Play PopSugar's Retail Therapy and Enter to Win One of 7 Designer Handbags




PopSugar just launched a new Facebook game, PopSugar's Retail Therapy, where players get to feel the experience of running their very own high-end fashion boutique while mixing and matching their favorite brands from Gap and TopShop to Diane von Furstenberg and Barneys New York. Hmm...now I know why 40% of time women spend on Facebook is spent playing games!

To celebrate this virtual world, PopSugar is giving away the real deal—seven different real designer handbags, that is— each one better than the last in PopSugar's Retail Therapy's first ever contest. Think Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Chanel and more.

Click here to enter, but be forewarned, it's addictive!
