Spring and summer may rain puddles on the sidewalk and give a soaking to hair and feet but - thanks to the Gussy - when the downpours come you no longer have to worry about drenched handbags and totes!
Introducing the Gussy - the purse-fect fashion accessory and seasonal must-have! The Gussy is a protective, waterproof patterned "umbrella" designed to be worn as a protective cover over a favorite handbag.
According to Jamie Hantman who designed this clever how did we ever live without it accessory, "Nothing can ruin a fashion look (or designer handbag) faster than getting caught in an unexpected downpour. Women pay a lot for their purses and want (need) to protect their investments."
The Gussy takes "rain gear" to another level - not only providing a protective cover that is functional, but one that is fashionable, pretty and in patterns and colors as trendy as the handbag it's covering.
Designer Hantman, a former Washingtonian and White House power player designed the Gussy to complement the wardrobes of well-heeled, fashion-savvy women whose multi-faceted lifestyles have them on-the-go and braving the elements day and night. The best-selling Caroline is the basic LBD for your purse; the Charlotte pays tribute to the classic trench coat, and the Jenny and Meredith feature trending chevron stripes and polka dots. There is even a style for edgier fashionistas, the Chelsea featuring a skull, crossbones and king crown.
The Gussy received a Best New Product Award at NY Now in February and there are already imitators of the design made from inferior materials and without the structural design and printed patterns that make this item a "must-have" fashion accessory. Continues Hantman, "We will continue to introduce new colors and designs each season to coordinate with runway trends and allow women to make bold statements with their handbags-even when they are undercover."
The Gussy is sized a generous 36" X 16" and has three Velcro tabs that adjust to different purse sizes, styles and handles. When not in use, it folds up and can be easily stored inside your handbag - rain or shine so you are always prepared. MSRP $20

Like most women, I LOVE my bags and purses. I am guilty of having quite a few! The thought of going out in the rain with one that you've saved up to treat yourself with is a bit scary! When I heard about this innovative new idea from, The Gussy, I was thrilled! The design of the purse covers are fashionable, affordable, and there is one for every style! Between polka dots, skulls, and designs that look like an actual purse, everyone has the chance to keep their bag safe with a unique umbrella. The selection allows for each person to have their own trendy and unique accessory!
When my beautiful cover arrived, I was happy with the thick consistency of it. I could tell right away this cover was durable and long enough to cover the smallest to biggest style of purse. It had three Velcro flaps on the back. To secure your purse, pull each one up individually, put the straps of your purse through the top, then secure the Velcro flaps back down. There you have it!
I was impressed with how well it kept my purse safe in the rainy conditions. It's easy to fold back up and keep in your car for emergencies or at home. With the affordable cost, you may want one for each place! I would highly recommend The Gussy for anyone looking for a fashionable way to keep your purse safe in the elements!
