Jessica Alba is not an actress you see appearing in movies all the time. It seems more like something she did when she was younger and is now “SO OVER IT.” She’s more into her family, writing books on lifestyle and recipes. She’s very into the luxury L.A. lifestyle, even though she appears to think she’s “so much more down to earth than Gwyneth Paltrow.” That’s why she could be the next Victoria Beckham or Gwyneth Paltrow, if Blake Lively doesn’t beat her to it first with her lifestyle blog.
Part of the process of creating an image as a luxury living connoisseur is knowing which brands are trendy before everyone else does, or in other words, creating the trend. That seems to be what Jessica’s doing by carrying a brand from this little known British brand Smythson. It’s little known but all the “right people” aka wealthy people know about it because it goes back so many years. The company was founded in 1887 and this is the Smythson 1887 Tote. Bound to make you feel classy when you carry it.
