Crazy For Crossbodies

Color your world with embroidered, one-of-a-kind purse straps from Carla Valencia Design.

The mere thought of a monochrome wardrobe makes you want to nod off in boredom. 

Keep your love of color and more-is-more embellishment alive, thanks to Carla Valencia Design (popping up in San Antonio—see below). The supremely cool hand-embroidered designs, a work of love by Carla (a Houston fashion editor turned designer) and her father Carlos, are head-turners. The duo creates unique and customized, monogrammed, one-of-a-kind purse straps to upgrade your most beloved (or most tired) bags. From a gorgeous Gucci turned up with bone-colored fringe and tassels to patterned straps with choice phrases threaded through - like the one celebrated New Orleans artist Ashley Longshore couldn't resist - you'll be carrying some major fashion moments with you on the daily (see how it works below). 

It's everything hue have dreamed about.
