Our World Boutique {Giveaway} – CLOSED

We always talk about how fun it would be to travel, but in actuality, it scares me to death!  I keep picturing getting mugged, lost, and stranded within miles of anyone who can speak my language. Surely I will build up the courage to let go of my fears and do something fun and risky, but until then, I’m happy to watch movies of exotic places and pretend I visit a new country every weekend movie night.  I am still in love with the IDEA of worldwide travel and adventures, and I am definitely in love with Our World Boutique, a shop full of travel-inspired fashion from all around the world!

If you take a moment to browse around, you’ll see all sorts of gorgeous tops, dresses, accessories and jewelry with inspirations from all over.  Every style and fashion had to come from somewhere, and this shop does a great job of bringing in old, new, and timeless fashions and styles.

Everything is priced SO reasonably.  There are dresses being sold for $14.99, tops for $12.99, and jewelry that starts at $1.99!  In preparation for the nippy weather on our heels, I chose to dive into the scarf dept. and these are what we picked out:

Its just the season for it, huh!  Is not everyone raving about how fun it is to break out their Fall fashion wardrobe?!

2My sister in law and I wore our scarves downtown one weekend.  You can see how the colorful scarves are great as summer scarves and for layering, and this white Pashima scarf is fantastic with winter coats and trenches.

Now everything in this shop is quick to come and go.  If you see something you love, snatch it!  Case in point: by the time I received these cute scarves, took pictures, and posted this giveaway, their entire stock of THOUSANDS of scarves was sold and gone!  So instead of offering a winner a scarf of their choice,

FRAAS Scarves for Fall! {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Crunchy leaves.  Hot chocolate.  Boots.  Warm socks.  Sweaters.  Yes, yes, yes!  You readers who live in warm climates may never have to scrape your car, shovel your driveway, or worry about your hair freezing on your walk to school, but you also don’t get to experience on a daily basis the glory of wrapping your neck up in something glorious!  Yes, I’m talking about SCARVES, some of the cutest accessories ever!

FRAAS has a new collection of scarves, designed for this upcoming Fall season.  This scarf is Style #060607, and it comes in the four colors below (petrol, dark red, purple, and black).  You’ll notice that they are reversible!

I was sent this scarf (Style #060607) in dark red, and wore it out this weekend when we saw the Boston Ballet perform on Boston Commons!  I love this red color for Fall!  I think the colors in contains allow it to match well with denim and especially khaki clothing, much like my jacket.

What I love about my scarf is how heavy it is and how it doesn’t wrinkle.  The weight accounts for intricate stitching that doesn’t allow cold winds to pass through it, keeping your neck nice and toasty.  This guy is extremely soft, probably because it contains a mix of viscose and acrylic.

Beautiful, and just a little funky :).  The dimensions on this scarf are 14″ x 72″, and it is sold for $40.  FRAAS products are sold worldwide in department and specialty stores, as well as online, specifically fraas.com and amazon.com

Krafty Chix {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

So, you remember I told you about my style dilemma a couple of weeks ago?  Well, let’s face it, more like my lack-of-style dilemma?  I think that I’ve figured out the skinny jeans and flats look, but now it’s just too cold outside here on the East Coast; now I’m on to skinny jeans and boots!  I love how warm my feet and toes are in boots, but I don’t like the bulky feel of wearing boot socks with my boots.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Krafty Chix makes boot cuffs, which gives me the look of socks in my thicker boots without the bulky feeling.  I LOVE it, and I LOVE the splash of color that pulls together my outfits!

Does that picture look familiar?  You can find a link to Krafty Chix on the right-hand side of the main page every time you come to Dandy Giveaway — it’s an easy way to find a variety of great accessories.   And, more importantly for this time of year, these would make great stocking stuffers or gifts for all ages!
