She’s got moxie: Moxie & Oliver giveaway!


I shoulda known that Caitlin of Moxie & Oliver was a former professional photographer because her photographs of her leather tooled and embellished accessories are awesome.Β  And although it was the perfect staging, lighting & quality of her photos that caught my eye, it was the colors, detailing, motifs and fresh approach to western-styled leather that kept my attention.

Caitlin’s work is an incorporation of traditional leather techniques, but given a modern twist.Β  Made with thick tooling leather, which is stiff at first but does soften, her goods will last a lifetime and as a result are meant to be fashionable but not ‘trendy’. Choose from belts, bags, watch bands, wallets, clutches, flasks, phone cases and more. Good to treat yourself or for a special gift for either a guy or girl!

Head on over to Moxie & Oliver and pick out your favorites…you could be entered to win a moxielicious winner’s choice wristlet from the selection below!

How to win!

Visit the Moxie & Oliver shop, choose your favorites from the shop and leave a comment with your favorite products from the shop. One random commenter will be chosen to win their choice of the wristlets shown below. Since I am quite sure that you will not be able to pick just one favorite, you may share each of your faves, but please leave a multiple comment for each one. That will increase your chances of winning! This giveaway will end Friday, July 10th at 11:59 pm EST.

    I really love the smokey wallet with the antique handwriting, and the tweet guitar strap which I might buy actually, quite pretty!

  2. Funny, your intro says “Better Late THan Never” and I JUST stumbled upon this webiste about 10 minutes ago! I have been looking for a really cool wallet for my fiance who lives in the UK. I reside in NE and really gave up hope on anything cool by his standards! I love the rockabilly quality in your style!! I was looking for a personal gift, a wallet, and a flask all at once and stumbled acroos your beautiful trifold wallet that I can add verbiate to. So freakin’ cool. And the flasks will be for the both of us as we have 7 kids between the two of us!! πŸ™‚ Beautiful stuff.

    They are all so beautiful!

  9. The Hanoko locket is to die.. fab stuff just found you guys through etsy twitter… what a community.THanks!


  10. I decide between the ginger wallet and the smokey trifold wallet. The ginger wallet has a unique and feminine flair that is hard to find, but the trifold has the personalization option which is really neat.

  29. Wow, what gorgeious stuff. That old koi cadillac wallet is lovely, but it’s hard not to lust over the divine woody messenger/laptop bag. Wow! I can only imagine what a fab possession that would be!!!

  30. All of these pieces remind of sketchbook drawings caught in the rain & etchings on a treehouse floor. So coarse & friendly!

  31. I heart the Smoky Sakura Guitar Strap! Well, really, I heart all of them. It looks like there’s a guitar strap in my future (my current one is made of cheapie blue nylon. ugh.)

  32. I am a fan of the belt bags. I realize they sort of straddle that “hip-dorky” line, but I like both of them. I’m willing to risk it!

  33. I also love The Perfect Cowgirl – Ginger Belt in Sage, White and Antique Black, and Buckle in Silver and Copper. Timeless with jeans.

  41. I love the Poppy Purse because it’s sturdy in shape and looks like a good handbag for day to day life, but it has that extra “something”! Such a cute design!

  42. The Ginger Leather Sketchbook is perfect for me…I am an artist and have a sketchbook with me wherever I go. Even better if it’s a pretty one like this!
