Vendula Funky Handbags- Beauty Salon Box Bag Review

What a lovely day it is here in Michigan, the unseasonable warmth has given way to a bit of snow so I am holding out hope for a white Christmas!  I have been getting everything looking lovely with lots of new vintage additions to my Christmas decor collection this year, stay tuned because I will be posting a big Tuesday Treasures blog filled with Retro Christmas goodness!!!  I have so many great new photos and a couple of holiday dress reviews coming soon, be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram for the whole scoop!

Today I am reviewing the Beauty Shop Box Bag in Rose Pink from Vendula.  Vendula have a great selection of funky handbags and unique accessories in a variety of adorable and delightful styles.  I fell in love with so many of their designs and when I contacted them, Vendula were kind enough to send me a bag to review for you.  While I love all of their stylish and interesting bags, I chose the Beauty Salon Box Bag because I could not resist the adorable cats getting all dolled up in the Beauty Salon plus I already own the adorable Voodoo Vixen Kitty Dress and matching Isabella Cardigan (review coming soon!!) and I knew this trio would be absolutely purrfect!

Immediately out of the box, I noticed the bright colors, fun subject matter and bold details on the bag.  The Vendula Beauty Salon Bag pictures appliqued black cats in a fun and action packed Beauty Salon scene.

Our first Lady Cat, complete with a pink bow in her hair having her nails painted red by a stylist cat. Behind her are the usual Beauty Salon items, a mirror and an advertisement featuring a model kitty with crazy on trend candy striped hair! To the right is another cat complete with a towel on her head, green face pack on and slices of cucumber on her eyes, she's reading a magazine and enjoying a pedicure in true Beauty Salon pampering style. To the left, we have the shop front door with an applique open sign and door knob. The salon is beautifully decorated with adorable applique hanging baskets and fabric flowers with the trademark striped canopy.  The back of the bag pictures an old fashioned street lamp, bicycle perched against. In true Vendula humor, ‘Bill Posters Will Be Prosecuted’ and in spray painted graffiti underneath the words ‘Bill posters is INNOCENT!!’ and it would not be a complete street scene without the London red Telephone box!
The purse is roomy, lined with Vendula London print fabric and featuring a zip pocket inside.  Vendula Bags are made of sturdy animal friendly faux leather and bright synthetics so you do not have to worry about harming our animal friends for fashion!  I am impressed with the feel of the bag, it is very well made, of high quality materials that will stand up well to daily use.

 The long adjustable moc-croc strap is cute and makes it easy to carry over your shoulder or slung across as a messenger bag if you need your bag kept more secure.  The bag and strap feature contrast green stitching that I just love against the brilliant pink and black colors.  The design if the bag makes it a visual delight and I have had fun seeing peoples reactions to it.  Everyone wants a closer look at this adorable bag!    Vendula Bags are unique, high quality and ethically made, practically purrfect in every way!  Which design by Vendula is your choice??


  1. There are two that grab my attention. The Tea Room Style Grab Bag and the Dandelion Musical Grab Bag in black.

    1. Very nice choices! I myself was drawn to the music bag as well, being a singer, I am a fool for anything that has music notes or print on it!
