59 - And the winner is...

Dress - Free People (Pictures do not do it justice! It's embroidered and awesome, and probably better when it's not wrinkly and covered in my shedding hair...), Tie-dyed Sunglasses - Santee Alley, Tie-Bleached Jacket - DIY, Biker Shorts - DIY cut-off leggings, Boots - eBay, Jewelry - Konstantino + Flea Market, Bag - Vintage

I am so pleased with how well our give-away went! I only wish we had 211 kimonos to give away for each and every entry. Unfortunately, we just had one, and the number that random.org popped out at me was 154.


Great. So, uh, what do I do with that now? I went through the comments, from first to last, counting each one, until I reached the 154th comment. My thought process was that if I had reached a person who had commented previously (some people had two-parter entries, like "oh no I forgot!), then I would just go back one, you know, to keep it fair, so that each person only had one entry or whatever.

Imagine my delight to find that my 154th comment was from Kat, who was one of my very first blog-followers, and who has always made charming commentary and conversation on my posts! I was so pleased, in fact, that I made myself go back and do a recount, twice, just to be sure I wasn't tricking myself. Sure enough, Kat came up the winner each time! Were I inclined to think things could be serendipitous, I might refer to this situation as just that.

Congratulations Kat! I will be emailing you now so that I can ship this bad boy out to you for your sauntering-about-town pleasure.

To everyone else, I promise that I will be on the lookout for more totally rad giveaways in the future!

  14. --Fffff, in my excite I completely spaced on your look. (Even though I forced myself to look through it before scrolling to your blurb below it. Granted, I just woke up about a half an hour ago.)

    Those sunglasses are so adorable, but not as adorable as you in that dress! Especially with those boots. I'm so envious of your warm weather out there in the west. ♥

  19. I'm totally in love with that Free People dress. It looks very pretty already, I can't imagine how beautiful it looks like in real life. And those floral shades are so darling.

  20. Oh wow I totally have that dress. Only it's more of a very short tunic on giant ol' me. You look like a pretty pretty princess, and I need those sunglasses so I can wear them with a clashing floral print.
