It’s that time of year again, Festival Season!
Even if you aren’t headed to Coachella or Lollapalooza to soak up the sun and sing along to your favorite bands, Botkier has on-trend looks perfect for any occasion!
Our amazing bags like the #JACKSON crossbody and #VALENTINA are small enough to carry in the crowd but big enough to carry your phone, camera, and accessories.
If you need a bigger bag to hold a beach blanket, or bottles of water, carry along our Chelsea Carryall.
All of these bags come in tons of bright and neutral colors, so they will go with any outfit you choose.
These bags are must-haves to complete the festival ensembles we’ve created just for you.

DIY JEWELRY ORGANIZER


Supplies:
- 1 wooden utensil holder (Bed, Bath, and Beyond)
- 4 packs of Small Solid Brass Screw Eyes (5/8 inch)
- 3 packs of Solid Brass Cup Hooks (5/8 inch)
- 1 Picture hanger set

Directions:
1. Mark where you want to put your screws. You can put two in each column (for necklaces), and as many as you could fit in the smaller horizontal shelves (for earrings). You can use a ruler if you’d like to space them out evenly.
2. Twist all of the screws into place.  Use an ice pick or a bigger screw to start each hole. If your hands are sweaty or shaky, try using a paper towel to get a better grip on the screws as you’re twisting. Push down hard so they really go in and go slowly with a steady hand.
A glass of wine is recommended.


3. Attach the picture holder. On the back of your jewelry organizer, twist the two screws in towards the top and evenly spaced out in the center. Secure the wire by twisting it around itself. Cut with pliers.


4. Spray paint! Go outside and put newspaper down. Follow the directions on the can and let dry.
5. Hang it to the wall, add your jewelry, and you’re done!

DIY SHELVE YOUR CLUTCHES, HANG THE REST

GET THE LOOK:

1. SHELVES : To keep clutches in place, file them like books. Use sweater dividers to cordon off and protect bags made of delicate materials like satin (which can snag) and patent (which can dent and discolor). Lynk shelf dividers, $7 each, bedbathandbeyond.com

2. HOOKS: To keep bags from sagging under their own weight and losing their shape (a danger when they’re left lying down), hang them from hooks affixed to the top of your storage space or unit. Liberty Hardware single-prong hooks, $5 each, amazon.com

3. CREDENZA: While this concept works happily in a closet, we love seeing all our bags displayed in an open case like this one. White low rider bookcase, $349, landofnod.com

CUSTOMIZE IT!

Dress up a plain bookcase with molding: This finishing touch makes a room—and your bag collection—feel extra special.
