#GiveAllTheThings: Monica Vesci Clutch.

UPDATE: This contest is now closed! Our winner:

I would use it to keep test strips from showing up everywhere such as the bathtub, the front porch and my favorite in my shoes.

* * * * *

What you can win: A "Hot Pink Heidi Camino Sans" clutch purse, with clever hidden trash container and compartments for all of your diabetes gear!



Made possible by: Monica Vesci (http://www.monicavesci.com/)

Why you want this: My love for Monica Vesci clutches is well documented:

"What I like about this bag: it's sneaky in that it doesn't look like a diabetes bag, it's clearly very well-made (it actually reminds me, in terms of design, construction, and quality, of a Coach bag), it has appropriately-sized pockets and loops, and the sharps container is pretty genius. While I personally would prefer the outer material to be a bit more sturdy/stiff (it softens up a tad with use), I suppose that's a good thing for when you need to cram a bunch of stuff in there. It's a very roomy bag that is even long enough to hold a Dexcom G4 sensor still in its packaging - impressive!"

Other notables:
  • Handheld Bag with Zipper, Interior Round Zip Pocket Includes Removable 50ml Sharps Container with Screw Lid
  • Interior Insulin Penholder Sleeve
  • Two Interior Slip Pockets for Meters, Test Strips, Lancets, Glucose Tabs, CGM or Other Supplies
  • Interior Zippered Pocket with Two Slots, One for Credit Card another for Small Supplies like Batteries, Lancets and Insulin Pen Needle Heads
  • Treated Cotton Canvas Exterior with Metallic Leather Trim
  • Embossed Signature on Natural Cowhide
  • 100% Polyester Wipe Clean Lining
  • Chevron Pattern Placement May Vary from Sample Shown
  • 11.75"L x 3.5"W x 6"H
  • Designed in Denmark | Manufactured in U.S.A.

Per Monica: "I would love for contestants to submit photos of their used test strip and/or needle graveyards at the bottom of their bags, pockets, on their desk after they empty out the contents of their bags, etc. I would love to see more real life photos showing why people want and need the Camino Clutch and how it can help solve their graveyard problem, so to speak."

  2. I'd use it for all things diabetes and keep it in my big purse most of the time, and carry it on its own when I didn't need to massive every day purse.

  3. I have wanted this for a long time!! I would use it on a daily basis to carry all of my Diabetes things so they were all together in one place instead of in different bags or compartments!

    ReplyDelete
  4. So cute! I would use this to organize my stuff in one place. I currently have a black meter bag, a vera bradley change purse for my dex and target make up case for all my supplies. It would make finding everything SO much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would use this clutch EVERY DAY! This is so cute! It is perfect to fit all of my diabetes needs and would fit great in my purse. It also is cute enough that I could carry it on it's own if I don't want to lug around my purse, just throw in my ID, phone and some money and I'm good to go!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd probably most often use it to corral all of my supplies within my briefcase bag for work, but with such a fun color, it would have to be allowed out on date nights as a fun clutch as well!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I HATE my current meter bag...it doesn't fit enough stuff! I have been swooning over these bags for months. I would use it all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  8. OMG, that clutch is a) practical and b) cute! Love it!!! And definitely want one of my own, right now I move my diabetes items from one handbag to another without something (super cute) to keep it all coordinated. I love that I could also take just that out if it's for an evening do!

    ReplyDelete
  9. So adorable!! That would be my constant companion everywhere I go!

    ReplyDelete
  10. This bag would organize all of my stuff inside my huge every day bag so I could find everything! On top of that...it is a super cute bag!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love these bags! Right now my purse is a huge mess and I just throw my meter and other supplies into the bag but I would love a stylish bag that would keep everything organized for me - and not scream 'medical' to boot.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have always wanted one of these!! I would take it on fun outings and possibly to school (I'm a first grade teacher). Since it's diabetes-friendly, I know that it would be on high rotation.

  13. It would be completely amazing to be an owner of such a multiple use clutch. Firstly it would provide a place to keep extra syringes, test stripe vial, extra lancets, finger picker (lancet device), Bayer contour meter, spare meter power cord charger, Alcohol swabs, spare insulin pump reservoir, spare insulin pump Mio set change, glucose tablet canister, Emergency Glucagon kit (epi-pen), & a safe place to discard all the used medical supplies. It would keep all those necessary supplies at hand when they are needed, not in there own separate bags....

    This bag would become my medical grab bag, with an impeccably beautiful design to top it off.

  14. This is something I've been looking for. It would be amazing to have one spot to organize all of my diabetic needs. This would especially be convenient for work/outings. I hate feeling like I've missed/forgotten something I need simply because I couldn't fit it anywhere. Plus, it's totally adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've been lusting after one of these since last year's giveaway! I love it! I would take this thing everywhere. It'd making switching big purses a lot easier if I had this to keep all my diabetes gear in. And I have some serious test strip graveyard problems. Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would use this clutch for sorority recruitment in January and also the perfect bag for every day at college. It makes me happy to carry around my diabetes supplies because it's a bag even a non diabetic would love. It would fit all my testing supplies, insulin, dexcom, and gluco tabs, along with regular stuff like makeup and money.

    ReplyDelete
  17. OOh, this bag looks perfect! to have one bag that could organize all of my diabetes gear would be amazing!! I'm currently using tons of little pouches and such to try to organize everything, and would love to have this one awesome bag!

    Great for everyday use and travel..

  19. I would use this clutch to FINALLY move out of the generic black bag my meter came with. I have yet to find a bag that would work...until I saw these. I would absolutely LOVE this bag.

