|My PAK Essentials|
A few weeks after I announced the big news on my blog, I received the most thoughtful package from the über-talented Blair Ritchey. I quickly opened the box to find a sweet surprise and a glimmer of hope. Eek, it was another one of her gorgeous bags! I was absolutely overwhelmed by her generosity. This time, Blair gifted me with her latest design, the PAK—which is named after her dear friends, Paige, Anne, and Kristin. The pouch was originally designed with them in mind because all three ladies have children and in Blair's words, "Moms still want to be stylish and carry luxury pieces, too." Reading those words was like music to my ears.
Blair went on to explain features of the PAK that make it functional. "esigned with travelers and moms in mind, jet-setting and kiddos aren't required for purchase!
Getting to know Blair over the past two years has been such a treat. I honestly should have known that she would be the one to restore my hope in being a stylish mom. Thanks, Blair! Having used my PAK religiously for the past two months (it makes me feel so fancy), I'm incredibly excited to incorporate it into my new role as fashionable mom. It's a beautiful thing when form and function mingle, my friends! When I flaunt this beauty around the border, I feel a little more prepared for what's to come. Gorgeous accessories seem to have that effect on people. Give this girl a great bag and she can conquer the world— or at least Swell Rio!
