Vinca Giveaway *giveaway closed*

Vinca Giveaway *giveaway closed*

Today's Giveaway is for a Lips Leather Wallet from Vinca! (ARV $50) And our winner was: beth!

How cute is that wallet? Definitely a wallet with pizazz and personality! Here's some more info on it:
"Red Lips on a black background show just a hint of bright white teeth. Pairs perfectly with the Eyes Clutch. 4”lengthX3”height "


I was so excited when I found Vinca. Vinca is a fabulous company featuring very hip and modern leather accessories. From necklaces, to wallets, to shoes, they have a bunch of fun and funky items for you to choose from! I got to review their Vinca Signature Wallet in white with a black flower and I can't tell you how much I am loving this wallet. Let me give you a little background on what I had before. Awhile back I just kept my cards in my purse, when I was carrying around a diaper clutch all the time, I just put my cards in a small card-sized plastic bag so they would all stay together. That was last summer. I have been using that plastic bag ever since. My husband was embarassed, people thought it was hilarious when they would see it, but the worst ever was when I had to report that it had gotten lost to the police. The police officer laughed when I had to explain that it wasn't really a wallet, but more a plastic bag. So I was reporting a lost plastic bag, lol.

Lucky for me, I don't get embarassed really easy, I just knew that it was time to move on. Then in comes Vinca, providing me with an absolutely gorgeous wallet to replace my wore out plastic bag! It was a miracle! ;) I am so impressed with the quality of this wallet and can't believe that it's handmade. The quality is amazing, I know that this wallet is going to hold up a lot longer than any wallet I would have gotten from Wal Mart (and a whole bunch longer than my oh-so-chic plastic bag!). And the design is so modern and fun, I love showing this wallet off to anyone and everyone. Which is a nice change from trying to hide my plastic bag to avoid being made fun of. I gladly will recommend Vinca to you all. Their products are high quality, modern, fun, and very stylin'!

Now for the interview:

1. How/Why was Vinca started?

I started Vinca in 2006 during college as an attempt to expand my portfolio.

2. What is your current favorite item that you sell?

The icarus necklace or the fish necklace.

3. What inspires you?

Sealife, creatures with wings, dreams, italian vogue.

4. Which product is the most difficult to make?

The fish necklace has a lot of jump rings and required a bit extra attention to put all the pieces together.

5. What is your favorite part about running Vinca?

I get to do a little bit of everything. Administrative tasks, design, production management, customer service, store scouting, marketing, etc.

6. What made you decide to work with leather instead of another medium?

My parents own Bear Feet - I always played around with the scraps and the machinery and suppliers are readily available.

I like it for its size, its compact. The
colour is a great match to anything else.
The lips are red, for HOT and this gives
the wallet its orginality, and uniqueness.
