I find that usually within three months of a need/want declaration (i.e. something along the lines of “Ugh, I never have any fun but functional crossbody bags. I’ve got NOTHING. NOTHIIIIIIIIIING.” [screamed Mugatu-style]), I somehow become so fixated on my dire need or desire that I end up near over-populating my wardrobe with the very thing that was once completely nonexistent. There was that “basic, everyday” dress era…then the age of the stackable, delicate bracelet. Now, I’m all about ladylike, fun yet functional crossbody bags, like this stunning Mary Nichols piece.

In my opinion, more often that not this odd phenomenon still works out in my favour…I just wind up having an improved wardrobe at the end of the day. So here’s your chance to upgrade yours – Mary Nichols is giving away her stunning Laura clutch (seen here in red) in pitch perfect emerald, Pantone’s colour of the year. The wear-with-everything clutch (valued at $200) could be all yours in a couple of clicks!

Enter now to nab your very own! Contest is up in one week and is open to all my Canadian and U.S. readers!

    Absolutely gorgeous outfit and I LOVE how the bag completely complements it, something I find super hard to balance.

    Great bag! I definitely do the same! A few weeks ago, all I wanted was a panama hat and I kept fixating on it and seeing pictures of them all over Pinterest. Finally I got one and I'm so happy I did!

    P.S. — you're on my Looks I Love post today!
