“Hello, gorgeous.” That’s what I said upon setting my eyes on the AmyKathryn handbags at Wallflower, in downtown Santa Cruz. (Or, at least, those are the words that came to mind—I know better than to talk to purses in a quiet store.) It was lust at first sight that soon grew into a deep love once I read that AmyKathryn bags are eco-conscious and animal friendly (faux leather only). Weeks later, I’m still pining after this slouchy, summer-ready Lily Brown bag ($99 at Wallflower). Check out the line at amykathryn.com.
