Jill Milan - the most wonderful vegan handbags the world has ever seen.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope you are all having a fantastic week full of sunshine.  
Today I want to introduce you to the handbag I fell in love with - which was kindly send to me by Jill Milan. When Jill contacted me  I was overwhelmed with emotions. I could not believe that she contacted me and I felt so honored and happy - she offered to send me one of her beautiful handbags to review. I can't thank you enough, Jill. You absolutely made my day....my year! Everything. I am so in love with the handbag, I can't even find words for it. The handbag I have chosen is the Nob Hill Bag in Berry. You can see here that a lot of celebrities wear Jill Milan bags - Jennifer Lawrence, Eva Longoria, Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Stana Katic (Becket from Castle), Anne Hathaway, Isla Fisher, Elizabeth Hurley - and now me! Unbelievable. 

I am clearly not a fashion blogger but I hope you don't mind. Just look at the beautiful bag and ignore me. 





All the Jill Milan handbags are handmade in a family-owned atelier in Florence, Italy. They use PVC-free, vegan materials which are often recycled - no leather, fur, wool or other animal-based materials. You can read more about it here.





I love the way the handbag feels in my hands. It is such a soft material. I wish I could describe it any better.




I think the bag is perfect to wear when you go out but it is also great during the day. There is definitely enough space for your phone, wallet, make up, keys and whatever else you need. And I know what I am talking about since I always carry way too much stuff around.




I guess you can tell that I am really in love with my Jill Milan handbag. I guess this won't be my last. I mean, just check out all the other bags. They are all lovely and it was a hard decision for me to choose one. 




I love the combination of grey and the dark red. I really wish you could see the bag in reality because the pictures don't do it any justice. It looks even better in reality.




I even have matching shoes. I guess it could not be any better. But I feel like I can wear this bag with pretty much anything in my closet.




It really is love. Handbag love. I really don't know how stupid that sounds but it is what it is. The quality of the bag is fantastic so I know that it will be with me for a long long time. Again, I am sorry that the pictures can't show the bag in all its glory. You just have to trust me that it looks even prettier in reality. 






So what are your thoughts? Which one is your favorite handbag? Do you sometimes fall in love with an object? Have you heard of Jill Milan before? 

Have a great day!

And thanks again to Jill! I feel so honored and I can't thank you enough for giving me this opportunity! It means so much to me! I love and admire your work! Thank you!
The handbag was sent to me by Jill Milan, all opinions and pictures are my own.

    1. Aww, thank you so much, Martha! You are so sweet. I have to admit that I liked these shoes so much that I bought them in 3 colors. Shame on me! But they were on sale! Well, the first one wasn't but the others.

  9. What a cute red handbag, I’ve never heard of the brand before. The handbag suits you pretty well and I love soft materials, too! The shoulder strap reminds me of these Stella McCartney Falabella bags! Thanks for sharing your review, I love vegan and cruelty-free fashion! You should be a fashion blogger, I would love to read all about it!
