Whoa, baby –what a giveaway! Before I talk about how awesome it is that we’re giving away a Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 bag to celebrate the grand opening of Lola Saratoga’s new location in Stuyvesant Plaza, I have to address the fact that giveaways as amazing as these are probably the #1 downfall to running a company like Two Buttons Deep. Giveaways so good, that it makes me jealous that I can’t enter to win myself. That’s what is happening at this exact moment in time.
I want this!!!!!! But I can’t have it. A) Because I am not eligible to win, or at least I don’t think I am, that wouldn’t seem fair… and B) Because the retail price on a beauty of a bag like this is $1,050 –and this buttonista does not have that kind of cash on hand at the moment.
Jack asked me during the latest 2BD Squadcast (coming out later this week) why someone in their right mind would ever buy something so expensive or even want a designer handbag in the first place. And if you’re a fellow lady out here reading this, you probably know why, right? While I am not super into bags yet –maybe one day when I am rich and famous I will be —bags are a status symbol, and a way to #treatyourself when you hit big life milestones like getting your first “big girl job,” a promotion at work, or literally just want something to make you feel proud and excited to be the boss ass bitch that you are. And if you can rock a Louis Vuitton for free, one that you won fair and square on the internet, well that is just the best case scenario if you ask me.
The ladies at Lola Saratoga agreed with my vision that we had to do something BIG to celebrate their incredible business achievement of being able to open up a second store in Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany, and I was excited to have a new Albany neighbor given the fact I’m technically now an Albany girl too. This store is absolutely gorgeous and it’s a wonderful addition to all the other boutiques and local retailers in the Plaza right now. I’m looking forward to popping in to see these bubbly ladies, shop their (more affordable) jewelry section –especially during the holiday season –and of course gaze at the beautiful gently worn, certified designer handbags until one day I can win someone else’s giveaway and have one for myself.
And you can JOIN ME at the Grand Opening party this Friday from 5-8PM at their new storefront! There will be champagne, special discounts to shop and I will announce the winner of the giveaway at the event, too. Head to @twobuttonsdeep on Instagram for your chance to win!!
