I'm in Handbag Heaven!

Recently I was contacted by Handbag Heaven to create some outfits around the handbag of my choice for their Style Guide. In my What I'm Wearing Wednesday post last week, you saw me with this gorgeous lavender handbag.

I can't tell you how excited I was to be contacted by Handbag Heaven to be featured in their Style Guide. Have you been to their site? I could spend hours there!

The Krissie Studded Envelope bag that I chose is an everyday bag with a hard rock twist! The Krissie, by Vieta handbags, has a soft leatherette exterior and glossy silver hardware. This little structured bag has a large foldover front flap with braided leatherette trim. I love that when you open the front flap there is a zipper closure on the inside to keep your items safe from falling out. The outer edges of the Krissie are embellished with silver studs and metal ring details that gives it just a little bit of edge, yet can be completely sophisticated as well. A chain and leatherette strap can be worn on your shoulder, and a longer chain strap can make the Krissie a messenger bag. Both straps are detachable which makes it so easy to swap for different looks. For me, the shorter strap works best. I don't need a long strap sitting in a wheelchair, so having the option to use either size is such an added bonus.

From the moment I opened the package, I fell in love with this handbag! The color in person is just stunning and works with so many outfit options.

Check out my featured Style Guide post here to see what outfits I styled to show off my new favorite purse.
