What: Freddy&Ma Sample Sale
Why: I like the idea of being crafty or creative more that the actual act. My attempts at personalization, first with puffy paints and then with the too liberal use of my prized bedazzler, taught me to leave designing to the professionals. Which is why (though I’m sure many of you could stylishly customize your own bag at Freddy&Ma) I rejoice when their professionally-designed bags go on sale.
