Erin Templeton Bags

June 1, 2010

As you might have noticed, I am a big bag person. I adore shoes like any other self-respecting girl, but my true love affair will always and forever more be with handbags.

The affair started at a frighteningly young age. When I was still a braces-wearing, hunched-over adolescent, my main obsession was with Erin Templeton bags.

Templeton’s famous Hobo bag in gold

I used to go down to Dream, a Vancouver boutique featuring local designers, and drool over Templeton’s soft, perfectly worn-in hobos. I saved up my babysitting money (which was not the most reliable source of income as I have never been a “kids person” and never held onto those jobs for long…) and bought the purple hobo pictured below. I still love it and wear it all the time, so my bag is a testament in itself to the quality of Templeton’s bags!

If you can’t make it down to Vancouver, you can shop Erin Templeton online here.
