Winner Announcement for the @NicoleMillerNYC Addison Handbag Giveaway on @Ascending1 + this month's holiday #handbag #giveaway

Winner Announcement!:

After the feature being on hiatus so long, it was no surprise that October's Featured Monthly Handbag in the spotlight garnered a ton of entries! It took me awhile to close this one because before I even draw a winner, I eliminate all entries that did not comply with giveaway instructions. All 'blank' entries etc. This way when I go to draw a winner, only qualified entries are in the running. I know oftentimes people are under the assumption that when bloggers use rafflecopter we just draw and if that winner did not comply with instructions we just re-draw, I can't speak for everyone, but I refuse to do that. I eliminate all dis-qualified entries first THEN draw the winner. So my actual entry numbers for any given drawing may go 'down' after it closes which most people wouldn't want, but I like the drawings to be fair and only the folks who played by the rules get the chance to win!


Our October Featured Monthly Handbag in the Spotlight Nicole Miller Addison Handbag Giveaway Winner is Naomi S. Hers was entry #227!

Join me in congratulating Naomi!

  1. Thank you, Tracy! The Addison bag is absolutely gorgeous (I had no idea you could pattern and metallicize leather like that- it is unbelievably cool) and I think you might have made me a crossbody convert...

    1. @Naomi Shapiro - Congratulations Again! I felt the same way, the pattern and it being a metallic gave it such an 'edge' I fell in love with it also! As a daily commuter I need crossbody bags, so when I get the chance to present one that is super unique I jump on it!

      Enjoy your new bag!
