Reader Giveaway: Kranich's Jewelry!

Hello Lovelies! Welcome to my FIRST EVER Reader giveaway! An amazing fine jewelry company, Kranich's Jewelers, specializes in breathtaking engagement rings and fun fashion jewelry. They're an online storefront that prides themselves on making their customers feel like they are shopping with a small-town store. They've been around since 1903 with several locations in Pennsylvania, so they definitely know fine jewelry!

After perusing their many designers, I've chosen a few of my favorite pieces. Growing up, I was never really into diamonds or fine jewelry, but after receiving a few special rings from my Mother in the past few years (ones that I hardly ever take off, too!), I've grown to love and appreciate a beautiful piece of jewelry.

So now onto the fun part....Kranich's has generously offered a $200 gift certificate to one reader! The rules?

1.) Like Love, Simone on facebook!
2.) Like Kranich's jewelry and your favorite Kranich's designer on Facebook (Simon G, Ritani Designs, Verragio and Twitter (@Kranichs)!
3.) Go to Kranich's website and pick out your favorite piece and in a comment tell me what it is and how you would style it!

This giveaway will be open until Thursday Sept. 8th (2 Weeks!) and I will choose a winner at random!

*This giveaway is only open to my US readers...but don't worry, I will do another one soon for all of my international loves!

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed! A winner will be chosen at random Sunday (9/11) morning! xo

Congrats to the Winner! Comment #13, DrakeLathrop12 :) I will be sending you an email so be on the lookout! And thanks again to everyone that entered! I should be doing another giveaway in the near future.

A few weeks ago I did a joint shoot with my friend Emily, designer of the amazing edgy Madness Is. We decided that she would do tops and I would do some bottoms! It's completely different than anything I have ever done, but the shots turned out really amazing, don't you think?

Sooo..better late than never, right guys? Swept away by the craziness of life, I completely forgot to post my S/S Lookbook! Of course, now I'm already working on my fall collection as well as planning my fall photoshoot :)

This was my first "real" lookbook project and I'm so proud/happy/giddy about the way it turned out. I got to work with some amazing people on it, and can't wait to do another!

Also, be on the lookout for a huge sale this weekend on my spring collection on Etsy!

Happy Monday Loves!
