Recently I had the pleasure of aligning with a brand that is a true inspiration.
How did this happen you ask? I entered a contest on BSWANKY instagram a month ago to win a gorgeous sugar skull hand bag and I actually won! I was beyond excited. When I went to visit to pick up my bag I was blown away on the brands mission and quality of there products. I knew I wanted to be a part of such an amazing cause.
One of my favorite things about BSWANKY is there workforce is made up of immigrant women who are artisans, all of whom take immense pride in their work. BSWANKY understands these women are part of an undervalued, underutilized and underserved workforce in our country. They get three day weekends, a purse given to them every month on top of their regular pay! How awesome is that. The mission for BSWANKY is to empower women and give back. Two things I highly believe in.
Owner of BSWANKY, Gretchen Bauer is a Sarasota local and her handbags have been in the spotlight with numerous celebrities like: Faith Hill, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Sara Blakely (SPANX Founder), D'Andra Simmons (Real Housewives of Dallas) and so much more!
I also love how there handbags can fit any lifestyle and have so many different unique patterns. They can transform from a Tote to a Versatile Backpack in seconds!
There is an amazing event coming up for BSWANKY and I would for you to join me for a fun evening. The event is on March 16th at 5:30pm and is a party with a purpose! The event will benefit Team Jake and their mission to promote mental health & suicide awareness.
During the event when you buy a box of Cracker Jacks you are entered to WIN a one of a kind Sophie Maverick Sundance, valued at $1200!! One lucky winner will find a winning ticket in their box, and all proceeds go to We Are Team Jake!
You will get to shop & mingle with the wives of all-star Baltimore Orioles & Philadelphia Phillies players all for a great cause! Also all guests and fans get a complimentary, special-edition BSWANKY keychain in Orioles or Phillies colors!

Mark your calendars and I hope to see you there! I already own two stunning bags from BSWANKY so I know I will be adding more to my collection.
