Guatemalan Tote

I am a huge fan of big, bright purses that make a bold statement. It's amazing how one item in a wardrobe can draw such attention. Especially when that item is just a normal everyday thing that almost all woman carry. Yep, a purse, handbag, tote, whatever you choose to call it. It can complete any outfit, make you stand out from the crowd, and can be one of the biggest fashion statements you can make.

As a mom of a toddler, I find the need for an oversized bag. This is to cover my items as well as my sons snacks, juice, toys... it all has to fit because I just refuse to carry multiple bags. I was recently given the opportunity to review the Guatemalan Rainbow Fabric and Leather Tote from Battise Fashions. This is a very stylish, oversized purse. The color pattern automatically stood out to me! It features bright teal, orange, and greens popular in Guatemala.. I fell in love! The purse is VERY well made also. The fabric is cotton, but it is really thick and will definitely withstand quite a bit of wear and tear. There is a long adjustable shoulder strap that is removable as well as 2 leather handles. There is a large matching leather pocket on the front that I really found useful. I was actually able to put my sons diapers in there without having to fold them! What a perfect way to make use of space I have never had in a purse before. 

The inside is so spacious. I almost didn't know what to do with it! (of course my son knew it could just hold more toys!) There is an inside zippered pocket that is the length of the purse and can hold quite a bit. I can put all of my lip glosses, mirror, makeup, anything small I want to find easier. It all fits. Then, there is another open pocket that I found holds my checkbook and sun-glass case perfectly. Then of course the wide open space. I had diaper bags in the beginning and let me just say this has more space than my diaper bags ever did! I love how universal this tote is and I can not rave enough about it to everyone I know!

Battise Fasshions carries many other fashionable handbags, totes, clothing and even phone covers! Their latest product is the "scoop purse." This is a really awesome twist on the typical clutch style bag. With the average clutch, many woman just shove it under their arm or have to carry it in their hand. It can look awkward at times and definitely uncomfortable. With the scoop purse, this problem is solved! There is a "scoop" at the bottom that easily allows you to pick up the purse and carry it in one hand! It comes in a variety of designs and is made of italian leather! Yes, these are very high quality bags! And guess what? Battise Fashions is giving one of my lucky readers a chance to win their very own scoop purse! The winner will receive this adorable 'spotted sass' (leopard print design) scoop purse pictured below! Make sure to check them out on Facebook and twitter and enter below for your chance to win! I guarantee you will be just as impressed as I am and will definitely return to Battise Fashions for your future handbag needs!
