Frenchy of California Giveaway

When I was pondering the topic of today's post I realized that it has been twenty days since I started this endeavor, and I have had almost 2,000 visitors. This fact is just a coincidence, of course, yet a bit fun. In George W. Rutler's book Coincidentally, he says that coincidences were long held to be divine puns. I had never heard that before, but I love it. Wrap your mind around it...

In celebration of this completely meaningless anniversary I thought a giveaway would be in order. I know that many other blogs do giveaways, and I find them rather fun (though I have never won anything). I also love giving this or that great find away to this or that sister, so I invite all of you good readers (including you internationals) to enter the with my sisters Frenchy of California handbag giveaway.


This vintage Frenchy of California handbag is made of luxurious cream colored leather. The over the should strap is removable. I actually was a bit hesitant about it at first, but I couldn't get over how gorgeous the leather is. This size and style of bag is also really on trend and convenient when you don't need to carry the world. After playing around with it a bit, I really do love it. In case you share my initial hesitation, I have included some ideas on how to style it for casual, semi-casual, and with a LBD. I paired it with grey, white, and black because I have cool coloring, but it would look awesome with creams and browns. I also kept the lower body silhouettes slim  (no wide leg jeans) because the bag hits at the widest point of my hips.



The accessories for these three looks:






The looks:

Grey V-neck, dark straight jeans, low burgundy heels

Same outfit, except the jeans are cuffed at the hem for a different feel.

A bit dressier, same jeans and heels, with a white button down, and camel boatneck sweater.
The LBD.
So there you have it! Get your entries in and there will be a winner in one week!

  2. "Trust Me, I Look Really Good on the Inside" was my fav, but I love all of your work, Mary! I'd love to hear your take on day to day fashion as a mom chasing three kids outside, while getting dirty, sweaty, etc. it's so easy to wear the shorts and tennis shoes (or even crocs...I know)....
