I Won $1,100 worth of Clothes = a Giveaway for you!

    As shopaholics, we feed our addiction, and it gets expensive, but there's a loophole my friends, GIVEAWAYS!  Giveaways are a clever marketing tool that people use to gain exposure, but who cares why they do it?  It's free stuff, people!!  Check out all of the fabness I've won in less than a year!!  Yes, less than a year, I barely believe it myself.  Because I am so thankful, and because I love you so much, I have decided to host a giveaway for my readers every time I win something.  Talk about a win-win!!!

    Recently, I won this lovely Shadow Cloak from Samantha Pleet and Refinery29.  It's retail value is $598.00 and is currently sold out.  All I had to do was "like" them on facebook and then tell them how I would style it.  I said I would add a cluster of brooches, some elbow-high leather gloves, matching knee-high boots, and some sassy tights, and bada-bing, bada-boom, it was that easy, I won!

Cluster o' Brooches:  When you can't wear a necklace, wear a brooch, or three, or however many you want, it's a free country! 

    Imagine my happiness when my package arrived!  Now, multiply that by 102!!  When I opened the box, not only was the cloak of my dreams inside, but a dress as well, the enchantment dress!!  I was so excited, I thought I was going to have to run laps around the building!!!  How amazingly adorable is this dress?!  Retail value: $455.00, but they just threw it in the box like it ain't no thang!

How sweet is that?

    So, to be sweet back, I wanna give away this vintage collar necklace.  Being the shopaholic that I am, I bought this months ago but still haven't worn it.  I think it should go to a new home where it will be worn and can shine like the star it was meant to be.

Shoe Lust

Ever walk outside and feel the dirt between your toes?  Ew, Gross! 
Ever put your bare foot in a puddle or, worse, gum?!  Double Ew, Gross!
Well, don't worry, my friends, have Jiffy feet no more!!!  There's an invention for this:  SHOES!!!!!!  Long, long ago, God created shoes.  Yes, shoes come from Heaven! 

Being the true shopaholic I am, not only did I recently break my own clothes closet (for the down-low, click here), I recently completely filled my shoe closet.  For kicks (pun intended), I decided to play a little game (it was a slow day) called "Count the Shoes."  Guess how many?!  Did you guess?!  What did you say?!  ...............78.........I have 78 pairs of shoes.  Can I get an intervention?  Just kidding, can I get an Amen?!  I really didn't think it was that out of control, honest!  Since arriving at this harsh reality, I am no longer allowed to purchase shoes.  Sad, I know!  :"(  So, if you want to be my friend, and you should, follow me on Twitter, and send pictures of your lovely shoe purchases to me.  I will live vicariously through you, and it will make me happy.  Come on, you should do it! 

As I mourn my shopping freedom, I reflect back on the good times, and I will now share with you some of my loves, and the great deals I got on them!  Hang on to your hats, or your shoes, whatever!

These babies were free to me, because I had a birthday, and my lovely friend gave a TJMaxx gift card to me.  What a great girl! 

Plato's Closet:  super sale $4  Can you beat that?  Well, can ya, punk?

Super Sale continued!  $8

Forever 21: $22  What a splurge! ;)

Now, for some inspiration

I don't have kids, so I put these Miu Miu's in a frame, ugh, they are so beautiful, I die! 

From my shoe closet: 

Ahh, the wonderful Anne Taintor, a girl after my own heart!  And remember,

Happy Shoe Shopping!!!  Buy some for me!!!
