This Handbag Is Major

I am serious about handbags. I name them and buff them with a baby diaper. #Truth. Let me introduce you to my favorite new handbag designer, von Holzhausen.


Malibu-based designer Vicki von Holzhausen spent years designing for Mercedes Benz and Audi before bringing her savvy to accessories. And it’s a mega win. I met Vicki in April at a luncheon for the brand and I was knocked out.

Why are these bags so special?



  • They are made of a Technik-Leather that you simply cannot stain, tear, or ruin

    (Trust me, I tried. My white bag is STILL white. All stains wipe off. For a stubborn stain, use a little ivory bar soap. Gone.)



  • Light, as in not heavy

    (Your shoulders won’t buckle under the weight of your awesome bag.)

  • Chic styles and perfect colors for fall

    (If you don’t want to rock white in fall and winter, check out the navy, burgundy, and black.)

  • Moderate price point

    (Nope, not cheap, but all under $500. Way less than other luxury handbags and built to last. Follow them on Instagram for surprise sales, sometimes up to 50% off.)


  • A portion of proceeds benefit Hope Gardens in Los Angeles

    (Hope Gardens is focused on helping women regain independence through long-term rehabilitation programs and support services.)
