AO3 Designs

Once again, I found out about another great handbag line through Let me introduce AO3 Designs- chic, handmade and feminine handbags and clutches that was launched in 2003 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. What drew me to the line were the bold prints, like chevron and damask, that are complemented with a grosgrain ribbon closure. Inside nestled a small lace pocket, ideal for holding keys, credit cards or some change. Looking more into the line, I found out that each handbag takes weeks to design, while taking in consideration the needs of the AO3 Designs consumer, such as shape, pattern and color. Each bag is also carefully cut and put together by hand and with the same goal in mind: the end product being something of quality and for the new owner to love for years to come. In 2008, the company introduced bridal clutches that would make great gifts for bridesmaids, usually in the form of customization. According to co-founder Angela Olson, “In addition to custom and ready made clutches, we offer our {Something Old to Something New} service for brides looking to incorporate their mother’s dress, grandmother’s veil, etc. into a clutch they will use for their wedding day. We also offer embroidered tags to our clutches in which a bride could add a fun note for the girls or add an elegant monogram with her wedding date.” In addition to bridal accessories, be on the look-out for leather clutches coming soon! Prices for the handbags and clutches range from a wallet-friendly $55 to $255. Be sure to check out and their etsy! My favorite clutch is the ALEXIS. Check out how I styled it in the slideshow below.
