Giveaway: Win an Ellington Handbag!

Eva Tote: BlackSo 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.

Mia Folding Tote: OliveFor 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?

  1. Corporate Tool :

    I love the Eva, it’s professional, but the big hardware gives it a bit of a rocker chick feel.

    • Love the Bags! :

      I like them both, but I’d choose the Eva. It seems a bit more versatile in color and more professional whil maintaining an edge. It also seems to hold more, which is important to me. I like that it has many zippered pockets yet seems to hide them well.

  2. I love the Mia – it looks like the perfect traveling bag!

  3. I love the Mia folding tote- it seems so practical and easy to pack
    Into a suitcase

  4. tara v. b. :

    I love the cognac Eva tote. I keep trying to push myself away from my default black/gray wardrobe, and that would be a great accessory to inspire me to change things up a bit at the law office!

  5. I love the MIA!! It’s great for work, but casual enough for everyday use outside of work!!

  6. LOVE the Eva in Cognac – would look fabulous with dark wash jeans and a black tshirt on the weekend!

  7. Mountain Girl :

    I would choose the Mia. Love the color and the versatility of the design.

  8. I’d love the Eva in either black or cognac, for the exact reason you said–totally rocker-chic! It’s really pretty, thanks for alerting us to it.

  9. I would love the Eva tote. I love the look of leather and that gray and navy is to die for!

  10. I would love to win the Eva in gray or navy because I love handbags with big hardware. The tote reminds me of my Rebecca Minkoff MAB but in a completely different shape.

  11. I love the Eva. Because I look to Kat for all my fashion choices. :)

  12. eva- would be great for the office!!

  13. hellskitchen :

    I love, love the Eva! perfect for work

  14. I like the Mia, especially the cross body strap, because it’s different than what I currently own. Love twill for the summer.

  15. I love the Eva in navy or congac. Either one would be a great addition to my weekend wardrobe.

  16. Eva all the way! I’m a sucker for a soft leather bag.

  17. SoCal Gator :

    Definitely the Eva Tote in cognac. Great size. Appreciate the interior key fob but the killer feature are the two exterior zip pockets.

  18. Eva in navy. Completely agree on the rocker-chick vibe! And I am trying to move away from my just black or brown bags and I think the navy would be comfortable move towards color.

  19. I’d chose the Mia, as I really could use a durable, non-leather summer tote! Would definitely fill a void I have.

  20. Awful Lawful :

    I love the Mia in Olive. It looks like it’s big enough to schlep a file to and from work, but then could be worn folded over for a weekend brunch with the ladies. Perfect.

  21. I love the Mia! Perfect for everything I have to carry to work!

  22. I like the Mia!!! So great, although I do like my Lo & Sons still… but it will be nice to have a choice between bags

  23. Love the Eva in cognac! Love that its a bit tougher looking than my average leather handbags.

  24. I love them both but my super fashionista receptionist says Mia so it’s Mia for me(a)!

  25. migraine Sufferer :

    I like the Mia better because it fits better with my more casual wardrobe. Also, the detailing on the Eva isn’t really in-tune with my style (though I do love the supple feel of quality leather).

  26. I love the Eva for the exact reasons Kat mentions – the rocker chic details!

  27. I would go with the Mia because I like the styling and it looks extremely versatile for work.

  28. I would choose the Eva (love the grey and cognac). I have a ton of work events that I need to go to this summer, and this bag would be the perfect mix between professional and chic. I can see myself toting both my legal papers and make-up bag for sprucing up before meeting friends for after work drinks. Love, love, love it!

  29. anon in tejas :

    love rocker! because I am in my non attorney life, and I love it. plus the details really fit the 20=30 something that I am.

  30. Love the Eva, and would take it in any color!

  31. Oooh… I want the Eva in grey. I love grey and have been needing a new tote for years.

  32. I’d pick the Eva in cognac, I love the details and it looks so soft I want to use it as a pillow!

  33. I’d choose the Eva in Congac because it looks great as a stand alone purse. It doesn’t loose it’s pretty factor when the shoulder strap is added, which would make it a great bag for commuting and traveling!

  34. I am all about the Mia in Olive. Perfect weekend bag whether I’m perusing farmers markets or meeting friends for brunch.

  35. i love the mia because it can fit a laptop! a must for work

  36. DeckledEdges :

    I really like the Eva, especially in the black and navy. I love that it is big enough to hold a computer, but still stylish enough to be a non-working bag.

  37. Love the Eva tote, looks so functional and attractive. And I generally prefer the look of leather to nylon.

  38. Blonde Lawyer :

    I like the Eva in gray. It is more formal for work but also versatile for going out. It looks deep too, like you could put some papers in standing upright without folding them.

  39. I would pick the Eva in black. I don’t have a good black bag. This would be great for transporting things to and from work, while still being stylish. I also really like the navy.

  40. Ooh, the Eva! I am in the market for a new cognac leather bag to carry every day.
