Designer studded clutches and hobos with fringe maybe the hot purses to be toting around for fall.

But before you splurge on that gotta-have-it couture bag, take a trip to Sassy BB or log on to their website and be a purse designer for day.

The design-your-own-purse boutique in Ft.Lauderdale lets you choose over 20 different styles, fabrics and prints.

“Customers design their own purse by selecting their style of purse, fabric, handles and closures. We do all of the sewing and complete the purse within 2 weeks,” said owner Kerry Szymanski.

Whoever you are or whatever you do, the boutique has a bag for every woman.

From new mommies needing a fashion savvy diaper bag to the glamazon looking for a sexy evening purse to pet owners needing a multi-functional doggie bag to store their pooches' essentials.

“Each purse is named after a dance to give it a little more of a personality,” said Szymanski.

Some purses to choose from are the Electric Slide which is a messenger bag, the Twist which is ideal for schlepping your yoga mat and the Jazz, the perfect everyday slouchy hobo.

Sewing lessons classes are available for ladies who really want a D-I-Y bag and gals with a competitive streak can also partake in Sassy BB’s Project Runway event where the best bag wins.
