Win a 50.00 gift certificate to the Dear Miss Modern Shop!
I admit it, this contest is totally spur of the moment. Here’s how it happened:
This morning, while on the phone with the DMV trying to renew my registration, I was digging through my handbag looking for my credit card (which is normally in my wallet, but after holiday shopping last night I just threw it in there). Now this bag can also double as a suitcase, or a carrier for a small child. It’s HUGE. In fact last week I had a roll of fishing line, a pair of black heels, a blow dryer, 2 rolls of scotch tape and a brush that did not fare too well with the roll of fishing line (it ended up a hot tangled mess). Holiday decorating and a photo shoot are the reason for all the strange additions, but it’s always SOMETHING. My point is this: the rest of my life is not a disaster, so why is my handbag? My theory is that no matter the size of your bag, you will fill it up with crap you don’t need.
After not being able to find my card (I did, however, find a large plastic giraffe) I had to hang up with the DMV and start over. I very much dislike wasting time…..so I emptied out the ENTIRE contents of the bag on the kitchen table and started over. Waaaaaay to many receipts, change, about a thousand pens, and oh, finally – a credit card. As I organized everything out that gets to go back in to (a much smaller) handbag, it reminded me of those magazine shoots where they ask people (mostly celebrities I guess, because we for some reason care about what they haul around) “what’s in your handbag?”
I have always LOVED to see what people carry around actually, and what they carry it in…so here’s the contest:
1. Tell us the craziest thing in your handbag at this very moment here on the blog and on our facebook page- HERE (post right on the wall…people will wonder……).
2. Send a photo of your handbag contents to: firstname.lastname@example.org (feel free to leave out anything we shouldn’t see of course). Not necessary to win, but fun.
Two winners will be chosen ( by us) on Friday December 9th, and will each receive a 50.00 gift certificate to the Dear Miss Modern Shop.
