Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

giveaway: brahmin carmela hobo

Pin It

May 26th, 2011 · Print Print

And now, the moment you guys have been waiting for!  Brahmin so generously offered to give away three bags to my readers!  This Carmela hobo is the first, and having seen it in person, I can attest to how stunning it really is.

I’m pretty sure snakeskin is the ultimate fabric this summer, and I love how Brahmin combined the versatile tan leather with the super-chic white snakeskin panels.  As you can see from the pictures, this bag can clearly go uptown or down.

To enter, do one (or both) of the following:

  • Leave a comment below, or
  • Follow @sugarlaws on Twitter, and tweet the following: Win a Brahmin bag from @sugarlaws! Click here: http://goo.gl/PYcd8

US shipping only.  Winners will be announced next week!

UPDATE: The winner is comment 25, Alana Margaret!  I’ll be emailing today for your address!

    This Brahmin Carmela Hobo bag is an elite, daring, sophisticated and unique handbag.  This handbag can be worn on any women of fashion.  Brahmin wears well and this Brahmin Carmela Hobo can be worn on any occasion.  This handbag can be worn to work, to the mall, to a party, on a cruise, to church and very well on me.  What other brand of handbags wears like Brahmin?

  • 128 Mary Carrillo // May 26, 2014 at 5:56 pm

    I love the purse.  Can’t afford it at this time. Trying to work 2 jobs to buy one.
