Natalie Morrow of Stansberry Design already has a waiting list at Bella for her kickin duds. Remember that awesome pink flower bag that donned the wall for less than a week? That’s her. Natalie makes “very feminine-minded accessories, scarves & handbags, for fashion-foward women who are not afraid to “look pretty!” And that is something we can totally get behind. She’s been rocking out on her sewing machine as a full time gig for the last year and a half, after being taught my her mother and sister. (can we just say ‘thank you’ for passing along those awesome skillz?)

Natalie loves donuts and would travel the world if she hit the multi- million $ jackpot (and we are totally tagging along. Is a world wide donut tasting trip a business expense?). And as always we asked some heavy hitting questions:

  • Most famous person you have met: Wow, that would have to be a tie between Bruce Springsteen and Sarah Jessica Parker. Bruce was leaving in his SUV after his concert in Des Moines and had stopped to greet fans who had waited for him. I shook Bruce’s hand and thanked him for coming to Iowa (I think that counts as “meeting”). I saw Sarah Jessica Parker outside the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills as she was gettting in her limo to go to the Golden Globes. I said “hi” and told her she looked beautiful (which she did!) She was very, very gracious and said “hello” back and said “thank you very much.”
  • Worst job you ever had: In college I had a job as a party photographer. Yeah, it sounds
    “fun” but it was horrible. They sent us to high school dances and set quotas for us while we were there. We had to take a required amount of candid photos. By the end of the night, the kids were turning their backs on saying “go away!” I felt so lame.
  • Favorite thing about Bella? I really love the fact that Bella is supporting all things hand made. I think there is a definite movement happening out there and Bella is ahead of the curve. Aww, shucks! Thanks so much!

If you haven’t gotten your hands on a Stansberry original, there is no better time than the present. From uber cute clutches, to flowing flowery scarves, Bella has the scoop on all the lastest Natalie has to offer. But don’t take our word for it. Check it out yourself!
