Giveaway: $25 Store Credit to Curly in the City's Etsy Store!

You may remember my post about a fabulous Celine clutch lookalike which featured Taylor from Curly in the City's gorgeous and affordable look 4 less option. I'm still so enamored with her clutches, that I contacted her about sponsoring a giveaway and she agreed! So, to one lucky reader - you will receive $25 store credit to Taylor's Etsy store (click HERE to view - she does offer more sizes and colors than what is currently available) and then you can choose what style you want and she will make it just for you! I have to say, I'm insanely jealous. :)

To enter you must:

1. Follow Taylor's Curly in the City blog (HERE), and "Like" her Facebook page (HERE).

2. Comment below with your email address (very important!) and also tell me what's in YOUR bag? (In mine I have a million receipts, wallet, checkbook, phone, hand sanitizer (thanks Steph!), a pen, and gum. Nothing too exciting, but there it is.)

3. Must be a US resident.

Entries will be accepted until 12 NOON CST next Thursday, September 1st. Only one entry per person please, multiple entries will be deleted.

Good luck!
