Even though I live in a tropical-ish place where it never gets too cold and the weather is often spring-like or hella summery, I *still* get super excited about spring and spring fashions. Like many, I feel that spring is a kind of rebirth for the soul, and if you’ve had a rough winter, spring can seem like the perfect time to find your inner bloom. One of the easiest ways to feel refreshed, on the outside at least, is to invest in a statement piece that you can get a lot of mileage out of (we’re not ones for throw-away fashion at Peaceful Dumpling). These bags will make your wardrobe feel like new—and they’ll last you season after season. A win-win!
Made with post-consumer cruelty-free faux leather, this pebbled navy bucket bag comes with thick, faux suede straps that tie in a knot at the top (read: adjustable strap!). The straps are black, contrasting against the navy bag. Perfect for work or play and holding your favorite novel.
Oh hello, beauty! This cross-body eco-vegan leather bag is as sleek as it is cute. Comes with magnetic closure, zippered interior pocket, and smart phone pocket. This bag is ideal for polished professional events where you want to look immaculate *and* chic.
While this bag is technically from Veganni’s F/W 16 collection, I think cream is a gorgeous color for spring, especially if you pair it with fun brights. Much of the metalwork in Veganni bags is made by artisans in the Xieng Khouang Province in Northern Laos who create the hardware using recycled aluminum from Vietnam-War era bombs. All Veganni leather and suede is vegan!
With two zippers and three pockets, this backpack provides functional storage for the busy girl on the go. Pair with a faded denim jacket for instant It Girl status. If you’re not familiar with Mechaly, they’re a pretty cool all-vegan, PETA-approved company that aims to provide affordable cruelty-free options for all kinds of accessories—even candles!
This stunning handmade bag is made with 100% vegan leather and is lined with material made from recycled plastic bottles. The bag may be worn as a shoulder bag or carried as a clutch. Either way, the eye-catching texture is sure to start a conversation!
