The Olympics are in full swing, and in addition to watching the games, isn’t it so exciting to see folks donning all kinds of patriotic fashion from star-spangled outfits to union jack nails? I, too, wanted to show my support for team USA and team Japan but I didn’t want to end up buying random tsotchkes that I would only wear once, so I decided to recycle myself a DIY flag clutch out of an old video tape box. This DIY is uber easy (if you start now, you might even have it ready for the next event), and the best thing about it is that you can rep two different teams if your nationality is hyphenated like my own. When you’re at the pub rooting for team USA, just flash the American flag side and when it’s time for your other team to strut its stuff, just flip your clutch to show the other flag!

After much soul searching, I’ve decided to finally sell my beloved green Fluoro bag by the Cambridge Satchel Company. I was obsessed with it for quite some time but it’s such a special bag that I feel like it belongs with a person who will actually wear it out and show it off more than once a month. I love the rarity (Cambridge Satchel bags are lovingly handmade in the UK and can take up to 30 days to craft and ship out) and of course the wild color, but as most of my friends know, I just prefer petite bags. This green Fluoro is in near perfect condition and once it’s in your hands, you will see why these bags cost so darn much – they’re worth it! I hope the pics are big enough for you to see all of the details but if you’d like more photos, please comment on the post and I will be happy to send some to you.
Speaking of the photos, I’d like to express my warm gratitude to lensman extraordinaire William Chang for inviting me along for a fun day of photography. Check out some of the shots taken by Will and Wei Chang in the gallery below.
