Gabourey Sidibe Rocks This Handbag In The Shape Of Africa And We Want One Now
Gabourey Sidibe may post mainly cat photos to her Instagram, but when she posts a piece of fashion she has worn several times, we take notice. It’s hard to find a celeb who wears a piece over and over again, but a la Tiffany Haddish (who made headlines for wearing her $4,122 Alexander McQueen dress four times), Sidibe has let her know about one of her favorite pieces.
She first posted the bag back in May; however, we didn’t get a good look at it.
A few days ago she gave us a better look at the bag, which is a crossbody in the shape of Africa. We have to have it! The bag is by Orijin, a brand that promotes and creates African inspired fashion. Via their website, the company states, “Although Orijin is Afro-centric in nature, our themes are universal. An eclectic brand fusing creative, modern, ambitious and “orijinality.”
The company partners with designers and artisans for their online shop and all the products are 100% original hand made products from Africa.
She wore the bag again and tagged them this time! I love when celebs support up and coming brands and smaller ventures. The brand is even doing a partnership with FashionBombDaily. Love!
