RockPaperScissors City Clutch Review and Giveaway


Although I'm a transplant, I've got a lot of local pride for my now-hometown of Minneapolis. So when Mary Jo from RockPaperScissors dropped me a line about doing a review/giveaway of one of her canvas envelope clutches, I was just tickled.

Although Mary Jo stocks clutches featuring city names including London, Paris, and Rome, I requested a custom Minneapolis clutch.* As you can see, it turned out beautifully! Get a load of that gorgeous, curly M, why don't ya?


The clutch is fairly small and flat, ideal for keys, ID, and maybe some lipstick. The interior is lined with a slippery animal-print fabric that allows contents to move freely. And is super cute.


The exterior is a rough, tan canvas that that gives the piece a funky edge. Due to its size and design, I could see this clutch making a great wallet alternative, too.

I'm very excited to have another canvas envelope clutch to one lucky Already Pretty reader. And you can either select from the pre-made clutches, or request a custom one with YOUR city name!


Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Visit RockPaperScissors to check out the city clutches.
  2. RockPaperScissors on Twitter, like RockPaperScissors on Facebook. You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us which city you'd pick if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  4. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Thursday, December 22, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers.

Good luck!
