This summer, I’ve been traveling a lot. After my very first trip back in June, I knew that some updates were in order… immediately. My weekend duffel bag was euphemistically termed “shabby-chic” (emphasis on the shabby) and my cosmetic bags were even worse! So, I turned in my duffel for a smart mock-croc overnight bag and upgraded my cosmetic pouches to brand new, sassy Jessie Steele cosmetic bags.
Jessie Steele cosmetic bags are just the latest extension of the firm’s line of vintage-inspired aprons, pajamas, and robes. And, all of the new pieces retain that distinctive Jessie Steele flair. For me, it’s those fun patterns – cabbage roses, cupcakes, gingham – that make the line so desirable.
The cosmetic bags include classic quilted patterns, over-the-top floral, and more. One of my favorites is the Cream and Black Polka Dot (pictured above). The whimsical print is accented with pink piping and a grosgrain bow at the zipper. The cosmetic bags are padded with 100% cotton and lined with a non-toxic, “wipe clean” EVA coating.
This pattern comes in three sizes: Cosmetic Bag, $15.00; Petite Cosmetic Bag, $17.00; and Generous Cosmetic Bag, $22.00. You can even purchase a gift set of three bags in different sizes (so useful for trips) for only $16.00!
In addition to perky polka dots, I also love the Cream and Black Bouquet Damask 3-Piece Gift Set (shown at right). With the holidays fast approaching (yes, I am already thinking Christmas) this set would be a great gift for the fashionistas on your list. The set features a small, medium, and large cosmetic bag in the elegant yet simple Cream and Black Bouquet Damask print, accented with a pink zipper and grosgrain bow. These bags are also padded with 100% cotton and lined with a non-toxic, “wipe clean” EVA coating. Retail: $26.00
The Jessie Steele line is carried by over 3,000 stores in more than 27 countries, and has been featured in national magazines — from Better Homes and Gardens to Vogue. Also, be sure to check out the other new Jessie Steele accessories for Fall such as adorable purse charms, must-have patterned iPhone cases, scarves and more!
