Brahmin Bag, Anyone?

So, I have an extra one of these babies laying around. Want one? It’s the Glossy Anytime Mini Bag by Brahmin and it has a handy-dandy short strap for wearing on your shoulder, but to be completely honest I use it as my makeup bag. An expensive makeup bag, I know, but it works so great and is so stylish.

Several Ways to Enter

  1. Just leave a comment telling me how you’d use the bag for yourself. (1 comment)
  2. Like PSS on Facebook if you haven’t already (1 comment)
  3. Follow, and Tweet out this “secret” (not-so-secret) phrase by clicking the button below (1 comment)

  4. Follow Pretty Shiny Sparkly on Bloglovin’. (1 comment)

Good luck! The winner will be chosen randomly from the comment entries, verified, and announced one week from now. If you can’t wait (or are cynical about your chances) you can always purchase your own for only $95 (for a designer handbag, that’s a steal).

**this giveaway is closed! winner will be announced shortly!**

    I have a Dooney camel leather bag that I use everyday but it would be great to have a beautiful black option! And I love those bags. I occasionally see them at TJMaxx/Marshalls and have been to tempted to buy one…Pick me. Pick me.

  3. 01.31.2012 / 2:14 pm

    I am in love with this bag! I would totally use it to complement my love of bright colors this spring and my obsession with gold! It would look amazing with my Jeffery Campbell’s, a bright pencil skirt, a cute button up, and a chunky gold necklace! xoxo

    I so need a new bag, I just haven’t been able to find one I love with the right price. This is awesome!

  5. 01.31.2012 / 2:29 pm

    I would use this bag for rare date nights with my hubby away from the baby and I would use this in the diaper bag to keep my wallet, makeup, camera, etc. for easy access. Thanks for the great giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. 01.31.2012 / 2:30 pm

    I’d use it as a fancy going-out bag! The only one I have right now is a satin monstrosity that I got for my high school prom!

  7. 01.31.2012 / 2:31 pm

    Oh how wonderful is this giveaway, I need so much a black bag, cause my black one is so old is going to be retired. And If I could have this pretty baby I would use it almost 24/7 with stripes, with skirts, with shorts oh lalala so many ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. 01.31.2012 / 2:32 pm

    I’d probably use it as a make up bag as well ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s super cute ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well… Once a nerd, always a nerd, right? My current job requires me to move around the building a lot, and I have a cute Coach wristlet I currently use to hold my essentials: keys, pass, lipstick, cell phone, pen and a little notepad. This would be the perfect replacement, because I could just add a few more things – actually, just one thing: my wallet – and it would become my every day, I-got-this-covered-don’t-you-worry-about-it purse.

    As they usually say “I love your show”, in this case I love your blog!I just lost a similar one that I used to take for going out, and this one is just the perfect size, big enough that you can take the importante stuff (keys, phone and money) and small enough that you can take it anywhere and it’s not heavy! And, the last but not less important, it’s black and I adore it!

  59. 01.31.2012 / 4:49 pm

    I would use this bag as an everyday bag, definitely. It’s cute, and (if I’m not mistaken on the size) would make me remember to clean my purse out regularly. I can definitely imagine using it frequently.

    Hey Kristina,What a great blog and great competition! Is it open to uk applicants? if so, I’d love this bag, it’s my first London Fashion Week in a few weeks and this would go with so many outfits… as an addition to the giant tote for excessive kit that I’ll undoubtedly have!
    If the comp isn’t open to uk residents then keep up the amazing blog and I look forward to keep reading too.

    Love the bag! First, I would stare at it because I have NEVER owned a bag that cost that much! This would be the perfect bag for everyday and everynight. I would help when I have to go to Wal-mart for groceries, have you ever tried grocery shopping in WAL-HELL with these giant purses now a days. Sadly, I fell for the huge bag fad and now I’m stuck with like 4 of them. Long story short, I would wear this bag until it jumped off my shoulder and said “THAT’S ENOUGH!”

    I love that bag. I love it so much I would take it everywhere with me. If you give me that bag, I will love it like my own child. I would love it, cherish it, and give it lots of hugs.

  142. 02.01.2012 / 4:17 am

    Eek!! Gorgeous! I would use it for nights out, when I don’t have to carry around my big purse that houses most of my kids random crap. Thanks for the chance!

    What a gorgeous bag! I recently purchased an insert for my purse that will hold my SLR and an extra lens. To help accommodate it, I also went out and bought a new purse. Now I have a made for my camera bag that I adore! This addition would be perfect for storing all of my actual purse items, and would make the transition between my camera bag and my ‘just going to work’ purse super easy. It’s important to have a quick place to store your lip gloss, gum and a comb!

    My daughter sent me this link because she know how much I love Brahmin bags. After years, I was given one for Christmas. We used the money that we saved from quitting smoking. I use this style bag for work instead of pockets. I work out of state because there is none in my state.

    A bag like this is perfection in all forms – when WOULDN’T I use it?! Perfect for everyday, a night out, or a way to dress up any errand. Brahmin is an iconic brand that will never go out of style – I couldn’t go wrong with this bag in tow!!

  161. 02.01.2012 / 4:01 pm

    i would pretty much take this bag with me everywhere but only because it’s AWESOME!

  162. 02.01.2012 / 4:31 pm

    I love Brahmin! Their motto “redefining timeless style” is what I aspire to. I would use this fabulous little bag as my shopping and errands bag since it would fit comfortably on my shoulder and be out of the way as I comb through the racks and aisles!Warmly,

  163. 02.01.2012 / 5:26 pm

    I would use this to store my keys, id, cash, visa so I can grab it and go when I run quick errands with my little girl… leaving the whole huge diaper bag in the car!

As a cute clutch to hold my necessities on date nights and as a functional/chic makeup bag for on the go. Also, this would be perfect dressed down on shopping trips with a pair of skinnies, a chunky stripped sweater, and some fabulous oxfords. LOVE.

    I am about to make a really SAD confession…sad because I am what defines a true shopaholic, literally! I have some great purses that are functionable for a busy mom of 3 little ladies. But on those nights when I am getting ready to be out on the town I always am a bit bummed…I’ve got on this fab outfit- makeup and uber-lush false eyelashes applied- but NO amazing little fancy purse to complete my look ;( (except my one lone gold croc embossed Nine West clutch that I purchased at a Ross Dress For Less 8 years ago…ya- I know! ) So, if you picked me, you would put my few and far between “night out on the town purse blues” to a final end!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love your blog! xo
