You might remember, back in December we partnered with Luxaholics to bring you the 12 Days of Handbags Giveaway. Thanks to the great partnership as well as the many designers who donated gorgeous bags, the giveaway was nothing short of amazing. Well, it is time for another great collaboration. This time Purse Blog and Luxaholics are partnering with the fabulous exotic handbag designer, Adriana Castro.

May Collaboration

While the actual dates for the giveaway are being ironed out (I will tell you that it will be sometime in May) we all thought our amazing readers would love to be part of the creative process. The giveaway will last for 5 Days and thus, you have the opportunity to select which colors you’d like used for the bags. How awesome is that? Not only do you have a chance to win, but also a chance to vote on your favorite colors for the bags. Enjoy and remember, your vote makes a difference.

    I’m confused – is the voting closed? It says “The giveaway will last for 5 Days and thus, you have the opportunity to select which colors you’d like used for the bags. How awesome is that? Not only do you have a chance to win, but also a chance to vote on your favorite colors for the bags. Enjoy and remember, your vote makes a difference. ” – Where do you vote?!?!?

  • Rochelle K

    What the heck? Disregard last comment because for some reason as soon as I posted it – the options to vote opened up (it just stated results before). That was weird…

  • No problem Rochelle. I’m glad there aren’t any glitches! :)

    (the last giveaway was for US citizens only)

  • vikauz

    wonderfull colors, can’t wait to see what they look like



  • QueenCatherine

    I love seeing true deep saturated colors back into handbags. They become more of an accesory rather than just a place to haul all our treasures. The purple in any of the samples , is a refreshing and exciting choice…the color of royalty~yet so blendable and almost neutral when part of the big picture of an outfit.

    And in the snakeskin, in my opinion..the closer to natural the better. The snakeskin can be worn with anything and bring a touch of elegance to anything from jeans to cocktail dresses.

    Fashion is exciting now and accesories have never played such an important role in the look and feel of an outfit.

    Thanks for the chance to vote and enter…this was so much fun!

  • irishgrl

    Love them all!! So hard to vote…

  • Maria Cummings


  • gina

    These colors are so pretty! Love them!

  • Olivia

    Basically I love all the colors but my favorite one is those colors that are not too much in lighter, the reason is because of the texture of the leather. It’ll be so perfect at the end touched with not that light of color, make it become more exotic!

  • Alycia

    I love the colors and textures! I have always like the luxe look of python, and purple is so regal and popular this year. I love hot pink, silver, yellow and green as well. The multi purple python is a beautiful mix of colors as well. Can’t wait so see these bags!!!!!
