gold jewelry, and this would be a fantastic way to solve that problem. Does anyone know where I can get a big silver chain for my Stam??? Buy through Michelle Vale Pavolova Handbags for $850.

    Yeah changing out chains is a fab idea.

    It’s a lovely flap bag, and swapping chains is a great detail – although I think mixing hardware is completely OK.
