I adore a beautiful handmade bag! So it’s no surprise that I’m swooning over my new summer tote – the Josephine Southwestern Tapestry Bag designed by ‘Rebyc‘.  Rebyc is a handbag collection sold exclusively on Esty. The brilliant designer Stephany Childers (featured on my blog a couple of months ago) creates lovely, one-of-a-kind, orignal handbags. No two bags are alike. Her bags are eco-friendly, gorgeous, unique, and made from impeccable recycled leathers and fabrics. I love the idea of carrying a bag, that noone else will have!

Etsy Spotlight: Rebyc Handbags (Designer Interview)

8 May

“I love that I can make cool bags for cool chicks but I don’t have to be cool” – Stephany Childers

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to interview the awesome designer behind Rebyc handbags! Stephany Childers is the creative director and designer behind these one-of-kind gorgeous handbags, sold exclusively on Etsy. I’m so in love with her handbags. I want to own them all! I adore the mix of recycled leather and vintage fabrics. I also love the idea of owning a bag that’s one-of-kind. No two bags that she creates is alike. The beauty of her bags speak for themselves. Check out the interview below along with photos of some of my favorite bags from her Etsy shop. Be forewarn her bags sell fast on Etsy. If you see a style you love – buy it!  

Kena: Where did you get your start?
Stephany: My mom taught me how to sew when I was young. I guess you could say I got my start in New York City. I worked in the design industry while living in NYC before moving back home to Oregon.
Kena: When did you join Etsy? How long did it take you to make a career out of it?
Stephany: I started selling my bags on Etsy in 2007. I made it my full-time career a year and half ago. I love it!
Kena: How many bags do you sell on Etsy?
Stephany: I usually sell between 30 to 40 bags a month.
Kena: Do you ever do special orders?
Stephany: Yes. I have many repeat customers.
Kena: Where do you live?
Stephany: I live in a small town in Oregon. I was homeschooled. I have a really awesome and loving family.
Kena: Where do you get your inspiration from?
Stephany: The fabric, trims, and notion are my starting point. I see a piece of fabric and the bag kind of evolves from there.
Kena: Where do you find the amazing fabrics you use for your bags?
Stephany: All my bags are eco-friendly, I use recycled fabrics. Most of the fabrics, are from estate sales, salvation army, antique shop, and vintage stores. I love to hunt for fabrics. I hate matching so, I love to mix and match different textiles and leather textures to create a unique, one-of-kind handbag.
Kena: Your handbags are so unique and gorgeous. Why do you choose to sell your bags on Etsy and not in a department store?
Stephany I like having creative control. I want to design bags that I love and have the freedom to decide how to create them. Etsy gives me that freedom. I actually remember every bag I create.
Stephanie is one rad chick, I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with her! She was super patience with all my questions. Her passion to create one-of-kind, high quality, gorgeous bags are evident of the HUGE following she’s built on Etsy.  Stephanie is an AH-mazing designer with incredible gift to design beautiful handbags. After viewing these photos below of her design crafty work, you’ll begin to understand why I’m swooning over her bags!

Big Spender Vs. Penny Pincher

26 Apr

I’m loving this Marc Jacobs – 1984 satchel bag. At the moment I don’t have an extra $1500 lying around to purchase a new handbag. So, I did a little research on new favorite site (Etsy) and found a similar less expensive bag. It’s a 60’s vintage frame bag. It doesn’t have the designer name but it sure has that lovely classic style. I present to you a new series on my blog called – BIG SPENDER Vs. PENNY PINCHER. Which bag do you prefer.

Etsy Spotlight: Scarf Obsession

23 Oct

I’m a lover of scarves. Printed, solid colors, silk, whatever the fabric or color I’m game! I own loads of scarves and add to my collection regularly. Imagine my surprise when I came across a glorious scarf shop on Etsy called ScarfObsession! I’m in love with this shop! Not only do they offer a grand selection of gorgeous printed scarves but they’re prices are brilliant! Wait for it, wait for it…..each scarf sells for $29 to $34! That’s practically FREE! Ok, so maybe I’m being a little over dramatic about how good the prices are.  Anyway, I’ve already ordered the plaid infinity scarf below. Can’t wait to style it with my black leather moto jacket and some skinnies. Holla!
