So a little while ago I was introduced to the good folks at Ellington Handbags — and not only did they send me a bag for review, but they’ve also offered to give one to Corporette’s U.S. readers as well! I truly do love my Eva Tote. First, it’s very rocker chic — love the zipper detailing, grommets, the big rings at the handles, and the seaming. The leather is really supple and soft, and it’s designed quite intelligently — for example, their tech pockets are inside another big pocket, which I think will be super helpful for those times where you just want to jam everything into your bag, and then can’t find it later. (Am I the only one?) There’s an interior keyfob and a light-colored lining, as well as a detachable canvas cross-body strap. Gorgeous.
For the giveaway, if you win you can choose either the Eva (my tote — retails for $229, available in black, gray, cognac, or navy) — or you can choose the slightly more casual nylon twill Mia Folding Tote (retail $169, available in olive and black). In order to win, please leave a comment below (with your email address filled out in the field)– which bag would you choose, and why? [Read more...]
