Previewing Initials Inc. Handbags West Coast Launch PLUS a Giveaway! @InitialsInc #iicali Ends 11/23/13

Not too long ago, we attended an Initials, Inc. launch on the west coast. We had the chance to preview their 2013-2014 fall and winter handbag collection and signature line.

If you are already fans of The Children’s Place, you will love them even more with their new Fall collection!
