GiGi New York…Leather Envelope Clutch Giveaway!!


April 9, 2012

It’s been quite some time since I’ve hosted a big giveaway, so I thought this would be the perfect time to do so. With so many exciting {and dressy} events coming up, who doesn’t need a clutch to sport with a fun little outfit? Not to mention, I am known as the “bag lady” with my love affair of any type of purse, tote, and handbag.

I was recently sent the gorgeous Leather Envelope Clutch as part of the new GiGi New York line by Graphic Image, and I am loving it…even better, it’s my favorite beloved orange! I cannot wait to use it for our first night on the town post-Caroline this coming weekend! And as any southerner would appreciate, you can personalize it with your monogram, too.
So, Gigi New York graciously offered to give one of their clutches {with free personalization} away to one of my blog friends… woo hoo!
How to enter you ask? Leave a comment following this post telling me all about your favorite purse, and why it’s your “go to”choice. To be eligible, you must be a follower of my blog, and leave a comment before next Monday, April 16th. I’ll announce the winner the next day!

In addition to the giveaway, they have been so kind to offer an exclusive 20% off discount as well…simply input the code: “HAPPINESS” at checkout from either GiGi New York OR Graphic Image.

Interesting in learning more about this wonderful brand? You can sign up to receive emails here, check out their Facebook page here, or follow them via Twitter.
Good luck everyone and thanks for playing!

    I love purses and am having a hard time picking out a favorite to describe here. It all depends on my mood – sometimes I like them big with lots of room, other times I prefer little ones that only fit my wallet, phone, keys, and a lipgloss…
    Good luck to me!

I got this bag as a Christmas gift with the the intention that it's going to be my diaper bag come a month or so (can't give up a good handbag and trade in for a diaper bag! I had to have a diaper bag that I would love to carry!). It's beautiful with the perfect amount of flare that can be wiped down to keep clean.

  33. Army Wife RN says:
