Giveaway & Review: Gabbygale Cross Strap Hobo bag! (CLOSED!)

As much as I love clothes and shoes - I've always been a purse girl. And I'm very particular with my hand bags - I like basic shapes with good closures, and a strap that is long enough to put over my shoulder. A timeless bag never goes out of style!

Needless to I was very excited when Gabbygale Bags sent me their gorgeous Cross Strap Hobo Bag in black to review!

This bag is beautiful - it's made of a high quality leather like material and the cross straps are croc-like! The contrast of the two materials is striking - and kind of edgy! ;) This bag is great for my everyday shopping - it's big enough for my coupon organizers, planner, wallet etc - but not too big that I overload it and weigh myself down. The main pouch zippers shut and inside there are lots of pockets (great for lip gloss, gum, and newly found coupons!) And it retails at $26.99 - how's that for fabulous and frugal?!

All Gabbygale bags are under $35 and shipping is free with a $50 purchase (Would be a nice excuse to get yourself a bag and put away one for a friend's birthday or for Christmas! ;) ) They also sell tote bags, diaper bags, laptop bags and cosmetic bags!

Gabbygale Bags is giving away another Cross Strap Hobo bag to one Lucky Frugal & Fabulous reader!

I love the pleated fashion evening bag in black because it's stylish and sleek and has what looks to be a very comfortalbe yet not bulky shoulder strap. I can see this working for so many of the special occasions I attend.
