AMANDA

Who are you?
I'm a Southern girl in a Chicago world and am a marketing professional by day in addition to being a content creator and founder of The Creative Brief Blog. I'm a wife to my husband, Kollin, and a dog-mom to our corgi, Wrigley.

What does it mean to be one of a kind?
To truly embrace who you are and find the best parts of yourself to share with the world. To not apologize for it and to not change for others.

What event in life has shaped you most as a person, and how?
Moving to Chicago and traveling has really shaped me by showing me how the world around me works. Experiencing the people, food, and cultures of other countries and places I've been has helped me to understand and appreciate so much.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
I selected the Brio Bucket Bag Mini. I loved the style of the bag and the size. I chose the navy smooth leather and paired it with the leopard print for a pop of print. I've always wanted a navy bag, but hadn't found the silhouette that matched this unique style - until now!

Have you always been you or did you grow into yourself?
I have always been me at my core, but parts of my personality and character have grown as I've gotten older. Through friendships, starting my blog and the experiences I've had I grew into who I am today.

How would you describe your personal style?
I would say I’m a combination of girly with a bit of edge. I love a high heel, but paired with ripped jeans or a ruffled dress and leather jacket. I love neutrals and easy basics you can actually wear everyday, but with that added touch of something glam.
