I’m so excited the day has come to release this post. Let me tell you, this has been a labor of love all for you, my readers. Over the past six weeks, I’ve reached out to some of my favorite handbag designers to see what’s new for this season. They sent me their favorite, beautiful bags for me to style and shoot, to give you some fall outfit inspiration as well as fall in love with their beautiful creations. Read on to see some of the coolest designs from some of my favorite designers and makers!
CASEY CURTIS DESIGNS.
I’ve followed Casey Curtis on Instagram for awhile, and her work has always caught my eye. I was so thrilled to see the piece she sent me to model was the piece I had my eye on! This beautiful shoulder bag is made from a repurposed boot and has tons of character to go around. I specifically couldn’t get over the matching turquoise fringe which really takes any outfit to the next level!
Casey also makes beautiful wallets and jewelry, so make sure you look further than her gorgeous bags! I can truly say her pieces are one-of-a-kind and not easily replicated. Every piece has a little something different to offer and she finds inspiration in repurposing old western pieces into something new, which I totally love. Go check out her Instagram for your share of unique western accessories!

LONG X TRADING CO.
When I took this bag out of the package, I was instantly in love. I’m such a sucker for big, statement handbags and this one has enough wow-factor to go around, let me tell you. This bag is from the personal collection of Stephanie Schmidt, the co-owner of Long X. The white angora is luxurious and has enough style to pump up even a basic jeans and tee outfit.
For those of you who are familiar with Long X, you know they’re known for their outstanding leather work. While the bag itself is a stunner, don’t miss the tooled leather strap that really takes this piece westbound in a hurry. They also do fabulous tooled pieces like shoes, blazers and accessories. The best part is, they do custom work too – make sure to check them out!

Vintage Boho specializes in customization of Louis Vuitton bags, and it couldn’t be a bigger trend right now. LV bags are super popular but what could be better than having one that reflects your individual style while loading on the western flair? Michelle can customize your LV for you, or you can buy one she’s already worked her magic on – it’s up to you!
This Louis Vuitton crossbody bag is the perfect accessory for walking around Vegas this December or carrying the essentials to a concert while still looking crazy-stylish. The fringe and turquoise concho really set this classic bag off and make it a staple in any western fashionista’s closet.

STONE FEATHER ROAD.
If you guys have been following my blog and/or Instagram lately, you know my obsession with Stone Feather Road is so real. The owner Paula Lorenz designs all of her cowhide bags and each one is one-of-a-kind. This particular bag is cut from a champagne acid wash hide with a fun print. The colors in this bag go so well with the burgundy’s – brown’s – olive’s – orange’s of fall and can be dressed up or down.
This tote is called the “Destination” bag because of its size. You can fit everything but the kitchen sink in here and it’s still lightweight and easy to carry. I carry mine from rodeos to business trips to everything in between. This bag is truly unique, not to be found anywhere else!
