How cute is this convertible cork clutch! You may recognize it from my holiday handbag capsule, which I posted last week. I always love owning bags which have more than one purpose in life. The Jord Haifa has exactly that. It is a dressy clutch and it is also a dressy cross body bag. Or, if you are feeling a little disco, you can wear it on your shoulder and rock the long strap shoulder strap look which was hotter than hot in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s. This is great news because it means the Jord Haifa can be worn three ways! Love that!

One of the big movements in the fashion industry right now is sustainability. Fashion designers and brands are working hard to make their products more sustainable and environmentally friendly. What I love about Jord’s handbags is that they are made from cork; making them inherently sustainable and vegan. It feels good to wear something I know is sustainable, and not damaging to the environment.

What fits inside the Jord Haifa cross body bag

It’s the ideal size inside. In addition to a zipper pouch and credit card slots, I can fit my full-size wallet, lipstick, keys, and iPhone inside the Jord Haifa. This makes it very easy to wear since I don’t have to pair down my purse essentials when I leave the house. I can throw what I need inside, and I am ready to leave the house! Love that!

The Jord Haifa cross body bag also offers luxurious design details. I love the gold flecks on the black cork, and high quality hardware. In addition, the red, faux suede lining is soft and beautiful. I love how everything works together to create a bag which looks much, much more expensive than $149! I really would add numbers to that price! It’s an amazing value.

Attention to details

The details on the Jord Haifa are absolutely amazing, and high quality. The clasp has a lock on it which snaps into place, making the bag secure yet still easy to get into. The two little knobs push together and voila! the clasp opens, allowing you access to the interior of the bag. Thankfully it’s tricky enough to keep pick-pocking fingers out of the bag. Love!

There is a strong, gold chain strap which is detachable that comes with the Jord Haifa cross body clutch. It has easy-to-snap-on clasps which go underneath the exterior flap; so the loops are hidden. This is a really luxurious feature. The straps adds additional luxury to the bag which adds security when you are wearing it hands free. I love how it looks with the strap!

Loving this bag! I hope you do too. It would make a great holiday bag, as well as gift for the handbag fan on your holiday list!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cork for spring 2012

Cork is one of the hottest fabrications found on accessories for the spring 2012 season. Eco-chic cork is found mainly on shoes for the spring 2012 season, but the innovative fabrication can also be found on handbags, jewelry and even as trim on belts and apparel.

Cork graced the runways in New York, Paris, Milan and London last fall when designers showed off their new spring 2012 collections. These cork designs have taken store shelves by storm and as the weather warms up, they will soon overtake the streets. Designers such as Prada and Stella McCartney are showing cork for the spring 2012 season, and many moderate priced brands are following suit with cork collections of their own for spring.

Normally found used for stoppers on wine bottles, or for noteboards, cork has become an innovative material over the past few decades. Builders use cork for insulation in homes and it has also been used as chic floor and wall tiles. Cork originates from the “Cork Oak” tree and is considered a renewable resource; making it an eco-chic fabrication, love it! What makes cork fabulous is that it is made from the bark of the Cork Oak tree, therefore, the tree does not need to be cut down. The bark regrows, which is why cork is a renewable resource and eco-chic!

Cork is definitely one of the hottest ways to update your wardrobe for spring 2012. Not only is cork a renewable resource, making it eco-chic, the material offers texture and a natural vibe which is refreshing for the warm weather months. Look for both casual and dressy options this season when it comes to cork shoes, handbags and apparel.

We scoured the web and put together a few items through the Polyvore set below to help you get started on your cork shopping for spring 2012. Hope you love it! Happy shopping and stay fabulous
