Twisted Orchid review and giveaway


A couple of weeks ago I promised to tell you more about my new Twisted Orchid handbag, and here's the inside look! Keep reading and you'll see why I'm excited to be taking this handbag with me to the BlogHer conference this August.

But first, a bit more information about Twisted Orchid...

The Basics (from the Twisted Orchid site)
Twisted Orchid is a premium shopping destination for stylishly chic purses and handbags. From the pages of People Style Watch to Lucky, Elle and Oprah, trendspotters and fashion provocateurs alike are buzzing about our incredible selection...

And with our secure online shopping, guaranteed delivery, and 30-day hassle free returns, buying from Twisted Orchid is convenient and absolutely risk free!

The Bongga
I'm amazed at the incredible selection available on the Twisted Orchid site! There are just so many cute bags to choose from! I particularly love the animal-friendly leather tote they sent me to review because no animals had to die for me to feel chic and stylish. It is slick, snakeskin-ish and shiny. It's also very practical; it's nice and roomy so you can tote everything you need, with 3 zippered compartments so you can keep your stuff organized.



And speaking of animal-friendly, they've also got a great line of eco-friendly totes, messenger bags and bamboo handbags. How's that for a stylish way to celebrate Earth Day!

The Blah
So far, nothing bad to report! This tote bag is holding up, it's easy to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) and it looks great.

The Bottom Line
Twisted Orchid is your one-stop shop for chic and stylish bags.


Win a Twisted Orchid Bag
One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will win a Twisted Orchid bag up to $75 value!
