I’m always losing things.
Example 1: Expensive daily planner which contains every address I’ve ever collected plus every appointment I’ve ever made…
Lost: Post Office Square while absorbed in a sketch I was making of a scene by a fountain. (In case you’re wondering it totally wasn’t worth it- the sketch sucked, anyway. . .)
Example 2: Cell phone which contains every number I’ve ever collected . . .
Lost: in a bathroom at a club in Philly, because I thought it would be a good idea to put down while I washed my hands and leave it there for 2 hours.
Example 3: Wallet. . .
Lost: Which time?
You get the picture. I’m clearly a bit absent minded. Some might go as far as to say I’m flighty, (defined as “guided by whim and fancy.”) Even if that’s the case, being flighty isn’t a crime, right? (looking thought my notes. . . just kidding)
Well, crime or not, our girl Linz Shelton is about to slap some cuffz on me! (Oh come on, this is a great transition and you know it!!). Cuffz by Lintz is a collection of ingenious handbags that are stylish, eye catching and practical.
The concept for the original CUFFZ “Barfly” bag came about when Linz was exploring the chic, wild-yet-well-mannered club scene in London several years ago – where one is expected to gracefully keep command of a full cocktail and a fashionable clutch purse while seemingly effortlessly flitting about a crowded dance floor and up tiny VIP staircases. Thus the idea of incorporating handcuffs into one’s evening routine was born! The bag stays put, but the heads turn! Since then, the handcuff – still fully functional – has come to designate one’s glamorous clutch, sexy shoulder bag, or chic tote as a true “CUFFZ” original!
I love ideas that spring up that. Creativity born from experience and necessity. Anyway, her collection is expansive, and if you’re not offended by the idea of handcuffs as a fashion statement (apologizing in advance to my revolutionary brother and public defender friends), her bags are a perfect way to set yourself apart from the LV/ CC/ FF crowd.
