Vintage Dress Giveaway!

Hello readers! I post to you this Thursday with a first for my blog: a small little giveaway. I have had this vintage dress for awhile now, and thought it might be time that it made its way into another wardrobe. I chose it for its florals, since Spring is slowly and surely approaching. I have always wanted to hem it in order to make it a short little shirtdress, but I'm so not inclined to do things like sew that it has never happened. Take a peek!

Below is a little peek of me in this dress when it was green & warm & sunny. This dress evokes memories of this beautiful summer day I spent in a field, so please let one of my vintage finds be your next wardrobe addition.

To Enter

I would love to have you follow me on TwitterBloglovin', or Google Friend Connect, but it is not mandatory!

Simply leave a comment on this post with one reason you love vintage. Remember to leave me your e-mail address so that I can contact you, should you be the winner. The winner will be chosen at random, and it is open to everyone (international). The giveaway will run until February 28th (Midnight! Atlantic Standard). The winner will be announced the next day, March 1st! Good luck!

One, vintage looks timeless, the cut is always so flattering because tailors took into consideration the true shape of a woman and because someone got to make memories in a garment and it's exciting to think of all the places it has been. x

Great giveaway!! The thing I love about vintage is how it looks timeless and the challenge of incorporating it in with the current wardrobe!

I follow you on twitter and with google friend connect!

I love vintage because of the fat that the garment has a history to it. I really like thinking about vintage pieces as being bookmarks to other times. :D

I love vintage because it's really hard to find someone wearing the same thing as me. Plus it's just fun hunting around for it!

I'm already following through google friend, but I'll definitely follow you on twitter:)

This is such a pretty dress! I love the gentle print.

I have to say I love vintage pieces because they are so unique - they have been loved and worn and lived in before and I like bringing new life to the items. There is also something about the hunt for the perfect vintage piece, it is always like searching for treasure, in my opinion, which is super fun.

This is really a gorgeous piece and so perfect for spring. I love vintage because it is timeless, one of a kind, and I love thinking of the memories I will make in the piece and what it has seen in its time before me. Vintage pieces have a whole other life to them but it's a great feeling to add to that life, breathe new life into it. I follow you via google and twitter.

Vintage dresses makes it easier to conjure up the black spirits when I do spells.

Aw, this is such a generous giveaway, Kristen!! I love this dress!

Hm, let me see...I love vintage because it just reminds me what you wear now or whats on trend during a specific time, styles always come back around and its more about how you wear items than what you're wearing.

LOVE your blog and your style my dear. Just discovered you from a #ff on twitter.

Lovely dress.
I adore vintage because every item is so unique and has a story behind it. I like the style, the textures, colors... And I love the moment when you spot the perfect item while thrifting!

Vintage means one of a kind and that is what everyone should try to be - unique and timeless :)

Thank you for offering a lovely and generous gift. I have many reasons to love vintage, but my favorite is because it reminds me of lost loved ones. Each time I wear my mother's charm bracelet, the coat my grandmother knitted or use my aunt's Pyrex dishes, I think of them and just how much they meant to me.
