Pack Your Bags ~ New York Awaits! (Plus Win a Wrap-Around-Clutch)

July 23, 2012

Buzzing off to the Big Apple anytime soon?  With cooling temps and lots of locals still out in the Hampton’s and Cape Cod, August is one of the best month’s in the NYC.  Major inspiration for our bestselling colorway – Empire Slate, Manhattan is one of our favorite places in the world.

One extra special reason to visit soon is Shakespeare in the Park’s production of “Into the Woods starring Amy Adams (shown below in Enchanted), Glenn Close, and Jack Broderick.  The production was set to open today, however stormy weather has pushed this back to tomorrow.  The production runs through August 25th and promises to be a delight.  Tickets are free via the virtual ticketing or by standing in line day of show at the Delacorte Theatre.

Another New York delight: Friday Nights at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The museum is open till 8:45 (it’s also open Saturday evening, but Friday seems to capture more locals rather than tourists).   Enjoy classical music, champagne and snacks on the Great Hall Balcony Bar, (which overlooks the Great Hall).  Stroll through your favorite galleries taking in the endless masterpieces and dip into the many docent tours to enrich the experience.  Admission is suggested at $25, but Bank of America customers get in free.

Be sure to take a trip up the Empire State Building – even if you’re not great with heights, this is a really romantic view with lots to see.  Gorgeous at night, fascinating by day. Prices range from $25 to $86 depending on levels and elevator speeds.

And of course, New York is about fashion.  Our beautiful Empire Slate colorway sprang right from the patterns of the buildings themselves.

Want a little Empire Slate to take with you on your travels?  We’re giving away a Wrap-Around-Clutch in the colorway this week (a $43 value)!  Just comment below and then check back on Friday July 27th to see if you’ve won – we’ll post the winner right here!  Winner chosen at random.

My husband and I lived in New Jersey about 5 years ago. Any chance we got we took a train to NYC. We absolutely loved being in the city. Our favorite place was right down in Times Square. The Cinda B clutch would have been an awesome addition to my wardrobe had I discovered you 5 years ago. Maybe we will have to make a special trip to New York, hopefully with this new clutch.

Love this color and style! This small clutch would fit perfect inside my Cinda B diaper bag that I always have with me. Would love to WIN!

Amanda July 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

With a new baby in tow, I no longer have an extra hand for my purse…especially since we travel quite often. The clutch would be a perfect item to throw into her diaper bag and not lose my keys and wallet!

Headed to New York this weekend for a wedding! Love seeing NYC’s wonderful architecture come through in the pattern and stitching. Couldn’t be a more accurate reflection of the Empire State! Perfect :o )

I lived in NYC for 20 years and the Empire Slate colorway reminds me of all the wonderful things that I love about the place- graceful strength, confident energy, understated sophistication, and always ready. I’ve used CindaB bags for six years now. I get compliments and field inquiries whenever I am using my bags. As a designer, I have gone through my share of bags and never had a bag that was so versatile and made me feel so good- graceful strength, confident energy, understated sophistication, and always ready.

Cinda Burgert July 25, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I just love the Empire Slate; and although I have never been to New York it
is definitely on my bucket list to go there. I just love this new color and
I like showing off the Cinda B. collection. People are always asking about my purse or
overnighter. I would love to have them all.

My sister travels quite a bit, but she’s never been to New York…yet. This beautiful clutch would be a really nice belated birthday gift for her.

Kathy July 26, 2012 at 7:02 am
