A Liebeskind Kind of Christmas!

This might become dangerous — the combo of my latest new addiction to Berlin-based Liebeskind bags and their precariously close proximity at Lafayette and Prince Streets!

It's going to be a Liebeskind kind of Christmas!

Already at our house this holiday season, it’s looking a lot like a Liebeskind kind of Christmas. Just check out that big, beautiful bag, above.

My amazing new friend Nathalie, who recently took over as President of Liebeskind’s North American arm, turned me on to the lovely leather treats. And I haven’t looked back yet.

It’s quite fitting that Liebeskind means “love child” in German. I have already purchased a bag for P to give me for Christmas (the camouflage laptop bag that’s residing in the big, beautiful gift bag, above). I got the adorable triple zippered black Kara bag to gift to my mama (shhhhh!!! don’t tell her!). Then, I had to have one for myself. There. I am now the mother of two very beloved love children!

I highly recommend you head down to 270 Lafayette to do  a little holiday shopping for yourself (many are on sale, too). After all…think of the (love) children!
