The Romance Novel Blouse Grosgrain Giveaway! CLOSED.

April 27, 2010

Okay I'm not a romance novel reader. But if I were I'd be wearing this blouse to try and get into the part. All lace and cream and ribbons.

I used a very thin floral-embroidered cream material for the bodice and did a knotted smock treatment on the front. I then added a chantilly lace trim at the bottom. I modeled the bodice after a very sweet modcloth cami. The sleeves are a long line of embroidered florets. To give a shabby chic feel I added the loose skewed ribbon that cinches the front if desired.


I thought this gauzy piece looks best paired with light washed, frayed skinny jeans. Unfortunately I didn't have any frayed jeans but Forever 21 sells some pretty cheap skinny jeans in a TON of washes.

I'd say this blouse would fit a size small to medium.

Many of you said that you would like to enter more giveaways, but have various issues with linking. Of course, I want anyone that is interested in entering a giveaway to be able to do so.

Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways:
1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site)
2) By leaving a comment without a link or
3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries which will better your chances of winning). Find more info under the FAQ page.

If you are leaving a link just use the 'create a link' at the bottom of this post or simply creating a post on your blog and including this link.If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.
