Susan's Favorites

The Bag I Grab the Most

Our first product and the one I still reach for the most is the Black Crossbody Bag. I change out the strap from stripes to camouflage to animal print depending on my mood.

Favorite Bag for Summer Vacation

I use the Straw Tote for every part of my day when I'm on vacation in the summer! I take it to the pool, sightseeing and even out at night as my purse. 

Favorite New Product

I love the Pink Camera Bag! It's a soft pink color that goes with everything and makes an outfit feel special.

Best Gift for Graduation 

All college girls needs a clear bag for football games, concerts and other stadium events. It's the perfect gift that is cute and will be put to good use.
