Design Your Own Handbag

May 7, 2014

Ladies, I know I speak for all of us when I say haven’t we all wanted to add our own personal touch to a handbag of our own design? Sure there are a lot of choices for clutches and duffle bags out there but here’s a really fun gift to give yourself or a special gal in your life, it’s the opportunity to design a small crossbody or large tote (among several other styles) right down to the colors and hardware.

I was approached by Wink & Winn a few months ago with this concept, how fun! Wink & Winn allows anyone to design their own handbag; to get me started, they sent me a key ring of colorful premium leathers to examine and a little instruction booklet too. You can find all of these details on how it works on their website.

It was a fun process, I contemplated a two tone blue duffle at first, choosing the leather and trim, the website is user friendly and allows you to drag color options and save different designs before you buy.

I decided to do something fun and bright, I chose an orange and white palette on the East West tote to cart to the beach or pool and for traveling this summer.

    I love love love the sachel bag. I think this is an awesome concept and it looks like fun to design it yourself. It would save lots of time shopping when you knew the color of the purse you needed and you could just order it instead of running all over the place looking for “the bag”.
    Wished I would have thought of this idea!!
