I’ve always loved product design, but I was never able to pick just one category. I love fashion, art, interiors, office products — I could never land on one to become an expert in. So I was so excited when leather handbag and accessories designer Blair Ritchey, who you might have gotten to know in her Behind the Biz interview, was up for collaborating with me.
I am a huge fan of her luxury leather (I love leather) products and I had a few ideas of my own. I love olive green. I have multiple olive green shirts, I am constantly attracted to olive green. When it wear it, it makes my eyes more green than blue — I love that. So we introduced an olive green gator leather pencil case and iphone case to a few of Blair’s existing products (the olive is exclusive to my shop), and one product that we collaborated on — the sunglass case — also exclusive to my shop. (Relax, it’s not REAL gator leather, it’s embossed.)
Just FYI today is the LAST DAY my entire shop is 30% off! The discount will automatically be taken at checkout so you don’t have to put in a code. Every product is 30% off until 11:59 PST (1/3/14)!
The pencil cases (I’ve got the olive, black, and sorry snake is sold out but you can get one from Blair!) can be for anything (not just pencils) — it’s a makeup case, a lip product case (if you’re one of those people that carries 9 lip products with you, a pen case. I mostly use mine for beauty products and it’s always in my purse. It’s just the right size — small enough, but holds enough. I’ve got a few lip products, perfume, eyedrops and a pen in mine.
These are shots of all three iPhone cases I carry. I’m pretty obsessed with them. I love that they are leather. They are edgy and chic, yet classic at the same time. I’ve got them in olive, snake, and black for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5 and 5S.
I’ve also got the sunglass case in a wine suede (in addition to the olive gator and black gator) It’s sooooo pretty. I actually use mine as a mini clutch when I’m going out to eat. I can fit my phone, ID, credit card, lip gloss, and sunglasses. That’s all I need!
