Splurgeworthy! The New IT Bags From Amsterdam
Meet Hester van Eeghen, designer of to-die-for luxury bags. PLUS: 15% off your splurge!
All my girls know that as your Cyber Main Gay, I take the subject of accessories very seriously. They can make or break any look. Especially when it comes to hand bags and totes — business or casual. I’m always on the hunt for the latest and greatest in work bags because so many of the accessories I see for women in the work place look … well … like a boring man should be carrying them. Many of my clients work in the legal profession, so I’ve had to find options that are beautiful and functional, saying “confidence and style” without being over the top. Fortunately for me, I have global girlfriends! My friend Debbie Ruth, whom I met through author and screen writer Tracey Jackson, introduced me to the new IT bags that are just beyond delicious.
Ladies! Meet Hester van Eeghen! The hot accessory guru from Amsterdam!
Here’s the Tea and Back Story! About seven years ago, Debbie stayed in a small, chic hotel in Amsterdam, whose yummy gift shop carries Hester’s bags. Debbie is always on the hunt for great bags, especially for work and voila! She found Hester! Needless to say, Debbie either made a return trip once a year or had traveling friends stop in Amsterdam to bring her the latest and greatest.
Fast forward — like so many successful women I know, Debbie knew that her love of these bags was also her business dream of a lifetime! Debbie is now working with Hester to make these bags available in the US!
