Product Review: Third Willow

Spring is near!  We're having some dreary, rainy days here in my neck of the woods.  And I'll happily take rain over more snow, thank you very much.  Rain can be fun to dress up for too, don't you think?  That's exactly what I did on Tuesday after receiving the most lovely clutch purse from Third Willow.

I was so excited about the opportunity to review an item from Third Willow.  And when it arrived, it was even more beautiful than I expected!  I adore the ruffle detailing and all the handy pockets inside!  Being a 'large purse' kind of girl, I wasn't sure a clutch would suit my needs, but this one's a very comfortable size...not too small, not too big.  My cards, phone, and access card each have their own pocket for easy retrieval.  So it's practical and fabulous...good attributes for a purse. 

The leather is obviously's quite soft and luxurious.

I feel so chic carrying this baby lie.  Though I chose to dress it up classy-like for the first wear, I totally see myself using it for a trendy, casual look too.  Like maybe some distressed jeans, tee and blazer with high heels or boots...oh yeah.

Fellow Minnesotan Bill is the artist behind the lovely designs at Third Willow.  In celebration of his upcoming birthday, you can purchase any regular priced item in his Etsy shop and receive 30% off your order.  Here's what you do:  purchase the item at full price and in the "message to buyer" add the greeting "happy birthday" to receive a 30% refund.  Offer good through March 19.  Somebody might want to snatch up the adorable leather flower key chain before I can find my credit card.  I've been using that golf's definitely time for an upgrade.

Uhm, about that keychain... too late, I totally bought it.

I love the clutch! It looks fantastic with the outfit as well. I am thinking I should invest in one for formal occasions like weddings and parties--they ARE so chic!

You have completely sold me on the clutch. Pockets for a cell phone and wallet, brilliant! I will be checking them out ASAP.

But that outfit is just...gorgeous. Everything about it is gorgeous.
