Lets Enjoy This While We Can II

Okay, quick little outfit post. I know the outfit is simple, I kinda look like a pilgrim, my braid's sloppy, and my eyes are squinty from the sun, but I wanted to post something! Lol.

I LOVE this dress! I got it from Value Village during their 50% off Labor Day Sale for $2.99? (I don't know for sure, my mom got a hold of my receipt and threw it away...dang it!) I couldn't believe it! I've been searching for peter pan collars forever and never found anything until I unexpectedly pulled this dress from the rack. I almost let out a happy little shriek in the store! Hah. I didn't even notice it had cute heart shaped buttons on the cuffs and on the back of the collar until later.
I didn't try it on in the store and it looked a little big so I was trying not to get my hopes up, but I was determined to buy it anyways. Then I went home, washed it, tried it on and it fits nicely. I was very glad that I didn't have to take it in or sell it. It's all mine! =D

I've had the shoes for a very long time and they certainly have been through some times with me. They're a bit worn, but I can't bare to get rid of them. Do you guys have something in your closet that you can't seem to throw out too?

Okay, now on to blogging business.
I've decided to do a giveaway for every 50 followers that this blog gains. So right now, we are 13 followers away from free stuff. That's not much. We'll get there, I promise!
The giveaways will vary. I'm thinking jewelry, accessories, magazine subscriptions, fashion/makeup books...who knows, pretty much anything fashion related! I want to choose prizes that everyone can enjoy so I'm not sure about doing clothing items or shoes just yet. We'll see.
Does that sound good?!?

I'm also planning on doing a vlog post. My camera records in HD and .mov format (for those who know what I'm talking about, lol) and my video editor won't accept my videos so I'm trying to figure something out.

XOXO,
Courtney

Like yourself, I've been on the eternal quest in search for a dress with a peter pan collar! I haven't found one yet, but I'm not going to give up :) You have given me hope!

The one you found is truly perfect! It looks lovely on you and the little heart buttons are just so adorable...
