There's been a lot of bag trends in recent years—hello, baguette bags, micro bags, tote bags, and more—but the one we've been obsessed with recently are ~*beaded*~ bags. They've been popular for quite a while now, but they recently experienced a resurgence, thanks to the rise of local brands making their own creative versions.
