"Not at Viva" Dress Giveaway

Friday, April 6, 2012


We should have another Friday Fashionista today but I thought we'd have a giveaway instead. I know it's going to be pretty quiet in blog land while many of our favorite bloggers and darling readers are shopping, dancing and having an amazing time at Viva Las Vegas. This little momma is not at Viva (and maybe a -little- envious of those that are) so I thought that us wallflowers should have some fun too!

 Here's the "Not at Viva" Giveaway for all of the girls stuck at home
Today's giveaway comes from Jenni, owner of Jack's Daughter, maker of fabulous vintage reproduction clothing and accessories.  Jenni started out making dance outfits for her and her husband and now sews vintage reproductions for her etsy shop every day! Jenni often uses authentic vintage fabrics in her work.  These are some of Jenni's past designs.






 The Prize
Dress from Jack's Daughter- This pin-up perfect dress was handmade using vintage red dotted swiss fabric. The dress can be worn strapless (bodice has boning) or with the removable black halter tie, which buttons into the inside of the bodice. The dress zips up the back and comes with a matching black and red belt.
 Measurements
bust 39 inches

waist 33 inches

hip- free
length from back zip to hem 28 inches
pictured with petticoat
 

3 polka dot hair bows from Jack's Daughter- in black, purple and coral (pictured) to go with your lovely new dress


To Enter
Be a follower of Va-Voom Vintage and leave me a comment, telling me what you're doing while you're "not at Viva"
 -for two extra entries, share on facebook
-for another two extras, share on your blog

giveaway ends on Wednesday and is open worldwide. Winner will be announced on Thursday. A special thank you to Jack's Daughter for the beautiful giveaway prizes and thank you always to my wonderful readers!!

  1. Besides gearing up for Easter on Sunday, I'm experimenting with different sets and pulling out my Spring/Summer wardrobe to see what I need. I'd rather be at VLV!
