People Behind the Purses: Olivia

I am thrilled to introduce our brand-new purse style: Olivia!

Olivia is a small purse that can be carried as a clutch, or you can attach a strap to it to carry it over your shoulder. It’s perfect for a night out, or when you are on the go and want a stylish way to carry your essentials.

So many people request small and medium purses, which gives me a challenge because I want to see as much fabric as possible! ;) But I love Olivia, and I know you will, too.

This newest style is named after my newest sister-in-law, Olivia Scott! She married Nick’s younger brother, Nathan, just over a year ago, and we are so thankful to have her in the family. She is a great listener — very attentive — and she also sees the humor in life, which I enjoy! She adores Nathan, and she loves to talk about Jesus, home life, and mental health.

Olivia is also a minimalist, and it was fun to create a purse I knew she would like. Her style is classy, yet simple, and this purse definitely fits that description.

Keep on reading to hear more from Olivia herself!

1. How do you know Rebekah?

Rebekah is my sister-in-law! 

2. Give us a brief bio of yourself.

I grew up in a small river town in northeast Iowa called Lansing. I currently live in Des Moines, Iowa with my husband, Nathan, and our dog, Wrigley. I am a mental health therapist. Supporting people through life’s journey and advocating for mental health awareness are definitely passions of mine. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, going on walks, being outdoors, and getting together with family. 

3. How many RSD purses do you own?

I own the Jenny bag. It has been a great bag for keeping all of my work stuff organized when I am on the go between working from home and working at the office.

4. Do you have a favorite fabric?

My favorite fabric would have to be the charcoal or black waxed canvas. 

5. Do you own/have you seen the Olivia bag yet? What do you like about it?

I really like that I can use the Olivia bag as a purse or a clutch, depending on what I am doing. I also like how there is a pocket for pretty much everything I keep in my purse, so it is very well organized.

6. We're curious about a few of your favorites:

Favorite movie: This may sound funny, but my favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber. Ironically, that movie was a key factor in the story of how I met my husband! 

Favorite book: I don’t think I have a favorite book, but if I had to pick a category, I would say I enjoy reading memoirs and books related to mental health. 

Favorite ice cream: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream is definitely on the top of my list. 

7. Do you have a quote or motto you live by?

Being kind to others is something I always strive to be. 

8. Do you have a must-have item in your purse, and why?

My must-have item would probably be chapstick. Over the last year though, I have found that I always have a mask and hand sanitizer in my purse!
