Run on for a long time

One thing I both love and find challenging about my job is properly testing products. What size laptop can I fit in here? Does it fit a large cell phone, not just an iPhone? Is this pocket layout user friendly? Is this material nice, durable, and fits the quality standards of our brand? I have a few things I have tested, from carrying a backpack to Vegas and back, to these new women's bags. While this is just a sample, I need to make sure that everything is right before we go into production, which means carrying things myself, or allowing someone else in the company to carry them. I do love being able to see my designs through from the beginning like this, and I cannot wait to get this and the two other ladies' designs on my drawing board out.

The process is a long one though, and I doubt I'll see this come to market before 2013 comes. This is my personal favorite of the bunch. The braided handle is my favorite part, I was definitely inspired by the Alexa bag on that one.

I got this dress at Target over the weekend. What can I say? I have a thing for teal. And this belt seems to be made for this dress, yes?
