Win £50 to spend at Boux Avenue!

28 March 2012

boux avenue blog competition
boux avenue madeline bra boux avenue gift card

The sun is shining, the winter clothes have been banished and the layers are starting to get thinner.  Although I'm typically an Autumn/Winter girl, I'm determined to be a lot braver this summer and not freak out too much about showing off the bod, what with all the cut-outs and crop tops that are on trend.  I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thinking about making what lies beneath a little more interesting and handily Boux Avenue have sent me a £50 giftcard to give away to a lucky reader.  There's a great selection of vintage-inspired lingerie on the site, as well as some cute printed swimwear (I'm partial to this set myself) and good old pjs for real-life pyjama dressing.

The rules:
Leave a comment on this post telling me the SS12 trend you are braving this season and a method of contact.
Follow my blog on either GFC, Facebook or Bloglovin to keep the ramblings a coming.
You must be a U.K resident (apologies to all my international readers but rest assured I will be sorting a giveaway for everyone as soon as I can).
The competition ends on Friday 6th April (a.k.a Good Friday) and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards (or when I've devoured a few Easter Eggs).

Good luck!

  6. I am braving colour. Not pastels (well, I'm doing that too), but colour. Anyone that knows me knows I cherish dark, deep fabrics and I'm allergic to colour, but I am buying colourful things and trying to embrace the sunshine!

  9. The clash of the prints: animal prints, floral prints, stripes etc! I'd love to pull off this look because I'm quite a safe, matchy kind of person when it comes to putting together outfits.

  10. Oooh gorgeous choice Kbel! The packaging is really pretty too especially with the addition of those rose petals (fake?), such a lovely thing to receive- what a treat!

  11. Bold coloured Crochet tops, with coloured Capri's! I'm feeling very 80's without the padding and big hair! But they are coming back too! ;)

  12. Bright pinks and yellows. As I am blonde and fair -skinned, I will have to invest in some serious self-tanning, I think:-)

  13. I'm braving crop tops! Every time I wear one I'm stunned that I've actually made it out the house without freaking out and changing!

  36. I am slowly becoming a sugared almond but cannot give up delicious pastel shades (even if they do make me hungry!) so I'm trying to toughen them up with gorgeous aztec/tribal prints :)

  37. I'd love to master the art of "Clash and Crash"! I've seen some amazing bright printed skirts/trousers and I'd love to match them with something less predictable than a solid colour. It's definitely stepping outside my usual style but I'm so ready for the change!
