Handbag Heaven


I’ve spent an evening salivating over a pair of boots I saw at the mall…or pouting over an outfit I could not walk away with…but never have I given a second thought to a purse. Until now. Last week I discovered a purse that I just cannot stop thinking about….in fact, the whole line I saw was breathtaking by designer Betty Audish.  She has been creating handbags for ten years from exquisite Spanish-textured leathers.

My favorite!

 Betty holds a fashion design degree from CEDIM in Monterrey, Mexico and developed the leather handbag collection in honor of her mother, Ofelia. She says her mother was a timeless, classic lady who was a huge supporter of Betty’s career which actually began in 1988 with clothing design.

Betty’s sister helps her dispaly these popular bow clutches.

She does have advice for women entrepreneurs:

1. Do What You Love

2. Make sure from day one you hire bookkeeping services

3. Hire a good service for website design. She likes www.photobiz.com

4. Start small and focus on doing one thing really well

Currently, her favorite design is a crocodile bag she calls “Dulce” inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In her upcoming spring collection, her favorite is a python bag of matte mint called “Gloria.” In San Antonio, her collections can be found at Julian Gold, 4109 McCullough Ave. 78212.

Betty’s Favorites:
Judy – Python

  1. Hi Pam, welcome to my world! I love handbags and think about them WAY too often. I really like this yellow bag you've shown here and I'm not usually a fan of yellow. But it's just gorgeous, I'm drooling! I started a new holiday job at Bloomingdale's and am so behind on everything but had to come say hello to you here. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! XO, Jill

  2. Pam, these are GORGEOUS! The southwestern vibe of them is wonderful! I'll have to check out her site! Did you walk away with one of these beauties? Hugs! ~Serene

  3. One thing I would love to have is a croc or alligator bag. It is one of my dreams, but I will probably never have one. Betty's bags look gorgeous. I have alist of about 5 things that I would love to have if I ever win the lottery and the bag is on the list.

  4. THANK YOU SO MUCH for featuring my blog on your sidebar Pam, how fitting that you chose a picture of my blue sparkly bag to feature! I'm a total bag nut and I love these that you've posted – especially the yellow one *sigh*

    Am finally following you now, you've posted some lovely comments on my blog :))) I've had a flush of new followers recently and have taken a while to return the favour and read their blogs back! I'll come back again soon, I love the whole Feeling 40 thing you have going on!

  5. Oh, my gosh these bags are amazing, my husband will not be happy that I starred this post because that means I will be searching a way to purchase a bag, I am thinking Christmas is right around the corner!!!
