A Milemarker For Us...A Gift For You!

Since our 100th post fell on the 1st day of a whole brand new year....

We think it is cause for celebration!


If you would like to win this:

JCrew Grosgrain Chain necklace...leave us a comment with your name,contact info/trackback and what is your personal favorite accessory.

Because inquiring minds want to know.

Actually, I'm simply nosy...that's all.

I posted this info at the bottom of the post titled 2009, but since no one has entered (thanks, I feel like the girl who has no date for the prom) I thought I would remention it (my husband said I was stupid to mention it like a sidebar all the way at the bottom of a post - thanks honey, I love it when you point out my misjudgements after I had realized it myself).

And so as not make you go back to that post you can just leave your comments here!!!

The giveaway ends at 12 midnight EST on January 8,2010.
Winner will be selected randomly.

Oh, and I must give my husband a big thank you - not only did he make our header a little while back, he made the cute little clock man above.

I guess he really does love me, indulging me with his graphic design prowess (his real life job), but also for putting up with me being so high maintainence and recently blowing up the credit cards.

So, thanks honey!

Don't forget to enter!!!

And good luck!!!


  1. Yay! Congratulations on 100 posts!!! and what a cute necklace!
    Let's see, my favorite accessory is a great smile ;) Well, that and probably a long sparkly necklace. I don't think I have one in absolute particular. I just love putting one on because they tend to jazz up even the simplest tank top or turtleneck sweater. (and I'm not just saying that because you are giving away a super cute necklace from J.Crew)

    I look forward to 100+ more posts! Congratulations!!!


  2. Oh, I didn't see it! yay! My fave accessory has to be my A.V. Max studded bracelet. I never post it on the blog (doh!) but I just love it. It actually fits me, which is rare for a bracelet, and it has both gold and silver, so it's a great piece for anything. Now you've inspired me to wear it again! :)


  3. Yay! Thanks Pam and Justine I knew I could count on you two to get the ball rolling...
    Now I don't feel like such a wallflower!

  4. I saw your comment to me at my blog (so nice), but just got home!!! I promise, I was going to enter the other I would have been your date to the prom???

    Very generous giveaway btw. Pretty grosgrain and a shiny chain? Umm, all over that, of course. :)

    my e-mail is dinagideon AT aim DOT com.


  5. Oh, no, I screwed up and now I will count twice. IRKSOME. Don't count my last entry, if #4 wins, you have to go with the next number, promise me.

    My favorite accessory (besides my baby, kidding!!!) is whatever makes the outfit sing, so it is kind of like x in algebra, it always changes. For instance, today my outfit NEEDED a belt, and so today's fave accessory was the belt, but on NYE it was the fab shimmerveil bag that I bought. All depends, you know???

  6. oooooo thanks for the awesome giveaway. congrats on the blog!


  7. A big congratulations are in order for the 100 postings! I know it's a lot of fun looking back on how much time you devote to a blog and all the things you make mention of.
    My favorite accessory would be my engagement ring (sappy I know) but it's true. I wear it everyday, it's a beautiful vintage piece, and goes with everything!


  8. Congratulations on 100 posts! My favorite accessory is a garnet necklace. It's one of the few necklaces I own, so I wear it a lot. I'd love to win another!

  9. Congrats! My favorite accessory is usually a brightly colored scarf. Especially if I'm wearing a simple outfit like black leather boots, jeans and a black peacoat - something like a bright fushia scarf can make all the difference!

  10. My favorite accessory is a special pair of earrings, a gift from my husband. I wear them with just about everything.


  11. Congrats! My favorite accessory is the watch my parents gave me. I wear it and check it daily,and when I do, I think of them. Thanks for offering a giveaway.

  16. My favorite accessory -- so hard to decide -- is a great purse/bag. I have an overused Micheal Kors bag that I've used and had to have the rivets replaced and the leather handles redone because I stuff everything in it from a laptop to my dog. Congrats on 100 posts!

  17. congrats on the 100th post!! My favorite accessory is easy, my J Crew Buuble necklace shown here:

    It makes a huge statement and I just love finding new ways to wear it. I don't wear a lot of accessories so it always seems funny that my favorite one is so bold!

    Well, I was going to say that my favorite accessory is my wedding band * engagement ring, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say my HUBBY is my favorite accessory! He compliments me in everywhich way.. and goes with everything I wear. Also, there is no one else out there that has such a beautiful and amzing "accessory" as mine!! Corny I know.. but it's true.

    On the sea of love, he's my soul matey.. :)
