Giveaway :: R Pellicer

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

{please visit R.pellicer here}

There are times when I think my handbag is a bit of a downer. There I am with a swaying maxi dress and freshly painted toes, my skin warm and golden in the sun. Head to toe I am screaming Here Comes the Sun(shine)! and yet my sad little bag is stuck in the depths of winter. It is bulky and dark and brings to mind an afternoon filled with hot tea and tights rather than bare arms and sunglasses. If ever there was a season that calls for the right accessory, it’s summer. The simplest way to tie any summer ensemble together is with the perfect handbag.

Rochelle Pellicer of R.pellicer creates stunningly gorgeous handcrafted bags from fine suede in bold and bright colors. The juxtaposition of these vibrant palettes against the simple construction and minimal hardware lends a flawless, chic sophistication to your look. Pellicer creates her bags entirely from scratch and her creativity and finely tuned sense of style are evident in every stitch. This Color Block Tote Shopper is already in the running for being my new “everyday hold everything” bag. I’m sure I could even fit a handbag in there, too. After all, you can never have too much sunshine.

R.pellicer is giving away one Suede Clutch (final color combo may vary) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Tuesday, June 26th. Comments now closed…good luck!
What is in your purse right this very minute?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, July 2nd, to see if you’ve won!

    Foam earplugs (I’m an audiology student);

    What’s in my purse right now? Probably way more than I need but you never know what you might need when you are away from home.  My kids find it funny that I have almost anything that they ever ask for in my purse.  I have my wallet, sunglasses & case (with cleaning cloths), a pencil, a pen, a red crayon, small notebook, tissues, makeup case (lip balms, lipsticks, glass nail file, small tooth brush & floss, magnifying mirror, pocket knife, bandaids and more), rosary beads, business cards, spare key to my truck, gum and mints.  I think thats it : )

    Jenni says:

    Right now my bag is filled with misc odds and ends, but the most valuable thing in it is a flashdrive filled with photos of my family and my puppies. I just started a new job and my first priority was to bring in photos so I could create a screensaver to make me smile. The rest of my office is still all gray, but at least my computer is bright and cheerful!

    Jac says:

    The usual phone, wallet, keys, sunglasses, gum, pen, business cards, and hair tie. Then I have three winning lotto scratcher tix, amounting to $5 and a free ticket. I buy one for my daughter to scratch anytime I have to go into the gas station convenience store. A Tide to go pen. I mentioned I have a kid, right? A small note pad for jotting down ideas and info. because I have realized in the last few years that I can no longer trust my brain to remember such things. Lastly, I have a McCafe rewards card. Is it wrong to admit I prefer McDonald’s frappes to Starbucks frappaccinos?

    Lindsay says:

    My bag is a very small camel-skin messenger from a market in Jerusalem. In it I have some stray coins from tips, my kindle in a knitted case, some lip chap, sunglasses, and an apple.

    What’s not in my bag is more telling than what is in it; that there’s no wallet or  phone in there belies that I have very few life commitments, and that I travel light 🙂

    Lucy Reiser says:

    Eek! I do love that little clutch. In my purse I have a red moleskine planner, a map of Greece (wish I could provide a meaningful explanation for that one), my wallet, chapstick, a pen, and I’m just now realizing I never threw away the little packet of silica gel that says “Do not eat”… So yeah, that’s in there too!

    Laney says:

    I have my wallet, my club cards holder, my sunglasses, lipbalm, pen, nail clippers, tweezers, candy wrapper. Out of the purse because I’m using them are my cell phone and planner. Oh, I also have a bigger bag where I put my purse and other stuff for my commute, such as a bunch of papers, newspaper, book (Let’s pretend this never happened by Jenny Lawson, I highly recommend it), keys, a ziplock with herbal teas and emergency medication (weird, right?) and an unused ID lanyard. Oh, and a piece of found rusted metal for a mixed media piece I plan to do someday. But I might catch tetanos from it instead. 😀
