And I have to say, I've been pretty pleased with the response I've gotten from strangers! I'm not going to lie and say I don't care about comments, because I do. I love getting comments! I love knowing that I'm putting this out there and people are reading it. That said, I'm lucky that I haven't received any negative comments yet. And as a thank you to all of you who read this, I wanted to have a giveaway!
First though, I have an outfit for you.
Gray v-neck tshirt - NextLevel via Amazon.com; Black vest - Mossimo, thrifted; Black pants - Gap; Black heels - Ettienne Aigner via Macy's; Scarf - vintage
A funny thing about this vest. I used to have the EXACT same vest in a size large. During the Great Purge of 2011, I got rid of it because it was too big. A few weeks ago at a thrift store, I found this vest, in a size small. I've always been a vesty sort of lady, so I was super excited to pick it up. And, you know, the fact that I've gone from a large to a small is nothing to scoff at!
Okay, so! Here's what I'm giving away!
Patina is a local store full of all kinds of fun stuff. They have a little bit of everything: jewelry, fancy soaps, candles, kitchen things, stationary, home decor. Like I said, a little bit of everything. I picked up a set of notecards and a pair of earrings to give away!
I'm not even lying when I say I wish I could win my own giveaway. I'm a big fan of notecards. I use them a lot at work, to let people know that I enjoyed working with them or just to say hi to someone I haven't seen in a while. And the earrings are adorable! I should have picked up a pair for myself when I was there last week, but maybe I'll do that next week. I think they're simple, but fun. You could wear them with anything!
Want to win? Leave me a comment! Tell me what you like about the blog or what you'd like to see more of. Tell me a funny story. Write me a haiku. If you can be polite about, tell me what you don't like. Anything! I'll leave the giveaway open for a week and next Wednesday (12/7), I'll choose a winner at random!
As a sidenote, Patina isn't sponsoring this giveaway. I paid for these items out of my own pocket because, hey, it's the season of giving and I'm thankful for everyone who reads this!
