Lucy Grey lets its customers play designer by draping and shaping beautiful fabrics and details into a plethora of pristine purses. Choose from a catalog of different shapes, fabrics, and festive flourishes, such as extra straps, floral clips, and miniature chihuahuas to live in and guard the finished product. Most bags start from around $30 to $129, and may range upward from there depending on fabric choice and other options. After the design blueprints are carved in stone, the handbags are craftily constructed in the United States by Keebler elves pursuing midlife career changes. Finished purses, clutches, and totes include random acts of kindness—messages that suggest a charitable act for the purchaser to accomplish, blog about, and then pass to another Good Samaritan.
The compact Tiny Dancer handbag, named after the Elton John song “Honky Cat,” was created for active ladies who tire of digging through Mary Poppins–sized rucksacks to find their phones. The fun starts at the design page, where a click on the Tiny Dancer picture (the second bag from the left on the top row) leads to a festive fabric selection, with about 40 flavors waiting to adorn the new portmanteau. Polish the Tiny Dancer with a flourish of flora by selecting a silk bloom ($8) addition that easily attaches to personalize purses, pin back free-spirited ringlets, or inconspicuously conceal squid-ink stains on lace tentacles.
