Today, March 13th, we are Giving Away... (PRIZE CLAIMED)


A Personalized Fashion Look Book
from Cardigan Empire

Have you ever wondered what type of swimsuit would look best on your body? Or if those pants you bought back in 2003 are still in style? What about whether or not a certain color makes you “pop”? If so, The Fashion Look Book is here to help.
It will advise YOU on YOU.
And you will be forever grateful.

Personal Fashion Consultant Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire is the genius behind the Fashion Look Book. After consulting with Reachel, she will create a Fashion Look Book just for YOU. It will tell you your body type. Which could be:


Or:

Or Perhaps you have:

After revealing your body type, Reachel will then tell you the colors that will look best on you, how to successfully clean out your closet, how to buy a better wardrobe for less, and more.

I received my Fashion Look Book last week and I love it! In order to create my Fashion Look Book, Reachel and I corresponded by email. She asked me questions about my lifestyle and I sent her a couple of pictures of me, my body measurements, and my coloring. In return, Reachel sent me my Fashion Look Book, which tells me the key pieces I should have in my wardrobe. It also suggests shopping hints for purchasing new items, such as jeans, swimming suits, and even the type of brassier that would work best for me. My Fashion Look Book also reminds me to “Make sure no one could mistake you for going to bed or the gym unless that’s where you’re headed.” It includes such great advice, which in the end, means I will buy less because I am buying well.

To read more of Reachel’s smart fashion tips, visit Cardigan Empire here.

So, my advice to you today? Purchase a Fashion Look Book. And when it arrives, sit in a comfy chair, relax, and discover things you never knew about your body, your clothing, your coloring, yourself.

Each person can enter to win the Fashion Look Book up to THREE times today.

For one entry leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry visit Cardigan Empire’s website here. Read more about the Fashion Look Book. Then come back to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and why you would like your very own Fashion Look Book.
Example: Jane Doe: I have had four children, therefore my body has changed quite a bit in the past decade. It's good to know what will look good on my body now. Reachel also included how many trendy pieces a person my age should wear with each ensemble. This is helpful because I want to look stylish, but not like I'm trying to be a teenager.

For a third entry, because Reachel Bagley is here to help us discover clothing which will allow us to feel more confident, happy, and stylish, let’s take a second to recognize and share some of our fashion mistakes. In a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and describe one of your worst hairstyles or one of your most hideous outfits from the past (one that if you happen upon a picture of it, you cringe or laugh till you cry).
Example: Jane Doe: I had a mullet in 5th grade. And yes, I am a female.
OR
For a third entry in a NEW comment box tell us your first and last name and one of your favorite articles of clothing that you currently own.
Example: Jane Doe: A grey wool coat that my parents bought me for Christmas this year.

The winner of the Fashion Look Book from Cardigan Empire will be announced Monday, March 16th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to check out our new giveaway for the day.

P.S. One of my favorite things about my Fashion Look Book is Reachel’s “Life Tips” for me. Such wise advice. So as we head into the weekend, for your reading pleasure, and perhaps consideration: “Find a way to make everyday special. Don’t save beauty for a distant occasion. Wear a lacy bra, dab on some perfume, use stemware at dinner. Don’t worry if something gets worn out, used up, or broken. It would be a greater tragedy for it to get dusty or forgotten.”

I would like a fashion look book because unfortunately I have succumbed to jeans and a t-shirt everyday which gets very boring, but it's easy with my 3 kids at home. Besides it would be fun to learn more about myself!

I would love a look book because I find myself wearing the basic "uniform." I am a stay at home mom...so money is tight and time is short. Shopping can get crazy with 3 kids (under 6) and clothes that don't fit...well I think you get it. BUT how wonderful it would be to KNOW how to shop for the right items.

Okay, my fav. item right now is a purple shirt given to me by my BFF. It didn't fit her so she gave it to me. I love it. I find my self soaking in its' sweet fibers. It has a v-neck and gathers at the bottom of the V. (perfect to me b/c I think it hides a little bit of the "mum-tum.") Anyways, I wear it everywhere. My mom actually calls it part of my uniform. So I know I wear it alot...but man...finding the right clothes is tough. So wear what works...right?

I would love a fashion look book because I'm caught in the depressing midwestern mom look. When I moved from Florida, none of my clothes were "right" (or warm enough) and I was a new parent, and that combination has been fatal to my fashionable self.

Ashley Davidson said...

Ashley Davidson: In 5th grade my mom cut all of my hair to about two inches. I looked like one of the boys in my class so he shaved the sides of his hair. I really pretty much did have a mullet and I am a girl.

Heather Doman - bleach splattered mauve-dyed jeans in high school - in my defense, it WAS 1987!

Alisha Lemmons: I would like to know which kind of top is best to wear. The shape and neck line to flatter my figure.

Lizzy Clarke: Back in my middle school days I used to wear my hair really big with a "Wake Me Up Before You Go-GO" shirt, parachute pants (with a fafillion zippers on them) and vans checkboard shoes (in pink of course). Oh for the love of fashion, I needed help back then almost as much as I do now! :-D

Lemmons Family said...

Alisha Lemmons: My worst hairstyle was in the 80's. I would slick my hair back in a pony tail with a ton of hairspray and had my bangs fan straight up and out. It was awful.
