Designer Your Own Tote with Bloomingdales & Rebecca Minkoff!

Bloomingdale’s is holding a Tote-ally Green design contest! It’s all about creating and designing a fun, reusable tote to make everyone’s life a little more green. You can enter between April 7th, and April 25th, 2010. Users can vote on their favorite bags, and the grand prize winner will be selected based on the 50 favorites as voted by users.

  • Grand Prize Winner: $2,000 Bloomingdale’s shopping spree AND their bag will be produced by Rebecca Minkoff and sold exclusively at bloomingdales.com. (Winner is chosen by Rebecca Minkioff and a panel of fashion experts.)
  • Runner-Up: $1,000 Bloomingdale’s shopping spree — the tote with the most votes grabs this prize.
  • Daily Winner: $100 Bloomingdale’s shopping spree will be awarded once a day.

You can see my design above… THE MELLANATOR! aka Mellan on the bag, because I’m an obsessive dog owner like that :) He’s green… well, he’s sitting on a bunch of green, enjoying life, happy as can be… It’s probably one of my favorite photos of him EVER, so it would be totally rockin’ to see him on a bag.

I’d love to see yours, so link me to your entry in the comments!
