Giveaway Time: From me to you!

I'm so very excited to give you guys my first giveaway! I decided since I love you all so much I would give you a couple of things from me, something old and something new:

First is this brand new bottle of Limited Edition Essie nail polish (Turquoise & Caicos). I picked it up just for you guys... I mean who doesn't like teals and mint colors?!

Second is this really pretty H&M dress I picked up a couple years ago, but have not worn even once. Why? I really have no idea how to wear it. It was home on a mannequin in my room for a while (and everyone loved it) and so I am now passing it on to a home that will love and and wear it in the most fashionable ways! This dress is a size 4 but will fit like S/M.

To enter this giveaway:

1. You must follow this blog. (Click the follow button to your left!)
2. Leave a comment telling me how you would style this dress! (Only comment if your entering!!)

This giveaway will run for a week until Sunday @ Midnight.

This giveaway is only open to residents of the US (Sorry International readers D: )


  1. Aww lovely dress..... wish it was open to international bloggers!!


  2. Yay, giveaway! Thanks Caitlyn!

    1) I'm already a follower
    2) I would style this dress, come the fall, with an over sized cardigan in either a hunter green or maroon and a brown pair of opaque tights. And lots of chunky bracelets, of course!!

    Great giveaway.

  3. great giveaway! love the nail polish! i would style that dress with a bikini! its perfect for a long day on the boat!

  4. I love the nail polish--that's my favorite color :) The dress is cute too, of course.

    Hmm. I'm not sure. I think I would try tucking the dress into a skirt and wearing it as a top at first. Probably a cute floral skirt with gold flats.

    I'm following you with bloglovin'. Does that count?

  5. Lovely dress! I would probably wear it with floral tights and brown vintage roper boots with some type of girly head band and simple sweet necklaces. and i've been following you for a while now, i just love your blog!

  6. I am a nail polish freak and that color is so awesome!
    I'm following you already!
    And I would style this dress with some black boots and black floral tights that I have and a vintage floral scarf (floral print in honor of you since you always look great in it!) And some colorful rings that match the scarf along with a heart shaped locket that I have.
    Heres a sneak peek of the scarf and boots and just some of the rings.
    I love this dress!

  7. I think I'd wear it with a cardigan and belt it and throw my pink tutu underneath to give it some volume. I'd probably wear some flats and maybe a chunky necklace or something simple depending on if it looks like too much. I SO love it though, the buttons and the shape are too cute! You could seriously wear it so many ways, but I can see why it would be hard to style! The nail polish color is also awesome! Here's to fingers crossed! Great giveaway :)

  8. I think I would pair the dress with a black blazer and wear really minimal jewelry with it since the dress is so amazing on its own, but then I would also wear it with a straw fedora that has a huge pink flower and a black ribbon pinned to it. As far as shoes go, I think lace-up brown and white oxfords would work for the dress in summer, but then in winter I would add opaque gray tights with black and white mary jane flats.

  9. Lovely nail color and love the dress!

    I would definitely pair it with a bright color. If not that, then pile on the jewelery and that'll be my "statement." I might could even put on my straw fedora, some cute wedges and I'll be set!

  10. such a sweet blog.

  11. So cool

  13. oh cool give away!! id style this dress with a tan skinny low slung belt, tan multi strap wedges, giant sun hat, gold vintage chains and a picnic basket (perfect picnic dress!)

  14. oh boo didnt see the bit about only for US followers..oops!

  15. Oh my, I lovelovelove the nail polish color. Too cute.

    Hmmm, the dress. I would wear a cute little purple cami underneath and perhaps belt it. Of course, I'd have to wear a cute necklace and possibly some ankle boots (I'm still thinking of the ones in the post you just did).

  16. a brown scarf around the waist and a brown jacket and knee boots!! Yup, that would make it very me!
    Oh,new follower and love the nail polish!

  17. love love both! i want that dress! a belt + boots + long necklace and done!

  18. oh, here's my email:

  19. This dress is so versatile. I would either put a skirt on over the bottom half to give it a pop of color and some flare. Or pair it with colored tights and boots. I think gold accessories would look amazing with the cream tone.
    For fall, a chunky deep colored boyfriend cardigan and dark tights with flats.
    The possibilities are endless!


I love to hear from you guys!
