Review and giveaway (closed): Purse from Twisted Orchid!




Congrats to my winner: Katie
 
I'm a mom of two small kids. Which means that most of the time I am carrying a diaper bag rather than a purse. Don't get me wrong, I love my diaper bag and its practicality, but I miss cute purses.  And I REALLY want to be carrying a purse rather than a diaper bag now that I have this:


Seriously!!! How completely cute is that! My bag is the Camilla Peony bag from the Mad by Design Taffeta Silk line, sold at Twisted Orchid. The bag is really great in person- the flowers are made of taffeta silk and the handles of sculpted Horn.  Inside there's plenty of space for your wallet and phone and a few other items. And there's a small zippered pocket for things that you want to keep zipped up.  The bag is well made and it's so luxurious-looking!  Carrying it around makes me want to put on a fancy dress and head to the theatre!

There are so many other drool-worthy purses at Twisted Orchid. I love this purse- doesn't it just make you smile? It sells for $31 at Twisted Orchid.


If flowers aren't your thing, Twisted Orchid has a nice line of animal-friendly leather handbags.  5 pages of them, to be exact. Here's my personal fave, the Carmine Red Large Tote, which sells for $42. 


If you're shopping for a clutch or a wallet, Twisted Orchid also has you covered there. This Alpine Clutch Wallet is really nice-looking and only $24.


If you're looking for something a little different- check out the Twisted Orchid line of Shell and Horn handbags and small purses. Here's one I like! This is the Plum Framed bag, which sells for $42.

And to round out the handbag category, Twisted Orchid also sells Eco Bamboo Handbags. I think this  Chartreuse plaid large tote bag would be perfect for summer trips to the park- get this one for $49. 


You can also buy lots of ecogreen canvas products- wallets, totes, duffel bags, messenger bags, you name it. I totally need this Fleur de Lis keyfob- and will probably buy it since it's only $6.50 :)


If you don't need a bag (as if that ever happens) you can shop at Twisted Orchid for earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. So many wonderful options!  

I think the prices on the purses at Twisted Orchid are really reasonable- there are only a handful of bags over $80, and there's always free shipping in the continental US. If you use the code "TWISTED" at checkout, you'll get 20% off your order, on top of the free shipping!  You can even shop directly from the Twisted Orchid Facebook page!

Seriously, I could keep posting pictures of things that I like all day.  But I'll stop doing that, so that I can get to the really good news!! One of you will get to win your choice of item from Twisted Orchid- anything up to $80 (that means almost everything on the site is included!).  Mailing addresses in the continental US only, please. 

Mandatory entry (must be done for extra entries to count):
