IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel Gift Card Giveaway



I'll just come right out and say it: IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel is my favorite plus-sized line of clothing. Seriously. I'd been a fan of this brand for about three years based solely on their gorgeous designs done in sumptuous colors, but when I finally got a chance to see the garments up close and in action at an event last year, the deal was sealed.


The fabrics are quality, heavy, and marvelous to touch, everything drapes gorgeously, and the garments are insanely flattering. I love this line, my friends. Just look at these glorious garments!


Their offerings are limited to dresses, dressy separates, and some formal attire, so not a full-service, all-lifestyle line. But the pieces are beautifully made, extremely high quality, dress up or down in a snap, and most go up to size 32 US.



I'm thrilled to have a $50 IGIGI gift card to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Visit IGIGI to check out the gorgeous designs.
  2. Follow IGIGI on Twitter, like IGIGI on Facebook, or sign up for their e-newsletter (click "E-mail Sign Up" at top right). You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us which piece you'd order if you won the gift card, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  4. Cross your fingers!
  5. Note: This giveaway is open internationally.

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, December 4, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to all, including international readers.

Good luck!

Lucy Workout Gear Review and Giveaway


What? You don't stand in your dining room to lift weights? Totally normal.

I've been a convert to Lucy workout gear for several years now, so when the company offered to collaborate on a review and giveaway, I responded with a resounding, "YES!"

I was sent the top and pants you see above,* both of which are comfy, breathable and fabulous. The pants have a marvelously high rise and have become my workout pants of choice. I take a 10 or 12 in most pants, and these size large ones fit snugly. I have a 30" - 31" inseam and need the short pant length for sure!

The top hasn't gotten much use yet since it's quite cold here in MN, but I love the design. Doesn't look like this particular print is for sale on the site, but here's the style.


This x-back tank has a built-in, padded bra - perfect for my in-a-constant-state-of-nipping-out B-cups, but perhaps not ideal for women who need more support. This is a size medium and fits me beautifully. I'll probably sneak this lovely into some non-workout outfits, too. Such a cute print.

I'm excited to offer one lucky Already Pretty reader the Lucy top of her choice for $50 or less! Here's what you've got to do to enter:

  1. Be a U.S. resident.
  2. Visit the Lucy website to learn more about their products.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us which top you'd love to win, 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, November 27, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

EILEEN FISHER Review and Giveaway


I've been an EILEEN FISHER fan for a looooooong time, but my adoration for this company was cemented when I had the chance to visit their showroom back in February to preview the Fall 2011 line. Seeing the designs, discussing their inspirations, and handling the gorgeous textiles further convinced me that Eileen Fisher garments are worthwhile investment pieces. In fact, the collection made such an impression on me that I stalked and bought this coat, and the company was generous enough to send me this lovely Cable Infinity Wrap.*



The wrap is made from a soft, plush mohair/nylon blend and has lots of give to it. It is INCREDIBLY warm, and made even short-sleeved ensembles wearable in nippy fall temperatures. As you can see, I've styled the wrap as a capelet - a look I completely love - but it can also be worn draped, as an infinity scarf. This accessory would be a great item to add flair and sophistication to any wardrobe.

I'm delighted to have a second Cable Infinity Wrap in this same color 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. Visit the EILEEN FISHER website to check out their gorgeous designs.
  3. Follow EILEEN FISHER on Twitter or like EILEEN FISHER on Facebook. You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  4. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style the wrap if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  5. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 20, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!
