frock 'em




I am happy to announce that the good people of chickdowntown have given me the opportunity to let one lucky girl (or boy, whatever) be a big fat winner in
The Year of Living Thriftily's first ever GIVEAWAY! So that is the good news. The better news is that you don't get just one, solitary item to choose from. The winner can pick anything from the RIGHTEOUS, if I do say so myself, selection of MINK PINK items available online. 

I can't lie. I'm jealous. I want to win something adorable. *cue pouting* But the truth is, you deserve it more than I, good readers.

TO ENTER-  Just leave a comment! How easy is that? The winner will be randomly selected (pulled out of a hat or some such) next Monday, July 27th.  If you want to be entered TWICE, mention this giveaway and blog on your blog/facebook/billboard... Give me a shout out (did I just say shout out? hm.) and increase your winning odds. Shameless? yes. Smart? Also yes. Thx Jas.

The Mink Pink selection hints at Penny Lane and feminine wiles. Everything I love in clothing. If I weren't so bound by my oath to the god of thrift, I'd already have the following spoils in my greedy hands,

This would look awesome on me... or you. whichever.

I may be the only one, but I would wear this every.single.day.

For your summertime picnics in flower speckled fields.

This dress gives me a tingly, Chloe for Opening Ceremony kind of vibe, yes?

And that's not all. Go take a look at the Mink Pink goodies yourself. I know a lot of blogs have given away denim and those Elizabeth and James Tee-shirts, which are awesome. But let's face it... I do not wear tee-shirts OR jeans. I wanted to offer something that better reflected my own style and aesthetic preferences. It's my blog and I will drape myself in fringe and ruffles if I want to. 

Besides that, I have my autumn eye trained on some luxuriant scarves from Sir Alistair Rai.

If you want to keep up with chickdowntown, you can find them on twitter and facebook. I know I did.

EDIT: Please make sure you leave me an email address or that your blogger profile is accessible!! If not, I have to no way of contacting you should you win. Should have though of that earlier!!
