Giveaway :: Yellow Wallpaper Handmade

{please visit Yellow Wallpaper Handmade here}

My purse contains what I like to call a “simple abundance.” In my bag at any time, you will find my wallet, a small clutch holding odds and ends, my phone, keys, and pens. No more, no less. I have larger totes for running errands, dealing with the kids’ gear, etc, but the purse is where my personality lives. I take pride on the fact that my bag is always litter free and perfectly organized. (This says something about my need to control something, I’m sure.) Needless to say, I have a bit of a particular aesthetic when it comes to bags. I’m not going to put that much effort into keeping it tidy if it isn’t worthy, you know?

Yellow Wallpaper Handmade is a goldmine that I am so excited to share with you. Erika Aboites marries a vintage aesthetic with a contemporary styling, combining a mix of textures and sophisticated color palettes. I’m personally torn right now between this BW Clutch Black and White Ikat Print Clutch and the Midnight Sortie featured above. My simple abundance deserves such beauty. So does yours.

    I love all of the colors of the Sortie! What a beautiful design and materials! Three essential items you can find in my purse at any time are a good, moisturizing chapstick (especially now that it is cold outside), an interesting book to keep me entertained on the subway and in situations where I’m early and waiting, and hair ties/pins in case my wavy hair decides its a day to have a mind of its own!

    I love the railway tote  – the colours and classic feel to it spoke to me instantly!
    I travel pretty light so these three things make up pretty much the entire contents of my bag: sunglasses (can’t leave the house without them!), my kindle, and a rolled up reusable grocery bag. There is nothing I hate worse than having to use plastic bags when I pick up a few things at the grocery store!

    Denise says:

    Love the WC Tote- Linen and Canvas Tote! Although all the bags were wonderful, I was drawn to the WC tote because I tend to like casual, everyday bags that aren’t too plain.The balance between neutral and a pop of color is great! I tend to be overprepared wherever I go, so my purses and bag are always has far too many things…but the mainstays would be a lipbalm (it’s too cold here @ -20 C!), a notepad and my wallet. Yup, my phone didn’t even make the cut cause I often forget it these days :S

    Ben D. Linen in golden taupe… And absolutely live the wallets!
    Three essentials in my purse:
    My phone, always using it to maneuver the subway system until I’m more confident with it!
    My wallet and doTERRA essential oils (tiny keychain with 8 small vials: perfect for calming down, doctoring cuts, taking care of a headache, etc)

    Happy Holidays!
