Purse Blog and Ignes GiveawayAs I mentioned last week, we are beyond excited to be partnering with Ignes to bring you a fabulous giveaway. What’s up for grabs? An entire travel set: travel bag, shoulder bag and a travel clutch. For all you Ignes fans out there, you might be saying, “travel bag? Ignes doesn’t make travel bags”. They didn’t… until now! So not only are you going to be one of the first people to see it, but after we’ve tallied the votes and the bags are custom made, you’ll also be able to enter to win it!

If you aren’t familiar with Ignes, definitely head over to Ignes and check out everything they have to offer. I am sure you will like what you see. And since Ignes puts together some amazing bespoke bags, we figured, what better way to collaborate on a giveaway than to ask our readers to help design the bags. Now, go have some fun with these options and vote! (more…)

Maria and IgnaciaI am sure many of you are enjoying a wonderful three day weekend! While you are planning any weekend trips or thinking about an delish BBQ coming up this weekend, we have something else for you to get excited about. We are partnering with Ignes Handbags to bring you a wonderful giveaway! I won’t spill all the details now, but make sure to come back on Monday and offer your two cents about what kind of bags you’d like to see custom designed for the giveaway!

Exciting right? Well, while we love bringing you some amazing giveaways, we also love introducing you to some great brands out there. Several of you are very familiar with Ignes over on the tPF (the Purse Forum). Yet, for those of you who aren’t as familiar, I wanted to tell you a bit about the brand. Ignes was founded by the sister-brother team Maria and Ignacio. Ignes has been put on the map due to the fabulous leathers, customizable options and overall individuality. Maria and Ignacio want to provide gorgeous handbags while remaining socially responsible. In fact, Ignes won the Most Socially Responsible Handbag Award at the Handbag Designer Awards. Amazing, right?

One last thing I can’t help but mention… the winner of this giveaway will win a Travel Set (travel bag, shoulder bag and travel wallet). Stay tuned!!

Ignes Handbags

The co-founders (and brother sister duo) of Ignes divulged some of their Valentine’s Day plans:

If you were making Valentine’s Day dinner for your significant other, what would you make and why?
Maria: Mmm, we are both not so great cooks, yet chicken cordon bleu and roesti (swiss potatoes) is a favourite of my husband, I must try and remember how it was made.
Ignacio: I would make a barbecue and then strawberry cake for dessert, Chiara has a very sweet tooth!

Since you are brother and sister, do you make sure to always get one another a Valentine’s Day gift?
Maria: Not really, yet I do help him find something special for his wife, Chiara! She complains that she can’t always receive a handbag for Christmas, birthday, or Valentine’s, since these should arrive to her at different times (no occasion attached!) and she wants an extra effort in the selection when it’s a special occasion. I agree. (more…)

It seems as one of my eternal quests is to find a handbag worthy to be toted around to business meetings. I need a bag that is sophisticated but not stuffy. And let’s no kid ourselves here, as much as we want to be taken seriously in the work place, who doesn’t want to look good doing it? Luckily, I think the Ignes Mini Ormala could be the answer I’ve been looking for. Pictured here in Rasberry, the handbag is also offered in Dark Gray and Metallic Copper which clearly gives a wide range of colors to choose from. I love the double shoulder straps and how the bag is fastened with clasps. Now, if we stick to the idea that this bag could be perfect for business meetings and such, the long leather key strap, two zip pockets, double slit pockets for your cell phone and an iPod just make the handbag seem that much more practical. However, I don’t really want to focus on practicality alone. To me, the bag is gorgeous. As I am just beginning to learn about Ignes handbags, you can always refer to the subforum, Ignes, on the Purse Forum for all sorts of information. And you know, for everything you are getting, the bag is rather reasonable! Buy through Ignes for $380.
