KURA DESIGNS: Pretty In Pink Review & Giveaway CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED!

It's better to be looked-over than over-looked!



A few weeks ago, Liz and I discovered the beautiful handbags of Margo Schlossberg of KuraDesign.
Margo blessed us with the very beautiful, stylish, and deeply meaningful Pretty In Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Special Bag.

This bag touches us on so many levels. It's simple, yet elegant. It's bold, yet soothing. And it is filled with hope for a future without Breast Cancer.




Margo took her love and concern for those who have suffered with Breast Cancer and designed a bag that expresses the brave, enduring spirit of those who have fought and won.
Liz and I love this bag -- for that reason and more.

The bag is... stunning. The pictures you see just cannot do it justice. It's no lightweight piece of fluff, either! It's has substance (a tribute to Margo's forethought!). The long chain and brass-styled metal fittings are slightly heavy and the beading adds a bit of weight, too. But it isn't too heavy or clumsy in any way.
The finial on the snap-top closure is studded with rhinestones to add that bit more glamour to the bag. It's a joy to carry this bag.

I'm so pleased that the bag can be carried in three different ways, too: as a cross-body or on the shoulder (with the chain) or just by the handles.

The beads... what can I say? I love beaded bags! They add so much flair and panache to a handbag! The pink and white stripes give this bag energy and movement.

The interior is a luscious chocolate brown with a small zippered pocket for small items. It holds a fairly large amount of items as well. I had my phone, small change purse / ID holder, comb, and keys in it!

There is nothing I dislike about this bag.

It's the bag I'll be carrying this week when Mike and I celebrate our 20th Anniversary. (4 days and counting!)

Liz and I are dedicated to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research and we have a deep respect for Companies that support the cause. KuraDesign is one of those companies.

From the website:
Pretty in Pink, to help breast cancer awareness. 10% of the proceeds of this bag will go towards helping young women with breast cancer. Look gorgeous while you help the fight.





Margo also offers lovely, whimsical hairbands and barettes for Breast Cancer Awareness. They are available on the KuraDesign Website





KuraDesign also makes other gorgeous handbags! Each one more beautiful than the last. The prices are amazing -- Most of them under $100. I seriously would've expected higher prices for the quality of style, design, and workmanship! Buy Margo's bags and be impressed! Liz and I certainly are!





Margo believes that It's better to be looked-over, than over-looked! and we couldn't agree more! You will definitely NOT be over-looked when carrying one of Margo's bags. Or... wearing one of the delightful headbands, clips, or rosettes!




You can connect with Margo and KuraDesign on her Social Pages:
