Win a bag from Wink & Winn


It feels like these days, anyone can be a designer. The only thing standing in the way of your being the next designer of shoes, clothing or alcohol is name recognition and a good agent. Everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kristin Cavallari is now a designer – so why not you, too?

I know how difficult it can be to find the right bag for that next big event. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked for the exact cheetah clutch, or nautical inspired crossbody or a giant black bag to fit my laptop and my wallet and sunglasses. The truth is, more often than not, the right bag just doesn’t exist.

31_LargeTriangleTipblack_smooth_black_lizardA few weeks ago I was introduced to Wink & Winn, an emerging handbag line that lets you custom design the bag of your dreams.

I’ll admit it, I was skeptical. I’ve seen these “design your own bag” companies before – the ones that make chintz bags and paisley fabric that look more like Vera Bradley than Valentino.

But Wink & Winn is the real deal, you guys. They invited me to design my own bag, and sent me sample swatches of all the fabrics so I could confirm for myself that they’re using buttery leathers and ultra soft suedes, lush pony hair and luxe metal hardware that won’t tarnish over time.

Wink & Winn is graciously offering one Possessionista the opportunity to design her own bag (up to $400 value.) Head over to Wink and Winn to play around on their bag design app (I’ve spent more than my fair share of time tooling around on it; it’s highly addictive.) and then enter below to win the chance to design your own.

Disclaimer: I was able to design my own bag with Wink & Winn gratis. I was not required to review the product and did not receive compensation in exchange. The opinions expressed in this post are all mine. Which includes thinking that Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoe line is totally overpriced for what it is.
