parazul | review + giveaway

It seems as though it's "handbag-central" around here lately -- and, I've got another great one to share! Parazul sent me one of their "signature" scarf bags. It arrived in a turquoise, flannel dust-bag...
Inside ...
a White Scarf Bag! At first, I wasn't sure how I would like the white - but, the quality - speaks for itself when seen in person. The bag is constructed from a modern, coated canvas. (very easy to clean! I actually got a little smudge on it & was able to easily wipe it off with a baby white) I absolutely love the nautical-feel that the included scarf + logo charm gives to this bag! At Parazul, you can "build a bag" - choose color, scarf, + charm! Purchase extra scarves + charms to create new looks, too.
This particular bag is practically a tote -- it could easily be used as a diaper bag or to hold a small laptop/netbook. The interior is lined in Parazul's signature turquoise, along with several pockets/zipper-compartments.
(Something I was really impressed with - the zipper! This might seem silly, but I really appreciate a quality-zipper.. and this bag has one!) ;-)
And - I really appreciate that their are little "feet" on the bottom of the bag, too.
Overall, the Scarf Bag is of the upmost in quality -- I am beyond impressed. I know that I will have this bag for years to come thanks to it's classic styling and quality-construction.
**
Giveaway! I am beyond excited to be able to offer a giveaway from Parazul as well! One very lucky winner will win the Beige Classic Bag! (pictured below) - it retails for $250. The pictured scarf + logo charm are included. This is actually one of my favorites from their site - so chic!
mandatory: Visit Parazul + comment with what your favorite bag is or describe how you'd build-a-bag.
