[Giveaway] $200 Karen Kane Styling Day!

Recently, I was contacted by Michael at Karen Kane for a giveaway opportunity.  A brand, that honestly, I had never heard of.  I was tad skeptical, but Michael let me know that the brand is carried in stores like Nordstrom, Macy's, Lord & Taylor, and Bloomingdale's.  He also told me that the brand had recently gone under it's own little make over/make younger since they were trying to get away of the "mom" clothes categorization, and gain a more contemporary styling for the coming year.

Which made me think of Ann Taylor, LOFT, and Talbots.  All companies that had a face lift in the last few years to reach a newer, and younger, audience (or, well, you could say me -and most of my readers... the 20-something post college career girl) that would no longer associate those brands with their mother's closets....

and to prove it... here are some other ladies (just like me) putting their twist on the brand....



Linley from Dwelling and Telling in Little White Dress

Linley, again, in the Beaded Smocked Neck Top

Kimmie from Blue Paper Lanterns in Flower Skirt


Ramsey from Love, Ramsey in the Black Skinny Pant

 
 and finally, me!, in the ankle pant
(I'm obsessed with this 'jegging' and I've been avoiding jeggings like the plague!)

Stay tuned for my detailed review of the Ankel Pant and a few other items I've been so lucky enough to style!


But now, on to what's in it for you!

What's up for grabs??

If you live within a 50 mile radius of a store that carries Karen Kane, they will set you up with one of their personal stylists for $200 shopping spree. You'll get one-on-one consultation with someone who knows all about the brand! If you do not live within a 50 mile radius - no problem, they'll send you a gift card to use on Karen Kane at a nearby store (the brand is currently carried at Macy's, Belk, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Dillard's, and Bon Ton).

To Enter:

In order to win, leave a comment below about which item you like best from their Summer collection (seen here!) 

For additional entries, either

1) sign up for their emails
2) become their fan on Twitter

....and then leave another comment for each of the letting me know which option you did above (one, the other, or two separate comments for both!)

Make sure you leave your email or a way to be contacted in your comment, in case you are the lucky winner!


Contest will remain open until midnight (EST) on Memorial Day, May 30th, 2011.   Winner will be announced on May 31st.   Good Luck!
