It's a Marc Jacobs Giveaway!


Denise of The Blue Gardenia, aka The Woman Who Organizes the Best Giveaways Ever, has provided a little celebration in honor of Marc Jacobs's birthday. Side note: did you know he just turned 47? Looking good!

Here's what's up for giveaway. First, a rare Vogue Marc Jacobs skirt pattern. There are three variations, and it's a size 16-18. Clean, classic, lovely!

Second, a tube of MAC pro Longwear Lipcreme in Prolong, a classic red. (I had no idea there was a MAC red lipstick that I didn't own yet. This must be rectified.)

Third, a bottle of Zoya Dovima, a metallic smokey gray nail polish. I saw some similar shades in a magazine recently, and they looked amazing. Plus, it's named after the fabulous 50s model who was a favorite of Dior.


The overall combo? Fierce! I think Marc would approve.

To enter, just leave a comment here by midnight on Sunday EST. All countries eligible.

A big thanks to Denise of The Blue Gardenia!

  25. Oh that skirt- Be still my beating heart- it's In. My. Size. OMG!!!

    Fingers tightly crossed and a big thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  26. There is never a bad time to get a great skirt pattern. Also, that nail polish is killer. I've been hunting a flat gray for me for awhile but I just love shiny things too much. That shade is perfect. And if you pick me to win, I'll mail you the lipstick. Much as I love it, hubby told me I looked old when I wore red lips and even though I think he's lying because he hates lipstick, he won this mindgame. I can't bring myself to put it on anymore. Sad face. But happy for you! Pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love all three and would wear them together!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMGoodness the pattern!! Great giveaway!

  30. Love Marc Jacobs' creations! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I could definitely use a new red lipstick, and I don't have a grey shade of nailpolish at the moment. I wonder how the sizing on that skirt pattern is? It's within a few of my size so there is definitely potential there. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, yes! This is terrific! Thanks so much.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooooh, fab prizes! Thanks, and count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Whoa, I love the lipstick and polish! I love the skirt but the pattern is too large for me. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
