Every so often you stumble upon a new designer and just have to bonk yourself in the forehead and wonder out loud "um? where have I been to have not known about these company?! They rock!"  And thats just how I felt when introduced to Spartina 449.  Having spent 4 years in South Carolina for college, I loved finding this SC island based brand.  You can spend a lot of time drooling over their website full of quality leather and canvas handbags and wallets.  Especially right now with all their new spring patterns.  Makes me wish I was out to eat in Hilton Head or Charleston dressed up to sip a mint julep on the patio -- cute bag in toe of course.

I was beyond thrilled to get to style a couple of pieces -- the hollecker leather bag + a snap wallet.  This bag is instant fave.  Great size for regular personal purse items, plus the "mom extras"... a diaper, paci, yaknow.  Other parts I love about this bag is that it has a removable strap, but particularly about this feature is I love how the hooks are hidden when the strap isn't in use, so it's not all like "oh snap, that girl lost her strap," and the bag looks perfectly functional both ways.  And thumbs up to the wallet too.  Sleek design snap shut and well organized on the inside to see what you need when you need it.

But don't let me steer you wrong that handbags and wallets are all Spartina 449 carry.  They've got great accessories, jewelry, and resort gear too!

The Giveaway:
One of the things I love about Spartina is that their products are so intentionally designed.  So much thought goes into each piece's creation that all the patterns have not just their own name, but their own story.  The giveaway today is for two pieces with the Quarterdeck pattern -- a scarf + tassele wristlet wallet ($80 combined value):


"Ceremonious receptions for officers and those offering respect to a ship and its captain occur on the most revered area of a sailboat, the Quarterdeck. Marked off by decorative lines and classic knotting, the Quarterdeck is traditionally known as the raised deck behind the main mast of a tall ship where the colors are also stored. Today, flags are often used to decorate maritime establishments on land to resemble the shipboard quarterdecks. The Quarterdeck pattern represents esteemed nautical designation and seafaring tradition."

So... good looking functional pieces that come with their own story/conversation starter.  So you can really dress to impress with these pieces!
