Dr. Scholl's Shoes Review and Giveaway




I've worn my pair of yellow Dr. Scholl's sandals many, many, many, many times and I just ADORE them, So when the good folks at Dr. Scholl's Shoes contacted me about a review and giveaway, I jumped at the chance!


I was sent these Ali Booties in Malt Taupe to try out.* And I was delighted to find that they're just as comfortable, cute, and walkable as my other pair of Dr. Scholl's Shoes. That little heel is sturdy but chic, and the footbed is marvelously flexible. These little guys have got a sweater cuff at the opening, but I found that a pair of ankle socks peeking out the top looked just adorable. I'm also eager to try them with knee socks and tights, once it gets colder.

I'm delighted to have another pair of Ali Booties in the color of your choice to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader!** Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style these booties, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  3. Cross your fingers!
Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 6, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Voet Leg Bandeaux Review and Giveaway



A wonderful reader pointed me toward Voet Leg Bandeaux ages ago, but I'm ashamed to admit that I can't find that correspondence. If it was you, dear reader, sing out! I'm so grateful for the tip! I now have a set of all three colors in my possession* and am absolutely enamored of them.


This ingenious product allows you to create layered legwear looks without having to pile on bonus pairs of socks. The bandeaux are loops of lace that you slip onto your calves and arrange so that they peek out of your boot tops. Here, I'm wearing mine with bare legs, but they look fantastic layered over opaque tights, too.

My feet get hot and sweaty in most nylon socks, but I adore how they look. These leg bandeaux allow me to wear my favorite cotton ankle socks, but look like I'm wearing something far fancier. Love it. These little lovelies come in three sizes, and fit calves from about 12" to 16.5".

I've got a second set of leg bandeaux in white, nude, and black to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Follow Voet Hosiery on Twitter or like Voet Hosiery on Facebook. You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  2. Take a look at the leg bandeaux page and make sure they've got a size that will fit you.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style one of your pairs if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  4. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, October 23, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers. Good luck!

Silvercocoon Jewelry Review and Giveaway



I've been ogling Silvercocoon jewelry in local boutiques and galleries for AGES, so when a friend put me in touch with designer Tia, I was over the moon! We chatted about her gorgeous line and I had to keep myself from begging her to send me one of everything ... and eventually we landed on her POD earrings as an ideal piece for a review and giveaway.


I'm a lifelong devotee of hoop earrings, but with my new haircut certain hoop styles stick out strangely from my lobes. These cleverly-designed hoops, however, work beautifully with my face shape and are just as elegant and eye-catching as they can be.


The POD earrings come in several materials and finishes, including the red acrylic shown above and this maple wood, and all are incredibly lightweight and delightfully swingy.


If you're like me and just love great hoops, I think you'll find these to be perfect everyday earrings. I was sent the POD earrings in matte red, wood, and translucent to try and keep*, and have an identical second set  to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Follow Silvercocoon on Twitter, like Silvercocoon on Facebook, or sign up for the Silvercocoon e-newsletter. You MUST do one of these three to enter.
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style one of your pairs if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  3. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, October 16, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers. Good luck!

A.W.E. Jewelry Review and Giveaway



Currently, I'm in a period that I've dubbed "earring transition." With my new haircut, many of my old standbys now look bizarre, and pairs I haven't worn in ages are starting to come into rotation. I'm also on the lookout for potential new pairs, so when Deb from A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry dropped a note to see if we could collaborate, I was thrilled!

I was sent these Scroll Post Earrings in copper to review and keep*:



I am trying to expand my metallic horizons beyond silver, and these lovely copper earrings are a marvelous bridging piece. They're sturdy but lightweight, beautifully designed, and, as you can see graceful and unique when worn. I'm in love!

A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry has been kind enough to supply another pair of Scroll Post Earrings for me to give away! And the winner can pick her favorite style and metal. Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Visit A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry to check out the gorgeous designs.
  2. Follow A.W.E. Jewelry on Twitter, like A.W.E. Jewelry on Facebook, follow the A.W.E. blog, or sign up for their e-newsletter (sign up in the left rail). You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us if you like scroll style one, scroll style two, or scroll style one in sterling silver, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
