The Envelope Please

Hand-painted leather goods from local Lilly + Oak, available at pretty pink trailer The Sage Soul.

You wouldn't say you were a textbook-defined hoarder, but you have started using your suitcases for storage.

Cut back on the clutter by downsizing to a clutch existence from Lilly + Oak, one of the brands stocked at The Sage Soul, the darling pink trailer that's permanently parked with a handful of other retailers outside of the shops at Mueller. Carefully crafted by Austin's Kara O'Brien in her home studio, there's a hand-painted, soft pebble leather bag for every personality. Consider color-dipped, two tone clutches in summer colors like lilac and seagrass. Rather be hands-free? Her killer crossbodies come in bright florals and more subtle brushstrokes. But, the cutest in the collection just might be the earbud "tacos" to aid in organization - are you more of a flamingo or cactus girl?

One small step away from pack rat status. 

Meet Kara, who will hand-emboss leather goods you purchase, at the Back To School Party at The Sage Soul, pictured above, TOMORROW, Saturday, August 4, from 10 a.m. - noon.
