Review and Giveaway: Twisted Orchid ***CLOSED***

Happy Monday!!! :D
I am happy to start the week with a review and a giveaway!

A couple of months ago, I received a bag from to review for you guys.
They had quite a selection (which made it really hard to choose, haha!), and I chose this:

Black Doc Supreme.

Before we continue with my review though, here is a little something about Twisted Orchid:

Twisted Orchid is a premium shopping destination for stylishly chic purses and handbags.

Based in Chicago, it is our committment to supply fashion-savvy women with must-have styles at a great value. Our attention to quality and detail is high, so rest assured you will be impressed with the glamour and luxury that is a cornerstone of every Twisted Orchid handbag and accessory. So whether you're an accessory gal who wants to test out a trend before deciding on a big splurge, or you're a fashionista who prefers to shop for fabulous steals -- Twisted Orchid has the right piece just for you.


Their shipping is reliable and fast -- I received my bag within a week!


I was so excited to see and use my bag! ;)


Their bags are packaged really well, so you can be sure that your order will arrive in perfect condition.
They also come with a white pouch to store your bag in -- it definitely makes storage easier.

Black Doc Supreme


New For Spring 2012! When it comes to fashion, thinking outside the seam is always in good taste.
Designed for the woman who carries her life around in her handbag, this double handled shoulder bag comes with an additional strap in case you want to wear it cross body. The bag has a top zipper closing, an inside zippered compartment, plus two open pockets.

Dimensions : 15.5 L x 9 H x 6.25 W x 10

Price: $72

"Designed for the woman who carries her life around in her handbag" -- that pretty much describes all of us, right?! ;)

There are a lot of things that I absolutely cannot leave the house without, and I love how this bag can carry all of my stuff. The size is just right -- not too small, not too big.

I also love how the Doctor's bag-style keeps the bag structured and standing upright -- it's not flimsy, so I don't have to worry about my things getting all mixed up inside.


I chose this particular bag because I love how classic the look, shape, and style are.
This is a bag that will never go out of style, I just know I will use this for many years to come.

I often carry it as it is (in the same way I carry my Louis Vuitton Speedy bag), but whenever I want a more casual feel or whenever I need my hands to be free (like in school), the strap really comes in handy.
I like how they included the strap to give us more of an option.

At $72, I think this is definitely worth it! :)
