Every once in a while, I get really passionate about an idea, a product, or a company. Abbey Lou Bags has won my heart for a handful of reasons.
Where to begin? First off, the OBVIOUS: their bags are gorgeous. I have had a lot of bags/purses in my day, and I can honestly say, the bag they sent me, is quite possibly my favorite one. Ever. Now that is really saying something. ;) I was so impressed by the size, ease of access, quality, and overall design. When I laid eyes on this beauty, I decided it would be the perfect diaper bag. Then I decided no, this would be the perfect bag for church, to carry all my kid stuff, scriptures, etc. Then I thought, no, no. This would be the perfect carry-on bag for the airplane, to carry my iPad, books, and snacks. After I decided it was the all around perfect bag for me, I learned Abbey Lou bags were originally designed for students. Sheesh. Basically, these bags are perfect for just about anyone.
Another reason I fell in love: This isn’t just another bag company. This is a mother/ teenage-daughter company. Isn’t that beautiful? But wait, it gets even better. There is a story behind this company. Abbey’s mom has always taught her children to embrace their uniqueness and “be yourself.” Abbey wanted a school bag that was adorable and unique, while Mom wanted something that was functional and sturdy. Together they started imagining the perfect bag that would meet all these criteria. Mom sketched out a few designs and pushed it aside. There is a saying: “If it’s still in your mind, it’s worth taking the risk.” Remembering this, and taking a leap of faith, the mother-daughter company was born.
Now that you are drooling all over your keyboard, here are a few ways to get one of your own.
