The Real Housewives of Orange County has returned to Bravo for its 6th season. During its premiere, Gretchen debuted her exclusive handbag collection from her Gretchen Christine brand. Rossi’s collection that sells online is now almost sold out with only a few styles left!
Rossi’s leather purses range from $129 – $279 and are available in colors such as bronze, champagne, coral, red, camel and black. Various styles include totes, doctor handbags, satchels and clutches.
Housewife Vicki Gunvalson isn’t very impressed with Rossi’s business endeavors.
“I did not just slap my Gretchen Christine logo on some bags as Vicki so harshly tried to tear my business down,” Rossi blogged.
“I created, designed, and personally picked the leather and all the details for all my bags. It took me over eight months to create my pearlized leather collection. I worked with the head designer of my manufacturer and created the bags from scratch based off my own personally drawings of what I wanted,” Rossi added.
And Rossi doesn’t create her bags for Gunvalson. She designs and sells them for her fans and customers who love the Gretchen Christine brand – fans like Kristen Cavallari who “rocked” a Gretchen Christine pearlized clutch on the red carpet for The Hills finale.
Each bag is designed with a customized wall to fit Gretchen Christine Beaute products. For true fans, they can carry a specially designed Gretchen Christine bag and go glam with GC eye shadow, lip stick, lip plumbers and eye liner.
The self-proclaimed quintessential Orange County girl hopes that her collections, accessories and products become as successful as the Jessica Simpson brand.
“I started with handbags, but plan on expanding it to all the things a girl can find in her closet; from shoes, to hats, to clothes, casual wear and accessories!” says Rossi, whose brand is about educating women on how to look and feel their best.
