scenery bags

i’m happy to say that i have a lot of talented friends. in fact, two of the accessories i am wearing in this post are the products of two of my favorite boss babes. while you are well-aware of my love for all things natalie borton (whose tassel earrings i’m sporting), today’s post highlights scenery bags, the brainchild of my sweet high school friend, jen wheeler kahn.

you may remember jen from this post a few years ago. since then she has gone on to start scenery bags, a company that creates gorgeous, one-of-a-kind bags from retired backdrops from various productions across the united states. furthermore, scenery donates a portion of the profits from each purchase to TDF’s introduction to theatre program -which provides middle and high school students with in-class workshops and the opportunity to attend a broadway or off-broadway performance. just this past march, scenery has also partnered with TDF’s accessibility for students program to fund their efforts of providing access for broadway and off-broadway performances to elementary and secondary school students who are blind or have low vision and/or deaf or hard of hearing. in addition to their philanthropic efforts, my favorite thing about scenery bags is that each one includes a label with the particulars of the backdrop’s origins. it’s a detail that i believe helps further connect the patron to the product.



aside from the fact that the bags are literally bringing good into the world (we could all use a little more good, right?), from a style standpoint, they are such a fun accent piece to any outfit -whether its casual or cocktail appropriate. while i could have easily paired this velvet clutch with a little black dress, pumps, and a fancy night on the town, i wanted to showcase how it could easily add a little pizzazz to an otherwise fairly simple look.  the mustard eyelet top is a recent purchase from madewell and while it does fit on the boxier side, it’s still long enough to tuck into these black overalls or front-tuck into your favorite high-waisted denim. at the risk of looking like a bumble bee, i wanted the black and mustard color palette to compliment the similar shades found in the tassel on the clutch. leopard flats and my golden harvest earrings tied everything together.
