Time to bring on the Gussy!

When is a zipper pouch not just an ordinary zipper pouch? When it's adorned with a Gussy ruffle, that's when!

The first time I ever laid eyes on a Gussy, I knew I had to have it. I didn't necessarily need it (if you know what I mean), but I had.to.have.it.now.

I seriously don't know a more adorable way to carry around your sweet little nothings than with a Gussy. I'm using my large zipper pouch to house all the little things that used to float around in my diaper bag. Things like hair ties, lip glosses, loose change and random coupons. I'm pretty sure I could name 1000 different ways to use a Gussy.

For instance, do you carry around business cards? How cute would it be to whip out your card out of a signature Skinny Gus?

And oh, for all you future brides out there, wouldn't matching large zipper pouches be the best bridesmaid gift ever?
Like I said, there's 1000 different uses for each and every Gussy. You need one. Your girlfriends need one. Want to learn more? Gussy has a fantastic blog, that's updated often!

WIN ONE! Maggie Whittley, the owner, designer and fabricator of Gussy wants to give a $25 gift certificate to her store! To enter, visit her new shop (or Etsy shop), look around, and leave us a comment how you would use your Gussy!

  1. I would really like the 12 x 8 3 zippered Gussy pouch with pears and apples on it. I have been organizing the backpack we'd grab in case of an emergency, and one of these bags would help me keep small things together, and might lift my spirits in a stressful situation. Thanks for the chance to win.

  13. I would totally steal the idea of finally having a place to put all the small things that are rolling around in the bottom of the diaper bag! Great idea! Super cute little bags!

  15. LOVELY!!! :) I'd use one of these beautiful bags to hold together my necessities in the baby's diaper bag. I hate carrying around a purse AND a diaper bag but don't want to have to change everything over each time I run out w/o the baby, if that makes sense. Wallet, lipstick, checkbook, a pen, my cell, etc. and we're good to go!
