A-Thread Giveaway!

Ladies, I have a really killer giveaway today!  You get to win not one, but two items from the fabulous online boutique,  A-Thread.    First up is this gorgeous silk stripped Blouse.
{Bold Stripe Silk Blouse}

I have the blouse and just adore it.  It is perfect to wear right now with shorts and it is going to look great in the fall with skinny jeans.  Camel + Royal Blue is a color combo made in heaven!

The second item you get to win is this Turquoise Drop Necklace.  Such a great statement necklace, even prettier in person.  Plus, Turquoise goes with everything!

You might remember me blogging about this Green Necklace a few weeks ago.   Well it is also from A-Thread and one of my favorite necklaces to date.   I wear it all the time.  A-Thread makes some gorgeous necklaces.  

The A-Thread site is filled with so many great things.  Added bonus is A-Thread donates 5% of your purchase to a charity of your choosing.   Right now the 4 charities they are working with are: LA Animal Services, Thirst Relief, Kiva, and Children of the Night.   Their motto is to “Shop and Effect”, which means you can look good while doing good!   Just to keep things in perspective a $5 donation to Thirst Relief will give someone clean water for 25 years.  So every little purchase helps!  

 All of their items are super affordable and cute!  A few of my other favorite items I am hoping to snag are:

{Turquoise and Gold Beaded Necklace}

{Cobalt Scalloped Shorts}

{Heavy Metal Necklace}

{Silk Color Block Dress}

{KeyHole Dress}

{Chambray Military Jacket}

Great giveaway right??  Two awesome items, over a $100 value! In order to enter (each counts as a separate entry):

1) You must be a follower of Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers

2) Visit the A-Thread website and tell me your favorite item

3) Like the A-Thread FB page

You have until Sunday at Midnight to enter and I will announce the winner Monday!  Good Luck!

    I am a follower of your blog, and I also liked A-thread on facebook. I loved almost everything I looked at, but I especially LOVED the Big Star Mid-rise skinny jeans, because I can still be "cool" enough to wear skinny jeans but with the added bonus of a MID RISE! I have way too much booty for low rise jeans so I love the fit of mid rise… combined with a skinny leg, I dont feel like I'm in "mom jeans".I also like the silk feather blouse! It would be cute with skinny jeans, leggings or even shorts!

  77. August 6, 2012 / 1:59 am
