Etsy Love: Rachel Elise

It's been a while since I've talked about other Etsy shops, but as I've acquired a couple of things lately, I figured now would be a good time to talk about one of my absolute favorite shops: Rachel Elise.

Rachel is actually one of my good friends. The first time I met Rachel, she was sewing bags. A mutual friend brought me over to her dorm room one night back in 2008, and the entire time I was there, she was socializing while sewing bags.

Since then, her business has grown to a full-time endeavor, and she is very good at what she does. She has a knack for combining different fabrics into interesting and unique bags. As of this past Thursday, there are five Rachel Elise bags in my home (one is Jose's laptop bag).

This is my most recent bag that I bought from Rachel this past week and I am in love with it. This is her Satchel, which is my favorite.

 All of the Rachel Elise bags I've bought have been really sturdy and great quality, which is why I haven't bought a purse from anywhere else since I got my first Rachel Elise bag.

You can visit Rachel Elise at these places:
