  1. My favorite would have to be the vintage – meg in floret!!

    (also, i liked your facebook page, do i post a second entry on there?)

    1. My favorite is the Frenchie in Dandelion! I wear a lot of black and feel like that would pair perfectly with it for a pop of color.

  2. I looove the Frenchie in Pale Pink. This is one of my wedding colors and I think it’s so classy! Love the ruffle detail!

  3. Oh my goodness, I can’t even tell you how perfect the powder blue Frenchie would be for my wedding!! Our main color is powder blue, and no one “gets it”! (I think this lovely little bag would help πŸ™‚ Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!!

  4. I love the Frenchies with brooches but I think I would choose the Black Frenchie for versatility’s sake. So pretty! Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. Wow. All of these are stunning. From the Frenchies I like the classic black and bold colors like Emerald, Berry and Dandelion. And from the vintage bags my absolute favorite is the Meg in Japanese Forest print, but also like the Meg in Lovelace and Floret prints, and the Audrey in the Stems & Blossoms print. Crossing my fingers (and toes) for this one, ’cause this is a good one!

  6. Oh wow, these are all so lovely! The Dandelion colored Frenchie would be my top pick. Anything yellow seems to brighten my day!

  7. Wow, these bags are gorgeous! Adding them to my Christmas wish list if I don’t win here πŸ™‚ I have many favorites, but I think my #1 pick is the Vintage Annie Lovelace.

  8. As soon as I saw this giveaway I knew I HAD to win! My friend designs bridal gowns. Her collection is called Ila Bean. If she doesn’t need an Ila bag, I don’t know who does!
    I would choose the Frenchie in Pale pink for her. Maybe she’ll let me borrow it someday!? lol

  9. I just adore the Pink Ballet print on the Meg and Annie styles. They are a perfect match for my wedding colors – it would be delightful to call it my own on my wedding day!

  10. The Frenchie – Orchid is sublime! It will match the bridesmaid’s dresses perfectly and will pop off my vintage inspired dress!

  11. These collections are beautiful. I love the Frenchie in Hibiscus, but my absolute favorite is the “Meg – Florette” (and not just because of the name, hehe)!

  12. OH My GOODNESS!!! I Can’t even tell you which one is my favorite! I love the bottom two!!! I love the dark Frenchie. But at the same time the white vintage with pink flowers is GORGEOUS!!!!!!

  13. All of the Frenchie’s with the vintage brooches are to.die.for. Or, the Frehnchie in berry to match the bridesmaid’s dresses!

  14. The Frenchie in Berry is lovely. My sister is getting married next year, and I’d definitely love to win one for her… though I’d probably let her pick the colour. =)

  15. These are amazing!!! I would absolutely love the Frenchie in Poppy!!! It would be the perfect accessory for my wedding, which is poppy and aqua! Love, Love, Love.

  16. oh boy… love them all!!! I’d say the Meg Floret is my favorite though, absolutely LOVE the design and colors going on there. Wish the Audrey bags would come back (looks like they are sold out) those are to DIE for!

  17. Though it is hard to pick just one, I would have to go with the Vintage Annie in Pink Ballet. It fits in perfectly with my wedding color scheme of Blush & Grey!

  18. love these bags! i was instantly drawn to the vintage meg-stems and blossoms bag. added bonus- it’s my name! will recommend these bags to my best friend for our bridesmaids bags!

  19. If I would, I’d choose the Frenchie in Navy!! Our wedding colors are navy and pink. I already about my girls their pink clutches and its been so hard finding a fabulous navy clutch for myself!

    If I chose not to pick something for the wedding, I ADORE Meg – Pink Ballet!! That is such a cute, fun clutch!

  20. This week has been rough and I think the frenchie purse in slate blue would be just the think to get me out of the blues. Or maybe off white for the wedding. Or maybe black for all the time.

  21. Oh how I love the vintage collection. So cute and shabby chic (which is the style my heart beats for)! The meg-floret is my choice! Good luck ladies!! πŸ™‚

  22. Frenchie Poppy please!! Perfect for the festive holiday season, and versatile when the weather turns warm again. And red goes with every little black/gold/white/silver/gray/etc. dress!

  23. Love all the Frenchies and would choose the Frenchie – Charcoal because I think the color would fit all of my dresses and I’ve searched for a clutch like this for forever but still don’t own a clutch until today! πŸ™‚

  24. My bridemaids are wearing Charcoal Grey dresses, so the Frenchie – Charcoal would be a perfect accessory for me to match my girls!

  25. I LOVE the Frenchie in Dandelion! Ila has all of my wedding colors (Dandelion, Mint, Hibiscus, and Warm Gray! I wish I could get each of my bridesmaids one!!!

  26. I’ve been looking for the perfect clutch for my wedding. I lovvvve the Frenchie in warm gray. Would go beautifully with my silver accents on my wedding day and the blue in our wedding. I would use that clutch again and again. I have to say that I love the Meg-Floret for other times.

  27. Wow! The Frenchie bags come in such gorgeous colours! I love the dandelion, powder blue, and pale pink colours! Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. All of the Frenchies are AMAZING! choosing its hard but thinking about my wedding on December 22nd!!!!! maybe the pale pink or parchment will go with my dress and deco!
    Crazy for vintage also! I love everything vintage! and from this collection definitely the Annie stems and blossom! (Hmm that would go perfect with my wedding too!)

    Great Giveaway! Definitely sharing!

  29. So hard to choose! I think the Frenchie bag in Parchment would go with everything though, so if I had to choose just one, that’s what I would get! Can’t wait to check out Ila next time I’m in the Twin Cities!

  30. I love the color of the Hibiscus Frenchie – which is awesome, because I love any kind of tea that has Hibiscus in it as well!!!!

  31. I just LOVE the first one on the page, the Frenchie with an oval rhintestone vintage brooch, in white, but I’d really LOVE it in powder blue!! It would absolutely go with my vintage themed beach wedding!!!

  32. The Frenchie in Navy is so very pretty and chic! My colors are coral, navy, yellow, and light aqua blue. This would be an oh-so-pretty accent.

  33. Loved all the Frenchie bags and for my ladies, warm grey is perfect. I love the Meg pink ballet for myself but it doesn’t jive with the wedding day pallet.

  34. I would love to win the Frenchie in warm gray or powder blue. I love the warm gray for a neutral! Either would go great with my wedding colors!

  35. My favourite is the Meg – Floret! ItΒ΄s so my style, and it will be perfect with my traditional Saami costume, which I’m getting married in next summer!

    (I liked you on facebook too!)

  36. I love the Annie and Audrey English Garden… they will really make the lavender and pink shades POP at my wedding. Sophisticated and beautiful. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

  37. amazing clutches! I love the Frenchie with vintage brooch, romantic with a vintage vibe. I also love the Dandelion clutch… just beautiful…

  38. I love the Frenchie in Marine. That shade of blue is perfect… I’m using it with raspberry and purple on my wedding invitations.

  39. It’s hard not to love the Meg – Floret from the Vintage collection. Since my boyfriend and I don’t support marriage until it’s marriage for all, we’re celebrating with friends and family at a big 10th anniversary gathering instead. It’s coming up next year and we’re planning to host everyone at The Shady Dell – a retro trailer park hotel in AZ where each of our guests will get their own private airstream trailer from the 1940-60s. That said, the Meg – or anything from the vintage collection – would be perfect.

    Though the Frenchie with the vintage brooches are super glam and perfect for a wedding…

    Love it all! Great find, Ruffled.

  40. Oh.My.LOVE! The Frenchie in Poppy is DIVINE!!! <3 …with one of my vintage dresses or jeans and heels…it screams romance and sass!

  41. What a horribly tough decision! They’re all gorgeous! If it were me, I think I would have to pick the Meg bag in Floret…. I feel like the colors and design would go just as well with jeans and a t-shirt as it would a dress.

  42. Hi guys, thank you for the gorgeous giveaway!
    I love the Annie-Lovelace from the vintage section.

  43. I know it’s sold out right now, but the Annie – English Garden handbag is amazing. I love the pattern and how many outfits I could mix or match it with! And the clasp? Yeah, it’s amazing.

  44. Oh, I’m such a sucker for anything with ruffes or bows, so I adore the Frenchie clutch! The poppy color is delightful!

  45. What beautiful purses! I have been reading ruffled for a long time and this has totally inspired me to comment. I’m all about the Frenchie Peach. What a stunning combination of color, texture, and form.

  46. It is hard to choose a ‘favorite’ since they are all so amazing. I have to say though, if I ‘have to’ choose one, it would be the Frenchie Berry. It would ‘pop’ with just about anything! I am giddy with the idea of being able to carry it!

  47. what an amazing giveaway! I would chose the poppy colored frenchie – hands down. I love to make a statement with my bags and this would be perfect paired with a little black dress for the holidays! thanks for offering this chance πŸ™‚

  48. Its a toss up between Meg in Lovelace and Audrey in Stems and Blossoms — Love the lovelace print but how can you resist a loooong slim cluth like Audrey! Fingers crossed I have to decide!

  49. I absolutely ADORE all of the Ila handbags, but my favorite has to be the Frenchie – Peach. It matches my colors perfectly and has a little bit of that romantic, vintage flair I’m hoping to create on my wedding day!

  50. I absolutely ADORE all of the Ila handbags, but my favorite has to be the Frenchie – Peach. It matches my colors perfectly and has a little bit of that romantic, vintage flair I’m hoping to create on my wedding day!

  51. Frenchie – Berry! This will match perfectly with my handpainted wedding shoes on our special day.. and would make a lovely bridesmaid gift xx

  52. So hard to choose! It might take another week for me to make up my mind, but I’m totally dying between the Audrey – Stems & Blossoms clutch or the Frenchie one in mint.

  53. They are oh so lovely! But considering my serious love for yummy green I have to say the Frenchie Clover would look awfully cute in my wardrobe/by my side!


  54. I love the vintage Meg – Lovelace! I have been searching for a handbag that goes with my wedding colours (bright red & aqua) and this is the first I have found that I really like!

  55. Wow! Beautiful bags! I just love them! They are so simple, but also very refined and elegant.
    I love the Frenchie style, in powder blue. If I win, this will be my “something blue”. I am wearing a champagne gown!

  56. Am loving the ruffles and that dreamy shade of Marine – Frenchie. I’m in need of something blue to go with my something borrowed and new. This purse is gorgous.

  57. I simply ADORE the Frenchie with the vintage broach (the gold seashell like one.) This would compliment our theme perfectly- we will be having a 40s inspired wedding with golds and champagne accents. I fell in love with the brooch, however, for it reminds me of a seashell, and my family has grown up going to the beach every summer, and it would be the perfect touch. I would love love to carry this with me on my special day.

  58. I love, love, LOVE the Frenchie in Parchment. It would perfectly compliment my wedding dress, but also be able to be used again and again afterwards! Thanks for the giveway Ila!

  59. I love the Vintage Annie in pink ballet, but I’m also drawn to the Frenchie in off-white, powder blue, parchment, or warm gray.

  60. I LOVE the Dandelion Frenchie… Simply the perfect color to go with my nautical wedding theme! I also love that the giveaway is from a company right where I live!

  61. I LOVE the Frenchie handbags. The ivory with the vintage brooch would be perfect for me, and the other gorgeous Frenchie ruffled bags would be perfect for my bridesmaids and my mothers’ gifts. πŸ™‚

  62. Oh the lovely choices! I would l.o.v.e. Annie Lovelace because it would be such a great accessory and pop of color on my wedding day and everyday after!!! Thanks Ruffled & ila–so beautiful!

  63. It’s so hard to choose! I think, ultimately, that I’d go with the Frenchie in Iris: it would go best with the wedding AND would match my favorite purple ballet flats!

  64. The vintage Annie – Stems and Blossoms and the vintage Meg -Floret are adorable and chic at the same time! They are feminine and sassy and would give a lovely pop of color to any blushing bride’s or lovely bridesmaid’s emsemble.

  65. I have been drooling over all of them for the past 15 minutes, but if I had to make a Sophie’s Choice, it’d definitely be the Frenchie in emerald. Not only does it scream classic glamour, it also will go perfectly with my bridesmaid ensemble in May! Fingers crossed!

  66. Love the Frenchie style, and so many gorgeous colours to choose from! But I’d have to go with Parchment – a great neutral summer colour that can be used again and again.
    And I already ‘like’ you on Facebook (through my blog’s Facebook page, Act on Inspiration).
    Thanks! Ashleigh.

