My first Give-away!

Last week, I was reading Lola Devlin's Blog, My High Heeled Darling, when she quoted something from a book she has, The Bombshells Manual of Style. I totally related and embraced this philosophy and have decided that my first give away will be a copy of this book by Lauren Stover.


Here's a little trinket of wisdom that I'm re-posting, courtesy of Lola:
"A bombshell is full of contradictions. She is a combustible blend of confidence and vulnerability. Sauce & naivete. She wears high heels but kicks them off at every opportunity. Adores negligees & charmeuse gowns but can't wait to get out of them. She always expects to run into someone who matters, even if she's home alone. A bombshell never dresses carelessly & wear marabou mules around the house...."

Here is how you can win this bible to being glamorous:

Pretty easy? You will get one entry for each thing you do and I will announce the winner on Thursday, January 27 by picking a name out of a hat. I just ordered 2 books from Amazon (one for me and one for the winner), so they should be here by the end of the contest.

Good Luck Bombshells!

What a fabulous first giveaway it is too! Think I need to read that book, see if I can pick up any tips! I've signed up for a beginners burlesque class next weekend, so I might unleash my inner minx yet!

That snippet perfectly explains how I feel about myself most days. I've always felt like a walking contradiction, but after reading that, I am ok with it. Just means I'm a bombshell, baby!

What a fun (and generous) giveaway, Kim! I sometimes wear a cashmere vintage coat as a bathrobe - does that mean I have a bit of bombshell in me? Haha, I need all the help I can get!

I love that book so much. Once, years ago, I made a list of every outfit mentioned so that I could work towards having the complete bombshell wardrobe. :)

Bananawacky said...

I should clarify - I'm not entering, I already have the book. I just got all excited about seeing it on your blog and wanted to gush. :)
You have absolutely fantastic style, btw.
