One of the best parts about working at Handbago is being able to make some great connections happen. We are so happy to share that one of our fave designs by Annie Handbags has made its way on to the arms of Ivy Dickens of Gossip Girl! The Helius Shoulder bag is a sleek, yet bohemian touch to actress Kaylee DeFer's neutral, rocker look and is proof that Annie Handbags is a perfect addition to the Upper East Side. Keep an eye out for the Helius Shoulder Bag on the last and final season of Gossip Girl!
