i am fully aware that for the better part of a year, my entire wardrobe has been almost entirely blue. i remember several months ago, as i was rebuilding my wardrobe post-baby, i kinda laughed when i looked into my closet and saw that the whole damn thing was filled with white and cream and blue on blue on blue. i knew that i would need to start adding in other colors eventually, but here i am months later, and most of my outfits are still centered around that inky hue. it’s funny, too, because i saw somewhere that indigo is a top contender for the color of spring 2015. i’ll just say i was ahead of the curve… haha!
and while i am slowly picking up fall clothes in other colors, i’m still fully immersed in my “blue period” for at least a couple more weeks. so naturally, when wink & winn offered to let me design my own handbag, i went straight for the navy suede. the site is basically perfect if you’re one of those people like me who tends to be obsessive about every last detail. i’m especially picky about bags because i like simple, classic styles without logos or branding or too many colors. a quick browse around, and i got to work building my bag. you start by choosing your shape, then move on to customizing the leather, color, lining, hardware, and accessories. i went for the classic appeal of the small duffle in navy suede with black smooth leather accents, a black lining, and gold tone hardware. you can actually get pretty wild with the colors and textures, but i always find that i have the hardest time finding simple things for every day. then you simple place your order and patiently wait 3 – 5 weeks for it to be made before it is delivered to your doorstep all wrapped up like a christmas present!
