About the Designer: "Poppie Harris missed a call from her agent, again. She was tired of digging for her phone at the bottom of her bag - so she took action. The 26-year-old actress and designer created her own poppiebag, and a few for her friends -big enough for a cell phone, credit card and lipgloss but small enough to hang on a purse strap or belt. No sooner had she finished her first samples, though, did she get her first order. "I was at my doctor's office, and the women in the waiting room noticed my poppiebag. They wanted to know if it came in fuchsia or periwinkle." She knew she was on to something that day when she came home with a stack of orders for bags she didn't have. After getting production lined up, she got interest from boutiques and stores and before six months were up, she was represented throughout the country including boutiques in the Bay Area, New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas and major department stores Henri Bendel and Bergdorf Goodman in New York and Barneys in New York and Los Angeles." These bags are fabulous for students, editors, celebrities, stay at home moms, or really any fashionista who has a fetish for purses. Go check them out today! The Poppie Bags start at $300 and come in faux Croc, Snakeskin, decorative Floral Print, or simple leather and are available in colors like Pink, Black, Platinum, Eggplant, Navy, White, Ruby Red, Chocolate, Latte, and Gold.
