plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

One of the good things that has come out of me starting this blog (out of the many), is that my friends are always on the lookout for things for me to blog about.  They always want me to have fresh content – which I LOVE and appreciate.

A friend from high school, who got engaged not to long ago, sent me the link to 1154 Lill Studio.  Now, I bookmarked this site a while back with the intention of blogging about it to you all, but in all the hoopla of the fantastic things I find on a daily basis, it completely slipped my mind.  That is, until she sent me a message about it.

1154 Lill Studio has revolutionized the handbag/tote industry.  The shop gives you the opportunity to completely customize a handbag, clutch, tote, etc.  Not only that, but you can customize everything down to what the pattern is for the lining.


My favorite is the above clutch, called Erinn. You can pick the fabric for the top band, the rest of the bag, and the lining, giving you the opportunity to choose up to three different fabrics in their collection. And, my favorite of their fabrics is Red Rocks.

These bags make great gifts for anyone – moms, friends, etc.  So, if you haven’t been there already, check out their site and play around with their options! You’ll probably find something for yourself or a friend (and with the holidays around the corner – these would make great holiday gifts)!


  1. Love it! My sister and I go to the one in KC almost every time I am there. Expensive habit though.

  2. I just love it when a bag has a bright contrasting lining!

  3. I just went there with my sis and mom a few weekends ago – it was so much fun!

    The one in Chicago is on my fave street to shop, Armitage at Halsted. I couldn’t recommend this place anymore!!!
