One of you is going to be very lucky. You know why? Because Amy Tremper of Stitch + Hammer has agreed to give away one of her fabulous Stud Wallets. I recently stumbled across Amy's creations and instantly fell in love with her aesthetic and creative energy. Her work is timeless, elegant and yet rustic all at the same time. We later found out that her and I share mutual friends and similar backgrounds. She is based out of Oakland, and runs a studio where she creates these Stud Wallets, a larger version known as a Stud Clutch and one of my favorites the Wrapper Clutch. All hand crafted in the highest quality leather. I would really like to keep this wallet for myself ;) All images above were shot by me at Ost Cafe, big thanks to Alice Gao for being my model.

To win, enter a comment below. Be sure to include a way to reach you. If you want to up your odds by one, tweet or post about the contest on facebook. Adding either Stitch + Hammer or La Buena Vida into the text. The contest will be open until Friday April 6th. The winner will be chosen at random out of a hat :) Good luck!!
