Dot is my latest design. My favorite one yet. I designed it to be perfect for me, but I thought you might like it too.
First of all, I wanted a bag that would coordinate with almost anything. It had to be cute and fun, yet sophisticated and chic, modern with a touch of vintage. The answer: polka dots!
I also added some extra touches, like interfacing in the lining for more stability, and a divided pocket so I can put my phone in one side and my lipstick and lip gloss in the other side.
I name each of my designs after a lovely lady in my family tree or my husband's family tree. This one is no exception. Dot was my great-aunt. My grandfather's sister on my mom's side. Her name was Dorothy, but she was known to all as simply "Dot". She was the sweetest lady you would ever meet.
You will find this new Dot bag in my etsy shop . You will find a similar one on my shoulder. And coming soon: more Dots in different colors and different sized polka dots.
