Be a Leader Of the Fashion Pack: The IT Handbag Is About Being Different

Our fashion philosophy is to be true to yourself. This spring we are approaching shopping with no fear. Remember when you had that one fashion moment where you put something together that was genuine to your personal style? You ignored trends and what people would think? You were fearless, free and you felt cool. We want you to shop that way. To top the shopping cake, it would feel even better if you shopped handmade while supporting those who are less fortunate.

Every season or two we women look for a handbag to fit all our needs. We want quality materials, good structure, sometimes a designer name and we want something versatile. A well made handbag should have the ability to make you swoon, or maybe that’s just us.

Presenting a few of our handbag picks that we can almost guarantee no one around you will carry.
