MELISSA

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?

I designed this bag because the shape was very round and unique. I decided to choose this style of leather because I like luxe items. I am also very colorful, so I needed something to represent ME!


What does your bag say about you?

My bag says that I am a risk taker. It is a bold and beautiful accessory.


Who are you?

I AM a Style Curator! 


Have you always been you or did you grow into yourself?

I have always known who I was and who I wanted to be.


What's a fault you enjoy about yourself?

Not sure…. Let me get back to you on that.


When was the last time you rebelled?

I would say the last time I rebelled was yesterday. I am very rebellious, so it is a common occurrence for me.


Is there a quote or motto that you live by?

“Wear what you want or die trying.”


What are some things you do to celebrate yourself? 

I like to take myself out to dinner or explore something new in the city.


How does Laudi Vidni help you tell your story as a unique, one-of-a-kind person?

Their bags allow you to tell your narrative through your unique style.


What event in life has shaped you most as a person?

I would say that moving from New York back to the Midwestern and starting my own business shaped me as a person.
