{Giveaway} A festive bag by Betty Audish

Betty Audish is giving away two of her “quintessential holiday” handbags–a bronze, leather clutch and a gold evening bag with a bow. Enter to win by answering in the comments below: Are you the kinda gal who thinks wearing bows is a go–or a “no?”

In 2001, fashion buyer Betty Audish’s mother passed away. The event made Betty realize just how precious life is, and she decided she couldn’t waste any more time before tackling her lifelong dream–designing her own handbag line. That year, Betty Audish handbags was born.

The first bags in her collection were luncheon-style, in honor of her mother. “My mom was very classic and carried small luncheon bags like the ones in Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” says Betty. “She always had trouble finding them, which made me realize there was a real whole in the market.”

Since then, Betty’s line has expanded to bags of all styles–day bags, totes, evening bags and clutches. In 2006 she introduced bags made with exotic skins–now her bestsellers. “Python is the new black,” says Betty, who manufactures bags in 19 colors of python and 13 colors of crocodile.

Betty’s warehouse and company headquarters is in Pearland, Texas, but her bags are sold in high-end specialty stores across the country. Betty’s bags were recently feature in Houston magazine and chosen as the “Item of the Day” in  Accessories Magazine who called them “timeless pull-it-out-in-10-years-and-it’s-still-as-amazing bags.”

To find a retailer of Betty Audish bags in your area or order one of the bags featured above (ships nationwide) call: 281-300-3202.


Enter to win one of two leather bags by

    Hi There!
    I had a love affair with bows when I was little. I remember my mom buying me a package of those plastic bow barretts in different colors – six colors! Thought I was big stuff. Iv’e had patent leather shoes with bows, headbands and a favorite pair of earrings in a flurry of rhinestones. There is something sweet and girlie about bows and we can wear them at any age. Viva la bow!

    Why say No to the Bow?? I remember when I was little and my Mom dressed me up to go somewhere special, as she would say, she had an assortment of bow’s, little ones for my hair, and bows for my coats or an added touch for the dresses she made for me, so for the Bow’s for me they are memories of special places and times with my Mom, I miss her alot and what better way to remember her than to have a bow and feel like she dressed me up all over again.

    Admittedly I’m a little of both – sometimes I feel like a bow, sometimes I don’t!

    But it definitely depends on where the bows are! I think at a certain age there can be no big bows at the waist (especially if you no longer have much of a waist!)

    But, the bow bag for instance would work for anyone, at any age!

    So, it really depends!

  119. DLori27 says:

    It’s very difficult for me to answer this question because I view each bag individually. The bag has to have something special about it, something that calls to me that says I can’t live without it before I purchase it. Generally, I attribute bows for the holiday season but bows on handbags simply give women more choices in choosing a pocketbook. Bows on handbags are simply an accessory just as a gorgeous silk scarf tied in a bow on the leather strap of a beautiful handbag has become a very coveted, gorgeous look. Who would have thought that this combination would be as beautiful and popular as it has? Looking at both bags, one with a bow and the other without, they are both equally gorgeous and because of their overall look, both bags can be worn all year round with any outfit.Here, I love the bag with the bow because it doesn’t overpower the bag, making it look gaudy, the size of the bow is perfect for the size of the bag and the color of the bag is simple yet versatile so the bow can be appreciated for it’s beauty without any distractions from other accessories or colors on the bag.

    Happy Holidays To All

    If it is the “right” size & in the “right” place… I too agree,

    I prefer the simpler more classic lines without the bows. Quality handbags last many years and as styles change and bows on bags come and go, I know that the classics I own will always be appropriate. Frankly, I think I am too old at 61 to follow most of the trends. People at our age should have figured out their style years ago and now can stick with it. That is one less things to worry about!

    Wearing bows is a go – I think some of the current boot styles sporting bows are classy looking – note I said SOME – others that overdo it with very large prominent bows lean more toward the comical.

    As a young girl, I wore bows all the time – with a side part, a little velveteen one attached to a bobby pin (that my mother made for me) to hold my hair out of my face, or those synthetic yarn ties, around each of my pigtails! In high school, it was jeans and t-shirts….so it was a “no-bow” period. At my wedding, in my late 20s, I had bows on my puffed sleeves, made of ivory silk ribbons, and my bridesmaids had small bows on the back of their iridescent emerald green dresses…not the tacky large ones….my youngest sister actually shortened her dress and wore it for New Year’s Eve the following year…then I had two daughters…they were bald at birth…and no, I did NOT scotch tape bows to their heads….instead I used those little baby headbands that look like an old bridal garter! On a big job interview, I wore a navy blue suit, with a white blouse, with an attached scarf bow in the front, and when my best friend got married at “Tavern on the Green” I wore a “tuxedo dress” with a black bow tie! After seeing a cunning diamond bow-tie necklace on Charlotte, a character on “Sex and the City” I found a knock-off CZ version…and thought I was a really trendy divorcee! Nowadays, I tie a bow on my espadrilles in the summer, and have some clip-on rhinestone bows to jazz up my plain pumps….so, as for the question: “Bows – a Go or No?” I would say that bows GO on forever in a woman’s life!

    Wearing bows in the right setting and on the right accessories is a dramatic GO! I love them on bags, ankle boots and belts but if you want to wear them in your hair and be like “Sally” in Dick Van Dykes’ sitcom, then the answer is NO! Bows should bring about class and elegance! The curves and grace of bowship is a GO!

    My grandaughter and I think bows are a go. She listened carefully to me when I said the doctor had delivered her. Her next question was what did the box look like and did it have a pretty bow? At her tender age, she assumed the doctor delivered her to us in a box!

    Yes, Cora the box was a beautiful pink that had a snazzy purple and pink box with lots of personality. The box was such a beautiful gift it took our breath away. When we removed the bow and we lifed the lid, a little blue eyed girl with red hair smiled at us.

    This is a true story and Cora never gets tired of hearing it.

    If you are not sure about bows, just look to Valentino – one of the most talented designers in the last 100 years. He is famous for his signature bows. Like most things though, it all comes down to moderation. The size, color and placement all depend upon the garment and the person wearing it – including accessories. Properly chosen they can make an unforgettable statement.

    Bows? I think everyone can wear bows – it’s all a question of how big and where. I do draw the line at the big ‘butt bows’ from those way over the top dresses form the 80s, but a clever little bow or even a bow-shaped piece of jewelry attached to a headband is great. And an obi belt with the bow in the front is great too. But I also think you have to match the bow size to your height so that the bow is a fillip.
