|Necklace: Hot Mama, Tee & Shoes: Target, |
Skirt (similar): c/o Kokoon, Backpack: Urban Junket
Do you prefer to invest in basics or statement pieces? Personally, I'm really into basics that make a statement (catch what I did there? sneaky). I received a couple of pieces from KOKOON, and that's exactly what they are.
I pulled this skirt out of the package, and because I talk to my clothing, said aloud, "Hmm, that's cool." Then I slipped it on, did a little half-spin in the mirror, and said, "Wow. I really love this." It's the flattering design and deliciously soft, jersey fabric that makes all the difference. And it's insanely versatile - dress it up with a blazer and heels, dress it down with a t-shirt and flats or boots.
See the red dress below? That also came to me in black. Meow. It's so killer, it deserves it's own post...or remix. Save that idea for later...
KOKOON scores extra points with me because it's based in Minneapolis - high five from across of the river! You won't find KOKOON in stores, which I also love. Host a trunk show in the privacy of your own home (WAY different than other home parties: no presentation, recruiting or pressure - hallelujah), buy online, OR attend the 25th Anniversary event on September 23rd, which will include a pop-up boutique. General admission is free, but you must RSVP. I'll be there!
And now, time for a giveaway! How does a $100 gift card sound? Feel free to do a little happy dance, I won't judge. You know the drill:
1. Visit KOKOON and leave a comment on this post telling me what item(s) you love most.
2. For an extra entry, like KOKOON on Facebook - let me know in a separate comment.
3. For an extra EXTRA entry, tweet about this giveaway - again, separate comment please.
***open to US and Canada residents only
Winner will be announced Monday, September 30th. I'm already excited for you, whoever you are!
