We have a winner!


I went to the random number generator and asked them to give me a number between 1 and 156 and the number they gave me was 30. 30 .  . . .   I wouldn't in a million years pick 30 out of that many numbers but I guess that is why it is so random.  I hit it 3 more times and it gave me 6, 17, and 101. . .. !!!!!!  I don't know but I think a number like 72 or 113 is so much more random than those, but I am not a random number generator, obviously. So anyway, I counted through the entries to, ahem, 30 and was careful to not count any people from other countries (you are still winners in my book remember that) and after counting and double counting I have found this to be the winning comment of the Bangles from the giveaway:

I probably should use this time to comment on how fabulous that bracelet is and would be on my little arm, but I also want to say that you seem to be a genuinely awesome person and this blog has been very inspirational to me.
Thank you!
Congratulations Rebecca! Thank you for your very nice comment as well!  I will be emailing you shortly with the details! And, really, thank you everyone who entered to win it.  I was surprised and shocked by the turn out. 
Just in case you were wondering, it has been a very refreshing and enlightening time for me these past few days.  Truly, struggle brings growth.  I feel very sparkly and new and energized from this finding. I have visual metaphors and analogies for you to describe all of this but they all border on cheesy and sappy so I will spare you all of that.  Just know that I feel better now.  Sunnier.   A little . . . Sparkier.  Less hard work. (you seen High Fidelity?) So ya. Ahhhhhh.  The drama has lifted.  It feels good.  
I took these pictures on Saturday actually.  I have been wanting to wear this silk sheath dress for over a year now but it took me seeing the super cool hot chick from DIRTY HAIR HALO tie her sheath dress at the bottom to realize how to make it work.  Thank you Shannon. (I told you in the comment of that post that I would do this someday.  Betcha thought I forgot or was just kissing your butt, but I didn't and I wasn't.)

The print and cut of the dress is so beautiful, you find all the beautiful stuff in the world! Ah!!!

Lucky US readers...

Well I'm so glad that you're feeling better and sunnier and sparkier... This is a relief and I can see all these from you face (a little bit) which is more relieving.

By the way, you thought the same about the Avatar movie ha? Oh you should have seen the animation series, it really was something much mature and I'm sure you'd like it if you watched it from the beginning and it doesn't have the racist thing that I also realized in the movie!!! I think we should blame the director, he isn't a good director anyways...

I'm happy things are going better for you ♥ ♥
that dress was made to be tied. What a random and wonderful idea!

It's so exciting to see my shoes on you! altho it's more like your shoes on me since I'm wayyy behind but regardless, it's fun!
I am wearing them today, I am determined to break them in. I may just have them stretched at a shoemaker where it's too tight. That will be my last resort tho, I dont want to warp them!
This outfit is great, you are so drop dead gorgeous, I swear you need to start modeling woman.

Oh, those wonderful shoes go with everything! It's amazing how a brightly coloured accessory at first thought will be of limited use in one's wardrobe, but then turns out to be such a winner. Beautiful look!

Annie said...

Can't decide which I like more the shoes or the dress.... both look so good on you but I think I'd have to go for the shoes - not sure could pull of the dress!

Glad things are on the up!

Love the shoes and I too have been experimenting with knotting dresses. You pulled it off stunningly.

MY DAY HAS BEEN MADE... by YOU!

Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

I am very glad to hear that the sun is shining in your life again. Everything just clicked.

Just like this perfect outfit. The print is incredible and goes so perfectly with the shoes, hat, and purse. It couldn't be a happier get-up.

You look so twenties here it's insane. Especially that first picture, I don't know. Something about it.

And I freaking love Hi Fidelity. Hello, mixtapes! And organizing ideas by number! (and John Cusack, ohmygod!)

So glad to hear that you're feeling sparkier!

It sounds like it wasn't an easy time. You've displayed incredible strength and so much character in how you've been real, honest, private and discreet all at the same time.

I could learn a lot from you. :)

I am so glad you are feeling better and things are better in your life! Drama is no fun unless you are a thirteen year old girl! (well, at least it was fun for me when I was a thirteen year old girl...;-).

Oh, and I have to tell you: THAT DRESS. I have never seen something on a fashion blog that I love as much as that dress. If you ever decide for whatever reason to sell it, feel free to contact me first and ask an exorbitant price. Because it is AMAZING. And you look amazing in it.

LĂ­via said...

Well this blog is a inspire to me too! =) I already said, for me, you posted 6 times a day! I love this shoe ... its amazing how its not a neutral color, but goes with everything what you use! I'm already liking this color!

Terri said...

I love the detail in the hem--tied huh?

You paired the dress beautifully. Sorry to hear it's from an ex-girlfriend. Hopefully it doesn't change how you feel about such a nice dress.

Lara said...

That dress is just amazingly beautiful! The print is so great!

a cat of impossible colour said...

Hooray! I am glad you are feeling sparkly like a very sparkly simile.

myedit said...

It seems we both posted a dress with a tied hem... crazy. It's so much easier than hemming it and way too cute!

megan at Transmission Me said...

This really reminds me of a flapper look and I'm totally gushing!! Soooo gorgeous!!

Alexa said...

I know I'm replying to this post so late but I just wanted to say how much I love your shoes! They're just the perfect color. :)
