WHO: Designer Susan Alexandra
WHY: DIYs, you DI-don't, thank you very much. Luckily NYC-based designer Susan Alexandra does. And at a much higher level. Her kitsch-meets-cool line is the stuff handmade dreams are, well, made. The beaded bags and wallets feature fruits (like watermelons, citrus, and berries) and patterns (such as block, animal, and checkerboard prints) to make you smile. There's even an entire line of kid-friendly barrettes and earrings for the perfect mom and daughter matchy-matchy moment. Which will make you and your mini me the apple of everyone's eve . FYI.
