Miss Meers Bridgeport

While Miss Meers will always be a shoe boutique at heart, you may have noticed that we carry a bit more than shoes in our stores. I'm not talking about the amazing selection of clothing at our Eugene location, I'm talking about bags!
Much like our shoes, we get new bags in seasonally from a few select brands that we stand by and ADORE. Get to know some of the brands sold in our stores, then stop by and see them for yourself! And keep in mind: Matching your shoes to your purse is not required!

Why we love them: Started as part of a dare to the designers to go vegan for a month, Matt & Nat has grown to become a huge international brand and a shining example of practicing what you preach. Not only are the bags vegan (that's right, no real leather folks), but many of the materials used are sustainable as well. Matt & Nat's motto is simply "live beautifully", which means "appreciating the humanity, creativity, and positivity found in all of us".

Where you can find them: All locations!

Fave styles:
Whilem, Alter, Blinkin (pictured from left to right).

Why we love them: Founded in Eugene, Oregon (like us!) in 1981, Will has kept its impeccable craftsmanship even after expanding to be distributed internationally, and even offers a lifetime guarantee on ALL of its products."Discover your Will" in our Bridgeport locaton!

Where you can find them: Wallets and bags in Bridgeport Village only.

Fave styles: Imogene Checkbook Clutch, Reversible Quilted Tote, Hazel Crossbody.

Why we love them: Functionality and versatility are at the core of Hammitt bags. The removable and adjustable straps make it is easy to take your bag from a clutch, to a crossbody, to everything in between. Many of them even feature reversible colors to coordinate with your outfit without switching bags. Not sold yet? All of Hammitt's bags come with a lifetime warranty, and they never discount to ensure that you are truly getting what you pay for.

Where you can find them: Eugene and Bridgeport Village (Eugene's selection is largest).

Fave styles: Andrew, Montana, Tony.

Why we love them: You are probably familiar with Frye because of the famous Frye boots. Frye has been perfecting the benchcrafting of boots since the 1860s. Frye bags show the same level of craftsmanship and care you have come to expect from the brand (and we think they're pretty cute).

Where you can find them: All locations!

Fave styles: Heidi Fringe, Melissa Hobo, Diana Stud Crossbody.

Why we love them: Designed "for women, by women" by a mother and daughter, Hobo is a true family business success story. Hobo bags are as stylish as they are practical, always keeping in mind that quality never goes out of style.

Where you can find them: Wallets in Eugene, bags in Eugene and Bridgeport!

Fave styles: Lauren wallet, Vale, Vida wristlet.
