SterlingSewn Giveaway and Reader Discount

SterlingSewn Giveaway and Reader Discount

Mine is the "classic" size. It has an inside pocket, too!

Hi loves! Guess what! I'm so excited to announce that Rachel from SterlingSewn has generously donated any one item currently in the shop (winner's choice!) or a credit of $75 towards a custom order for one of my readers. Since Valentine's Day is almost here, and I can't think of a better gift for the women in my life, I'd like to ask you to nominate your loved ones to win! 


Here's how you win a tote bag for a friend or loved one:
  • Visit SterlingSewn on Etsy.
  • Then, post below telling me which SterlingSewn bag is your favorite and your nominee's first name. That's right, just the first name of the one person you want to win the tote of their choice. 
  • I'll announce the winner on Tuesday here, and you will email me your nominee's contact info.
  • You can also get your nominee two more chances at winning by tagging your nominee on my instagram (@startcloseinstyling) or on SterlingSewn's instagram (@sterlingsewn)! 
Plus, Rachel is offering 10% off for you, my readers, with the code STARTCLOSE10 for the next week! 

To help you visualize how your nominee might use her bag, I took my SterlingSewn "classic tote" on a grocery run with my husband. He called it a date afterwards, but I think that's just because we may have watched The Bachelor episode where Jimmy Kimmel sent them to Costco on a date...






I know the women in your life will love them, too. Happy nominating!

  4. I love the blueish gray hauler tote, which would be perfect as a diaper bag for my husband Peter to use. Something not so girly as the one we have now.
