500 Follower GIVEAWAY

This past the weekend I hit (and, I'm delighted to say, exceeded) 500 blogger followers - yay! To make it doubly special, this is coincidentally also my 500th post. So to celebrate and thank you all I'm giving away this marvellous little collection of goodies.


What you'll get:
  • A genuine vintage Bakelite bangle - yes, really! - in semi translucent burgundy swirl.
  • A pair of Elegance stockings (size 9 1/2), with the most fabulous packaging artwork - it's worth framing!
  • A vintage 60s Cash's velvet "fashion bow" hair clip.
  • A vintage Mercedes-Benz silk scarf with a novelty paisley and cars print.


The only entry requirement is that you are a follower, either through google reader, bloglovin, my twitter or my facebook page. Simply leave a comment below, telling me what you enjoy seeing most on this blog and/or what you'd like to see more of. For an extra chance to win, blog, tweet or facebook share this post.


This giveaway is open to readers worldwide, so good luck all!

  1. Yeah, love giveaways! What I like the most from your blog is that you make us see vintage hairdos and outfits as "normal", wearable and easy- daily things...
    But concerning to topics you talk about, I love your hair posts!! (And I miss you wrote more on them...). Good luck everyone!

  7. Congratulations!!!! :) Wow... this is such a generous prize pack--thank you for sweetly offering these as celebration. I'm a GFC and FC follower, so whichever counts. ;)

    I know two things I really, really enjoy on your blog are your outfit posts and the tutorials you've posted in the past. I still love wearing my little umbrella pin and also redid my pin/brooch frame to the padded sort that you detailed making a bit ago. :)

    Here's to 500+ more followers! ;)

  9. I'm a follower. I would like to see more of how to make modern clothes look vintage. I used to wear vintage before I had my son. But now I seem to be stuck in baby weight purgatory (9 years later). I don't want to buy vintage to fit my size now, when I really still want to lose the weight.

    I think the two things I love best are your outfit posts and your informative 'lessons' on vintage fashion items. You pull together such detailed information and resources, it's like taking a mini history class. I love each and every one!

    Just "liked" you on FB.

  32. Congratulations on your follower milestone!

    I love your fashion history posts as well as tutorials. I have the sailor collar tutorial bookmarked to do when I have a free evening. It should go perfectly with a blouse I just thrifted.

    And also your outfit posts, since you have great style.

    I'm obviously already a follower of your blog, but also on Twitter!

  34. I'm a google follower. I love seeing your styling, it's inspirational and I'd like to see more of it. It's helped me get my sewing mojo back; and although the time period I want to make stuff in also includes the Victorian era, I love the styles you wear too. I think I might end up with a rather eclectic mix

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your tutorials! You make recreating vintage looks very easy, and I really appreciate that! : )
