The Worst Give Away Ever

Shirt, NY & Co. Skirt, vintage, thrifted, shortened, and embellished. Necklace, Zad. Ring, Jan Michaels San Francisco. Brass bangle, World Market. Wooden bangle, swap. Sandals, Franco Sarto. Bag, MCI (thrifted).



This outfit was inspired by a how-to in the May 2009 Lucky:



My skirt used to be the length of Lucky’s dirndl skirt, but I shortened it.

Back in April, I offered to give this skirt to an interested reader. A few people left comments, here and on flickr, expressing interest. And then I never followed through.

Truly. The. Worst. Give away. Ever.

I’m going to try again. You have one more chance to leave a comment. In a week, I’ll draw names from this post and April’s. I hope to redeem myself.

I agree with eednic, it looks cute on you!

I AM giving it away. I'm short-waisted and this sits at my natural waist. That's all fine until I sit down and the waistband is digging into my ribs! It just isn't comfortable on me.

I'm so glad to hear that you're following through! I think it's really admirable that you're sticking to your word, and I'm excited to have a chance about winning. :)

I've been a casual lurker on this blog for a while now, and your style is always refreshing and inspirational. Keep up the good work!

Best,
Jessica

I have been watching your blog for a little over a year now and your outfits have inspired me A LOT. I have MANY of the same pieces and GORGEOUS shoes as you, I just was never really sure how to put them together to look polished and stand out. Your blog has reinvented my wardrobe. Count me in for the skirt. Thanks for all the inspiration!
