I do love a great bag. I mean, don’t we all? But let me ask you, how many times have you been on the hunt for that PERFECT bag? The one in THAT color, in THAT shape, with that detailing? You know what I mean! Well, check this… I happened to be on Instagram, and I stumbled upon a friend’s picture that had me curious… Customizable Hand bags form Wink and Winn… color me intrigued.
Wink & Winn is on to something here… launched in 2013 Lenny Tjoe married his years in product development in the luxury handbag space and his “desire to introduce consumers to the sense of play that had been exclusively behind-the-scenes in the fashion world.” All I knew was that I was here for all of this.
Well, they happened to check out my comment and said Hay Girl, Hay! (Not in those words, but you get me) and invited me to test out their services! WOOT! I received this welcome package and then I went to work…

The Win & Winn Process
What I really loved about this process was that it was simple. Easy to understand and navigate. The pricepoints were not outrageous and on the same level as you would see in any department store handbag area… I could dig it!

I opted for a rich NAVY Snakeskin color to envelope the satchel. WOOT! I do not have that color and I wanted something that would be a great replacement for a black bag.
I chose my lining and hardware choices and I was feeling good…
And here comes the crazy cool part… SHIPPING IS FREE within the US! YEP! How about them apples! I cannot wait for my bag to arrive and I am still over there creating different color options and layouts… Seriously, I think I am kind of addicted here! LOL
