  1. I’m a facebook fan of both Stained Couture and Corrente Handbags!

    I would really LOVE to win this handbag! Not only is it just absolutely beautiful but it looks functional, too–big enough to carry just about everything I could possibly need!

    I’m used to carrying around a big diaper bag so a pretty handbag would be a refreshing change for this mommy!

    Thanks a bunch for this amazing giveaway!

  2. Hi!

    im a fan facebook and a follower.

    i would love to win it because its colour is one of my favourites and i can easily add some creativity to the outfit with it.

    thank you.


  3. Please enter me! I want to win because I need a new bag, and Im a facebook follower (Evelyn D)

  4. Fan on facebook-Autum Hofeling
    Follow through GFC via twitter-AutumH

    I would love to win this purse because my regular purse just isn’t cutting it anymore (plus it’s not as fashionable and cute as this one)
    Also I love,love,love the bright green color.

  5. Follow Corrente Handbags on twitter-AutumH but for the life of me I can not find them on facebook…..

  6. Hiya! I just became a Facebook “liker” of Stained Couture & Corrente Handbags! I’m so glad I’ve found you!

    This Corrente purse is just so pretty! It looks like the perfect purse for the summer and, if I’m the lucky winner, I think everyone would be green with envy! πŸ™‚

    I’d REALLY like to win a new purse so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for this one! Thanks for the chance!

  7. Oooohhh! I just love this handbag!

    I like the green and the purple color (from the pictures above) and I would love to own this bag in either color! Or, both!!! πŸ™‚

  8. Before I get my day started, I had to come take a look at the beautiful Corrente “Array” handbag!

    This is exciting! Fingers are still crossed tight!

  9. I’m a facebook fan!

    I would love to win this bag because I’m a new mom and desperately need something stylish with which to haul sippy cups. =)

  10. I became a facebook fan!
    I would love to have this bag, it has a perfect size for me because I go to college and do a lot of activities but don’t want to carry something huge. Besides, it’ll be a great touch of colour of any outfit.

  11. I think this handbag would even be big enough to fit a notepad, a book, keys, cell phone, wallet, a small makeup pouch …

    Oh, the possibilities are endless!

  12. I just noticed that the description mentions an adjustable strap too!

    This would be ideal for my slightly pudgy arms! πŸ™‚

    A lot of times, those short strap handbags that are meant to go over the shoulder are a little snug for me so I end up simply carrying the straps in my hand πŸ™ … but with an adjustable strap, all of these problems would disappear!

  13. I have some free time and could resist the tentation of stopping by again, and I became a corrente’s facebook fan too.

  14. So, I went shopping today… and, I almost bought a new purse today! But, at the last minute, I opted to wait till this contest was over…just in case I win!! This handbag is just so gorgeous…I so desperately would like to own it!!

  15. Oh, and I did I tell you just how much I love the Stained Couture blog?! Well, it’s now my go-to site! Hey…just thought I’d butter you up a teensy bit! πŸ™‚

  16. I was just reading your Twitter timeline…we had a power outage here in St. Louis just a couple of days ago, too.

    No power = no fun!

    Gorgeous Corrente Handbags = loads of fun!!

  17. One last sweet entry for the night! Taking my 3 yr. old daughter and nephews to the St. Louis Science Center tomorrow morning…must wake up early! Oh wait, waking up at the crack of dawn is no different from any other day!

    Will be dreaming of the Array Handbag! Thanks again for such a lovely contest!

  18. So little time left until the contest is closed! I’m excited, I really want to win this beautiful, bright bag! I could totally see myself carrying it everywhere =)

  19. Somebody poke me! Is this a dream? Is Stained Couture really giving away such a lovely Corrente Handbag?!!

    I. Think. So.


  20. Kisses and hugs go out to Stained Couture and Corrente Handbags today for offering such a mouthwatering giveaway!


  21. One of my nephews looks at me with confusion this morning and asks me: “Why do girls have purses?”

    As if he were thinking “eeewwww, girls!”

    Just thought I’d share!


  22. Do you know what else I like about this handbag? Well, I’ll tell you right now…

    I almost bought a handbag the other day (think I mentioned this earlier). It was okay…nice. But, there were probably about 30 just like it in the same store…the same bag, different company/designer, varying colors, etc…

    How boring!!

    The Array handbag, however, isn’t quite like any I’ve seen before… It’s simply but edgy…and, the detail is unique, clean, and really interesting to look at.

    It’s just so polished-looking in a classic sort of way. πŸ™‚

  23. Oh, and did I mention that you would make me the happiest girl ever if I could have one of my very own??!! (cough, wink, nudge, nudge…)

  24. There’s 149 days left until the end of the year…but, only 2 days left to enter this contest!!!!

  25. If I happen to be the lucky winner of Corrente’s Array Handbag, this will be my promise…

  26. Hehe! Can you tell I’ve got weddings on the brain? This is because I’m getting married in October…for the first (and, hopefully only) time!

  27. The Array would be really fun to take with me on my honeymoon! I’m actually taking a semester off from school just so I can settle in, enjoy a week-long honeymoon, and just get used to married life in general!

  28. The detail on the straps, the color, and the style – it’s a PERFECT every day bag and it would match with anything!!!

  29. Yaaaa! Stained Couture and Corrente rocks! Happiness is what I would feel if I won this handbag!

  30. Gosh, I wish I could come up with a good bribe to increase my chances of winning…but, alas, I don’t think it’s possible to bribe! Darn it!

  31. Alrighty…it’s been a couple of minutes since I last entered…gosh, I’m slacking! Please enter me again!

  32. Coco Chanel once said that “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” I completely agree and I think The Array Handbag could help me achieve both!!

  33. Coco Chanel also said: “As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!”

    I agree with that one, too!

