|The Angie Mini|
I also got to interview Andrea, the founder and designer behind amarie. She is the one who creates all of these beautiful handbags in luxurious colors, pretty wristlets, and posh clutches which come custom made!

Here are my questions and Andrea's answers:
Me: How did you come up with the name of your brand?
Andrea: My name is Andrea Marie, so I combined the "A" with "marie" and voila!
Me: Which of your designs is your favorite?
Andrea: I have to say the Angie Mini tote is my favorite. It's such a great everyday bag that you can fit everything you need into. The braided handle is different from your typical handbag and it is also very comfortable on the shoulder - as is the bags light weight.
Me: Which celebrity would you most want to design/make a handbag for?
Andrea: It's a toss-up between Anne Hathaway and Carrie Underwood. Both women are so classy and have impeccable style. The opportunity to design a custom red carpet clutch would be amazing.
Me: What do most people say when they first see your products?
Andrea: People mention how unique the pieces are and how they love the prints and the stand-out color combinations.
Me: Do you plan on opening a storefront someday?
Andrea: I would love to one day own my own storefront and make other kinds of products eventually like dresses and other accessories.
Me: When did you start making handbags, clutches and wristlets?
Andrea: I started making the clutches first in 2005, the wristlets in 2006 and the totes were born in fall of 2007.
Me: Do you ship your products worldwide?
Andrea: Yes, we do!
Me: Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
Andrea: We love making custom clutches for special events and weddings! If you have a dress or bridal party that you would like custom colors/fabrics/designs for, please send us an email at
