Glass Handbag Sponsor Spotlight Review

Oh, have I got a treat for you guys! I have one of Glass Handbag's bags to review and it is a doozy! I did not realize it would be so big until it came and I realized, wow, this thing could probably hold my laptop!
This one is called the Frankie Structured Crossbody Bag. Whew, that was a mouthful! But, look at what features this bag comes with:
  • Navy blue genuine leather
  • Leather and silver metal 13 inch drop shoulder strap
  • Flap-front closure
  • Two inside zip pockets
  • Two inside open multifunction / cell phone pockets
  • Five Protective metal feet to protect bottom leather
  • Glass Handbag custom logo silver jacquard lining
  • 12 1/2"W X 11"H X 5"D
  • Patented integrated light system
  • Light turns on when bag is opened and turns off when closed.
  • Comes with 2 AAA logo batteries
  • Custom designed acrylic logo (can be used as a keychain)
  • Care and use instructions for the lighted handbags
  • Imported

This is one serious looking handbag. And you read right on the features of this handbag. Well, actually all of their handbags light up when it's dark and you open them, and instantly lights come on so you can see what is inside your handbag with no problem.

I love the idea! Too bag I did not figure this one out, I could probably be sitting on easy street by now and not have to worry so much. But, I am glad that somebody came up with the idea, because it really does help to be able to see in your handbag, especially at night.

Looks like there are only 4 colors to choose from and that is snakeskin, my navy blue one, and 2 different kind of oranges. I would show you the other handbags but you aren't allowed to copy any of their pictures, so please go and check them out for yourself. They also have satchels, evening bags and shoulder bags. I think you won't have a problem finding one that suits you.

Since I can't show you what they look like (you will have to go to their site and look at the Evening Bags called Rave) here is a description I took off of their site so you can sorta tell what you are trying to win:
Glamorous Evening Clutches and Handbags. Beautiful handcrafted evening clutches with incredible style and detail. High quality hand made construction with the patented integrated lighting technology built in. Always see what's in your bag!   
A convenient place to put your cell phone and ID on a night out. Our metallic and leather clutches are unique and stylish featuring different colors and styles to match any look. Whether is be the silver, gold or many more we have a design that will compliment any outfit.   
And be sure to check out the designer leather and synthetic leather handbag designs! These designer handbags are offered in a range of colors including black leather handbags, red napa leather bags, metallic patent leather, ostrich embossed synthetic leather, and many other custom designs.
Here's a little bit about the founder of Glass Handbags:
Tamara Leuty functions as the CEO and inventor of the first functional lighted designer handbag. As the designer of Glass Handbag, she dreamed the original styles of each and every handbag, from hardware to leather to every detailing, including the custom charms and interior branded lining.   
The Glass Handbag name and branding were also inspired by her travels and possessions, created by Tamara for her luxury brand.

After visualizing about a fashionable handbag with a light system, Tamara overcame every obstacle to create, design, manufacture, and bring to market her dream. She did detailed research to figure how to make a prototype and ultimately a fully functional marketable product.  
Frustrated with her own handbag, never finding what she needed when she needed it. Tamara's photography has brought the handbags to life and given them a momentum of their own.  
Tamara started in the fashion world as a professional Stylist of Hair and Make-up for such large and iconic companies as Avon, JCPenney, Frito Lay, and Mary Kay Cosmetics in Dallas TX for their advertising and catalogs.

I been hearing about these glass handbags and couldnt figure out why they called them that. Wow they light up when opened and turn off when closed. Never heard any that did this !
I like that they have metal feed on the bottom to protect them too. Cool

This is beautiful. I love the one you reviewed here. I'll second that thought about wishing I could have invented this one. :)Thanks for the review.

I love that the handbag lights up. I could not figure why they were so popular. Thanks to your review I now understand, besides the great styling that is apparent, it is the extra features that make this line so outstanding.

I thought this sounded almost too good to be true (I spend way too much time fumbling around in a dark purse for things, so I'm very tempted), so it's great to see a review putting my fears to rest. This looks like a beautiful bag!
