Lucia Bella Giveaway! [CLOSED]

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Hey lovelies! I have stumbled upon one of the most fabulous etsy shops! Lucia Bella Handbags & Accessories! Her shop includes beautiful handmade purses, clips, and headbands! I was thrilled when Julie from LB was interested in doing a giveaway with my blog!

1.) Tell us a little about Lucia Bella Fine Handbags & Accessories.
Lucia Bella hair accessories range from soft bohemian florals to decadent rhinestones and feather glamour. The handbags in the line are made with Italian leathers, bold colors and soft silhouettes. I started the Lucia Bella line several years ago with hair accessories followed by handbags.

2.) What type of girl do you envision wearing your handbags and accessories?I think there is something in the Lucia Bella line for any girl! For the girls who like to mix and match like me, there are plenty of choices to incorporate into your daily outfits. Hair accessory wise, I have refined smaller rhinestone headbands, and also larger, sparkling center of attention pieces. For those that love a more organic look, flower hair clips and halos give a natural and sweet vibe. The selections of the Lucia Bella handbags can suite varied tastes as some have fringe, some have studs, snakeskin, etc.

3.) What inspires your designs?
Definitely my own style, my love of couture, vintage, and fashion. I can be inspired by anything really - a photograph, a feeling, my friends. I have a great collection of fashion magazines that my Mom started a long time ago and I have added some of my personal favorites to the group over the years. They have so many beautiful images that influence my creativity. I love street style photos and blogs. People put together the most amazing and authentic outfits and it’s impossible not be inspired by that.

4.) Can you offer us any tips on accessorizing with your headbands and/or your handbags?
What I love about the accessories in the collection is that they are versatile. They can be worn casually or they can be dressed up. Since I also work as a buyer for a boutique, I have a little bit more fashion freedom in my daily job outfits. The other day, I wore a little black lace dress with the Lucia Bella Ballerina flower halo that I pinned up as a regular headband. When I want to add some glam to jeans, a blazer, and knee high boots, I wear a rhinestone headband like Madison or Athena for a little sparkle.

I am a firm believer of wearing what you want to wear as long as it makes you feel beautiful and comfortable! But every once in a while, I think you should take a personal style risk. If you are drawn to something, but it isn’t your usual look, wear it anyway and you might find that it is your style after all.

5.) What's your own personal style like?
My personal style is definitely a mix and is altered a bit on a daily basis depending on the mood I am in. I do incorporate a lot of bohemian touches, but it’s blended with sophisticated, classic pieces. I love wearing different textures and prints to add dimension to a look. I also gravitate towards clothing and accessories that have an element of drama as well, but are still wearable. My boyfriend once described my style as “romantic with an edge”, which I thought was impressive coming from a guy who is not preoccupied with fashion!
