My Thrift Style and..... a GIVEAWAY!! (CLOSED)

I am head to toe thrifted today... dress, cardi and shoes! I love that.
This little dress has been a star in my outfit rotation all spring and summer and now I'm wearing it into the fall as well. For the fall and winter, as the temperature drops, I will add tights and my leather jacket. There is no tag on this dress telling me who made it or what fabric it is. That happens from time to time with thrifted clothing, the previous owner removes itchy tags... which is fine by me.
My cardigan is JCrew. This cardigan is simple and goes with everything! 
My shoes, from Old Navy were a gift from my favorite sister... and she thrifted them!  Perfect.
This may be a pretty standard but cute outfit, however with a price tag of under ten dollars...for just got a whole lot cuter.

To celebrate finishing my stash busting challenge, I wanted to share my stash with you! So now for my very first giveaway!! Wahoo!
As I was digging through my stash, I came across this piece of fabric that you might remember from the MMM challenge. Well, I still have a 2meter piece that I would love to give to one of my readers!

 So if you would like to be put into the draw for this fabric, it's easy.... just leave a comment, with your name, below. Remember that anonymous is not your name...
 One entry per person please because I am doing this draw the old fashioned way... you know...your names in a hat worries... I'll pick a nice hat. 

Anywhoo... check back on Wednesday, September 11 to congratulate the winner!
Good luck! 

UPDATE: This draw is open internationally and I failed to make that clear...opps sorry. Anyone is welcome to enter!


  1. ooo! Yes please! I loved that fabric when I first saw it. Thanks for the opportunity to make something from it.

  2. I love the dress and if you can get something thats thrifted, all the better.
    It strikes me as strange that there are no tags in it. I have taken home sewn garments to the thrift store only to be turned away because there were no tags. I wonder how they knew what size it was...
    I love that fabric, and I love the dress that you made. Please put my name in the hat for next week!

  3. Another great economical outfit! :) You have "an eye" for finding clothes that suit you so well. And I love those shoes! What a special sister.
