Free Dress Give Away!


A couple weeks ago I was contacted by Michaella Lawson, owner of Mikarose, a company that sells modest dresses. She asked if I'd be willing to do a dress giveaway on my blog, well I'm a bit a Nazi on stuff like that, I don't like promoting things I don't KNOW first hand even if it is free. But I just happened to be in need of a little black dress because my last little black dress is, well, too little.

So I went to the website and found a dress I loved (Okay, I found several that I loved, but one that I loved a little more than the others) and I ordered the Halle. It arrived last week and I wore it to church on Sunday. It's actually almost the exact same pattern of my most-favorite dress I own that I bought at Downeast Outfitters, except that DO only had it in a couple colors, all with a polka dot design. Well, I'm not a girl that needs more than one polka dot dress so while I love the one I own, I didn't buy any others of the DO dresses. So I was THRILLED when this one was so similar. Honestly, I'm surprised that she offers free give aways on such high quality stuff--call me a cynic but most free stuff is synonymous with cheap stuff. I currently have my eye on another one (the Cynthia even though it's more polkadots--it's super cute) and Now that I'm convinced it's a worthy give away, I'm ready to offer it to you guys. Here are the rules:

1) You have to live in the US or Canada for shipping purposes.

2) You have to go to the Mikarose website and pick out the dress you like. They all have names like Dawn or Ashley or Halle.

3) Come back here and leave a comment with the name of the dress you want. If you're not a blogger you'll need to leave get me your e-mail address so we can contact you if you win. You HAVE to specify a dress you like in order to have a valid entry.

Contest will be open until next Wednesday--February 27--at which time Michaella has a computer thingy that will draw the name and we'll announce it here as well as send you a note. The winner will get a $60 gift certificate they can then use on the Mikarose website to purchase their favorite dress. Dresses are sized XS-XL which covers 0-18.

All dresses are designed with modesty in mind; with high necklines, low hems, long enough sleeves and yet they are designed in a way so as to still be flattering to our girlish figures.

Good luck!

They're all cute dresses, but I think I'm with you. I like the Halle the best.

Kimberly said...

Oooo...how lovely! Very difficult to choose, but I like the Raven (fuller skirts make me happy - I'm a twirler by nature). Thanks Josi!

You've got good taste--I agree that the Halle looks stylish and flattering. :) Fun give-away.

They're all so pretty and modest!

I'm definitely a fan of the Ariana.

I like Halle best as well.

How fun!

Autumn Ables said...

OH, wow, super duper cute dresses. I had a hard time picking which I liked the best.

My top favorite is Raven. I LOVE IT! Halle is my second choice.

Annette Lyon said...

Halle all the way, baby. I hadn't heard of them before. Thanks for pointing them out.

I love #3104. It is in the clearance section and doesn't have a name. I love that they are all modest dresses.

Isabelle is my favorite one, and I love that it is a silk cotton. Nothing beats silk. It is so nice that there are companies out there trying to give us modest choices.

Carole Thayne said...

Okay, I'm in too! I want the Halle as well although I won't look as cute as Josi in hers. :)

Jenna Consolo said...

Well, I like several too, and seeing as I haven't bought a new dress in about 6 years, it's about time, right? Ummmm...I'll pick the Ashley. But it's a tough call. The Halle and the Cynthia are great too. Good luck to me!

Luisa Perkins said...
