Living a Dream - A BESTeam Feature

If you know fashion, then you know the heart of America's fashion industry beats in New York City, which recently became the home of La Toya Stevens, aka MissPrettyPerfect, and the heart behind the BESTeam on Etsy. Holding two degrees in fashion design, a B.S. in Fashion Design and Merchandising from N.C. A&T State University and an A.A.S in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design in New York City, La Toya had also spent a number of years working for a private label handbag designer, and prior to founding MissPrettyPerfect in 2007, you may have seen her handiwork in such stores as Henri Bendel's, Bloomingdales and Fred Segal's.

MissPrettyPerfect currently has a small, but distinguished selection of handbags as well as a piece or two of La Toya's beautifully designed fashions. Whether you're looking for a smaller clutch, an average sized day-to-day purse, or a larger bag that will take on whatever you need room for, La Toya has a design in mind for you!

Need a small but bold and colorful wristlet pouch for that special evening out? How about this Miss Rosa Gathered Wristlet in Tuitti-Fruitti? I love the warm energy of the autumn colors and the texture of the materials La Toya used in this design.

I personally like having a larger bag for day-to-day use, so when I saw the Dr. Quinn Travel Bag in African Mudcloth, I thought it might be perfect for someone who, like me, appreciates the roominess of a somewhat oversized bag. I think the dramatic mudcloth print exudes confidence too! Definitely a bag that will make others sit up and take notice!


Stylish. Sleek. Sophisticated. That's how La Toya describes her leather Rebecca Travel Work Bag, which she offers in colors customized to meet your preferences. I have to agree with her description, although I think I would add another "s" - for spacious! With a total of 14 pockets and a removable shoulder strap that allows you to use this as a tote or across the body shoulder bag, you'll have room to carry all of your office needs or even a weekend's worth of gear for that last minute getaway!


You can learn more about La Toya's journey into the world of fashion design as well as previewing her new designs and finding out about special offers by following MissPrettyPerfect on her blog and on facebook!
