Do you know about Two Bar West? Sisters Laurie and Stacy McFadin, fifth generation Texans, make these studded and fringed handbags out of their studio in Sabinal, just south of San Antonio.One part rock and roll, one part Texas cowgirl, the McFadins use buttery soft leather and vintage belts as handbag straps.
Even though they are a super small company - no press person, they answer their own phones - they've been picked up by places like Fred Segal and Anthropologie.
And Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus are regularly spotted carrying their Two Bar West fringe bags around Los Angeles.
I have a bag similar to the one below and get gobs on compliments on it.
And this one has a studded vintage belt for the shoulder strap.
