My Fave New Handbag and $575 Amazon Gift Card Raffle

Happy Monday and did you have any idea that it would be so cold this morning. It is definitely still winter, thanks Mr Groundhog!! I had a blog shoot outside earlier and it was in the 30’s!! Hope you are all staying warm!! I wanted to share with you my favorite new handbag by Meli Melo. I found it at the Tootsie’s sale recently and loved the color combo, especially the pink detailing. You can actually find it on the Meli Melo website in my exact color combo – Thela Medium Tote Bag Elephant + Blush Pink. They have free shipping worldwide. You can find these bags on ShopBop and here is the Medium Thela in tan. I really like this version in taupe. I also found these bags online at Bloomingdales. The larger Thela comes in several colors but I really like the larger Thela in Taupe/Silver. You can also pop into your local Tootsie’s store (Dallas, Houston or Atlanta) and check out their selection. And a big bonus for the next two weeks is the chance to win an Amazon Gift Card. See details below to enter!! Time for some shopping. 

The reason I love this bag is because it is almost like a little file cabinet. I have to carry a lot of things around but I hate a handbag that is too deep and everything falls to the bottom or the top is too narrow and it is difficult to dig anything out. This bag is very well constructed and carefully engineered. You can see that I carried it by the two shorter straps and I have become obsessed with not having to carry it on my shoulder all the time. It has two pockets on the inside (one zips) and one is larger because I think the cell phones have gotten so big that handbag designers have given up making a pocket that is a perfect fit. The flap has a magnetic closure and you can also clip the opposite sides together which would be great for travel. The leather is soft and but it stands up on its own. This Thela style comes in mini, medium and large. Meli Melo also makes different styles but you will not see this bag on everyone. I had fun showing it on my last blog featuring JD Williams Spring Trends (you can still get a 40% discount with code DEBBY40)

Thank you for reading my shortest blog post ever. I wanted to show you this cute bag and let you know about my first ever Amazon Gift Card Raffle. See the details below. I think these raffles are fun and a great way to get some cash for shopping. I assure that there is a winner every time. I hope it will be you!!! XO Debby
