A Look At Multi-Sac Handbags & A Giveaway

Giveaway with Multi-Sac Handbags

Giveaway with Multi-Sac Handbags

So if you caught my blog post from a couple of weeks ago featuring the Joe Browns Stunning Maxi Dress from Simply Be, then you saw that I styled the dress a couple of different ways. In one of those looks I showed off my purse from Multi-Sac.

After sharing those pictures on my Instagram feed Multi-Sac contacted me and asked if they could send me some things to share with all of my readers. Not only that, but as you might have gathered from the title, I’m not just showing you the purses. That’s right, one lucky reader will win a handbag from Multi-Sac.

But before we get to the actual giveaway I want to talk a little bit about why I like Multi-Sac handbags as well as how to choose the best one for you.

I got my first Multi-Sac a little over a year and a half ago. The first one I bought was the Multi Flare Crossbody Bag in Cognac. I initially chose this bag because I was looking for a bag to use on a trip I was going on. I wanted something that was both functional but that also still looked stylish. When I cam across the Multi-Sac handbags I was instantly drawn in by the way it looked, but I also loved how many compartments this bag had. I really like a crossbody style when traveling as well. I think it gives you the ability to really control access to your belongings if you wear them correctly. And with the Multi Flare Crossbody Bag it is also big enough to hold a Ipad or whatever tablet you use. For me this is a big selling point in a bag, especially for one I want for air travel. I found myself using the bag not only for when I traveled but for a lot of my everyday life. I ended up using my first bag so much it started to fall apart.  The bag I showed in my recent post is my second one, and it was bought just before vacation.

There are some things to consider, other than just what aesthetics you like, when it comes to choosing which Multi-Sac Handbag is right for you. Do you want it strictly for travel/to use when going to work/going to festivals? What will you be using it for? How much do you need to carry with you? How heavy are the items you are going to be carrying with you? Do you need to be able to carry your tablet in it?

Multi-Sac Handbags come in several styles, fabric selection, sizes, and handle styles that will all play a part in your selection. Anything large enough to carry a tablet will be marked on their website in the description of each handbag. They are available in styles from mini bags to backpacks.

Look at handle style and placement for how much weight each handbag can carry. Multi-Sac makes handbags with a variety of strap styles. The two bags I have purchase from them for myself are at the opposite ends of the spectrum. Starting with bags like the Multi Flare Handbag, they have one thin strap sewn on the interior lining, they will have a lighter weight limit. Styles go all the way up to bags like the Reflex Tote, where they have two very thick handle straps sewn onto the exterior material. This will make it capable of carrying a much heavier weight. But Multi-Sac offers handbags in all sorts of strap types that are in between these two. At the end of the day no matter which handbag you pick from Multi-Sac, I am sure you will love it as much as I do mine.

And now I am sure you all anxious to hear about the bag that is actually being given away. One person will win this brand new three tone Multi Flare Handbag. In fact it is so new it’s not even out in stores yet, at least this color combo isn’t. If I understood the note attached correctly it is due out sometime next month. And I believe this color combo is  Warm Taupe, Chino, and Sand.

So if you win this bag, you will be one of the first people to have it. You can visit Multi-Sac’s website for the specs on the Multi Flare Handbag, you just won’t see this exact color since it isn’t available yet.

A Few Notes About Entering The Giveaway:

Plus Size OOTD: How Do You BOHO?

So the wonderful people over at Simply Be contacted me and asked if I would like to help show some of their clothes to my readers, and I gladly said yes. The great thing about the clothing at Simply Be is that they have something for every style. Whether you go for the most casual of look or you want something more fashion forward Simply Be has it.

They told me to pick something myself from several different categories. Dresses was one of the categories, and since I am a dress girl I concentrated my search there. I had a hard time making a decision because they have so many styles I love. I ultimately wanted to make sure I showed something that a little different from anything I had shown previously, and that they still had fully in stock all sizes. This ultimately led me to this Joe Browns Stunning Maxi Dress .

For reference on sizing, my measurements are bust 49″ waist 42″ hips 54″. I typically wear a size 20 or 2X in most plus size brands. I have made almost all of the pictures clickable in this post so you can see details of the dress or fit more close up.

Joe Browns Plus Size Maxi Dress available at Simply Be

This dress is available in US sizes 8 to 28. I had a hard time deciding on a size because I had heard that this brand runs small. However, this is my usual size 20 that I am showing here, and this is what I thought:

The fit was great, especially in the waist and hips. And if you are on the bustier side, this might be a great dress option for you. I had plenty of extra room there both on the sides and with the adjustable straps. The length was great for me at 5’8″. I think the length is going to work best for anyone 5’6″ to 5’10” (this is just my opinion and may differ based on where you like for your dress to hit), however if you are shorter I really don’t see anything that would prevent you from having this one hemmed.

This does have an interior lining that hits just above the knee on me. There isn’t really any stretch to the fabric, so make sure that you order the size that you need, and not something your counting on stretching to fit. The straps are wide, yes wide enough to wear with a bra.

The pictures do not do this one justice, it is even prettier in person. I love the BOHO style and all the little unique details this dress has. There is a tasseled tie cord at the bust. And embroidery abounds. You have an embroidered bib and two stripes that run parallel down the front of the dress. And in the embroidery there are tiny yellow gold sequins dispersed throughout.

I think one of the great things about the BOHO style, especially with more minimalistic looks like this, you can really accessorize in a lot of different ways. While you might think of boho as being very plain, at the heart of it the boho lifestyle is all about being a free spirit. So why shouldn’t you be free to do what you want and wear what you want with a look like this. So I actually decided to style this dress a couple of different ways.

Joe Brown Stunning Maxi Dress paired with Bear Claws and a Multi-Sac

I kept the same minimalistic makeup for both looks. I also have curls in my hair for both looks, but with this one I kept my hair like I normally wear it with no accoutrement. I paired it with the BareTraps Jeeny sandals, the Reflex Tote from Multi-Sac in the color Hazel, and Flip-up Round Lens Metal Frame Sunglasses. Check out each of the accessories closer up below.

With the second look I still wanted to stay kind of simple, because that is more true to who I am and what I like 80% of the time when it comes to accessories, but I also wanted to do something that read as being a little more glam to me.

For this look I stuck with all black and gold accessories. I really wanted to play up the accents of gold from the sequins on the dress. I changed up my hair just a tad. And the only thing I changed about my makeup was the color of lip gloss I had on.

Joe Brown Dress from Simply Be Styled with Urban Expression, Avenue Sandals, and other accessories

For my accessories I added a gold chain headband that came from a three-piece set I got on Amazon just recently. It’s really thin, and you can just barely see it in the picture. But in person it looked great with the dress and gave it a slight 70’s flare. I have on a lace butterfly choker that I have had for a while. The purse is a fold over crossbody bag from Urban Expressions. The shoes are the Sybil sandal from the Avenue’s Cloud Walker line. Check out the close-ups below.

I really think this is a dress that you will not regret adding to your wardrobe. There are so many more ways you could style this dress. And what a great dress for festival wear. And don’t forget to check out all the other great clothes from the Joe Browns line at Simply Be, as well as all the other wonderful brands of dresses. They really do have something for everyone.

Tell me in the comments below how you BOHO. How would you style this dress? Do you prefer a more minimalistic boho, boho glam, boho chic, etc..?
