Style File: Sassy BB
Lets face it, if you want to standout this holiday season, there are only so many ways to dress differently. But if you want to find a purse that promises to be one of a kind, forget travelling around the world. In tonight's Style File, we found a store here in South Florida where you can design every detail yourself.
WSVN--The dress. The shoes. The jewels. But an outfit is never complete without a fabulous handbag for some women it is "the" accessory they cannot live without. And at Sassy BB -- you can sass up your bag by making it yourself.
Kerry Szymanski: "They are fun, they are funky, it's taking a functional bag such as a totebag and making it fun, really putting your own design to it."
This Fort Lauderdale boutique owned by Kerry Szymanski lets you design your own purses with fabrics such as silk denim cotton and velvet choose your favorite fabric and style and they'll do the rest.
Kerry Szymanski: "I buy small quantities of fabric so no one in the world will have the same bag as you."
And these special handbags are all named after dances. Take the twist yoga bag. Or the tango tote mom's can put all their baby stuff inside the bellydance bag and you can take fido to go in the boogie woogie.
Kerry Szymanski: "I just thought it was a really creative way to identify the bags and it even gives the bags a little more personality."
This group of friends decided to spend an afternoon together unleashing their creative inner divas at Sassy BB.
Melissa Cartwright: "I love purses, and I like the idea that I can come here and just have my own style pick whatever I want."
Gina Giuseffi-Crum: "You can buy designer bags, but it's better to design your own."
It's fun and simple -- and best of all it's one of a kind.
Kerry Szymanski: "It's somewhere where women come in and really express themselves, so if they don't actually know how to sew, they can be a fashion designer for a day."
Designing a bag costs anywhere from 15 to 100 dollars.
