I heard about the Love, Cortnie brand through various Facebook networks. I checked out Cortnie’s Etsy site and just gushed over her cute clutches. I reached out to Cortnie and bought the “Cool Cat” leopard-print clutch that I thought would be PERFECT for an outfit I had been planning for an event. I adore my new clutch! She did such a good in its construction, from the stitching to the heavy fabric. On the inside is polka-dot contrasting fabric and a small pocket for keys or business cards. Aside from buying the clutch, I also had to find out more on this handbag prodigy. It all started at the end of August last year when she wanted to learn how to sew; so she enlisted the help of her Grandmother, who was more than happy to teach her. After a quick craft supply spree, they worked on making a clutch. A week later, she had a shop on Etsy with three styles. Now, she has over forty. Her most popular bags are the leopard-printed ‘Ashleigh’ clutch and the ‘Glittering Gold’ sequin clutch. She just started a blowout sale on Spring/Summer clutches, so they range from $25-120. You can buy her bags on her Etsy or at three boutiques- Dress to Kill (opening September 1st) in Miami, Violet Boutique in DC and Bonnie Bonet in Tampa, FL. Love, Cortnie is also sold online at http://Shopjeen.com. When Cortnie isn’t busy making clutches, she is blogging on StyleLust Pages– her own personal style blog where she posts her outfits and the latest news for her Etsy shop.
