INSPIRATION MONDAY...GIVEAWAY

Elizabeth Olsen...the inspiration
  
Hi and welcome to Inspiration Monday where a bunch of us blogger gals like to join TwoBirds for their link up!  Today's inspiration is Elizabeth Olsen.  She is just adorable and fortunate...why couldn't I have been at least a distant cousin to the Olsen's? Sigh...I would settle for being their cat. 

 I love my gifted bracelet from Shayla Shines Designs.  Shayla Shines Designs is a favorite etsy store of mine and Shayla is a close, personal friend.  I love her one of a kind, jewelry designs.  She uses unique, vintage and newer pieces to design and hand craft her jewelry.  Her prices are comfortable and she is building a wonderful inventory for her store and upcoming debut at a prestigious Fall Festival in the quaint little town of Maple Shade, September 8th. 

Click on Shayla Shines designs above and like her Facebook page.
Visit her Etsy store by clicking the word Etsy above and let me know which piece you would like to have by leaving me a  comment as she is giving away any piece of your choice....how wonderful is that?
You must be a follower of Suitcase Vignettes.
Winner will be announced next Inspiration Monday!!

Hello Dawn! Thanks for your comment, that's a really nice thing to say, and for someone to say that about my writing means a lot to me- I love words! (Though I have far too great a penchant for exclamation marks!)
You look very pretty in this outfit and I think an excellent interpretation of Ms Olsen. I think you'd get the job of the cat- looking very cute!

Cara said...

Wow you totally nailed this look! I wore a jacket in mine as well, need to get it posted when I get home from work :)

LOVE your dress choice!

Steph said...

Absolutely perfect!!! the outfit is great, your hair is gorgeous, and the scenery makes me nostalgic because it looks like where my grandmother lived! Great job!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

LMFAO! Dawn, no you didn't say you would settle for being the Olsen Twins pet cat! HAHAHAHA I'm laughing, but me too! HAHAHAHAHA I'll settle for being their bird! Don't they live longer? LOL I'm silly! Your outfit is a deadringer for hers! Gosh, y'all are good every week! Keep it up!

I'm totally entering this contest! I liked Shayla on facebook (Kim Elizabeth)and if I should happen to be the chosen one I would love the "Lovely lite blue riverstone bracelet with Hand of Fatima (Hamsa) Charm". I was VERY impressed that it said,"Riverstone is believed to have a regenerative effect on the body and relieve anxiety." I need all the HEALING HANDS I CAN GET! Lots of stress and anxiety in my life right now. This would be perfect. Glad you liked my review girl! Have an amazing week!

Love this outfit. I think adding a denim jacket to almost any outfit makes it casual chic.
Those boots are spot-on perfect for this year.
