A Party For A Real Housewife's Really Cute Bag Line

Gretchen Rossi is one of my favorite Real Housewives. A few months ago, I interviewed her for A Sweat Life and I’ve been loving on her Gretchen Christine handbag line for a while now. So, I was super excited to attend the Gretchen Christine PopUpParty™ at Impressions in West Hollywood. So many celebs showed up to support her including Peggy Sulahian, Ashley Fargo, Beril Ackay, Lisa Arasheben, Craig Ramsay (From Bravo’s Newlyweds and my podcast), Caitlin O’Conner, Rachel McCord, Ali Levine and Emilia McCarthy. And yes, if you were wondering, Gretchen is absolutely beautiful, nice, and super tiny in person.

It was also great to see all of the Gretchen Christine handbags IRL. I was really surprised because we all know celeb fashion lines are either amazing or a complete disaster. Luckily, the first description applies to this one. Photos don’t really do it justice. Furthermore, every accessory comes with bonus karma points because they are made of vegan leather. 

Impressions also carries her new luggage line, which will basically make everyone at the airport jealous of you. Seriously, not kidding. Keep your eyes on your GC at the baggage claim because people will be tripping over themselves to steal it from you. My favorite bag is the Voyageur Matelassé in White Marble.

Made of quilted nylon and vegan leather, it has 360° spin roller wheels and a bumper-guard at the base. It is sold as a set with a matching purse, which is so cute it almost shouldn't be allowed. You can carry it separately or slide into the trolley handle when you are running through the airport in heels trying not to miss your flight (or is that just me?). The silver clasp also makes it easy to open and close, which is important if you are doing last minute airport shopping (and by if, I mean when). The modern marble print is so clean looking and really stands out. I really want one of these for myself (hint, hint, Gretchen, please swag me out, girl).

Gretchen also debuted her collab nail polish with Twila True. This line has a 5 free formula, which means it doesn’t contain camphor, DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and toluene. But more importantly, the colors are absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait to see what Grethen does next.
