135A85944Arabella Hogg interviews Krista Decesare, the woman behind the ‘Krista‘ Bag design.

Nickname: Bree (Desperate Housewives)

Describe yourself in three words: Funny, Indecisive & Outgoing

What has been your greatest achievement? Definitely my family.

What is your biggest fear? I’m afraid of heights.

If you ruled the world, what would your first law be? 4-day work week!

Going out or staying in? Mmm… Staying in! Although I must admit I do enjoy a good night out.

Chocolate or cake? That’s a tough one… Chocolate!

High heels or flats? Flats or wedges?

Fashion wise, who is your biggest idol? At the moment I would say Olivia Palermo


Krista with her adorable son, Max.

How would you describe your own personal style?

I think my style really depends on my mood. However, more often than not, I would opt for something classic. My wardrobe consists of a lot of neutrals, such as black, grey, navy, cream and white. Oh, and I’m definitely a handbag girl! I absolutely love handbags and believe that they are great ‘investments’!  I would much rather invest in an accessory than a piece of clothing.

How do you plan to wear your bag? 

Well, I’ve already worn my C&R tote quite a few times. It is my go-to bag on the few occasions when I am not running around with my baby bag. It is a very versatile handbag which can easily be dressed up or down. I would probably wear it with a pair of high-waisted shorts and a classic white blouse or T-shirt tucked in, together with a nice pair of loafers or wedges. In winter you would probably find me wearing it with a pair of black fitted jeans, a baggy T-shirt, a denim jacket, a nice oversized scarf and a pair of ankle boots.
