PB&J Review and Giveaway

PB&J Boutique is a longtime supporter of Already Pretty, and I just adore their darling wares! They specialize in soft, comfy clothes with unusual and eye-catching details, like this adorable JWLA tunic that they sent along for me to review*


Since the tunic was a wee bit big, I cinched it in with my black leather harness. So worth it, though. Just check out that embroidery:



And I'm thrilled to announce that I'm giving away a $75 credit for regular priced PB&J merchandise! Here's how you enter to win:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.
     
  2. Visit the PB&J online boutique.

  3. Leave a comment on this post telling which item you'd buy with your $75, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.

  4. Like PB&J on Facebook. This step is required for entry.
     
  5. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, December 19. I'll draw a winner at random the following week. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck, everyone!

Hi Sally! I've just visited PBJ's site. I love their clothes! I'd get the Pickup Dress. Empire waists are flattering on everybody, and I love knits in neutrals that I can accessorize with colors.

Aw, it makes me a little sad that having a Facebook account is required for so many giveaways these days...what about those of us who prefer to stay at least slightly more off the grid? Oh well, I'm looking forward to seeing who wins it!

(Found your blog through Fashion For Nerds--like so many others, I've been quite enjoying your posts.)

SaraLynn said...

I would absolutely buy the tunic that you are wearing right now. It is perfection. I would probably also buy this sweater dress: http://www.pbj-shop.com/mystree-sweater-dress-p-251.html <3

Aah this website is fabulous.

I would put the $75 towards the Clement V-Neck Tee, because it is gorgeous.

Aibrean said...

I would probably get the Dolman Pull Over. http://www.pbj-shop.com/pink-lotus-dolman-pull-over-p-323.html

There are other prettier tunics, etc., but they are not in my size.

Marisa said...

I have to agree with Fig. And actually, unless Facebook has changed their rules in the last 6 months, you are not allowed to require "Liking" as part of a contest.

You might check on that.

Maria Palma said...

I really like the Mystree Smocking Detailed Dress!

I'm loving http://www.pbj-shop.com/johnny-was-scalloped-collar-top-p-393.html. Too cute!

I'm following on FB too but I don't like that option as I'm trying to get away from FB.

Love the contest (and your blog).

Almost 40 said...

Honestly, I'd put it towards the tunic you're wearing (Milky Boyfriend Tunic) - in fact as soon as I saw it on you, I went to check it out on their site! SO much cute!!!

Either that or the Delish shoes... because, well, they are that: DELISH!

Oh, it's too hard to decide! Right NOW I like the Ruffle Cardi the best, but in two minutes I might like the Merrow Tee or Delish shoe more!

pigtailgirl said...

I adore this tunic ... and can only sigh "if only it came in plus sizes..."

but it's adorable anyway!!!

Anemone said...

It was so hard to choose which I'd buy!

I'd probably pick up the Corsage Surplice Top. The detailing is gorgeous. I would also pick up the Carved Resin Rose Earrings (so classic and feminine).

As always, thanks for the giveaway, Sal!

I think I'd get a couple pairs of their earrings - although the clothes are way cute too. Thanks!

Lady Harriet said...

I love the Milky Boyfriend Tunic that they sent you, but I'm not sure if I could squeeze into the largest size. (Kind of a bummer that size 13 is an XL for them when the average woman's size in the US is supposed be a 14...) If that doesn't fit, I love the Black and White Floral Rain Boots too! I've been wanting some toile rain boots, and these are lovely!

lola5375 said...

I love the Biker Sweater Jacket.
Sooo cute!

Karen@Candid Diversions said...

Jessica said...

I have to say that I love all the embroidered items-- I'm a sucker for embroidery-- and I fell in love with the Milky Boyfriend tunic. I would use my $75 as a downpayment on that.

I would probably go for the JWLA blue spell dress. The embroidery is sooo amazing. But I have to bookmark the shop because they seem to have many comfy and cute dresses. My email address is lori(at)loritironpandit(dot)com. I liked on Facebook under the same name as the email address domain.

Audi said...

I think I'd go for the Quentina dress, or else the one you've got on here, Sal (if you didn't mind me copying you!). I love that they have a whole section for long sleeved dresses.

And the harness looks so great with this outfit! I love all the buckle action between the harness and the boots.

Laura said...

I love the Button Henley with the lace by Mystree - easy yet fancy. :) I also like the Grommet Hoodie & Pant by Pink Lots, since I'm a fan of both hardware and yoga.

Thanks for running the contest!

Now LIKE them on Facebook via my Hotsy Malone page.

I love so many of their items that it was hard to chose but my goal was to find something that I wouldn't have to pitch in too much more to get so I would go with the Blue Spell Dress and cover the difference. Love your tunic though, it is very cute.

sewsincere said...

Sorry, but I believe it to be a bit bogus that certain companies require people to put their name as a "like" on Facebook PRIOR to actually trying out the product. It seems like a false endorsement, because it is based on the possiblity of winning something. I don't participate in this kind of "giveaway" because of the strings attached. I am not expecting you will post this comment. I wanted to share a different point of view, because I think this type of giveaway demeans your blog. I enjoy your posts and have learned from them. Thank you.

I love the Grey Pocket Tank Top - there's only 2 left though, so if I won I may get it in white. ($17)

Then I'd pick ou the Pinstrip Bubble Tank Dress ($42)

For my last sixteen dollars, It'd be a difficult decision between the Peace Sign Racerback Tank ($15) and the Poppy & Bird Bracelet ($19)
