$100 5 dresses GIVEAWAY!!!

I purchased five dresses/rompers and spent probably way too much money. Here is the list of items I got for you all:

1)Denim Romper: $14
2)Floral Romper: $18
3)Thrifted Floral Dotted Dress: $26
4)Miley Cyrus Floral Romper: $12
5) A. Byer Black Ruffle: $17

First Dress:
Okay, technically this is a romper but it's the cutest thing in the world. Totally versatile and totally comfy. It's also very flattering! I got it from Ross for SO cheap. It's denim and the adorable "belt" detail is so sweet-plus the buttons couldn't be any cuter! The back is rouched and stretchy, allowing versatility in how it will fit :) I was so proud of this purchase! I got it in a size Medium (7-8), but honestly, it could fit a lot of different body types given the elastic give in the back and buttons.

Second Dress:
This romper is OH SO PERFECT. The floral detail is absolutely gorgeous, if you ask me, and it is seriously the most comfy item in my closet. Yes...I did have to buy myself one, hehe :). But it seriously is SO versatile and you can wear it with a blazer, cardi, tights, heels, flats, layered shorts, shirt, tee under, lace shirt under...anything!! But, gosh, let me reiterate, this is SO comfortable. And I got it on sale for so cheap. It was $18 off of about $45 I think?? Yes. It's a thing of beauty.
Check out the back!! The back has a criss-cross design that is SO CUTE! Also, the sides are elastic and stretchy so also very flexible for sizing. THIS ROMPER IS AMAZING. Also a size Medium.

Third Dress:
This dress was by far the most expensive and probably the "splurge" of the giveaway. I picked it up at this AWESOME store in my hometown called Storm Cellar that sells used but in good condition vintage clothing. Seriously, it's my favorite place to shop. You can find amazing vintage everything and for cheap! Not goodwill cheap, but not brand expensive. I picked up this adorable polka dot navy button dress there for $26...which was steep, but it's so worth it. Vintage!! Can I say that again?? VINTAGE! You won't find it anywhere else! I really tried to pick items for every type of girl's wardrobe and this definitely was aimed for the classier/vintagey girl :). Anyone could wear this so cutely though! The ruffles on the button up and sleeves are SO precious.
Size 11. Which is so strange because it fit me (size 4) but then it fit my best friend (size 10) and my sister (size 0). It's like the sisterhood of the traveling pants dress!!!!
Fourth Dress:
Okay, please don't hate me....yes, this romper is of the Miley Cyrus/Max line...but isn't it adorable?? This dress was more aimed for the hip/modern/boho fashionista side, but again, so easily versatile. I can see specific bloggers adding a blazer, or belting it and wearing bad ass heels/boots, wearing a cardi/tights...easily versatile. (note: most used words in this post are cute and versatile ;) ). I got it for $12 and couldn't be happier. It's so comfortable! The tribal print is so sweet. Oh! And the bows on the straps are a nice touch, too!:)
 Dress Five:
If you ask me, this is the big STEAL of my blog shopping. It's A. Byer and so, so classy. Definitely more aimed for the girly/classy/chic side. It was originally over seventy dollars but I got it for seventeen!! The pearls are an amazing touch that just adds to the whole thing, plus, they aren't attached to the dress or anything so you can easily wear them with other clothes. I love the satin ruffled skirt- it's perfection!!! This might be my favorite piece of the giveaway....but I truly love each and every one.

and my secret...
I knowingly ate a bug last night. I was driving home while eating a snowcone, and I saw a gnat in there... I could either just eat it, or waste a whole half of my snowcone (because I didn't have a spoon or anything to scoop it out, plus I had to keep one hand on the wheel). But I really love snowcones... so I just went for it :)

Kimberellie said...

This is such a great giveaway I prob. will blog about it (when I get my act together, I will let you know!).

I keep coming back to this post, because truth is, I just don't want to share a secret!

Ah, but I must, mustn't I? Well here it is (I thought of a not so bad one):

I often feel uncomfortable talking talking to other wives about "husbands" because I really haven't anything bad to say about mine! I guess I just worry that people will be jealous or annoyed that my husband is thisclose to perfect. Isn't that funny? Not as in hahaaha, but as in weird.

But it even makes me a little uncomfortable here. But yes, I adore him, and I swear our marriage is as good as it gets!!! All due to him, mind you, I'm a pain in the butt (really, I really am!).

Hope I win your give away!

ps. you're fantastic.

ps. ps. I also once peed in behind my car on the street (I really had to go). Later I realized: I was behind my car, yes; but I was IN FRONT of

(though I have told people that one so it doesn't really count, but is ppretty funny!)

I'm following you! (how creepy does THAT sound?) / sandboxromance.blogspot

My secret is that I found you because I was on Teika's blog and saw your sweet little comment on her latest photo and thought your blog was adorable. Apparently to me that means I "stalk" Teika, which I find awkward and creepy, but I really can't help myself! Yikes, I sound like a nut.

Can't hurt to give this droolicious giveaway a shot!

Secret: when I was in primary school, I told classmates that there was a snake in the school field just to see whether I'd be caught lying. They believed me. Apparently I gave everyone a good impression in my school, so I didn't bother to correct that lie o_O

Jo said...

hello stranger :) I've just found out about your adorable blog because you've commented on mine. I started my blog not too long ago, it's not very common here in Portugal, and just my boyfriend and a couple of friends knows about it, and I wasn't very enthusiastic about it...Actually, I thougt it would suck, and that nobody would ever see it and you just gave me (a huge smile and) motivation to keep on 'cause somebody saw it and it's worth it already! And that's my secret, thank you eheh following now ;)


Megan said...

This is such a gorgeous giveaway and so generous.
Not sure of what would fit and not but that is what sisters are for.
Before I leave the house I have to check that I have turned the hair straightener off three times as I am scared of burning the house down.

The Daily Fashionista said...

What an unbelievable giveaway! I guess my secret I haven't told anyone is that I feel like I won't amount to anything in my current job and I am contemplating quitting in order to work at a coffee shop. I love people, coffee, and art and this one particular place has peaked my interest.

I will follow you as soon as I'm done writing this, and will write about it in my new post tonight!

email: leah87[at]iinet[dot]net[dot]au

secret: I HATE making phone calls, to anyone, about anything. I'm nervous and forget what I'm calling about and get flustered and just get it over with as quick as possible. It's something I don't think I'll ever get over. So silly!
