Kara began in downtown New York City, which is evident in all its artistic designs.

The problem with It bags is that you tend to see the same one everywhere. Lovard bags make it easy to stand out, though, because every single one is customizable. First you can choose your hardware color. Then you can easily personalize it with your name at no extra cost. Lovard also makes clip-on charms like oyster shells, snakes, and tassels. The best thing is the charm is easy to snap off when you don’t feel like having it on your bag. You can easily just add it to a jewelry chain and wear around your neck.
