Adjustable-Length Collections

<Whimsical Designs Collections>


Many of my collections have adjustable-length straps - perfect for wearing over the shoulder or across the body. The Ashley Ann, Bryana Rose, Gypsy Rose, LaBella, Roberto, and Sarah Ann are my adjustable-length collections. In addition, I also have a Laptop/Overnight bag that features an adjustable strap.

Ashley Ann

Whimsical Designs Ashley Ann CollectionThis collection is named after my middle daughter, Ashley. The size of this bag is 12-inches by 12-inches with a 3-inch gusset. All four corners are decorated with coordinating fabric. Some have a fixed 24-inch strap and some have an adjustable (50-inch) strap that allows the purse to be worn across the body or over the shoulder. The purse has a large front flap with a magnetic closure. All Ashley Ann bags are lined with silks and taffetas and have 5-6 interior pockets.

Bryana Rose

Whimsical Designs by Ann Bryanna Rose CollectionThis collection is named after my youngest daughter, Bryana. The shape is a half moon measuring 12-inches high by 34-inches wide at the widest part. This bag features a 24-inch strap or an adjustable (50-inch) strap that allows you to carry the bag across the body or over the shoulder. It features a large front flap with a magnetic closure and 4-6 inside pockets. The standout feature is the many different fabrics and embellishments that are featured on each bag.

Gypsy Rose

Whimsical Designs by Ann Gypsy Rose CollectionThe Gypsy Rose Collection is a mixed ambience of Bohemian Gypsy and Victorian. My Shabby Chic bags are ivory, whites, and soft colors, combining tattered delicates, ruffles, laces, and a soft romantic blend of vintage and new fabrics. My Victorian bags are in dark, rich colors, and both styles have a passion for old laces, tattered delicates, and have a unique "romantic" personality. They are over the top embellished with antique pins, buckles, buttons, and keys - all lovingly hand or machine-stitched. Both the mini (10-inches wide, 11-inches high) and regular size (14-inches wide, 14-inches high) Shabby Chic and Victorian have a drawstring closure and a strap that can be worn over the shoulder or across the body. They all have a pocket on the outside back to hold your phone or keys. The mini bag has one inside pocket and the regular size has 4-5 pockets inside. My wish is that one of these unique romantic bags captures and embraces your romantic side!




Laptop / Overnight Bag

Whimsical Designs by Ann Laptop/Overnight CollectionUrban Chic! Add pizazz to your commute! My lightweight messenger bag is sturdy enough to haul your laptop and keep your daily must-haves organized, or to go with you on an overnight stay with plenty of room to carry the essentials. These bags are made of georgeous vintage needlepoint designs that I have collected while traveling South to Florida and throughout New England. They all have a story to tell and are a topic of conversation! The fabrics have mellowed over time and have earned "smile lines" and character. Some I've had for years but didn't have the heart to cut the needlepoint down to a smaller size - thus, the laptop/overnight bag was born! These vintage needle pieces are paired with upcycled and new fabrics, all coming together harmoniously. There is still a lot of vim and vigor left in these fabrics and will be a wonderful companion for your adventures. The laptop/overnight bag measures 14-inches high by 21-inches wide, with a 3-inch gusset. It features a double hand-held strap, as well as a strong, detachable, comfortable, over-the-shoulder/cross body strap. There is a zipper closure with outside and inside pockets. All are embellished with vintage treasures and a skeleton key zipper pull.


Whimsical Designs by Ann Roberto CollectionThe Roberto is named after my loving father, Robert, who passed away on August 30, 2011. I'm sure he is laughing in heaven to have a bag named after him! The Roberto measures 7-inches wide by 5-inches high, with a 2½-3-inch gusset. It has a front flap with a magnetic closure. The strap is adjustable with the longest length of 51-inches, which can be worn across the body or shortened to wear as a shoulder bag. This bag is plenty big to put your phone, wallet, and lipstick to go to the market, theater, or a wedding - depending on the bag you choose!

Sarah Ann

Whimsical Designs by Ann Sarah CollectionThe Sarah is named after my daughter's best friend Sarah Ansini, who has bought a bag from every collection. She is a fashionista! This bag measures 19-inches wide at the bottom and 13-inches at the top, with an adjustable strap, which can be worn across the body or over the shoulder. It has five inside pockets and a front flap with a magnetic closure.