  26. My type 1 daughter would love to use this case for her D supplies!

  27. I am always on the lookout for a great diabetes bag. The more compact, the better. It's so hard to find a clutch that holds just what I need.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is absolutely adorable! I would love to be able to carry just this clutch when I'm going out to a girl's night, a work function, or church, if I don't feel like carrying a huge purse.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would take it to any evening event! I have such trouble finding an evening bag that fits my diabetes inside!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would use the bag for my T1 diabetes supplies especially my meter!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would use the bag whenever I want to leave my giant purse at home. I love that it incorporates a sharps container!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to win this, my current situation is kept in the different bags

    ReplyDelete
  33. A built in waste pocket?! That's genius! I have no fewer than 30 test strips floating around in the bottom of every bag I own. This would be fantastic for keeping meter stuff in.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ohh! I love this! I really need to find a better way to carry my diabetes around at school, this would work awesome I bet :) Maybe I just need to put it on my Christmas List.. *Scurries off*

    ReplyDelete
  35. I need this to attend Steeler games! The NFL recently changed their rules to say only "clutch size purses or smaller" are allowed in the stadium. Not cool for a PWD! Though this is an exception made for "medical conditions", you still have to go through a separate security line to get the exception. I usually end up sneaking my stuff in in a runner's pack around my waist, but I'm always worried about getting caught! I could totally use this to cheer on my boys on the field! I just went to the game last night and pulled the sneak attack again LOL! Here we go Steelers!

  36. For my omnipod pdm extra pods ect! This would go everywhere and not be ugo.

  37. I have been using an old camera case forever. It's in pretty bad shape! This would be a huge upgrade!

    I would use this everyday as a chic, work appropriate case for my diabetes gear and the awesome part is that it looks like an upscale clutch! Love it! Type I for 26 years now and this would be great to have!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would use this adorable bag every day! It's a great size and would fit in all my bags. The fact that it has a sharps container is HUGE! I often put used lancets (when I actually change mine) just thrown in my current bag and end up stabbing myself. What a great bag!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'd use it in or in place of my purse when I need my d-stuff, so all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would use it at work, since I'm about to start my student teaching internship. It would be a handy bag to have around, without having to have my purse within reach--something I prefer to keep locked up. Great for going out to recess and such without having to grab everything.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Since I test so often, the one pocket I have in my meter bag ofter overflows with used test strips while out and about. Sometimes they fling out unceremoniously onto whatever surface I'm using to test when I pull something else out of the same pocket. So - multiple pockets are needed!

    ReplyDelete
  43. With my job I am on the go a lot and when I was diagnosed last month I went from carrying a tiny gift card case as a wallet to carrying a full purse every day. I work with kids and having an appropriate place to put used test strips and sharps in a super cute clutch, would be awesome! My sister found these clutches and I am in love with them! Everything has a place and everything would be in its place!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Where WOULDN'T I use this clutch!?! I've had Type 1 for 17 years and I would love to have a cute little clutch to take out instead of the normal clunky purses that I usually take out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is the cutest diabetes bag I ever did see! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love a good non-medical diabetes bag to have in my purse - especially one that isn't black (cause those always disappear into the purse hole)!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would use this clutch all the time! In my backpack, working, etc. I love the compartments for test strips!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh pretty! And it would mean goodbye black canvas-y thing that comes with the meters and hello gorgeous, stylish look! I might finally graduate to adult bags :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would use it in my diaper bag/purse ALL of the time! Time to make the inside of my bag look pretty again!

    ReplyDelete
  50. So great! I tend to just discard my used test strips in my black OmniPod pump case. This would be awesome. I have a baby and tote all my own stuff in a purse that has a huge compartment for baby stuff. This would be perfect for those times when I DON'T have to carry around her stuff as well as my own gear!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've always wanted one of these! I would use it all the time - but especially when going out with friends. It'd be a great way to make diabetes more fashionable and not such a "bummer".

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm pretty sure I would use it every day. Maybe sometimes I wouldn't need a purse with it!

    ReplyDelete
  53. When I first discovered the Monica Vesci Clutch, I thought that it was a brilliant and thoughtful creation for people who want to carry their diabetic supplies in style, and I still feel that way! Just diagnosed this February, I would find great use for this clutch and the interior organization that it provides. It's the perfect example of beauty meeting functionality and I would take it to work at the office during the week, out during my weekend adventures, and around the house because it deserves to be everywhere, all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Cute, cute clutch! I would definitely use it to keep all my supplies. I'd probably throw it in my big purse most days, but it would be awesome to just grab the clutch when I'm going somewhere that I don't need my big purse. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would love to have a cute bag that can hold all my supplies (and diabetes trash) that I can find easily in my bag. Why are most meter kits black?!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My younger sister was diagnosed with type 1 a week before Thanksgiving this year. Needless to say it has been a huge change for her at 25 yrs old. (Yes, type 1) I was so disappointed at the lack of cute functional bags for her supplies. This is the PERFECT clutch for her! She loves chevrons and before just a few weeks ago she didn't carry a wallet or purse. I REALLY want to win this for my sister because when I finally found the Monica Vesci Clutch, they were all sold out! What an awesome Christmas gift this could make for her!

  57. I would use it all the time... I think I have test strips everywhere and Ive only had T1 for 1.5 years...

  58. This would totally go where I went. Time to get my gear in a fashionable tote! FINALLY!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well I would use it in my giant purse. I seem to be perpetually unable to find what I am actually looking for these days!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I like this bag! Right now my purse is a huge mess and I just throw my meter and other supplies into the bag but I would love a stylish bag that would keep everything organized for me. I would love to have a cute bag that can hold all my supplies.
