Meet Donna!

Graduation season is upon us! As the mother of two children who are barely out of diapers, I don’t often have graduation ceremonies to attend. However, this year, my beautiful niece, Kylie, graduated from DePaul University with a degree in marketing. She begins her first job at an advertising firm in just a few weeks, and I am so excited to see where her dreams take her.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a graduation, without a graduation party…for which presents are a must! I wanted to get Kylie something special, something as unique and beautiful as her—but also something she could use in her next adventure as a career woman.

I decided to design a Donna bag for her, which is a fashionable tote that can easily fit her laptop, and also has separate compartments to hold everything from pens to a planner to business cards. I wanted to choose bold colors which would really pop next to her business attire, so I chose Blushing Bride for the exterior of her bag, and Wild Poppy Sateen for the top and base.

Of course, I had to make the bag a little more feminine to suit Kylie’s tastes, so I chose War of the Roses for the fabric straps. Now, she has the perfect bag, and the rest is up to her—but I know she will make us all proud!
