Wardrobe Wednesday | 2,000 Likes Give-Away!


I’m SO excited about today’s post, as it’s been a long time coming. I was thrilled to hit 2,000+ likes over on the Facebook page about a week ago, and that, my friends, is cause for celebration! I had been planning to host another give-away once that milestone was reached and since the Wardrobe Wednesday posts are some of the most popular on the blog, I wanted to make it style themed. Since accessories can go a long way when it comes to putting an outfit together, and can give even a simple look a perfect and added “pop” I’m so excited to be offering several pieces that I would definitely be happy to have in my wardrobe. So, without further ado, let’s see what’s up for grabs!

Wardrobe Wednesday 2000 Likes Give Away_0001.jpg

I get so many compliments on my thrifting abilities, so I wanted to make this give-away personal by thrifting something personally that I would love using, myself. So, when I came across this adorable vintage Nine West purse in amazing condition (and for only $4!), I knew it was the perfect piece! In addition, I just had to include a piece from one of my favorite local jewelry designers (and one of my 2013 brides!). Mary makes the coolest stuff. I have one of these gold leaf necklaces and wear it a ton. You can see it here and here, to show just a couple examples. Annnd, of course, I still love me some Anthro and everyone loves a gift card.

I ALSO love it when give-aways allow more than one person to win….and I love Mary’s necklaces so much that there are two other prizes up for grabs, as well!

I hope you’re all as excited about these amazing items as I am! I would seriously use/wear each one of them, and those kind of give-aways are the best, in my opinion. Not that I think my style sense is all-encompassing or superior….but at least if no one enters I’d get to enjoy them. ;) But seriously, enter below and be sure to spread the word! This give-away will be live through next Tuesday, and I will announce the winner in next week’s Wardrobe Wednesday post. Good luck, friends, and thank you SO much for all of the support! This business wouldn’t be what it is without such amazing clients, supporters, friends and family, and I’m truly grateful. :)
