The Sarah Conners Gift

by cecylia on June 18, 2012

Growing up, I never wore anything green because it was my mother’s least favourite colour. As a result, thanks to a mixture of one part rebellion and two part curiosity, I’ve grown to adore the colour. So much so that it is rivalling my passion for pink. It all started with this coat, and then this shirt, and not long after that, this clutch by Sarah Conners. You may recall Theodore’s 12 seconds of fame in the Sarah Conners short film for her new Python Collection. It’s a beautiful clip about my pooch’s desire for snakeskin. Sort of. And like son, like mom…I certainly have a ‘thing’ for exotic skins. Then after styling Sarah’s luxurious python bags for a runway show last Christmas, I’ve been aching for her bags ever since.

Especially this little clutch. The perfect size. 2 pockets. Wrist band. Luxurious texture. You can even store more between the pockets. Tickets, gloves, a novel…just clutch and go. And oh, did I mention the pleasurable feel of the hide? Imagine my operatic elation when Sarah Conners contacted me to GIVE AWAY one of her python clutches to my readers! Yes I have in my hot little hands, something you want!

The perfect little clutch needs the perfect sidekick. A little black dress. But not every LBD is worthy enough for this Python Purse. Uh-uh. Only a Jil Sander velvet creation deemed suitable. The accessories fell organically into place: velvet on velvet; big, gold and shiny, and a ladylike cameo appearance. Ok I digress. Let’s talk about how you can WIN the Sarah Conners clutch! It’s a cinch:

All you need to do is sign up for Sarah Conners updates here then leave a comment below.

For a brownie point, share this post on your Facebook wall :)

The winner will be announced on Monday 2 July. But like me, if you cannot wait that long…check out Sarah’s entire collection here…thank me later :)

Where: Prancing outside a stranger’s house

Wear: Jil Sander dress, Sarah Conners clutch, Vintage earrings, brooch and ring, Scooter heels (similar pair here)

Mica June 18, 2012 at 10:05 pm

LOVE this clutch! I soo want to win it! :D

Have shared on facebook and signed up for email updates, and also fallen in love with the yellow python in her store….so so tempted. Choices though – clutch or bag? I do like the bag that “ate” Theo, it looks a good size, but maybe too much in yellow. Hilarious video by the way, Theo is such a super star!

cecylia June 18, 2012 at 10:30 pm

lol thank you Mica!!! You are amazing. I love the yellow too!!! This comp- it’s the green clutch, I want to wish you the very best!

The big tote is absolutely divine! Sarah Conners uses a green one too :D

Mica June 18, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Thank you! I can see why she uses the green one it’s so pretty. I really like it in that video…..but the yellow…..I do need a yellow bag….thankfully I have a week until payday to mull it over! hahaha!

cecylia June 19, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Ahh yellow is next on my list too :D Great minds think alike Mica!!

Camla June 18, 2012 at 11:09 pm
