Who Would Like a New Handbag?

October 12, 2009

This is a Happy Day! I’ve been so excited for this all weekend and now we’re here. Yes, excited for a Monday – it’s true.

Navy, white. This is my favorite color combo.
And now I’ve found my favorite new handbag:

Isn’t she beautiful??

Classic, timeless, elegant.

And durable: it’s made of silk-screened fabric coated with TPU so it can be wiped clean.  Lots of interior pockets too.

And here’s the thing, I’m going to give it to you (it will be such sweet parting at the Post Office next Monday).

And all you have to do is leave a comment by Friday, October 16th.  I’ll use and alert the winner on Saturday.

After you’re done, check out Ellen Allen’s website:

    What a silly, silly question. WHO wants a new HANDBAG??!! ME, for sure! My current bag is in tatters and in sore need of replacement. We spend our life from the coast of Maine to the Delaware shore and the beaches of North Carolina. This nautically essenced bag wants to be MINE!! Seriously, though, beautiful craftsmanship, Ellen Allen.

    Changing your handbag is a great way to spice up your wardrobe! Black and white can be paired with practically anything. Don’t forget that your black and white clothes can be equally versatile. Next time you pull out your favorite black and white skirt, leave boring black or white tops behind. Pair it with a pop of color for a chic and sophisticated look. You now have a completely different looking outfit!
