Every time I go to New York Fashion Week, I panic. I love fashion. But I am not, by any means, a fashionista. For weeks, I agonize over outfits. I work myself into a tizzy matching the right dress with the right shoe…the right belt with the right blouse. How does a mere mortal bring her A-game to an event attended by A-listers? A haute handbag – that’s how.

This go ‘round, my secret style weapon was Junior Drake’s Aurora Satchel. This pretty and practical bag is perfectly compatible with my gal-on-the-go lifestyle, with its roomy interior, plethora of pockets, double handles and longer detachable strap. The Aurora Satchel is so spacious that if you tend to carry around your life in your purse, like I do, you can pile it all in – and have room to spare. Yet it never looks bulky. And the buttery, washed Italian leather and cross-stitch flourishes give this chic tote a worn-in, loved esthetic. The bag is available in six sumptuous shades.

As you can see from the pic (that’s me in the Chanel showroom…more on that later), I’m so on-trend carrying the violet version. Karl’s to the left of me. Aurora’s to the right. Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

Where was I going with that? Nevermind. Moving on…

I am so obsessed with Junior Drake right now that I can’t keep this love affair to myself. So I’m spoiling y’all pretty. This giveaway isn’t junior. Oh hell naw. This one is majah!

One fortunate female will win Junior Drake’s Nicola Tote. Made of soft, supple leather, the Nicola flapped handbag will up your style ante with its feminine, Southwestern-inspired look. A multitude of exterior and interior pockets help keep you well-organized. And Nicola’s silk lining features retro photos of the founder’s actress mother – whose stage name was (you guessed it) Junior Drake.

The Nicola Tote retails for $528. But this week, we’re slashing prices – and you can get one of your very own for the low, low price of $0. That’s right. No money down, and no interest until neva! But you have to enter.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Junior Drake Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, September 28th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, September 29th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.
