California native, Nikki Erwin, looked to her coastal upbringing for inspiration in creating Donatienne handbags. Saturations of blues and greens from the ocean, yellows from sun bleached hair, pinks and purples from childhood beach towels. Nikki has had a long love affair with handbags, constantly on the hunt for the perfect bag that can be worn day and night, a mix of functionality combined with stunning aesthetic. No longer having to search, Nikki created what she has always looked for, with Donatienne – her line of vibrantly colored, fun and functional handbags. Find out more about Nikki’s current obsessions!
ONE. Iro Leather Jacket — These days I can’t get dressed without my Iro motorcycle jacket. Feeling super cool and high fashion at the same time is an irreplaceable feeling and this jacket does that for me.
TWO. Goal Sports Cafe — This is my favorite spot for food and fun. You rarely find a sports bar with amazing food but it also has kareoke, trivia night, and cute boys! I always start my evening with Goal or end it there.
THREE. Jennifer Meyer Jewelry Key Necklace — This necklace is the only pieces of jewelry other then my love bracelet that doesn’t come off. It’s perfect because it’s dainty enough that it doesn’t get in the way and it’s meant just for you because you choose whatever number is your fav. Mine is accompanied by a heart charm too.
FOUR. Donatienne Barbie Bag — This bag saves my life. It’s my modern day Mary Poppins bag. I use it for any and everything. Anything you need, it’s in my Barbie bag.
FIVE. Ray Bans Wayfarer — These are like my invisible cloak. I have a serious collection of sunglasses but somehow these end up on my face daily. And oh yes I have been known to wear them at night.
