FYBF – Not what you know but who you know {A Giveaway !}

by mamagrace71 on July 20, 2012

You gotta love that famous saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”

Remember the funky outfit I wore for my “How to party in your 40′s” FYBF Vlog ?

Well, let me remind you…

Unfortunately, I can’t take full credit for creating that entire – from earrings to boots –  ensemble.

I received so many lovely compliments though, I thought it was high time I introduced the lovely lady who’s actually responsible.

For almost 2 years, Veronica has saved me from many a moment of fashion despair. I also know I can rely on her to help me find the perfect birthday or thank you present.

You see, thanks to my recently mummy staple of trackies and jeans, I’ve become somewhat a little fashion impaired.  I know little about what’s pretty these days. But Veronica does.  And boy, am I glad to claim her as one of my glamorous friends who never fails when waving her personal stylist magic wand.

It gives me great pleasure to announce this very special giveaway to my beloved Floggers.

Veronica has generously offered some truly beautiful pieces for you guys…

Pretty Black and Gold Earrings (nickel free). Retail value: $29

Versatile Cotton Mix Cream Cardigan with Pockets. Retail value: $49

Gorgeous Red and Black Cotton Mix Long Scarf. Retail value: $39

Woo Hoo!
That cardi’s mine! lol (Please??)
I’m in Melbourne! It’s fricking freezing! It’s hard to be fashionable when you’ve got skivvies over your skivvies and cardi’s over your jumpers!
But having that little number on top…..now that’s a whole different drawer of woolies!
Aaaah, I could be a fashionista once again! ;)

I love a good card and have been looking for a nice white one for ages. Just right for field side on Saturday mornings. Just quietly love the scarf too but I’ve run out of room for scarves!

I am loving the white cardi. It would go with everything and is trans-seasonal. And it has pockets for snotty tissues and car keys! Triple win.
I love your yellow dress the best though! xxx

Love you in yellow Grace. Just gorgeous!

I’m quite fond of the red and black scarf – my rugby team colours! But I do love the retro vibe of thee earrings too. :)
