January: A Few of my Favorite Things Giveaway


2011 is here and a giveaway is long overdue. I know I said when I reached 600 followers (a while back), I would do one but I got caught up in life and everything else so I'm getting re-organized and present you with one now.

Each month for the next 6 months, I will be sharing A Few of my Favorite Things and giving you all a chance to win them. We're kicking off this series for the month of January with one of my favorite accessories: neck cowls. You will get a chance to win a Sofysticated Phunk(.etsy.com) neck cowl crocheted by yours truly. Neck cowls have fast become a favorite accessory of mine because they provide functionality and style. The prize will be similar to this one.

The winner will get to pick what color they'd like it in and I will make it for them.

How to Enter/Rules & Guidelines:

* Must be a follower of the blog and state your Google name (if you don't share your Google name your entry will be disqualified)
* Leave a comment stating your Google name and answer to this question: How and wear would you rock this piece?

The winner will have 48 hours to email me to claim their prize and choose what color they would like their cowl in or their prize will be forfeited and I will pick a new winner. GOOD LUCK!

This is a beautiful ruffled collar. I love neutral colors but i`m trying to avoid them so I would have the collar juxtaposed against a fuschia, or bright blue dress. I would wear the collar as a draped belt, depending on the length of the collar, around the waist. Add some cute platform shoes like these:

this neck warmer is goregous. i would rock with a pair of dark navy skinny jeans, a dark gray oversize graphic tee, purple suede ankle boots, a black leather bomber jacket, oversized gold hoop earring, some big silver bangles (3 of them), and a oversize black and white zebra print bag.

i love your blog. congrats on your successful hair journey.

The top accessory is very unique! I think this would go well with a scoop neck top or a sleeve less top that is gray or black. For accessories long earrings (silver), no necklace, and a nice simple bracelet(silver). The pants can be gray and semi-fitted. The shoes could be ankle boots or booties. Boot color royal blue.
Hairstyled in a nice updo maybe with something that involves a bang. I think the pop of color works well with the shoes and everything else seemingly neutral.
