Enter to Win a Coach Handbag & Wallet!

Let your friends know:

It’s no big secret that I’m a purse-o-phile.  Seriously.  I. love. purses.  I don’t know why I have such an obsession with them.  Maybe because I never have to take a purse into the dressing room to try on.  Maybe because in the winter, that might be the only stylish thing someone sees (because of those blasted winter coats we have to wear) or maybe because a purse has never. ever. ever. made my butt look big.

Whatever the reason, I simply love a great designer handbag.  They are, admittedly, an “investment.”  While I don’t “invest” as much as I’d like to, when I do, I really want to make sure I’m getting a great, quality handbag that can be worn with lots of different outfits.

That’s why I’m so excited to have partnered with some of my other favorite bloggers with Mom Powered Media to give you a chance to win this ah-maz-ing Coach handbag & wallet.
