It's time for A GIVEAWAY!!!!

Here is where I admit to you all that I dropped the ball. You see, I had every intention of doing this giveaway for Valentine's Day, mostly because I know about 50% of the people out there not only dread Valentine's Day, they actually hate it with the fiery heat of 1,000 suns. I wanted to bring everyone some potential joy surrounding VD.... But I was busy napping and talking on the phone teaching underprivileged children how to read and cleaning up the environment. (That would be my children and my environment, someone got jelly into the rug. Again.)

So, in lieu of a Valentine's Day giveaway, I am doing this giveaway in honor of my upcoming birthday. I hope you are all as excited as I am, as I selected a versatile and flattering item. This is an article of clothing which, upon wearing, could not only fool people into thinking you have class by your pulled together look, but also, you could be seriously bloated, PMSing, gassy and eat copious amounts of cake and no one would be able to tell. Plus, both Sarah (big boobs) and I (tiny boobs) tried it on and it flattered both of our figures. Winning!

DRUMROLL.....

This month of February, 2012, the Old Navy sponsored giveaway item is....... this fabulous dress:

the giveaway item

My gal Freda from the Old Navy in Grand Junction, Colorado, is generously sponsoring this beautifully draped, chambray dress. It hits right above the knee, has a built in liner and charming embroidered detailing at the neck. It sports a sexy t-back with a two-button closure. Both Sarah and I thought that it both looked and felt more expensive than the $39.94 price tag. I am truly excited about this dress and will most likely end up buying one for myself.

I put together a couple of looks for you, featuring this versatile dress as the centerpiece.
*Every item featured in the following sets (with the exception of people, the tights and props) can be found at either http://oldnavy.gap.com/ or your local Old Navy.

 Close your eyes and picture yourself walking in sand on a warm beach, with the sound of waves lapping at your feet. You are being admired by a group of heavily muscled, slightly sweaty, shirtless rugby players because your blue dress makes you look smoking hot.


Look 1: aka Rugby players love me and I can't blame them.
Giveaway- Look 3

Now imagine that you are strolling through your local Art District, enjoying the free wine and finger food that the galleries host once a month. You look so fabulous that people keep asking you if you are a French Fashion Model. You shove a cookie in your mouth, pucker your lips and say, "Oui".

Look 2: aka Hell Yes. I'm a Klassy Bitch. Where's the free cheese?

Giveaway- Look 2
Now imagine that you are spending the day taking in the sights of... let's say San Francisco, because I will be there soon, doing just that..... You find a cozy spot for coffee and chocolate, followed by some time spent browsing books (alone, without children whining "I'm hungry!" or you yelling "Don't touch that!!!!"), and then a romantic walk by the water. It is so peaceful, that by the end of the day, you are sitting in warm solitude and actually finishing your thoughts, for the first time in a long time.

Look 3: aka Wow, so this is what I used to be like. I like me.

Blog Giveaway
I know that you are all salivating over this lovely garment and even you three dudes that read this blog want it for your significant other or your teenage daughter. So here is what you can do to WIN:

1.) Leave a comment here (or on my facebook page).

2.) Like Freda's Grand Junction Old Navy page (and make sure to leave me a comment telling me about it.) My links were problematic so type in "Grand Junction Old Navy" into your fb search.

3.) Like my facebook page (again, let me know!). Click on my fb icon on the right side of screen.

4.) Share this post through facebook, Twitter, email or your own blog (and make sure to comment and let me know!)

That's right folks, you can enter FOUR times!

Best of Luck! I will choose the winner Friday, February 17th.

Peace, Love and Fashion,
Johi

  7. Must. Have. Dress. Please take pity on me. . .I am a poor but proud woman and woefully unprepared for the inclimate spring weather. ((le sigh))

    1. Pity has nothing to do with it, I am totally putting the names in a hat and making Thing 1 select someone. Because I like to do things the old fashioned way. Because I have sustained head injuries....

  8. WE ARE GIVEAWAY SISTAS!! Holla!

    I am also a bit hesitant to wear sleaveless numbers, but could make it work with a shirt/jacket. Oh, did I mention I hate my legs? Yeah, I still want it. Gimme.

    I also have already liked you on FB. (I LIKE YOU. I REALLY LIKE YOU).

    On a separate note, I am yelling a lot in these comments. Do I get extra points for exuberance?

    1. I was so proud of us when I saw your post. And then I was proud of myself for making a limerick. Even though it sucked.
      I REALLY LIKE YOU TOO.
      Extra points for any and all yelling.

  13. What if I dont like your Facebook page, but I love it instead? Is that ok??
    Um, anyway, I am super-obsessed with chambray right now because I can totally pass off my inner redneck as "trendy." What more could a girl want?

    1. I'm with you Heather. I consider denim a "neutral" and anything with cowboy boots "pulled together". :)

  14. I am actually going to a beach in March, so this would TOE-TALLY come in handy/sexy.

    BTW, I realized on the 90 minute drive home from work yesterday (don't get me started) that you are me/I am you.

    Every time I'm here, I'm all like "YES!!", and "AMEN SISTER", but I just can't get your fantastic/awesome level of snark out of my brain onto the little empty page on my own blog. (Which, in reality, doesn't exist... another small prob).

    Even now, with this damn comment (which WAS SO MUCH BETTER IN MY HEAD YESTERDAY) I'm a shadow of my former you.

    Anyway, you're a genius, and I love you/me (in a non stalky way).

    Go blue dress!

    1. I liked both your FB page as well as the GJ ON page. I'm a little worried about stalking now, but I have to believe the dress is worth it.

      Peace out.

    2. You should start a blog. The world needs more of us.
      Giveaways make stalking not only appropriate, but also necessary.

  15. Ooh, I also linked to this giveaway on my blog. Obsessed with that dress much!? ;-)

  17. I liked everything and shared everything and the brown jacket in look number Three I already own, so I really do need this dress. I even have boots that would work with it, however "The Voices told me to buy more shoes" so I will have to seek out the boots you show in the photo.

    1. I saw that jacket in the store, it is really adorable. The voices say that to me all the time too.

  18. I love the 2nd look aka Klassy Bitch look. I want to look like a French super model, eat a cookie in one bite and say "oui!"
    Now I'm following your blog, not just because of this epic giveaway, but because your posts make me smile and laugh out loud.
    I liked your facekbook page, left a comment, I liked Freda's Old Navy page, and I shared this post on twitter.
