Pick your own purse

The winner is commenter #50, Mandy!

I am a perfect window shopper. I find all kinds of pretty things but when it comes to actually buying them I’m not so good at that part because I hate spending money. Of course this is why Pinterest is perfect for me.

When Pinterest and I started our long-term relationship one of the first things I pinned was this purse.

I thought about it often, the bow, the color, the cuteness, how expensive it must be.

Then I met a friend for lunch and she was carrying it. The purse.

I loved it so much that I had a mental conversation with myself about the fact that sometimes I actually should buy things and so I did.

I get more compliments on this purse than on any purse I have ever spent five times as much on.

And now I get to give one to you, you the person who might be like me and can buy half of Gymboree but can’t actually buy something for yourself without calculating how many times you will wear it divided by the amount of time you are going to spend in the long check out line. And you who has no problem buying things but needs something else to add to your collection of cuteness.

One reader will get to shop at peace.love.n.polkadots and pick any one item of your choice. Anything. A purse, a diaper bag, a mini-purse for the mini-person in your life, whatever you would like. Just for the record, I want everything.

I’m making this giveaway very simple, here’s the rules:

Mandatory entry:

Visit peace.love.n.polkadots and pin your favorite item in their shop to your Pinterest boards then leave a comment here letting me know you did so (you can do this as many times as you like, just pin a different product every time AND leave me separate comments for each item you pin).

    Jessica, I was just doing the very same thing this weekend. Contemplating buying a new purse/bag and calculating if I should really spend the money on myself! So you have just convinced me that I should! Either way, I pinned that adorable grey ruffle bag. Thanks for the perfect give away!

    And I pinned the light gray one. It’s a color I’d never buy for myself because it’s oh-so-easily made dirty, but I adore it!

    Couldn’t decide, pinned two..and since we were “pretend shopping” my 6yr old had me pin one for her too :)
    I’ve been one of your Facebook fans for over a year now.

    I love the look of the purse and that really you could use it all year! Thanks for posting the giveaway! I pinned it!

    I pinned your purse. I remember seeing it on your boards before and might have actually re-pinned it to a different board at some point. I LOVE it and take this as a sign I need it. If I don’t win, I’m buying it anyway :)
