The French. They’re pretty much more chic than we are in every. single. way. Don’t believe me? Watch a Godard film where even the poorest of characters look like a million bucks in a dingy trench coat and flats, or marvel at how even elderly French women command attention and have such presence with something as simple as a loosely knotted scarf. The Parisian aesthetic is notoriously understated, enduring, and something we all try to get our hands on – a little like today’s giveaway.
My Biotiful Bag
Image my glee when My Biotiful Bag reached out to me. Sleek, simple, endlessly functional designs from France that are also vegan, eco-friendly, and affordable. C’est bon! They’ve got all the basics covered with easy-breezy totes for hitting up the farmer’s market, gym bags that double as overnight bags, a weekender that is perfect for jet-setters and new parents alike, darling clutches, cute cross bodies, and the two bags I’m giving away today.
You heard that right, kids – two bags. That means we will have two winners! Double your pleasure, double your fun, right?
Make a French Connection
MBB doesn’t just talk the eco-talk – they walk it. All bags are intentionally vegan (I think this is an important distinction to make) and made from:
- RPET – Recycled Poly Ethylene Terephthalete – Recycled plastic bottles are transformed into small plastic particles and create a less pollutive, light and waterproof material, similar to nylon.
- Certified Organic Cotton
- Non-Toxic Dyes – Anti-allergenic and anti-carcinogenic and which are obtained from natural sources such as roots, minerals, and vegetables.
Oh, and everything’s really freaking cute (like, no lie).
There’s a lot to fall in love with with this line, but I especially love this handy and oh-so-simple-it’s-indispensable knapsack. Roomy, durable canvas made from recycled plastic bottles, chic drawstring and buckle, patch pockets for stashing little secrets, and a look that’s timeless. I’m giving one away in classic navy as seen here. Can’t you see yourself biking around town with this cutie on your back?
For the workaholics and technologically-inclined among us, this large laptop case is a dream. Decidedly Jack Spade-esque but with an eco-friendly spin. I selected the dark black with tan trim because it’s classic as hell and perfectly unisex. [ So, gents, jump on this giveaway, too. ]
Enter here to win! The first winner will select the back of his/her choice and the second winner will receive the remaining bag (both are hawt, so it’s a win-win). Only open to US entrants, but fear not, my international pals, I have giveaways coming for you that will ship your way (it’s also extra helpful if you leave a nice comment letting me know from where you hail, so I have a sense of folks who see these giveaways, but aren’t able to access them).
