You can’t think of accessories and not think of Elaine Turner. Miss Thing knows her a way around a handbag just in case you were wondering. But don’t put her in a box, because she can make you cry for a pair of shoes and make you the envy of all your friends with a smokin’ hot I-Pad case.

She has developed quite a name for herself and we are proud to call her our own – Texan all the way BABY. Each season Elaine’s collections have a muse and destination; for Fall 2012 it’s Ali McGraw (LOVE HER). Check out The Ali Bag below and also one of her cute Fall 2012 collection videos.

HOUSTON, TX – Accessories designer Elaine Turner has a very personal reason for supporting breast cancer research this October. With her mother, Marlaine, currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer, Elaine Turner is more committed than ever to fighting this devastating disease.

“Breast cancer is a cause extremely close to my heart,” says handbag and shoe designer Elaine Turner. “The ElaineTurner brand is dedicated to supporting the community we serve.  By creating the Marlaine bracelet, I hope to bring as much awareness to this illness as possible.”

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Elaine Turner is donating 100 percent of the proceeds of the pink wrap bracelets to the Nellie B. Connally Breast Center at MD Anderson Cancer Center where her mother is currently being treated. This world renowned, Houston-based treatment facility is named for a breast cancer survivor and tireless advocate of breast cancer awareness, and provides its patients with superior care and emotional support.

At just $55 retail, it’s never been easier to stylishly support an extraordinarily important cause. The leather wrap bracelets will be available at Elaine Turner’s flagship Rice Village and CITYCENTRE boutiques, newly opened San Antonio boutique and online at

Along with her namesake stores in Houston and San Antonio, Elaine’s collection is carried in Neiman Marcus and specialty boutiques worldwide. She and her signature designs have been featured on The Today Show, ABC’s Mirror/Mirror and in Glamour, InStyle, People, Lucky, Coastal Living, O The Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, Southern Living and many more.
