The Crazy Suburban Mom: Who doesn't want a Creamsicle Purse?

Who doesn't want a Creamsicle Purse?

In July I posted about my search for the perfect purse and got lots of responses. Purses, it seems, are something people have a lot to say about. I agree, me too.

So what do y'all think about a purse giveaway?

Fabulous, right?

Listen... When the Buzz Cooperative asked if I wanted a purse by Sondra Roberts for myself and one to giveaway my answer was Holy Handbag, Batman! Yes! A free purse? C'mon! What's better than a free purse... A purse always fits no matter how much water you are retaining.

Seriously, think about it.

Did you ever have to lay on the bed to zip your purse?

I got to pick a purse and I picked this one.


The details are:

Trupunto Circles - Orange

  • Quilted trapunto body with optional extended shoulder strap
  • Large outside front zip pocket
  • Inside backwall zip pocket
  • Inside frontwall open accessory pockets
  • Zipper closure with tab and lock
  • 17"L x 6"W x 14"H
  • Drop Length: 11"
  • This is what I love about it.... First, It's big but not so big that it's mistaken for luggage. Second - and this is something that I noticed about Sondra Roberts bags while I perusing her site and finding other things to love...

    Like this one...


    This one...


    And oh my! Will you look at this one...


    And I want this one, too...


    And be still my purse loving heart, I'm sure I need...


    ...this clutch, too.

    And I know I'm getting off track but...

    What I'm really grooving on is the attention to detail.

    And not just the lovely outside details either. One of my issues with big purses it that they end up being Grand Canyons of clutter; but the Sondra Roberts bags have slip pockets and zipper combinations (both inside and outside) and I love that for neat storage.

    The other thing is big bags never have long straps and I got a long strap for my bag. And I absolutely love my long strap! It's never been a option before on a large bag and I've been going up to perfect strangers raving about my long strap.

    And okay, they think I'm odd but I don't know about you - I've never seen large purses with the option of a long strap and it's rockin'. I've always wondered why I can't have a long strap...and now I can. I'm a happy, happy gal.

    The purse is done in a fabric the color of a Creamsicle and seriously, what could be better than that? I love a bright color in the winter that pops against winter darks - and this does.

    So do you want to win a Creamsicle colored handbag of your very own? Or perhaps win it to giveaway? Comment here by DECEMBER 5, 2009, 12 a.m. eastern time.

    Plus, I am on my way to Sondra Roberts. Too late for the drool warning.

    The Mom (aka Amy) 11/23/09, 6:20 PM  

    Ooo, oooh, me, me! Pick me...Pick me...Pick me.

    I want a purse. Another purse. Okay I have a problem, but I don't care. I want another one!

    Karen Smith 11/23/09, 6:23 PM  

    Yes I must also figure out the subscribe thing.
    I think that this purse is the perfect answer to loosing a few more pounds. Of course though orange is suppose to stimulate the appetite. But not to worry I can just suck away on this gorgeous purse dreaming its a creamy dreamsicle. Should take the weight off right away!

    Cute purse! I think my favorite on your post today is the white/cream colored one with the zippers....CUTE! Off to check out the site!

    RobinAnn 11/23/09, 8:12 PM  

    That's a great purse. I love it.

    Patricia C 11/23/09, 8:37 PM  

    Absolutely love the bag. I would keep this baby for me.

    ladyjanewriter 11/23/09, 9:58 PM  

    Wow. I really don't have the XX "purse gene" at all! I don't personally care for ANY of them. If it's not black with topstitching and silver detail, or look like an old fashioned Doctor's Bag, Flight Bag, Gramma Handbag, or Bowling Bag, my heart just doesn't go pitty-pat.

    This is a good thing, though! That means you ladies can duke it out over the purses.

    Debbie 11/23/09, 10:00 PM  

    Very nice. That would be cool to win.

    Mike 11/23/09, 10:56 PM  

    Doing it again just in case the other didn't come thru...
    I love purses.. been searching for about 2 months for a new purse. have a hard time deciding..

    That is a fabulous purse. I can see myself wearing it (hint-hint) everyday and taking such good care of it. Everytime I open it I will think of you. Hows that?
