Happy Friday Y'all! I have a very special post today featuring Just Madras.
For those of you who do not recognize the word Madras let me explain. Madras is a lightweight patchwork fabric that usually contains multiple patterns some almost plaid like in design. It is a fabric that is very big in prep fashion especially in designs for the summer.

Just Madras is a Connecticut Company whose love of the Madras fabric takes a new form in dozens of awesome designs. One of my favorite parts about Just Madras is that everything they sell is made in the USA and the quality is awesome. I was given the opportunity to review a Grace Beach Bag.
I could not be happier with the Just Madras Grace Bag. The tote is actually really large and since I received it last week I brought it with me to the beach! Its more than big enough to carry my towel, magazines, suntan lotion and all the essentials. The size is wonderful to carry everything you need to go to the beach, to make an overnight trip, or even be a carry-on for plane rides.

The bag is 15x20x9 inches and comes with a free monogram. My favorite part of the bag is that it has pockets on the sides which is perfect for carrying water bottles- a feature that I wish most beach totes had.
|You can see the size of the bag compared to a standard desk chair- its quite large!|
The Madras fabric itself is very beautiful. The fabric of this Grace Bag is called Sea Island. Its a mixture of seersucker and plaids and the colors are fun and of course preppy. The handles are white rope- a great little nautical touch- and has a nice drop so its easy to carry the bag on my shoulder. I have nothing but nice things to say about the quality of the bag!
The inside has a snap to close the bag, I wish it had a zipper, but the snap provides enough closure where items wont fall out. The lining has a couple pockets so you can stick in your phone and organize the bag. As far as beach bags go this as close to perfect as I can find and 100% recommend the Just Madras bag. If you need to give a gift to a summer birthday or just want to give a present to a preppy girl the Grace Bag is a great way to go!

Just Madras has been nice enough to give away a Pink Seersucker Kimmy Clutch to one The Preppy Student follower!
|The Kimmy Clutch has a metal closure that pops into a hexagon shape.|
The Kimmy Clutch is one of the newest items from Just Madras. The Kimmy Clutch is 6 1/4 x 9 inches and has the coolest closure. It is large enough to fit a cell phone and a small camera and makes the perfect clutch for a night out. The blue seersucker lining is a nice touch!
