BEST Featured Artist - missprettyperfect

When I started to read the profile of Miss Pretty Perfect, for a moment I thought I was reading about myself!  This is what I read:  "Miss Pretty Perfect is described as a woman who is a care-free, motivated, go-getter who is not easily led. Miss Pretty Perfect represents the independent woman who works, strives, and believes in a positive lifestyle and surrounding. Miss Pretty Perfect feels good inside and thinks highly of herself. Attention and admiration keeps her breathing. Even though she doesn't live in a perfect world, Miss Pretty Perfect creates one in her mind".  Actually, it sounds like a LOT of women I know! 

But no, the owner and creator of Miss Pretty Perfect is La Toya, a woman with not one, but TWO degrees in fashion design.  She received a B.S. in Fashion Design and Merchandising from N.C. A&T State University in 1999. And in 2002, she received her A.A.S in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design in New York City.  Designing, creating, and selling her own line of handbags began in New York City and eventually returned her home to North Carolina.  The Miss Pretty Perfect line of handbags are made of upholstery fabric, patchwork and leather combinations. Now that she offers her line on Etsy, we can all admire, and purchase, her quality, gorgeous bags - no matter where we live.

Now, we all know some women who are shoe addicts, but my husband says I am a bag addict! I love bags; totes, hobos, satchels, week-enders...gotta have 'em.  So here are some of my favs from Miss Pretty Perfect's Etsy store!

Although officially called the Perfect Village Over sized Round Messenger Bag, this bag is also described as "the perfect 'everything' bag for the weekend gypsy".  Gotta love it!

Now say hello to Miss Lotti, Over sized Leather Tote Handmade Handbag. This beautiful leather patchwork bag will get you through anything!

Do you need a little bag, one to hold just a few essentials?  But don't want to skimp on color and style?  Check out this little number!  Miss Nina Petite Messenger Pouch in Juicy Grape Raspberries.  Five different patterned and textured variations of purple, red, fuchsia, lime, orange and blue are featured in this Miss Nina. Yum!

If you want to pick out your own favs, you can visit Miss Pretty Perfect in her Etsy store or visit her online gallery on Picasa.
