5 Days of Snakeskin Skinnies: Day 5 and a GIVEAWAY!-CLOSED

November 9, 2012 by Trina 92 Comments

UPDATED:  The winner is….Cassie Whitaker!  Cassie, be on the look out for an email from me.  Congrats!

This week went by fast!  It’s been a fun week and I hope you’ve enjoyed all the looks so far.

Today I am technically sharing one look with you, but in different colors.  I wanted to try a turtleneck/vest look but I couldn’t decide which color I liked better so you get to see both.

I started with my ruffle trimmed turtleneck from Shade Clothing and first added the black vest and flats.  To jazz it up I finished it off with my chunky jeweled gold chain bib style necklace from Belk.  Then I decided to try my ivory sleeveless sweater from Wet Seal and tan booties.  I love them both.  What do you think?

turtleneck: Shade, black vest: Target, flats: Kohl’s, ring: Kohl’s, necklace: Belk’s clearance rack, sleeveless sweater: Wet Seal, booties: Steve Madden {similar}, skinnies: Dressbarn {similar here, here and here, plus size here}

Now for the giveaway!  As I mentioned Monday, up for grabs is a $50 gift card to The Shops of Grand River located in Leeds, AL.  So if you are a Birmingham area resident this one is for you.

How to Enter

  • MANDATORY:  Leave one comment on this post telling me your favorite snakeskin skinnies look {what Day: 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5} and what shop you’d visit first at Grand River with the gift card.  Remember Grand River is in Leeds, AL.  If you aren’t local this contest isn’t for you.
  • OPTIONAL:  These are for extra entries.  IMPORTANT:  In order to have your name put in the hat more than once for each of these, you need to leave a separate comment for each one you do.  There are 4 options for extra entries:  1) Follow me on Twitter, 2) Like my page on Facebook, 3) Follow Shops of Grand River on Twitter, 4) Like Shops of Grand River’s page on Facebook.  If you are already a follower or fan, just let me know in the comments.
