Nicole Miller Addison Crossbody Handbag Giveaway!


Nicole Miller Logo


Monthly Featured Handbag In The Spotlight Is Back! 

Butterflies my apologies, this is one of our longest standing regular Features (monthly since 2009) and because of my back-to-back hospitalizations the feature took a hiatus during the summer this year and this is the longest time that has ever elapsed without us featuring a new Handbag of the Month. I am super excited to be bringing this feature back! A HUGE Thank You to Nicole Miller, the bags sent to me for review arrived quite awhile ago, but with me being in the hospital I had to push back the Feature, so I thank them AND YOU so much for your respective patience.

I can tell you that it is going to be so worth the wait! Nicole Miller's team totally surprised me, when they sent me not one, but 5 bags! And because I made you guys wait so long, I'm giving you the Featured Bag which you will see after the review bags. Here is what I received:

Nicole Miller Lexi Techno Metal Clutch:

Top Left: Lexi Techno Metal Clutch in Black closed, Top Right: Nicole Miller Lexi Techno Metal Clutch in Black Open to show organizational components and strap. Above: Nicole Miller Lexi Techno Metal Clutch in Teal - Don't you just love the rouching detail?


As a public transportation commuter here in New York City, I have always featured crossbody handbags and owned no clutches. I normally carry so much with me that clutches have never been truly practical for my lifestyle. But now as a blogger with many event invites and many of them cocktail evening events, I had been needing a clutch and was in the market for one when the amazing package arrived from Nicole Miller. The Lexi Techno Metal Clutches are fantastic, they have the chain strap which allows me to have my hands free when I need to, and they have a sophisticated styling that allows them to be paired with almost any evening outfit in your closet. A good clutch really is an Accessories Wardrobe Staple. Oddly enough my Grandmother and Mom both have an assortment of great clutches, and it's one thing I didn't have in my wardrobe until now. And I think Nicole Miller may have created a Monster, because now I find myself seriously looking at clutches!

The Nicole Miller Lexi Techno Metal Clutch is a Structured techno metal box clutch with rouching detail and an 18” drop down chain shoulder strap, distressed nickel hardware finish and a Clasp Closure.

Product Specifications:

SKU: NM200T
Catalog Number: CT38-208519

Nicole Miller Lexi Sting Ray Clutch

Lexi Stingray Clutch in Black and bronze, Top: Inner Organizational Lining


Black Stingray with Black Lamb Leather, It is a structured Box Clutch with Optional Drop Down Jewelry Shoulder Strap, this super snazzy clutch is all blinged out for evening! Its the one you wear when you are making a statement with not only your Fashion Tastes but your Fashion Accessories as well. If any clutch can call itself A Statement Clutch, Nicole Millers Lexi Sting Ray Clutch certainly can.

And if you think its pretty in Black, check her out in Bronze!

Isn't  she a total chic showoff? ;)


The girl with no clutches, now has 4, and not just any four, four amazing wardrobe boosters in the Nicole Miller Lexi! Both the Lexi Techno Metal Clutch and the Lexi Stingray have received numerous compliments when Ive worn them out on the town. Im partial to the Techno Metal Clutch in the Teal, and while I love the Stingray in both colors, the Bronze really does stand out a bit more. And since my wardrobe does have a lot of dark colors, having the clutch in black is almost an essential.

Nicole Miller Handbags Addison Mini Crossbody

And now, its time for YOU, I am giving you the bag that when Nicole Miller was asked about what are the hottest accessories shoes and bags of the season, she answered My bicycle chain bags. I love them and they look really new.

I have to admit I highly agree, there is something so punk and unexpected about the Addison Mini Crossbody bicycle chain handbag, it's that detail on the mixed strap, part bike chain, part leather, and it an almost silver and bronze color to the bag, its tough meets city chic in a way that totally works, it literally just ups the cool factor of your outfit 100%

  • 25" shoulder drop.
  • Bike chain crossbody strap.
  • Magnetic closure.

She asked us to share the Addison Bag with our readers which leaves me with the clutch bags. The ones way out of my comfort zone. But I have been rocking them at events lately and getting tons of compliments about them! This has totally re-shaped my attitude on the clutch style! I think 2013 will be me with more clutch style bags! (even if I have to carry a little less to pull it off!)

My Take:

I have greatly enjoyed being able to try out a wide variety of Nicole Miller handbag styles, they are fashion forward, well-designed and super stylish!

  1. My favorite was my B.Makowsky red leather bag that I got for Christmas last year (it just broke last month boo hoo). It was such a great deep red color and it was ultra soft and functional too!
    love it I'm still mourning its demise.

  4. My favorite bag is a Stone Mountain black leather tote bag that I have had for ages and still looks beautiful. Right now I carry a "vintage" (haha! that's how old it is, but I love it, too!)smallish Coach purse just big enough for the essentials, so everything else is in my tote, and it goes most everywhere with me.

    1. I haven't tried out Stone Mountain yet, but after your rave review I will certainly have to look into them!

      Coach is certainly an iconic brand, I'd love to have them collaborate with us for the Featured Monthly Handbag in the Spotlight! :)

  5. I love that bicycle chain strap and the stingray clutches are gorgeous. My favorite bag of all time was a bucket style that cinched with a drawstring. It was black leather and I remember wanting it for a while. My stepfather got it for my birthday and it was such an extravagant gift, I was really surprised. I carried it for years.

  17. I have a black leather Botkier purse that is my all-time favorite. In fact, I just pulled it out yesterday!

    I love how roomy it is, how the inner pockets perfectly hold my things and all of the gold accents, snaps and chains.

    Thanks!

  18. I usually spend a minimal amount on my bags, so I havent really had any favorites, but I did have a really unique Coach change purse that my husband bought me. It had a weird kind abstract textured butterfly on it, I loved it because it was so different looking & it was a gift from him that he chose on his own. I used it so much the clasp would no longer stay closed & it was kind of grungy looking.

  19. I hate to say this but I've never had a purse that has been a particular favorite. Just run on the mill black purses all the way around

  20. My favorite bag was a Coach handbag that I was given as a gift. Unfortunately, it was stolen at my workplace last year =( I liked it because the colors went with everything and it was compact but spacious inside.

  22. My fave was a beautiful Gucci tote that lasted for many, many years of work and travel. Maybe I should have held onto the (generous) boyfriend who gave it to me!

  23. I have never had a favorite handbag nor a designer bag until just recently I received a Tommy Hilfiger black Signature Jacquard Tote with Tassel. I just switched purses today. It's a beautiful bag and has so much room, so I guess it's now my favorite.
