Little Taste... Little Comp...

city chic,dress,vintage

This week I have is a little taste of one of my outfits that I am blogging for City Chic. I went to a bar in Kensington with one of my best friends, (B from Gourmet Lovers Blog) and we both went for fairly vintage looks. I wore the City Chic "Lace Corsage Emma Dress" with the "Ruffle Shoulder Shrug". I never try for vintage looks so enjoyed trying it out, very much.

In other news, I was thinking about my last post. A reader I'd never heard from before, Rachie, made a really flattering comment - completely unsolicited and genuinely nice. Thank you Rachie, you made my week. Lovely, fellow bloggers responded too... and then, I also heard from one of my best friends via email from New Zealand commenting on the post... and it got me thinking. I value everyone who reads this blog and don't take you for granted, so - one of you can win a pair of those earrings.

There are a couple of ways to enter, constituting individual entries....

1. Follow me on Google Friend Connect.
2. Follow me on Twitter.

Then to actually be eligible, leave a comment under this post letting me know you have done either or both of those things - that helps me know you read the post - and this competition is a THANK YOU for doing just that.

The earrings are made from Pewter, they aren't too heavy to wear. The ear stems are sterling silver... and the position of the legs seems to vary from pair to pair... all very cool!

Rachie, you inspired me to go ahead with this competition, so if you would like a pair - just go ahead and email me your details...

Everyone else - GOOD LUCK!

PS. Entries close 23rd June at Midnight (GMT)
