Joanie Totes

Today is the official launch of Joanie Totes!!  The ‘Be Fancy & Fabulous’ Joanie Tote was designed in honor of my beautiful mother, who I affectionately call “Joanie”.  Over the summer, Joanie was diagnosed with a rare, life threatening autoimmune blood disorder, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP), that took her life within four months.

Joanie and I shared a love of accessories, so I am designing a line of handbags as a tribute to her.  I collaborated with the incredibly talented Jennifer Lilya, a fashion illustrator who is always in high demand, to bring my vision to life.  Joanie Totes are available as a limited edition item (Price: $65.00) exclusively sold through my store, shop.handbagreport.com.

The mission behind Joanie Totes is to raise TTP awareness…one bag at a time.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Joanie Tote will benefit the Answering TTP Foundation (www.answeringttp.org)
