Great giveaway for my American friends

Would you like to win this "Angelina" dress by Mink Pink, courtesy of Of course you would! And if you read this blog, and you're based in America, you can!

Everyone loves getting presents, especially in the current economic climate (just in case you haven't heard anyone else use that phrase today!)

So as a special "just because" present for the summer I present you with this fabulous dress; as soon as I saw it I fell in love with its potential for both day and night wear, the ditzy and the boho shape.

All you have to do to win is leave me a comment outlining where you'd wear the dress and how you'd style it: oh and promise to send me a picture of you wearing it when you win, of course!!

I'd never heard of chickdowntown until the weekend, and I have no idea why not; i'm obviously not as cool as I thought I was! They stock a host of great designers, but the section that excited me the most of their site is the vintage page: there are hundreds of pretty boots and dresses, and this dior dress, which I would actually die to own! Definitely worth checking out!
The competition ends on Friday 24th JULY at 12pm GMT, and I will announce the winner at 5pm GMT on that Friday afternoon.

Good luck guys, and get entering!

Love, Tor x

PS - only ship to the US (unfortunately for me, because there is a wildfox couture tshirt and a J.A.K checked shirt on their site with my name all over it!) which means this competition is only open to US readers. Sorry Europe - the next one will be for you!

PPS - I just noticed on their twitter page that they are having an exclusive twitter follower discount of $100 off your shopping; could somebody remind me again why I live in London!?
PPPS - Thanks again to for donating this fabulous prize!

NB - This dress is available in sizes XS- L. However should the size you require be sold out you can select an equivilent product from the Mink Pink range.

Beautiful dress! I would wear it on my vacation in Mexico and to beach, with gladiator sandals and bangle bracelets.

That dress is darling, I would have to wear it out to the farmers market and out for lunch with my husband. I'd pair it with some simple but strappy sandals and a boho bag. I'm a pretty simple person so that's what would work for me.

I'd wear it with strappy sandals and gold necklace and earrings. I'd either wear it to the beach or a casual lunch date with the girlfriends!

I'd wear this dress out to the park. I'd pair it w/simple ballet flats & a woven leather handbag.

I would wear this dress to sunday brunch with girlfriends. I would pair it with gladiator style sandals because it meshes perfectly with the classic simplicity of a Maxi dress. I would also accessorize the outfit with cute bangles.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I would wear this dress for a stroll on the beach with my flipflops.

I'd wear the dress in the daytime with my strappy gladiator sandals, some gold bangles, and a fringed suede across the body bag for shopping with friends or a lunch date. For nighttime, I would dress it up with my strappy gladiator inspired studded heels and just keep the bangles and ditch the fringed bag for a clutch.

Jessica said...

Love it! This is a great date dress with gold bangles, a long necklace and brown gladiator sandals. A brown leather bag to finish off the look.

I love this dress! I would definitely wear some gladiator sandals, with a cute fedora hat, some gold accesories, and rock it on an outing, or to a bar or a pool party! it's so cute!

It's so adorable and so me! I'd wear it anywhere really. In this awful scorching hot weather dresses are what any sane gal would wear. It's be perfect with some cute jewelry and sandals and perfect for a day out with friends. :)

Emma said...

I love this dress! I'd wear it with woven flat sandals, simple earrings, and an armful of thin gold bangles.

Thanks for the chance!

Ashley said...

I would wear this dress on a picnic with my boyfriend! I'd add a floppy straw hat, flat strappy sandals, a few bangle bracelets, and a long necklace to complete the look. And I'd definitely send you a picture of it if I won! :)

First of all, I do promise to send a pic if I win this dress! I would wear this adorable dress with my vintage Dr. Scholl's sandals and my big clunky silver hoop earrings.

Oh and I promise to send a picture if I win!!!

Oh man, I am in love with this dress! I can just see myself going to the flea markets in that one. Looks like it would keep me nice and cool.
I think I would switch it up from the gladiator sandals and maybe try some flat gray ankle boots. Seems like that might be something unique to try. (I'm one of those people that loves boots with dresses) Probably some wooden bracelets too, and top it all off with my big brown capezio vintage purse.
I can also see myself pairing this with a loose open vest and some vintage pumps. Basically my mind is racing with ideas.

This dress is great! I'd wear it with my gold steve madden flats and one of my handmade sea glass pendant necklaces out to lunch with a friend! ;)