  67. Completely smitten with the Frenchie in Navy because:
    – the design is a perfectly elegant nod to my twenties style gown’s pleating and scalloped lace;
    – my fiance’s suit is a classy navy blue and it would be great to pick up on that, but til now I couldn’t find anything in this colour that didn’t scream matronly
    – we’re getting hitched in a port town in Western Australia so now we can both have a little sailor blue on the day
    – it’s my something blue!

  68. Oh, my, goodness. How fantastic. I am so torn between the romance of the pale pink and the poppy-ness of the dandelion, but I think the serenity and elegance of the powder blue is my favorite!

  69. I love EVERY. SINGLE. COLOR. of the solid bags!! In fact, the colors that appear on the first page of the site so perfectly match the colors I’m incorporating in to my own wedding, that I’ve been directing people to that link to understand what I mean by my “antiquey/vintage/multi-colored palette” – as that description apparently leaves a little too much to the imagination. πŸ™‚
    Thank you for sharing!

  70. I love the Frenchie in hibiscus. And those broaches are to die for! Especially the star one πŸ™‚

    Love these designs and if I don’t win, they will definitely be on my Christmas list!

  71. All the bags are adorable!! It was soo hard to choose!! buut.. I had to make a decision… I absolutely adore the Meg – Pink Ballet πŸ˜€

  72. i’ve been dying to find a bag for my wedding day and these would be MORE than perfect!! i’m torn between going with the simple off-white or going bold with hibiscus.. i love them both!! eek!!

  73. The Ila Handbags are incredibly modern! As a bride with 7 bridesmaids winning all of my bridal party a clutch would be a tremendous beneficial! I have been searching on Etsy for the perfect clutch and none have been “the one.”

    I am looking for a clutch that can be worn to a wedding and out on a casual night in the city. The Frenchie With Vintage Brooch is exactly that!

  74. The FRENCHIE PALE PINK is just so beautiful! it would go perfect with my vintage themed wedding. If I won, that’s the one I’d choose. Love love love it! makes me excited just looking at the picture!!

  75. Oh these are just so adorable, i’ve been wanting a romantic and whimsical clutch but haven’t found the perfect one…this is it! I hope I’m not too late. I love the frenchies, especially in mint or parchment!

  76. These bags are adorable. If I had to chose one ( which is way to hard) it would be the Frenchie parchment paper. It makes accessorizing easier with it’s color and style. ( Sorry Fashion Design Major right here….hehe…so busted I knoe) Please choose me!!!!!!!!!!! I would <3 to get one of these bags. I could see myself at the senior fashion show with it and graduation. Another cute one is the Meg- Stems and blossoms <3 the colors are so bright and cheery πŸ˜‰ BTW I love your site I'm always on it since I want to go into bridal design πŸ˜€ Great Job on the site!!! it's Beautiful!

  77. The Frenchie-Hibiscus is absolutely stunning!! Would love to tote it around! And I’ve liked yall on Facebook all along πŸ™‚

  78. Holy smokes, how gorgeous are these???
    I love the Frenchie in both Dandelion and Emerald (ahem, GO DUCKS!).

    If I had one, it would definitely accompany me on my engagement photo shoot.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  79. OooooOoooHhhh!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the frenchie in dandelion, mint, or pale pink! Also, I love the Annie Lovelace…wishing, hoping , prayin!! xoxoxo

  80. I adore these Frenchie bags!! I would love one in Plum, Warm Gray or Charcoal because these are the colors of my upcoming wedding!
    P.S. I like your facebook page!

  81. I am obsessed with all of the Frenchie colors, but the black one has to be my favorite! Black goes with everything and the ruffle on the bag adds a great feminine touch.

  82. My favorite handbag is a tie between two, both I would love to have if I won as well, the black Frenchie (very classic) or the first Frenchie with a broach shown (135.00) Both are gorgeous and timeless and perfect. I love them all tho so it was hard to decide!

  83. I LOVE the Frenchie in Hibiscus. The color is so great. You could wear it dressed up at a daytime wedding with a little strapless or sundress OR you could wear it with a fitted white tshirt and jeans and heels. So versatile!
