#GIRLBOSS: empowering handbags for the 9-5 (and then some) professional

  • Written by Scott Broome
(Noun); \ ‘gurl’baus \
A woman in control and taking charge of her own circumstances in both work and life. She is a leader, a visionary; someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is inspiring and empowering to those around her. She dictates her own future. 
The #GIRLBOSS movement has risen to fame over the years thanks to Sophia Amoruso’s pioneering insight into the entrepreneurial woman; inspiring others to redefine their own success on their own terms. Although unnecessarily gender specific (let’s be real, a female boss is just that: a boss!), the term is aspirational and empowers women of all ages to fearlessly forge their own path.
Ambassadors of this philosophy, Sash & Belle, celebrate everyday women by releasing a range of work-appropriate handbags that deliver on versatility, storage and style as standard.
