Giveaway : Reader Appreciation

November 23, 2010

 *************Giveaway Closed and Winners Announced!*************

In honor of the holiday spirit, I have decided to host my own little giveaway as well (which pales in comparison to ones hosted by PAG, Angie, and a host of other bloggers but I have to start somewhere, right?). I have won a few contests in my short time on the blogosphere but haven't really sponsored a real one of my own. I have gotten to know some really sweet bloggers, petite friends, and readers through blogging and really want to show my appreciation for your support.

In a recent shopping trip, I picked up a few pieces from Romeo & Juliet Couture, a brand that I learned about at first through Hautelook. They can often be found on sale and some of the designs are incredibly cute.

I am giving away two items, a beige shawl cardigan in size S and the eggplant short jacket in size M. I picked these two pieces because one of the concerns I had about giving away clothing items is that it may not be for everyone, but I feel these two can accommodate a range of sizes and styles.




This should be easy enough. :) Please leave a separate comment for each entry, thank you!

Mandatory: Please tell me which of the two items you would like to win in the first comment that you leave.

(+1 Entry) please leave a comment below suggesting what I can do to improve this blog
(+1 Entry) become a follower through Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin
(+1 Entry) tweet about this giveaway
(+1 Entry) add the following button to your blog sidebar

Don't forget to leave your contact information in the comment!

Contest ends December 6, 2010 at midnight.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway, Elle!! I love your blog and all the different ways you style pieces that you find. So many great inspirations!

    It's hard thinking of something to improve, but I would say the only thing would be maybe to have some more light when you take your pictures. Sometimes the outfits are hard to see. But that's really it!! I'm so in love with everything else here in your blog!

  12. of the two items, i would get the eggplant jacket.. I don't have anything in that color, and I think it would be such a fun piece to wear =) I own a lot of black, so this can definitely spruce it up a bit =D

  16. I think your blog is great right now! I don't know if it's just me, but it scrolls really far off to the side. :S Most blogs I go on don't need horizontal scrolling, so you might want to look into that. : ) I think it might have to do with the length of the banner?

    Instead of posting giveaway buttons on the side (because that can really clutter everything), you can make a separate page for giveaway buttons! I have one on my own page for reference. : )

    I'd also like to see more of your day-to-day life here! Anything else but clothing reviews and hauls. ; ) Your fave foods, photos outside of your home, etc!

    Of the two items, I'd pick the eggplant jacket. I know it's a size M, but the fit looks pretty okay on you! I know I'm a bit smaller than you so if I win, I hope it fits!

  17. I honestly like your blog the way it is. A few things that you may want to experiment is take the close-up shots of your outfits perhaps, with more lighting of course. I also enjoy reading personal topics too.

    I have seen several bloggers who do not wish to show their faces, yet have very successful blogs. You can be one too without feeling pressured that you have to come out :)

  18. Elle! This is a super fab giveaway!! I'm not going to enter b/c I've already been the recipient of your generosity and that wouldn't be fair, BUT~ I do have a lil recommendation! Would you consider putting tags/labels on the right side of your blog with brand names that you've blogged about? I think you might have had that up before.. it's just something I find visually helpful, and preferrable to using the search box since you can only search one thing at a time.

  19. elle-- i'd love to enter and i'm a follower. i love your blog just the way it is... but wouldn't mind getting to know you more!

    ReplyDelete
  20. elle are you kidding me? my puny giveaway pales way in comparison to yours :) i would love to win the shawl cardigan because it's such an amazing fashionable cold weather piece

    (i hope i'm doing this right ... first comment)

    ReplyDelete
  21. darling i wish your bf would let you show your face :) you're so pretty it's a shame. i think to make your clothes look more true to colour, try adjusting the white balance on your camera. i know that indoor lighting sucks the crap out of pictures but it should help a bit. i would love to see some more reviews from you and possible fitting room talks :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. As for suggestions, I definitely LOVE the "wear it 5+ ways" feature, those are so fun to scrutinize hehe. The only thing I could think of to improve is larger pictures so we can see more details of the clothes, but you've already recently started to do that so.... I don't have much else to add! :)

  71. To improve this blog, I would change the size of your top banner. I use a netbook and it is too wide for my resolution, while many other sites fit on my screen. I have to make your site 83% to fit everything. Maybe you can make the background like pink/beigy so it is cuter :D

  81. I agree with Erin in that showing your face more would be a good improvement (one of the only improvements I can think of!) IMO showing your face makes it more personal and therefore people feel like they can "connect" and in a way know you better. :)

    Otherwise, love your blog!!

  89. I just recently found your blog through Kileen & immediately subscribed! I love your style and reviews, definitely inspirational! & love that your take the time to put different outfits together around one piece. It's more economical & inspires me to use what clothes I have, not shop for more.... yet :P

    The only thing I found wanting was wanting to see your face more. The blurring out of your face doesn't necessarily detract from your content, I guess I just like to put a face to the blog :]

    ReplyDelete
  90. I added the button to my blog :]

  91. I've been "following" your blog for a while now without commenting but I will officially follow it now (DblZeroP) ;) I'd like to win either item but preferably the shawl. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I really like how you edit your pictures but maybe you could show more close-ups, you did that for the shawl but not the jacket ;)

    ReplyDelete
  93. What a fabulous giveaway! Though I really like both pieces, I think the shawl cardigan is great for a triangular / pear shaped figure. Would love to win!

  97. Elle, I just realized that I didn't enter this giveaway! :) I think your blog is fantastic, and if I would suggest one "improvement" that is to not circle out your face on your pictures. I want to see you.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Oh, of course I'm a follower. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. And I tweeted your giveaway just now. Better late than never.:) And forgot to mention, I want the shawl if I win. hehe.
