Social Dress Shop Giveaway!!

Nov 27, 2012

I have a majorly fabulous giveaway today for all my lovely readers!
One my sister’s sweet friends in Charlotte, Sarah,  just launched an amazing online shop called Social Dress Shop. and she is giving away a $150 gift card to use towards a dress of your choice for one of my readers!!

 Sarah’s idea for her site is pretty genius, she only sales dresses and she handpicks some of the best ones around.  That way you don’t have to weed through all sorts of other items when all you are looking for is the perfect dress. With the holidays upon us I am sure we all would love a new dress to rock for all the upcoming holiday parties.

 Some of the designers featured on Social Dress Shop include:  Heidi Merrick, Rory Becca, Dolce Vita, 81 Poppies, Erin Fetherston,  and Madison Marcus.   I want almost every dress on her site, seriously they all are beyond gorgeous.   Best part is Social Dress Shop offers FREE 2-3 day shipping so you will always get your dress super fast whenever you place an order!

 Here a few of my current favorites.  Pretty sure one (or all) of these needs to be mine.

In addition to the contest,  Sarah has also graciously offered my readers 15% off any dress on her site with code PARTYPRETTY.   The 15% off discount will run til next Monday when the contest ends.  Go and buy that perfect cocktail dress with the help of a sweet discount!
I know you are all dying to win the $150 gift card (I wish I could enter for real) so here are the details.
  The contest will run til Sunday December 2 at midnight and I will announce the winner Monday morning December 3rd.  There are several ways to enter and each one counts a separate entry so make sure you leave a separate comment for each one!


Below are the links to follow for the contest:)