  34. I think that I would be the center of attention if I walked into a room with this handbag on my shoulder!

    Okay, well…maybe the bag would be the center of attention but I can still pretend!

  35. Soooo…if you weren’t convinced before that I’ve fallen head over heels for this handbag…are you convinced now?!!

  36. After seeing The Array, my life just wouldn’t have the same meaning…if I couldn’t have it! πŸ™‚ hehehe!

  37. Did I tell you I’m about to go bake cookies for my daughter?

    Mmmm…everybody likes cookies…

    Perhaps, you could come over to St. Louis and eat some of my homemade cookies with us? Oh, and please feel free to bring The Array handbag with you!!

    See you soon!

  38. My sister is also wanting to enter. I just hope that if she wins at least let me use it once in a while, I’m the one who introduced her here!

  39. And I can see myself wearing any of them in summer but I’d take of it and wouldn’t take it to the beach. Hate to find the inside full of sand.

  40. I could use it for College and then go to a party with my friends and I’d look perfect with it

  41. I’ve never won anything, and If this Corrente handbag were my first price I couldn’t be more happy

  42. Those pleats make it different and unique what’s not a minor detail nowadays when everyone seems to go around with the same bag.

  43. Hey, I just finished up my university classes for the summer on Monday. I just checked online and they posted grades! All A’s…which I’m really happy about because taking a full load over the summer just almost killed me! Plus, I didn’t like being away from my daughter for so many, many hours everyday.

    If I won the Corrente Handbag, it would be the sweetest present ever!

  44. And, now that my classes are over and I’m making up for lost time with my little girl, I’d be the most fashionable mom at the playground with The Array by my side!

  45. But, don’t worry…I’d be sure to wrap em’ up tight…so spills or leaks on The Array allowed!

  46. I like the fact that this purse would be so versatile! I think you could wear it with jeans and a t-shirt or a skirt and heels and still look stylin’ no matter the outfit!

  47. Some days I like my comfy jeans…and, some days I like to get a little dressed up. Either way, I could take The Array with me everywhere I go!

  48. Now that my little girl is going through her purse phase (just a girlie-girl phase in general), we would look so cute together…mommy’s new purse and one of her adorable little pink purses!

  49. If I won, I’d be so overcome with joy…I might now know what to do with myself! I’d have to kiss someone!

  50. I love that Stained Couture is hosting this awesome giveaway! But, it looks like there’s some fierce competition out there! I knew I wasn’t the only one who wanted this gorgeous handbag!

  51. If I am the lucky winner, I’ll need someone to pinch me (a couple times)! I’ve never won anything like this but I’m gonna keep on trying till I do! WooHoo!!

  52. What’s the weather like where everyone else is from?

    I’m over here in St. Louis and it’s been so ridiculously HOT and HUMID…I don’t even want to go outside! I just want to lounge all day…but can’t!!

    However, if I won The Array, I’m convinced that it would keep me soooo cool all summer long…:)

  53. Speaking of cookies…I’ve eaten way too many today. Ummm…I’m eating one right now… uh oh…

  54. Sure, we are competing for the same thing…but, I can see that we both have great style in common!!

  55. this is so exciting, thank you for this giveaway. It’s a beautiful bag and you can see the quality of it it’s really good.

  56. I just put my daughter to bed (fussy tonight)…now, I think I’ll enter once more and watch a Netflix movie on my computer for the very first time! Just signed up for Netflix…I know, I must be the last person in the world!! πŸ™‚

  57. It’s such a big prize, it’s great that a blog gives its readers a wonderful giveaway. I’ll be around more from now on.
    Enter me again, please.
    Thank you!

  58. Or, a rabbit! That would be equally entertaining…but, I think I’d rather win this super sweet handbag!

  59. I’m ashamed to say that between my daughter, my fiance, and myself…we ate all 25 cookies that I baked tonight!

  60. I really like green, it is a different colour and there are not many bags like this. Enter me please,
    thank you!

  61. Of course, most of the credit goes to my fiance…he’s been known to eat an entire pack of Oreo’s in one sitting!

  62. But, if I keep eating cookies like this and I actually win The Array handbag, it might not fit me quite right!

    Thank goodness for that adjustable strap!

  63. Hehe…I sound like my three yr. old! Gimme, Gimme, Gimme…More, More, More…I want this, I want that! πŸ˜€

  64. There’s something about it that sets it apart from all the other “cookie cutter” handbags out there!

  65. Second, I’m digging the adjustable strap (I’ve mentioned my pudgy arms already…so I won’t repeat myself)!

  66. In fact, I’ve already spent more time lusting over The Array than I have with my future husband… 8)

  67. I hope at least some of my comments are making you giggle a bit! I’ve got to at least try to keep this fun, right?!!

  68. You’ve got to know that I’d be the happiest girls in St. Louis if I won this super awesome giveaway!

  69. …and sassy doesn’t even begin to describe how I would feel if I was the lucky winner of this handbag!

  70. I’m watching a movie on Netflix right now! But, what do you know…I’m hooked on Stained Couture and I’m back for more!!

  71. So, now you can see my pudgy little arms…see what I mean? The adjustable strap on this handbag is perfect for me!

  72. Oh, how I would love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, to win this marvelous handbag!

  73. Well, at least I’ll have super sweet dreams if I do fall asleep…that is, before my daughter wakes me up in the morning!

  74. I couldn’t hardly sleep at all…I just tossed and turned thinking about how much I would love to win The Array!!

  75. Ooooohhh…thank you for all my entries! The thought of actually winning a handbag this gorgeous is absolutely exhilarating!

  76. I’m just longing to thrown her over my shoulder and take her with me everywhere I go…. πŸ™‚

  77. Okay, now that I’ve seen The Array this morning, I think I can successfully start my day now…
