Eve Gravel Dress Giveaway

A while back a Montréal based designer named Eve Gravel contacted me and a few other bloggers to see if we would be interested in helping introduce her clothing line to the states. She's no stranger to the business as her label has been around in Montréal for 16 years, but for this fall season, she decided it was time to spread her creations to the south.

To make sure the collection was something we'd even be interested in, she sent over her fall lookbook for us to browse through. Of course it was filled with the prettiest dresses, skirts, and jackets made of the most beautiful fabrics and textures, all with charming details that I couldn't help but adore. We were able to pick out our top five favorite pieces and from there the Eve Gravel team narrowed it down to just one. I wasn't able to get my favorite piece, but they did their very best and sent over one of my other favorites, the Edgy Kate dress.

I'll admit, when I first saw the collection I was thinking, "Oh no. Leopard and black. Can I do leopard and black?", but the more and more I scrolled through the looks, the more and more I began to love it. Despite the fact that the pieces seemed a bit more edgy than my typical style, the silhouettes and textures seemed so very feminine. To be honest, it's not that I don't like urban looks, it's that the shapes don't usually work on my curvy body. This girls' got too much ass for skin tight booty shorts and body con dresses–which is why I love free flowing vintage dresses–but finally there's a collection that meshes the edgy aesthetic with a more girlie style. The whole time I was wearing the dress I kept thinking, "oh my gosh, Allison Mosshart would TOTALLY approve of this look"–um, yeah, so that girl crush is still going strong! 

I suppose the best news out of this whole Eve Gravel collaboration–for you guys, at least–is that each one of the five bloggers participating will be giving away their special Eve Gravel piece on their blogs. That's right. Five Eve Gravel pieces are up in the air, and I seriously think I might cry once I have to ship this dress off! The fabric is soft and sheer and the sleeves have just a bit of puff in them to help hold their shape. There's ruffles, there's lining, and it honestly is just about the best piece in my closet right now.

To enter, all you have to do is visit the Eve Gravel website and share your favorite piece from the collection. Make sure to leave your email address so I can get a hold of you and to increase your chances of winning at least one thing from the Eve Gravel line, be sure to check out Lulu Letty, Selective Potential, Sally Jane Vintage, and Liebemarlene throughout the week as they will be giving away their selected pieces too. Good luck!

The "le diable au corps" dress is ahmazing!

Starr, these dresses are beautiful! I think my favorite dress is the Grammy dress or actually maybe it's the one you're giving away? I also just did buy 5 inch platform leopard print (cheetah print?) heels, so I shouldn't talk. But I will talk about how fine your ass and hips are... but maybe I should just enter this giveaway and not embarrass you with my woman love.

xo,
Jenny

You, my dear look stunning! I don't think I could rock the leopard like you have here. I like the peaches dress from Evel's fall look book. Cute.

Lovely Starr. I adore the dress and you totally rocked the leopard print!

Morgan and Lua said...

I was also really surprised when I saw you in this look! I never considered adding an animal print to my closet, even though they're 'in' right now, but this dress really works on you. I think even though it's not your typical look, it completely fits in with your aesthetic. And I love the hat with it.

My favorites:
Erin Dress
Charlotte G. Dress

I can't wait to see what the other girls chose! You girls get to do so many fun things!!

i fell in love with this entire collection upon first seeing it on Tieka's blog (my affinity for all things black and sparkly knows no bounds) and as soon as i saw the pocketed iva dress, i knew i could never love another as much ... just the perfect lbd.

Amy said...

Aaah you can totally do leopard and black! That dress is totally stunning, it looks so floaty and light. Body con skirts are all the rage at my school since they started an 'office wear' dress code, but I haven't yet succumbed!Something tells me this dress would be a little too edgy and might give the headmistress a heart attack!
The Bee Top from Eve Gravel is the item making me sigh and swoon right now, mmmm bees :D

Julie said...

My fave is the Stendhal dress..so unique and awesome for fall!

Dip-tea said...

Wow! Love the dress! :)
