Herringbone Bags + Refinery 29 Reserve Giveaway!

The clutch is a powerful thing. There you are, standing in front of the mirror, ready to walk out the door with your regular handbag. But wait, you think to yourself, how would this look with a clutch? Put together, that’s how. Polished. Clutches can really be the icing on the cake, that last little statement that elevates an outfit. So you can imagine my delight when Refinery 29’s Reserve contacted me, wanting to giveaway one of Herringbone’s beautiful clutches to one of my fabulous readers.

That’s right. Valentine’s Day just came a little early.

Reserve is Refinery29’s destination for the style-savvy shopper. From fashion to beauty to décor, the R29 editors handpick the most coveted designers, stores, and websites and curate exclusive offers that you’ll truly love. The Herringbone clutches are no exception, am I right? R29 Reserve currently offers two exclusive versions, one with gold leather trim and the other a more subtle red-trimmed version, which we’re giving away today. Both clutches feature gorgeous fuchsia suede and Herringbone’s signature rose gold zipper.

Here are the deets: one lucky vmac+cheese reader will win an exclusive R29 Reserve fuchsia clutch with red trim from Herringbone, valued at $105. To enter, all you need to do is enter a comment below. No need to like or follow or do anything else. Just one comment! The giveaway will close on Wednesday, February 8 at 11:59pm Pacific time, and I’ll choose and announce a winner the next day, on February 9. Open only to US residents. See below for complete giveaway details.

Good luck! And cheers to pink and red. As we all know, it’s not just for Valentine’s Day anymore…
