Craft The Clutch Of Your Dreams On This Cool New Site

Sure, you know the drill: You fall hard for a covetable carryall, only to find one teensy detail standing in the way of perfection. Whether the zipper is blah, or you find the color of the lining a bit lackluster — that one "if only" is always a total bag bummer. Sound familiar? Well, apparently the peeps over at Essex can empathize.
Mario Nieto and Glynn Connolly, the innovative founders of the L.A.-based e-tailer, Essex, have found a way around those subtle switch-a-roos, with a customized purse-making program. Yep, you can craft the clutch of your dreams on their sweet new site. (How did they know it’s pretty much always been our dream to play handbag designer for a day?).
Choose from a variety of eye-catching patterns from bold to basic — we're all over the galaxy print with the green zipper — and go to town. Click through our slideshow to see some stellar mash-ups, and then go play around with your own cool combos!
