Last week, I mentioned that August is Capitol Hill Style’s birthday month. Born from the boredom of a four-week recess and a desire to guide the cadre of 22-year-old ladies who come to D.C. each year seeking their fortune, this blog has now been dishing up fashion and career advice for five years. (Boy, I feel old.) To celebrate, I’ll be hosting a weekly giveaway for some of Capitol Hill Style’s most loved products starting with a Lo & Sons bag.
From Left, the OMG and OG, the Brookline Laptop Tote, the Claremont Camera Bag and the Catalina Beach Bag
Last year, when Lo & Sons contacted me about reviewing their handbags, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. From the moment I opened the box, a love affair began. The bags are durable, chic and cavernous (in the best possible way). They hold laptops, workout clothes, legal-size files and any workday essentials you might need.
I use mine as a carry-on, a gym bag and a work bag. Miss M carries her OMG with her everywhere and is always surprised how many people stop to ask her who makes it. And even out in sleepy Montana, my Mother is constantly asked where other teachers can buy a “magic bag” like hers.
The winner of this giveaway will receive the Lo & Sons bag of her choice in the color of her choice. Choose a beach bag, a camera bag or a work tote, the choice is yours.
To enter, leave a comment answering the question: What is the strangest thing I carry in my everyday bag?
Don’t forget to sign in using your real e-mail address so we can contact you if you win. And please, PLEASE, please comment only once and do not reply to other people’s comments. Duplicate comments and replies throw off the count and will be deleted.
And if you’re not willing to take your chances with the whims of cruel fate, Derek at Lo & Sons was kind enough to offer a 15-percent-off discount code that can be used on their website to purchase the bag of your choice. The code is CAPITOLHILLSTYLESUMMER and will work through the end of August.
