CLOSED // A Sweet Giveaway: Claret Handbags


CLOSED!

Winner: Kaddie

Congratulations, Kaddie. I'll be emailing you shortly with more information. Thanks to all who entered. And a heads up, on Monday I'll be hosting one more Claret giveaway on IG. It's a GOOD one...so stay tuned! xoxo



So excited about today's giveaway! My friend recently designed a handbag line and today, one bag of YOUR CHOICE is up for grabs! She sent me one of each to try out, and let me tell you...they're amazing.

Some things I love about Claret:

100% vegan
their adorable, on-point colors
versatile- there's a bag for each part of your day/life
SO cute

And today, one of these bags may be all yours!

One winner will receive their choice of handbag from Claret's debut spring collection. You can choose from the cream and yellow Marie Jeanne weekender, the tangerine Bordeaux handbag, or the Split envelope clutch.

 To enter:

Visit Claret's website, take a look at the bags, then leave a comment below with your name and email address, along with which bag you'd choose if you won.

For up to three bonus entries:

1. Follow Claret on Twitter and post this tweet:

I entered to win a Claret handbag of my choice from @clarethandbags via Sometimes Sweet and @danihampton! #vegan http://tinyurl.com/chppv8p

2. Like Claret on Facebook.

3. Follow Claret on Instagram.

Be sure to leave an additional comment (with your name and email) for EACH WAY you enter, for up to 4 ways to win!

I'll choose a winner on Thursday, April 25th. And be sure to follow me on IG for another Instagram-only Claret giveaway next week.

Good luck to all who enter!

xoxo

  5. Hi Danielle,
    How awesome to have such talented friends. I'm always on the hunt for vegan bags/shoes but never find anything that's cute AND good quality.
    If I won I'd love the Marie Jeanne weekender bag.

    Thanks!

  6. That's so wonderful! It's always great hearing about/seeing creative and talented individuals push themselves to launch their dreams and succeed!

    I LOVE the Bordeaux! The coral coloring is perfect for spring/summer, and is just so pleasant! And so stoked they're vegan :)
