$100 Shopbop & Diane Von Furstenberg Giveaway

Mr. Diabolina and I are officially ELDERLY.
Exhibit A: We are all about driving vacations lately.

fashion blog 2226

Last month, we flew out to Montreal, then drove up to Quebec City for a day trip.

fashion blog 2229

Absolutely loved it. The old walled city is like a little slice of Europe without the expense of leaving North America.  So charming and picturesque and all the turrets!!! I'm a sucker for turrets. I think it's an English major/princess thing ;)

Highly recommend Quebec if you are looking for a little old world romance.

DON'T recommend that you dress old world though.

My designer of choice when I travel? Diane Von Furstenberg

fashion blog 2249

DVF dresses, DVF blouses & tops, DVF clutches---I pack them all on trips.

The prints always make you look fabulous, feminine and pulled together. The shapes are comfortable and the materials aren't restrictive---they move with you as you get your nerdy tourist on :)

This Shopbop sale is one way to get your DVF on. But since I love anyone who is still reading my very sporadic posts, I'm giving away a $100 giftcard!!! 


Before August 29, leave a comment below with your email address and/or Twitter handle so I can reach you if you win. Let me know what types of blog posts you like the most or fashion questions you have so I can focus on those in upcoming weeks. Good luck and big kisses!

Shopbop giveaways are the best!
I've always loved your outfit posts of course, but your vlogs, like the closet tour were great - maybe you could do more of those? :)

Caitlin said...

I miss the style client posts that you used to do! I guess those are more work for you, and you need willing volunteers, but I really liked seeing your recs.


Rachee said...

Lurve that dress on you!

I would like more posts in general =P, but yes, ditto Katie with Vlogs, <3 those.

Please tell your mamacita to get on Twitter,asap! Her followers await :)

Ro said...

I heart all your posts, mama, but I do love seeing what you wear when traveling. Such a great mix of practical and stylish. And because I get to see your travels, while I am not doing any such traveling.

Dianne, I love your DvF - I'm a major fan myself. I bought my first circa 2000, & I'm steadily amassing a fine collection. Perfect for travel & great in photos!

emily said...

You + Mr. D are too cute. Hope all's well with you two :) My favorite posts are your outfit ones... and anything including your mom. Always great to see the "inspiration" portion and where you're drawing style from.

silysilvi said...

I think I have been reading since you started you blog. I have always loved your outfits post and really enjoy mommy posts too.

My ColourFul Thoughts said...

OMG thanks for posting the Quebec City pictures. I grew up there as a child and it brought back so many awesome memories! I would love to know how (and if) you travel as a fashionista minimalist. I travel a lot and always want to look SUPER fashionable but I dislike using big suitcases. Any tips on how to travel light while maintaining a great style? I'm still struggling with this one. Keep writing, love the down to earth and personable posts! Oh, and the cool pics. Thanks!

Wow! Your trip looked great! I love when you post about what you wore. They are inspirational in my outfit choices and shopping. Btw, your tweets are the funniest ever.

Jillian said...

I love your outfit posts, especially when they include your inspiration photos!

MargoSLaw said...

Love your posts when you show us "what you wore" inspired by the fashion mags. love the inspiration! Keep it coming :)

Thank you for a great giveaway! I've had my eye on some jeans on Shopbop for a while that are on sale, so fingers crossed. ;)

For fashion questions: I'd love to know how to wear ankle boots, I have a pair but I never know what to wear them with. Also it'd be cool to see a post about different body shape and what kinds of jackets are most flattering.

he he, what a great way to see who exactly is following you - since there are so many of us lurkers :)
anyways, i adore your ootd posts and especially where you elaborate why you chose those pieces, where you bought them and why, how you chose your accessories etc. it's the best way to get inspired.
oh and i love when you present a new trend and give ideas how to wear it (like maxi skirts and dresses).
thx for the giveaway!

My favorites are your posts with your mom and your vacation/travel clothes posts!

How do you find good sales online without having your inbox explode with the ten thousand sale site emails they send out all the time. I unsubscribe to everything and then realize I will never find those perfect shoes on sale and re-subscribe again!

Katie said...

All posts! YEah! Mostly pics!~

havovi said...

I still love your sporadic posts! Always so fresh and lovely :) Happy Sunday from Melbourne, Australia! xx
