A handbag is a very personal thing. From the color of your choice to the style you prefer, it is all about your personal preference. Whether you a tote girl or a hobo chick is completely up to you. If you like bright colors or neutrals, that is entirely your call too. Who am I to stand in your way?
It is not just the handbag you purchase, but what goes inside it as well. Does yours contain only the most necessary essentials? Could you reach in there and find just about anything you could ever possibly need in case of an emergency or a pending zombie apocalypse? As my kids have gotten older the number of items in my bag has dropped considerably. Come to think of it, most of the contents in there are actually for me now. How’s that for taking back my purse? So there, kiddos. Watch out, because my car is next on the list.
In the past I have purchased two handbags, make that three handbags, from Big Buddha. Two for everyday use and one for evening. Lucky me, I also received one as a gift from some friends who know my taste well. (Like we already said, you can’t trust just anyone to know your style preferences.) They are versatile, fun, lightweight and wear very well, lasting me several years each.
So when the folks at Big Buddha asked if I would like to give away not one, but two handbags to lucky readers, I jumped at the chance. Not only do I love their styles, the entire line of Big Buddha bags is under $100. That makes it a great price point to buy one for yourself and to buy one as a gift. In case you haven’t heard, Mother’s Day is coming up! You can get one for that person in your life – mom, sister or friend – whose taste only you know so well. (Hint. Hint.)
And no animals will be harmed in the making of your pure, as each Big Buddha bag is 100% vegan, animal-friendly and cruelty-free. (That was what first drew me to check out the brand several years ago.) The line has been featured on the pages of In Style, Lucky, Teen Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, Cosmopolitan, 0 Magazine, Marie Claire and more. Starting as a small company rooted in Santa Cruz, California, Big Buddha was acquired in 2010 by Steve Madden.
Big Buddha bags are animal-friendly, stylish, and won’t break the bank. They appeal to women of all ages too, with collections that resonate with all handbag aficionados, from the purist to the woman bracing for the next zombie apocalypse.
