Hammitt Handbag Giveaway

My love for handbags is undeniable since my closet is brimming with them, ranging from designer brands such as Foley + Corinna and Antoinette Lee Designs to Gida Bavari and Elliott Lucca. That's why I'm pleased announce that Stearns & Foster, the purveyors of luxury mattresses, has collaborated with Hammitt! I know that you're probably shaking your head, wanting to ask me what does handbags have to do with mattresses? Just keep reading!

Founded in 2008 by Stef Hammitt, Hammitt is an American designer handbag company that is based in Los Angeles that crafts essential everyday handbags that are chic, yet practical and timeless. They're also built to withstand years of abuse that average handbags aren't simply made to do. It didn't take long for them to attract a celebrity following, with some of the biggest names like Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Kelly Ripa carrying something from their line. These handbags has also made an appearance in TV shows, such as True Blood, Gossip Girl, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Scrubs, NCIS, and Mad Love.

Hammitt uses handcrafted, dyed-through hides that undergo the finest tanning process, passed down through generations from the European masters, creating a long lasting finish that improves with each wear. Skilled leather artisans curate every detail, from suede lining and polished rivets, to discreet cell-phone pockets and smart reversible straps. By applying old-world techniques and craftsmanship to a modern context, Hammitt transcends culture through versatility.


This brand perfectly embraces and captures the essence of the California lifestyle: carefree, style driven, and self-confident with no regional boundaries.

Traveling in Comfort and in Style

If you’re traveling to a different state to spend the holidays with your family, isn’t it nice to feel comfortable and be in style simultaneously? If you’d like to improve your travel style because you’re currently not satisfied with your existing style, why don’t you go ahead and take a page from the celebrity handbook. Hold your travel outfits to the same standard as your work outfits and look incredible. Whether you’re looking for glamorous sweats or going for the comfy and chic route with True Religion jeans, don’t worry because soon you’ll discover your own travel inspiration so that you can look incredible next time you travel.

A Striped Sweater and Boyfriend Jeans



Be calm and collected yet incredibly fashion forward by wearing a trendy striped sweater and boyfriend jeans. This outfit will keep you warm and you’ll still be on-trend. To add to this staple wear a pair of boots or flats, which are ideal if you’d like to easily slip your shoes off at security check point. Roll the bottom part of your jeans up to add even more style to your ensemble. For your hair you can wear it down or in a pony tail to go with this polished look.

Perfectly Monochrome



Sometimes it’s nice to blend in with the crowd at an airport and still look very polished and put together. Put together a monochrome outfit that’s chic and very comfortable. Denim jeans paired with a deep blue shirt will look effortlessly chic and if you’re in a rush to make it to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner you can simply add a black necklace or a pair of heels. A simple look can turn classy in just a matter of minutes if you add the right accessories to the ensemble.

A Simple Black Ensemble with a Pop of Color

If you like the idea of a monochrome outfit but you still crave a little bit of color, why not wear a black ensemble with a floral shirt underneath. That way you still can wear black separates but add just a touch of color. A bright blouse would also look great with a floppy hat, but you don’t want to wear a hat at the airport. Put it in your carry on and put it on after you arrive for a effortlessly chic appearance.

Dior and I



Film & TV distributor The Orchard has acquired all rights in the U.S. and Canada to director Frédéric Tcheng’s fashion documentary Dior and I, which premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival to outstanding praise. This marks the third fashion film for Tcheng, who previously co-wrote and co-directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and co-produced Valentino: The Last Emperor. The documentary captures the entire process behind Raf Simons debut couture collection in his new position as Creative Director of Christian Dior Couture.

"I am extremely excited to be working with the Orchard on bringing the film to its North American audience," said director Frédéric Tcheng. “They clearly have a passion for and understanding of the film that will translate to a successful roll-out.”

In 2012, legendary French fashion house, Christian Dior Couture, announced designer Raf Simons as its head Creative Director. Dior and I pays homage to the work of the talented Dior atelier and takes a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the makings of Simons’ debut haute couture collection and how it returned to the origins of the house of Dior.

The film takes an intimate, vérité-style glimpse at the inner workings of the Dior atelier, capturing the entire eight-week process up until the premiere of Simons’ collection. This includes the little-seen atelier workers – the heart and soul of the fashion industry – some of whom have sewed for Dior for decades and do so with an unbridled passion. Together, they form a support system for Simons and help to create his masterpiece collection, with every line they sketch and bead they sew.

A whirlwind of creativity, stress, determination and triumph, the movie boasts mass and niche appeal.

“Dior and I is a visually and emotionally stunning film about an oft unseen part of the process in the world of high fashion,” said The Orchard’s SVP of Film & TV, Paul Davidson. “Frédéric Tcheng has crafted a documentary that, much like the elegant creations in the world of Dior, deserves to be seen."

The film is slated for a 2015 theatrical release in the US and Canada. The deal was negotiated by Danielle DiGiacomo of The Orchard and Josh Braun of Submarine.
