Finally!! I don't have to drag my purse with me everywhere I go! The Bucklette is a hands-free fashion accessory, made for women who don't always want to carry a handbag but need the essentials - perfect for a night on the town, a kids' play date or a day of shopping. There are two versions: a belt buckle that comes with a belt and a compact clip-on. Both versions are designed to hold a lipstick, key, credit card and ID. The Bucklette is sharply designed, made in the USA, crafted from recyclable, lead-free metal and comes packaged in a reusable jewelry bag. I love the Bucklette because it's functional fashion! The Bucklette is available for purchase at select retailers and online at www.bucklette.com.
The Bucklette was created and designed by Sandra Alexander, a Philadelphia-based graphic designer, artist, entrepenuer and founder of Dessa Lea Productions. While single and living in Center City Philadelphia, Alexander was always on the go. Frequently running from work to a night out, she learned a quick change of clothes and "just the essentials" were necessary - lipstick, money, ID and house key. Rather than a cumbersome handbag, Alexander carried a wristlet or under-the-shoulder bag, but it typically ended up sitting on a table, hanging on a chair or on the floor. While at a restaurant one evening, a friend's purse was stolen, inspiring Alexander to create an accessory that would free women from the worry and inconvenience of carrying "the bag".
Located in Philadelphia, Dessa Lea Productions is principally involved in the design, development and launch of unique women's fashion accessories that add style to their wardrobes and convenience to their lives.
