This is a beautiful handmade item that has two comfortable leather handles. I love the colours on it and it looks great. It’s very spacious and practical. It’s made by hand in Kenya using Masai beadwork on canvas and leather. The interior is a very colorful Kenyan Kanga, 100% cotton fabric, with an inside pocket.  It would look fabulous with just about any outfit and you can also take it with you for short day trips.

This Handmade Vintage Cow Head Backpack is pretty awesome. It’s made from full grain leather and fabric lining. This will definitely make you stand out from the crowd because I can almost guarantee you that no one else within your circle will have one of these.

MeetIDEA1

The unique and eye-catching backpack has a cool cow head shape. It’s made from durable fabric and is great for a wide variety of uses. What’s great about this backpack is that it’s not super bulky like many of them are. It’s practical and it will definitely be a head-turner.

2. Bionic Design Beetle Backpack

I have to say that I’ve never seen anything like this before. This unique backpack was inspired by the beetle’s biomechanics. It has tons of storage and looks super cool.

MeetIDEA2

What’s great is that it’s also handmade and is made of full-grain leather. It features adjustable shoulder straps and is comfortable to wear.

I think it’s pretty awesome. If you want to wear something that no one else has, then this is it. Many people just wear the exact same thing as everyone else and that’s kind of boring. Therefore, spicing things up a bit with items from MeetIDEA is a great way to show the world your unique style.

Another thing…both of those items are currently on sale! 🙂

Steven Alexander Luxury Golf Shoes are made for golfers who enjoy the sensation of wearing authentic, unique, personalized footwear, handcrafted by Italian masters. These shoes are definitely not for the average golfer.

What’s even more awesome about Steven Alexander is that you can either order one of the existing designs, or you can create and order your own design of golf shoes that suit your personal style. That way you can rest assured knowing that no one else on the golf course will have the same shoes as you.

Steven Alexander shoes are made of premium quality leathers  in order to ensure the shoes breathe and remain waterproof for many years. In addition, they are very light and very comfortable to wear. You can be a winner on the golf course and in style too. Unlike many other golf shoes that last a few seasons, these will last you a very long time. They are very durable, yet fashionable.

Steven Alexander is a partnership with Italian shoe Master Mr. Raimondi, who has been crafting shoes by hand for three generations. Some of the brands that he has worked with include: D&G, Prada, and Versace, as well as many others.

Mr. Raimondi takes pride in producing quality work that he can be proud of and that the customer can be extremely happy with. His grandfather originally built the company and he personally delivered the handcrafted shoes to the consumers.

Today Mr Raimondi continues to personally inspect and approve each pair of shoes before it is sent to the customer. His dedication to quality and service is paramount, and remains the foundation of the Raimondi brand.

One Tribe Apparel takes pride in bringing the unique elements of Thailand’s culture to the rest of the world. I always feel artistically inspired whenever I see unique clothing articles. Fashion is an art and is the best way to express yourself.

If you are looking to own a pair of awesome Thai Harem Pants, then you should definitely check out what One Tribe Apparel has to offer.

ThaiHaremPants

Above: This is definitely my favorite colour. I LOVE them!

Thai harem pants for women can be a perfect fit whether you’re starting your day with an early yoga session or ending your night with dancing. You may even find that they suit you best while relaxing next to a crackling fire or laying out in a hammock under the hot sun.

HaremPants1

Above: Here is another beautiful pair of Thai Harem Pants.

These pants are versatile, fashionable and will truly set you apart from other people. You don’t want to be caught wearing the same thing as everyone else is wearing, which is why you should check out One Tribe Apparel.

I LOVE the colours on them and the patterns. Honestly, I have not seen those too often here in North America but I would love to see more of that.

They look and feel super comfortable, unlike the skinny jeans that we see people wearing here. Let me just say that I would much rather wear Thai Harem Pants than skinny jeans. I LOVE the fact that you can move freely in them. 🙂

Sometimes, I find that North American clothing is not made with the same thoughtfulness as the more traditional stuff that you would get from Southeast Asia. I love to see diversity, individuality and uniqueness.

Not only that, but I feel like the listed price, $39 US is great. If you are looking to add something great to your closet, then it might as well be Thai Harem Pants.

HAPPY SHOPPING!

The zipper at the back makes this piece stand out from the crowd. It’s a very unique element in this piece.

Just like many of the other Bikini Luxe pieces, this blouse is very versatile and can be worn in different ways depending on your personal style and preference.

It can be yours for just $26, which is a steal compared to what you would pay for a piece of similar quality at another store.
