Sink or Swim Purses – Handmade Perfection!

When I discovered that Sink or Swim Purses existed on Instagram, it was love at first sight. The shapes, the colors, the glitter — they had me, hook, line and sinker. Nope, there was no undoing this love affair I was having over the internet with these purses.

What drew me in were the designs. The lines and the curves were a perfect compliment to the retro era. I had never seen purses made quite like this before.

After my initial infatuation was over with, I decided to find out where these pretty babies lived, and was it even possible for me to get a hold of one! That’s when I discovered something even more amazing about Sink or Swim: they are handmade, right here in the USA, in Chicago, IL. So, they are not just a beautiful handbag, but something made with love from a small business owner.

Stop teasing me, already!!

A wonderful thing happened at Beatersville 2015. I got to meet the designer of Sink or Swim Purses, and I also got to meet these incredible creations in person!

Walking into this tent of wonder was like walking into a fantasy-land where all your handbag wishes come true; all those purses I had drooled over were right here in front of me. So many different colors, styles, sizes, and custom options available — surely this was a dream. Adorable clutches with a wrist strap, atomic style handbags with the option to carry by hand or over the shoulder, and gorgeous larger bags — large enough to carry your entire pinup kit with you. You absolutely could do no wrong in picking one (or two!) of these out for yourself.

Every last detail went into consideration with these purses. The construction and craftsmanship of each one is a true work of art. Sink or Swim is now even designing completely unique, one of a kind purses in her Coupe line. I had the pleasure of seeing these in real life at Nashville Boogie, and let me tell you — they are far more beautiful in person! Photos do not do them justice.

I am beyond thrilled to say that I own my very own piece of retro purse heaven in the shape of “Fuel Pump” in a fantastic shade of lime green! And, the matching sunglasses case is just the perfect accessory for my accessory 😉
