Giveback Giveaway: Win A Beautiful Bag From The New TOMS Bag Collection


 We’ve always been fans of TOMS especially since we’re both LA-based and they care about giving back in a big way. But now we’ve got a whole (or two) new reason to love them more. They’ve just introduced their stunning new TOMS Bag Collection just in time for summer which includes everything from clutches, messenger bags, tote bags, duffel bags, crossbody bags, wallets, diaper bags & more. To introduce the collection, our buddies at TOMS, along with The Blonde & The Brunette, are giving away your choice of one of their coveted new bags. It’s a fun dilemma— your choice of the black multi-chevron straw islander tote ( a $98 value ) or the black woven embroidered wanderer bucket (a $298 value) — to one very lucky B & B follower.


Before we let you know more about your choices,  we have to melt your hearts right before Mother’s Day. Every bag in the TOMS collection saves lives by providing a safe birth for a mother and baby in need.  One for One®. We’re thinking this is a great gift for a new mom, your mom, and of course, a stylish treat for yourself.  Additionally, with each purchase, $5 will go to support Every Mother Counts global advocacy efforts to improve the future of maternal health. Some of our favorite choices from their new collection come in bold colors, ikat prints ( a personal favorite) and multi-stripes.

Now for the fun part! You get to choose which TOMS bag you’d love to win. Of course, we went down to Santa Monica to enjoy the LA sunshine with our very own Jadan and had a great day and couldn’t quite decide between ourselves which bag to pick. Decisions. The gorgeous Black Multi-Chevron Islander Tote which is perfect summer carryall or the dressier Black Woven Embroidered Wanderer Bucket Bag that is great at the beach or the office.


 So which one is for you? The chevron patterned tote crafted in a raffia material is an exuberant carryall like no other or the polished and practical bucket bag which gives you the freedom to carry what you want, and the style to carry it off. It features hand-knotted macramé, contrasting embroidery and a hand-cut leather tassel with wood beads.
