{designer moment} Brahmin blogger dream bag (+ a giveaway!)

I know you probably just read the title of this post and thought - what the what? Designer? Giveaway? Neither of those things apply to this blog, ever.

Well, color me surprised too! I am oh so overjoyed to share with you guys that I was part of a little "blogger dream team" if you will, (that included our friend Meghan) who created a winning handbag design at a Brahmin event this summer (with the Vogue Influencer Network). Ages ago, right? Well producing fabulous bags takes time, believe it or not. Anyway, we designed two different bags - a satchel and a clutch. Below, feast your eyes on the satchel that arrived a couple weeks ago and seriously blew my mind.


Pretty pretty, right? It's roomy, sophisticated and has pockets for days. I've been carrying around on the daily, and it seems to work well with almost all my spring ensembles. (Have you seen all my Instagrams? Yeah, I wear it a lot.)


The other fun part of this project is that I get to give away our other winning bag - an oversize tri-color clutch - to one of my fabulous readers!



Here's how to enter!
  1. Leave a comment below (so I can contact you if you win!)
  2. Extra Entry: Follow me on Twitter and tweet the following: "I just entered to win a @Brahmin Blogger Dream Bag from @shutupilovethat at shutupilovethat.blogspot.com!"
Good luck! Entries will be accepted through 12AM EST on Saturday, March 31st. (Open to US Residents only.)

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!


Also, if you feel so inclined, you can purchase one of the Blogger Dream Bags here.
