What's In My Handbag ft. Matt and Nat

It's been ages (or more like a year) since I've written my last fashion post, so I decided that instead of just sharing pictures, I'd also film what I keep inside my handbag for you to see! I've been on the hunt for a new handbag since the one I've been wearing for the last couple of years is literally falling apart, and I've had my eyes on the brand Matt & Nat for a while now. I love that they are designed in Montreal and that all of their bags are made with vegan leather using recycled nylon, and that the interior lining is made of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Fun fact: I work in retail for an accessory brand that specializes in handbags (and no, not for Matt & Nat - I wish!), so handling bags for hours on end during my shifts has taught me how to tell if a bag is well-made. This one is by far one of the nicest, high-quality bags I have come across. It is called the 'Alter' Tote Bag and it is part of their Vintage Collection. I went for the shade 'Caramel', and I just love it! If you need a new bag, I would highly recommend you check out Matt & Nat's website. They have so many styles and colours to choose from - I might already have my eyes on a few other models!
