Pink Tulips

The lovely Anette from Pink Tulips sent me the most gorgeous leather handbag last week and I am in love! A little excerpt from the website:
"My name is Annette Cook, and I grew up in a small Connecticut town where the school colors might as well have been pink and green. Lilly Pulitzer was regarded as a Goddess. When The Preppy Handbook was published, no one in town thought it was a joke. But while I no longer wear polo shirts with the collars starched up, I will always have a soft spot for the finer things that celebrate that identity – crisp lines, oh-so-perfect color combinations, and the persnickety attention to detail that is visible only to those who recognize good quality."- via Pink Tulips
I am not kidding when I say that I gasped when I opened the package. The bag is all leather with red ostrich tabs and a gorgeous striped fabric lining. The hardware is all gold. It reminds me of something that you would see Betty Draper sporting in Mad Men. It is the perfect timeless, classic, ladylike handbag. Whether your 22 or 62, this is the perfect handbag... See for yourselves...

This was before a night out. My shirt was over-the-top so this bag helped to tone down the sequined shirt. 

Isn't the lining so unique and fun?!
 
The bag was the perfect thing to dress up an oxford shirt on my way out to lunch. 

Mac tried to steal the bag once or twice... I think he's jealous. 

I tried to get him to give it back... 

To top it all off, this fabulous bag is made right here in the U.S.! If you have been reading Summer Wind for a while now, then you know that I feel strongly about supporting products made in the U.S.A. The bag is simply gorgeous and looks and feels luxurious. Plus, the ever so stylish Sarah Vickers of Classy Girls Wear Pearls also sports her Pink Tulips handbags from time to time!

My Pink Tulips wish list is quickly growing starting off with the mini clutch.

Then the whimsical tapestry bag.

And this gorgeous forest green number.

Have you shopped Pink Tulips? What is your favorite bag? A big thank you to Anette for sending me this gorgeous handbag! Have a fabulous day! 
Yours,
