$100 CakeStyle Giveaway



Shopping can be so stressful. It takes time and energy which, for many of us, are in short supply. Enter CakeStyle, a personal styling service for busy women that delivers a box of handpicked clothing and accessories to your door each season. Their expert stylists select pieces from brands like Elie Tahari, Diane von Furstenberg, and Theory based on your fit and wardrobe needs. They send your box to your door, you keep what you love, and send back the rest. Shipping both ways and stylists' services are free!



This giveaway is a little different than most, so please take note of the following:

  • We'll be giving away a $100 credit to be applied toward a CakeStyle purchase. Please take a look a the site's pricing overview to see what you're likely to spend on a season's pickings. You'll definitely need to chip in a bit on your own!
  • You'll have to use your credit card to set up your account. A $1,000 charge will be put on your card for a few seconds, but is immediately removed. It doesn't impact your credit score. It's simply a way for CakeStyle to protect themselves when sending out products.

Got it? Wanna nab that $100 credit? Great! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident
  2. Visit CakeStyle to explore the service, offered brands, and gorgeous sample looks!
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us why you'd love to give CakeStyle a try, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified. (Best policy: note your e-mail like this: sally [at] alreadypretty [dot] com)
  4. Cross your fingers!
Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, December 2, 2012. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!

Fall Focus with Pinterest and Rivet & Sway



Although I don't wear specs myself, I'm thrilled to be presenting this week's giveaway with designer eyewear company, Rivet & Sway. And here's why:

Rivet & Sway is a boutique online eyewear company exclusively for women. They employ a stylist whose role is to help women choose the perfect frame for their face shape, coloring, and personal style. Since picking a pair of frames can be a tricky proposition - especially via an online vendor - this company has figured out a way to make the experience customizable and personal. Love that!

Rivet & Sway wants to give away a pair of frames and lenses to one lucky Already Pretty reader, including a session with their stylist! We're hoping to unleash your creativity in this contest, so we're utilizing Pinterest, my personal favorite web time-waster. Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident
  2. Follow Rivet & Sway and Already Pretty on Pinterest.
  3. Pin a frame from rivetandsway.com.
  4. Create a pinboard around the frame and call it "Fall Focus." Create a look, tell a story, create a mood! Peek at Rivet & Sway's board as an example.
  5. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your board  and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified. (Best policy: note your e-mail like this: sally [at] alreadypretty [dot] com)
  6. Enter by midnight CST on Monday, November 19, 2012.

One winner will be chosen for the most detailed and creative board so have fun with it!

Contest details:
  • Open to U.S. residents only. 
  • One winner will receive their choice of one Rivet & Sway frame, including ultra-thin prescription lenses and anti-scratch and glare-free coatings. 
  • Prize must be redeemed by 12/31/12. 
  •  Note that Rivet & Sway currently offers only single vision lenses; they cannot fulfill "progressives" or bifocals at this time

Be sure to enter by midnight CST on Monday, November 19, 2012. Good luck!

ECCO Sculptured 65 Collection Review and Giveaway




ECCO is one of those companies that I've known by reputation for years, but never tried for myself. So when the company contacted me about a collaboration, I was thrilled. They've recently released a new line called Sculptured 65, which includes five heeled styles designed for comfort and sleek beauty. I was sent the Sculptured 65 Tall Boot to review and keep.*



If you, too, are aware of ECCO's reputation, you likely know that the company prides itself on crafting comfortable, walkable, supportive shoes. And these boots deliver in a big way. The first time I wore them, I was on my feet for three straight hours while working with a client, and they were fantastic the whole time. I've worn them on long walks, too, and they've never once given me a twinge. They are, hands down, my most comfortable heeled boots.

I'm delighted to have a free pair of shoes from the ECCO Sculptured 65 Collection to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader. The winner will get to select her favorite style from the ECCO site! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident
  2. Visit ECCO.com and peruse the Fall offerings.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us which style of Sculptured 65 shoes you'd select if you won (the handbag style is not available as a prize), and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified. (Best policy: note your e-mail like this: sally [at] alreadypretty [dot] com)
  4. Cross your fingers!
Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 11, 2012. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!
