It’s no secret that I’ve become quite the handbag hoarder/lover/obsessive person. I need a bag for every day, for going out, for going out with the toddler, another going out one in a bright color, some fun ones with different patterns to spruce up a plain outfit, some trendy ones, some more neutral every day ones… the end if never in sight (and probably will never be). ;) So when Wink & Winn contacted me about their custom handbag process and designs, I immediately thought, why didn’t I think of that myself (as a business idea), and then wow, this is every girl’s dream!

From the design, type of leather, lining, hardware and color, you get to customize every little piece! They’ve got a ton of options to choose from and it’s so fun to “play handbag designer” for an afternoon (every little girl’s pipe dream, eh?).  And they’ve got plenty of inspiration right here!

This little bag is their crossbody style, that is made up of 3 different fabrics and each little pouch snaps apart so it can be used on it’s own as well.  I just love the neutral colors and of course the pop of leopard that this bag goes with almost anything!

    Recently I’ve been dreaming about a small red bag. But, that could change with the blink of an eye!

    What a great concept. Looking through the gallery, I love the Large Triangle Tip Tote in horsehair large tan leopard, smooth leather blue and smooth leather beige with gold hardware.

    Right now, a leopard print bag pretty much is my dream bag! And I love crossbody so I can have my hands free.

    I honestly have no idea how to narrow down the design – I have just been looking through the gallery and these bags are stunning! So many options! For how indecisive I am, I do know that I would definitely include a tassel and monogram :)

    Feb 25, 2014 @ 9:06 am

    Now that I have discovered Wink & Winn through this post I am obsessed. It is so hard to narrow down what I would choose but I am leaning toward a small satchel in a light brown smooth leather.

    I love bags that are big enough to carry around my necessities but also tuck my computer into if needed. I prefer a neutral bag so I can accessorize it with the seasons.

  28. Hana K
    Feb 25, 2014 @ 10:46 am

    Actually what you posted would be awesome! Neutrals and leopard are my favorites and I love that you could use it all together or separately.

    I love leopard print! But I also tend to like printed clothing as well so I would love a bag with leopard print lining but a solid exterior to go with all my clothing choices. I tend to like bigger style bags because I always tote a lot of stuff with me!
