  2. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    You have lots of nice things, but my favorites are the two little oriental doll change purses. SO CUTE!

    Your web shop is really professional looking and the colors are fab. great job. Please enter me, as I love your giveaway items!

  3. Hi Badladee! I love your givaway items and I hope I win!

    I took a looksy around your shop and I think it looks great. I really love the Sienna bag and have hearted it even though it's a bit out of my price range. I think for the most part (personal preference) your patterns and color choices are excellent! There are a few I don't like, Elise and Xyla, but the others I love. Again, personal preference!

    I hope you have lots of sales!!! Best of luck and thanks for the link to your blog, I will check back often!

  4. yeah, i really like how the website looks as well. very sleek and to the point. the way you handle custom items ("bespoke") is also commendable...again straightforward and to the point. and of course your items are lovely. i especially love the clutches...i'm a clutch kinda girl. and i like how the way the pictures enlarge once clicked.

    greatness all around. :-)

  5. I think your website is great, looks really professional and easy to navigate, and your products are very nice!

  6. love the site, the colours look great, it is all clear and well laid out. I heart the sushi handbag :)
    The only slightly negative comment - will this dash my chances of winning? Is that I really wanted to click on the pictures in the menu, the polaroid type pics.

  7. *squeals with delight*
    Love the bags/pouches! The prints are adorable (especially the sushi and doll ones!) I love the shoppers as I like my bags roomy. And the website is very organised, with easy navigation.
    However, I think the pictures of the bags on the description page can be bigger to show how lovely they are! =D
    Thanks, Bagladee!

  8. the site is really awesome! i like that the background is nice and simple without anything distracting like ads (not a huge fan of ads but i get used to them anyway)i especially love your handbags they are soo pretty the designs on them are amazing, beautiful and so darn colorul! my favorite i would have to say is the mirage one. i'm not a big fan of pouches but those pouches are adorable!

  9. first off, your giveaway goodies are great! i really liked the clutches with the rhinestone buckles and the brooches. the only thing i noticed was the pictures took a while to load but that may have been my computer, not sure.

  10. Your website is beautiful and very easy to shop around. I LOVE your choice of fabrics and your purses are so pretty.

  11. Your site's very nice - I like the clean look. Plus it's easy to navigate. I love your Swirl hand bag/shopper, Xyla clutch bag, and Cupcake pink purse! Very cute stuff! Your fabrics are adorable too! Thanks!

  12. Hello! I was just checking out your new website the other day! It looks very smart and your bags are very lovely.

    the only thing I can see wrong with it is that the writing on your 'polaroid' pics seems quite small and difficult to read and it might also be nice if you can click on the pics to take you to the sections as well as the side menu/ or would a click map be too tricky?

    Hope that helps! Claire.xx

  13. Hi Emma, thanks for the comment on my blog. Wow, what a fabulous giveaway! You're so generous! The site looks great, everything is gorgeous but I have to say my favourites are the little cupcake purses, I love the little heart charms on them! Really hope it goes well for you & you get lots of sales.

  14. I really like your bags. Thanks for letting us have a chance to win one! I thought the layout of your site was very slick and easy to navigate.

  17. I just love your new shop, as others have said the layout looks great!

    My faves though are the flower brooches, I adore felt and this is such a great way to use it!

  18. I agree that the layout is wonderful - very professional looking! I also agree with one of the commenters above that the writing on the 'polaroid' pictures is very difficult to read.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  19. Hi!
    I had a look at your website before seeing you had a giveaway;o) Well done!
    i already wanted to comment but i'll do it in a more detailed way. Your products are great, and the website layout is nice and clean.
    I suppose what you are looking for here is to get ideas to improve your website so I wont expand myself on what is well done ;o) You will only find below the elements I would improve if it was my own website:o)

    And good luck :))

    - the writing on the pics is too small to read (and i have my glasses on ;o))

    - my first instinct was to click on the pics, and when it didn't work, I first thought the website was not up and running yet. i eventually looked on the left though, but it would be cool being able to click the pics.

    - It's my personal opinion, but I would not put an outside link so fast on your website ; i.e. in your "bagladee" description, you have the link to your blog. That's great, but what you want to do is to retain customers on your website, not send them away to your blog, on which they can be distracted by something else and click away to the wide wide world..
    I would suggest putting your blog link in the "contact" section, which is at the end, instead of right at the beginning.

    - in the bespoke section: if you can, try adding a small contact form directly on your website rather than a "mailto:", because a lot of people don't use programs like outlook or the like of it, and it's really annoying for them when the program opens by itself. save them the hassle of having to go open their mailbox to send you a mail, they may forget to do it. If your contact form is under their eyes, you make it easier for them -> more chances to actually get an order.

    - you have pics everywhere... except on the "collection" page, where they would be great next to the very wordy descriptions ;o) Remember that a lot of people don't take the time to read descriptions, they just go by pictures :)


  20. Your new website is very nice. I liked a lot of things about it. It's very professional looking and the black background is very attention getting. There are two things I noticed: I really felt like I should have been able to click on the pics of the handbags to get to them, instead of having to go back to the left and click on the words. Secondly, the last 2 bags in your purses/market bags i think you call them, have errors in the description. They both say they have white handles, but one has black and the other has blue. Check it out, you'll see what I mean. Oh, and finally, I know that's 3 things, but this just may be me not understanding- where you talk about making a custom bag, did you mean "one off" or "one of". it may be an expression i am just not familiar with?? Anyway, sorry to be so longwinded. Love the website, love your bags. I forget the names of the 2 I liked best, but I definitely have favs!

  21. Fun give away, the oriental doll pouch is my favoirte, so cute!!!

    I like how the photos blow up very large so you can really see what you will be getting, nice work!


  22. hi emma, i absolutly love all your bags especially the felt broches and clutch bags, i really want a tote aswell so will have to wait for payday. the materials are fab, colourfull and look truly unique. excellent work, really love the website too, i had no problems with pictures loading or being to small.
    oh i hope i win, fingures crossed

  23. I think your items are designed beautifully and when I click the photos to see them, they look wonderful. I appreciate the many angles you give in the photos. The suggestion I would give is that at first glance the pictures are awfully little. I think if they were bigger people would be more inclined to click them for detail and out of interest.

  24. Great blog and nice contest! I like your choices in colors. These would make great gifts anytime.

  25. The website is awesome. I especially like your cosmetic pouches. Good luck with the new site.

  26. Congrats on your new site! It's very organised and I love the descriptions you give. My favourite picks would have to be the Oriental doll pink purse and Cupcake pink purse. They are just too cute!!! Good luck with everything and thanks for sharing such great items :)


  27. I'm absolutely addicted to bags, especially cosmetic bags. I loved how your bags were lined and had great zippers - and I adore the cupcake print! Great site.

  28. Hi Bagladee!

    Here is my critque of your website. :-)

    First of all I think it's great you have your own site. It creates another piece of marketing
    that you can benefit from...not to mention that you show up on search engines very easily.

    Things I love:

    The black and pink colors are very bold.
    The menu is easily found.
    Very easy to navigate and find things in the site.
    It's great that you use paypal!
    Great item descriptions.

    Things to consider:

    Make the fonts larger.
    Add more photos. I'm a visual person. :-)
    Inclue a photo and bio of yourself. Include other
    hobbies, family, friends, etc...

    Thanks for the chance to win free stuff!


  29. Sorry I could not find anything that I did not like about your website. I really like how you used a black background with the pink and grey font colors. I thought the colors showed up well. Your site looks clean and professional while still looking young and hip! I like it!

    Please enter me into the contest. I would love to win!!
