February 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #60: Personalized Accessories For Splurging

Tip of the Week


Got a lot of cash on hand and don’t mind spending it? Here are some ideas for personalized accessories if you’re looking to splurge.

Custom fashion design kit – Got a young fashion designer in the house who would love to design her own accessories? Get her a custom fashion design kit to create her own designer handbag. FAO Schwarz offers a kit by Imagine This that allows budding designers to work with a design portfolio full of swatches and templates. Once she’s given the handbag her creative seal of approval, the designers at Imagine This turn her design into an actual handbag. The cost? It’s a mere $400.

Bling Cases – Want to make your cell phone, PDA or iPod into instant bling? Get custom Swarovski crystal faceplates made. If you have a Motorola phone, spend a hundred bucks to cover it in bling. For a Blackberry, $170 will have your PDA shiny and sparkling in no time. Let’s Crystal It covers your coveted electronic equipment in Swarovski crystals by hand with a sturdy adhesive.

Custom made shoes – Want to design your own shoes from scratch? When Manolo Blahnik just won’t do, have custom made shoes designed just the way you want them. Have your feet measured, go through a design consultation and select the fabrics, heels and any buckles or trim. Pasquale Di Fabrizio and Grisha’s, both located in Los Angeles, will custom make shoes in a range of styles for you. Prices start at a few hundred dollars for these personalized accessories. But for most shoes, expect to pay much more.
