Above is the photo I entered into the contest. It shows the Mojito Small Tote I was taking to work at the time, along with my Daiquiri PDA, Maldives ID holder (that I kept my work badge in), Skipper Wristlet (that I kept miscellaneous makeup in), and my Gigi iPad Case.
And here's what I won! These three items were a Deux Lux staffer's favorites from the fall collection: the Essex Tote, Foiled Cosmetic Case, and Double Cross Wallet. I was eyeing the Essex Tote but decided I probably wouldn't buy it because it retails for $105 and I already have three or four Deux Lux totes, so when I found out that it was one of the prizes I knew I had to enter the giveaway. It's a gorgeous tote and I love the faux python detailing. I was also really happy that I got the Plum color, because that one was my favorite of the four it comes in!
The Double Cross Wallet is a great size and could easily double as a clutch. It's 9" x 5" and can hold up to 12 cards, and it also has a zip pouch for coins and two bill dividers. I love the color and the gold hardware, and the turn-lock closure is one I've never seen on a wallet before. I'm not currently carrying this wallet because I prefer my Aurora (also by Deux Lux) with the zip closure, but I would definitely use this as a clutch the next time I go out.
The Foiled Cosmetic Case is also beautiful. It's just so shiny! It's a lot bigger than I imagined it would be (6" x 5" x 2.5"), but that's not a complaint. I'm currently using this for when I go to my boyfriend's house (we're long distance) and I keep my travel-sized hair care products in it. I received the gold color, and it also comes in silver and navy.
Bottom Line: I'm so thankful that I won this giveaway! All of the prizes exceeded my expectations, like every other Deux Lux product I've ever owned. If you've never heard of the brand before, I highly encourage you to check them out. Every DL item I have is high quality and well worth the money. If you're on a more limited budget, check out Little Black Bag or Marshall's/TJ Maxx; sometimes they have items from past seasons available.
