That Time I Won A Contest, Part Two.

Is this an obnoxious thing to write about? I hope not. I just thought it would be fun to tell y'all, my Internet blog besties, about the crap I got with my Poshmark contest winnings. Part one is here, and now I'm going to tell you about part two.

I have always thought that windfalls, birthday money, etc should be spend frivolously because we're mostly a practical bunch, right? So, it's a bit of a thrill to just buy something because you love it, not because it's in any way necessary. Like this:

Generally, my style is not very girly - I don't love florals or ruffles or super bright colors but there's always an exception to the rule and mine is Liberty of London. I "hearted" this Liberty Alphabet wristlet pouch on Posh a while back because it's my initial! How could I not? I doubt I would've bought it with my own money, but with prize winnings? Absolutely.

This wristlet is not very practical but it is REALLY cute and it sparks joy for me. The reverse side is dark Iphis print with the truly insane flowered initial on the front. I'll use it when I travel to keep all my charge cords stowed away together and it can double as a evening clutch bag. (An idea I stole from Marianne, obvs.)

Because I feel like we should all have fun zippered wristlet bags, I found a few more that I thought looked really good. This cherry red leather option from Aimee Kestenberg is gorgeous and such a great deal:

This Madewell pouch is perfectly minimal and looks very sleek with a gold monogram:

This J.Crew pouch is basically just amazing and also 40% off:

And this excellent suede/glazed leather Lodis wristlet is actually two pouches that detach, so you can be stylish and crazy organized:

That's all I got! Next week I'll tell you what I spent the rest of my winning on and then I will shut up about it.
