SwimSpot Giveaway

Jun 18, 2012

Happy Monday Dolls!  Hope you all had a nice weekend celebrating Father’s Day!  Let me start by saying I don’t go giveaways often.  I don’t love reading blogs that just do a bunch of random giveaways.  I think long and hard when I am contacted about doing a giveaway and make sure it is something that I would be excited to win.  I know I just did a Stella and Dot giveaway two weeks ago but this one was too good to pass up.  I am offering one Lucky reader the chance to win a $50 giftcard to Swimspot

If you are not familiar with Swimspot they are an online Swim Boutique with Fit specialists to help you find the best and most flattering swim suit for your figure.   The webpage features videos of models in the bath suits walking so you can see every angle and detail.  They even offer a way to shop by your body type. pretty genius.   They carry so many lines but my two favorites they carry are Ella Moss and Splendid.  I like to buy a new swim suit each year and now is your chance to win $50 towards any swimsuit or cover-up you choose! 

Here are a few of my favorites I am eyeing.  I am a one piece and bikini kind of girl.  I like bikinis for skinny days and one pieces for bloated days.  Go visit SwimSpot.com and check out their amazing selection!


In order to win:

1) You must be a Follower of Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers

2) Visit the SwimSpot webpage and leave a comment letting me know which swimsuit you would buy if you won

3) Like Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers Facebook page

You have til midnight Thursday the 21st to enter.  I will announce the winner on Friday.  Good luck!
