Designer Apparel House of Harlow Ring Giveaway

When I was away at Bonnaroo, I got an email from Nancy over at DesignerApparel.com. about hosting a giveaway with an item from her site. To be honest, I didn't know anything about the Designer Apparel website, but I was interested in learning about it and seeing what they had to offer you guys. Since the site is so big, I couldn't really tackle it while I was on vacation, so Nancy was kind enough to suggest a couple of items for the giveaway. There I was under a shade tent in the Bonnaroo sun (using precious battery) trying to load the photos of these items! When I opened the photo of the House of Harlow 1960 Peacock Ring, I really didn't care about going any further. I knew I had the giveaway item of my dreams, and that was all I needed to see. Someone win it for me!!

I kid. But seriously, what girl wouldn't want a giant peacock statement ring!?

So before I went ahead with the giveaway, I really wanted to explore their site and make sure it was something I could see myself using. It's basically just a search engine that's helps you find all the good stuff online, but what I really liked about it was that it wasn't just to places like Neiman Marcus and Saks. I mean, duh, who doesn't love Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Hugo Boss, but that's not necessarily in all of our price ranges. The fact that they connect to places like Endless.com and Zappos allowed me to find some really cute stuff at affordable prices. The good part is they do have special members only sales that you can customize to your liking so that you can eventually get your hands on those more expensive items.

The site is also good for making wishlists. My initial intention was to make one outfit containing only pieces I found through their search engine, but there was so much good stuff I got a little carried away. 5 oufits...yikes!! So yeah, the site is fun for the dreamer too.

To enter all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment telling me how you subscribe! For an additional entry just follow me on twitter. Big thanks for DesignerApparel.com. for giving someone a chance to win such a cool product.


Congratulations
Laura from Buttons and Ribbons, you are the Pretty Sunday giveaway winner!
