birthday bash, day four: hayden-harnett

{Entries now closed, but thanks for looking!}

Are you just swooning over the collection of goodies we’ve had this week for our big Birthday Bash? I’ve considered, more than once, rigging the whole thing and running off to Mexico with this haul. But then I remember that the point was to thank you all for being here, and going all klepto on you didn’t really seem to convey that message.

Today’s fabulous giveaway comes from a longtime love of mine: Hayden-Harnett. They make the most sumptuous leather goods, but they’re particularly fabulous at designing pieces that manage to be both on-trend and incredibly functional. Their Ibiza tote, for example, is so versatile, it’s practically an urban legend. But that felt far too practical for a Birthday Bash, so when designer Toni Hacker sweetly offered me my choice of goodies to give away to you to celebrate, I went with the piece I’m most coveting from their site right now:

Oh, I love it so! I’m a wallet snob in the worst way, so when I tell you this Clutch Wallet is one of the best I’ve seen in ages, you know that’s no small praise. I’m a big fan of a big wallet, as I have more credit cards than is at all reasonable. This one has twelve card slots, two zipper compartments, four open compartments, a pen loop…and that yummy graphic print interior. And it’s all robed in Hayden-Harnett’s signature soft-as-silk leather in eternally chic navy blue. It’s lovely enough to toss into your bag or to carry solo for a quick errand or an evening out. It retails for $178, but – as with all of the goodies this week – one of you gets to take it home for free!


You can enter up to three times today, and each of those three entries qualifies you to win any of the five prizes announced all this week, not just today’s prize. Keep that up all week, and you could still score 6 entries this week! How to do it? Simple:

Entry 1. Comment on the post. Easy peasy.

Entry 2. Facebook: “Like” Shopping’s My Cardio (if you haven’t already), and repost the contest on Facebook, using those brand new, handy-dandy little buttons at the bottom of the post. Use your imagination, but something like this would work well:

I just entered to win the perfect leather clutch from @Hayden-Harnett in @Shopping’s My Cardio Birthday Bash!

…then come back and leave a second comment telling me you did so.

Entry 3. Twitter: “Follow” @ShoppingsCardio, and tweet about the contest using those same fancy buttons. Just as a suggestion:

I just entered to win this beautiful wallet from @hayden_harnett in @shoppingscardio’s Birthday Bash!

…then come back and leave a third comment letting me know you got that done.

For the rest of the rules and details, head over here.

Good luck!

    I had a great wallet for years and just replaced it and I think I don’t like the replacement… this could fix this problem for me. 🙂

    OMG this is gorgeous…I’ve been looking for a new wallet and this would be perfect!!

    this is a great wallet. I’m constantly just putting my credit card in my pocket to avoid carrying my whole purse. This wallet would remedy that!

    Hayden-Harnett is really on a roll this season- I’m smitten with their entire Pirates collection, and think I need the Sparrow in my life…

    I’m not a wallet snob (am purse snob :D) but this is lovely. Cleverly put together. Love it!
