Paulina Carcach Sponsor Spotlight Review

Do you remember when I did this review on my new handbag called Victoria from Paulina Carcach? This bag is really the perfect size because I have alot of stuff I carry around especially on the days I have to go to the doctors and they want me to bring all my medicines with me. I hate to carry a separate bag with just those because you look like a drugstore! I have loved using this bag so much that I asked Paulina if I could please have just a giveaway bag for her to hold onto for a Christmas Event and she was so gracious and agreed!

There is a middle section that is zippered up and then a huge space on either side of the zippered middle. Then you have another hidden little zippered part in one of those side spaces while the opposite side space has some little open compartments that could hold a cell phone, address book, something small along those lines. Then on the front of the bag is another zippered area to stick something that maybe you use alot and want it to be accessible really quick and easy like a compact and your favorite lipstick.

The Victoria handbag is so soft to the touch and smells just like a new car smell, you know, like real leather! I feel very lucky and giddy right about now with this fabulous handbag to show off the next time I go out.
This is a cross body style that I like but not too sure about the colors but definitely like the way it looks!  I wanted to show you some different styles that she makes so you know a little more about her handbags.  And then one more and I think you will get the idea of why her bags are so popular!
Now, Paulina Carcach has launched a new line of bags called Design Your Own and you can change the hardware to either silver or gold, change the where the logo goes, change the color of the inside and outside and also accent the bag depending on which style you chose, for instance, you might have a stripe running across the bag or up and down, etc. What a cool idea! You can make it all yours and it will be unique and totally you! Take for example my bag above, you can use different kinds of leather, change the color of the fabric on the inside and take the logo off if you don't like it on the outside. Most of these bags run anywhere from $152 to $232.

You will have an array of styles to choose from such as totes, satchels, cross body, clutches and shoulder bags. They also have wallets and accessories to choose from also. The accessories are leather belts, earrings and wristlets in various colors and styles. I never would have imagined wearing leather earrings but if you are a leather lover kinda gal, then you have come to the right place!

Here is a snippet of what I found under About Us:
Owner Paulina Carcach was born and raised in Guanajuato, Mexico. The second child of three siblings, she showed her love for leather and fashion at an early age. Paulina grew up watching her grandfather and father make cowboy boots by hand; she was always around leather and shoes. Paulina knows how leather is treated and it's characteristics. "I love leather because of it's look and feel, its often used for quality items, such as shoes and accessories". "I think once you know how to treat and work with leather, you can work with any other medium".

Prior to working in the fashion world, Paulina worked as an Interior Designer at a San Francisco Design Firm, after graduating from the Interior Architecture and Design program at the Academy of Art. “Interior Design is another passion of mine, I will some day have a Home Collection”. Paulina loves to design, whether is handbags, shoes, interiors or anything in between.

Ok, the idea that you can design your own is amazing! Do you know how many bags I have passed over even though I loved them because of something like the buckles were gold or i didnt like this one little thing on it. To be able to pick your own is fantastic! Thanks for the review and giveaway!

I actually own one of these handbags and their quality is exceptional! They allow you to create your own custom bag which is very unique. You can have it as YOU want it. I was very pleased with the results of the one I created.. Would love to get one for my sister!

yea! crossbody. i work at a ribal casino. it's the only place in our rural area to socialize, but you learn quickly that a crossbody gives you extra security. so many of the "good" purse designer don't offer this style.

Very cute bags! I prefer over the shoulder to cross body, but bags are bags and a girl cant have too many.
