Pour L'Amour's 1st Reader Giveaway!!!

Extremely exciting news, my most awesome readers! For the first time ever Pour L'Amour de Fashion is hosting it's own reader giveaway!

A couple weeks ago I was contacted by OUFI, an up-and-coming leather handbag line out of London about teaming up for a giveaway. Obviously I was so excited about the recognition, and the chance to share something with my readers.
You can learn more about OUFI via the company's website and blog.


I got to choose from a handful of bags, and I think the one I picked, a nude leather clutch with an over-the-shoulder or crossbody length chain link strap is not only super chic but super versatile; totally on-point for the season. The bag's small size and long strap mean it won't get in the way, you can throw it on and forget about it but still have what you need and look cute.  It actually holds a surprising amount- I could easily fit my large, checkbook sized wallet, phone, keys, lipgloss etc.  It effortlessly transitions from day to night, check out the looks I styled below, and while the bag stands out it also doesn't have to steal the show.

When I was able to handle the bag in person I was no less impressed. It is clearly very well made; soft and durable, quality hardware, flawless stitching... I want you all to know that I would never promote anything I wouldn't wear or use myself.

Anyway, My 1st Reader Giveaway! Here's how it's going to work: 
  1. To enter - Leave a comment on this post (include your e-mail, or send me your e-mail directly, so I can notify you if you win), and follow the blog by clicking the "Follow with google friend connect" button on the left.

  4. I will announce a winner next Monday night, July 12th, at 8pm PST, so you have an entire week to keep entering and increase your chances of winning! 

Here's a thousand pictures of me vogue-ing with the bag so you can better comprehend it's awesomeness:
Clearly I love it! and I think it's a true testament to my blogger integrity that I'm not secretly keeping it for myself (I'm not, I promise)!

I think it's also pretty clear that I am a natural born bag-model, and after this stunning debut will be fighting off requests for my purse showcasing talent.

Good luck dolls! Remember comment/follow/tweet to enter.  Thanks for reading and thanks to OUFI for sponsoring this giveaway! wish I had something to reward all you babelicious loyal readers, but I'm sure this is the first of many equally awesome giveaways, so keep reading!

Supple leather, indestructible strap, and the perfect color. I don't need a boyfriend. I need this purse.

OooOoo—so exciting! What a pretty handbag. I would love to win it :) What a generous giveaway this is, I might add... no wonder you wish you could keep it!

I'm not sure why the past few comments haven't shown up... Terrible timing! but for now I'm hoping it's a momentary glitch, and I am notified of them via e-mail, so (Sarah and Christina) don't worry I am counting your entries!
