If you’ve been on TikTok at all in the past month, you’ve definitely stumbled across Emily Mariko. The lifestyle vlogger first went viral thanks to her salmon rice bowl tutorial, which includes the mystifying act of putting an ice cube in the microwave (genius). Since then, she has posted other short cooking vlogs, fridge-cleaning vlogs, and farmer’s market haul vlogs that are more captivating than any single episode of Chopped.
But we’re not here to talk about the food. We’re here to talk about the BAG. You know, the orange, Y2K-inspired delight featured in nearly every TikTok not filmed in her kitchen.
Not only is the accessory super fun and chill, but it’s also surprisingly affordable? And you can grab it on Amazon? Helloooo, Prime shipping.
JW PEI Gabbi Bag, $79.99
Before you ask: Yes, it can easily fit your wallet, phone, keys and an extra face mask.
If you’re not feeling the orange, the bag also comes in 12 different colors, including bubblegum pink and soft lavender. It’s truly an easy way to nail that retro ’90s look while still feeling fresh, thanks to the puffy pleating. Oh, and your conscience can rest easy because it’s made of 100% vegan leather and recycled plastic. Reviewers have gone so far as to call this bag “delightful” and “soft like butter,” so do with that what you will.
LA-based husband-and-wife duo Yang Pei and Stephanie Li founded the trending brand, JW PEI, and their styles have since spread through the influencer network like wildfire. Seriously, I don’t think there’s a single verified person on any social media app that doesn’t own one of their many adorable bags, like the just-as-popular 90s Shoulder Bag.
Shop Emily’s go-to bag above and start living your best salmon-rice-bowl life in however long it takes you to pick up your packages.
