You may have witnessed this scene before. A woman with a handbag addiction standing with her hands up, clinging to the door frame that’s helping to keep her steady in an attempt to show off her collection of handbags. It’s pretty. It’s real. It’s Kristy Lash, the Handbag Hottie exposing the high-end handbags that she now designs and sells. She is on FIRE!
Handbag Hottie-Kristy Lash exposes her continuing addiction to handbags with several of the hand-made leather bags from her own designer handbag collection-The Kristy Bag by CG which debuted in the USA in 2014.
It’s quite a change from this two-year-old photo, which was taken by Liz Hoegg, for a story about Kristy and her handbag collection even before she and her business partner Dave Crabtree had collaborated on developing The Kristy Bag. Here is the before photo of Kristy with her collection of other well-known designer handbags about a year prior to the creation of The Kristy Bag by CG.
Kristy Lash is a self-proclaimed “Girly-girl”who has a passion for handbags.
We refer to Kristy as the Handbag Hottie because she’s the spark that lit the fire which created a heat wave in handbag design. Her design details such as the trend-setting eye-glass sling seen on the outside of her handbags, the Stitch-in-Nine special stitching detail that she applies to the handbag handles and her luxurious “Lining-a-la-Lash” (soft pigskin inside lining) are just a few things that keep fanning the flames!

As Kristy and her business partner Dave Crabtree come up on one year in business together they continue to create and set new trends. Their colors creations are causing a big stir with designers and their natural-colored, naked veg tanned handbags are getting even more head-turning looks wherever they are seen.

With all the heat that this post built up, I must leave you with a “splash of water” to cool off with! More about what’s on the inside of this totally unique bagette will be coming up next post!
The unique finish on this very special bagette gives a reflective quality with blue and green tones underneath. The inside holds an interesting story.
