Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

giveaway: $100 credit to rue la la

November 14th, 2011 · Print Print

I didn’t realize when I put this outfit together how similar it was to this one from a few weeks ago — but the fact is, basics like these were just designed to be worn over and over again in different ways!

Chad and I keep meaning to go check out some open houses on the weekends, so I was dressing for that when I pulled this together (the football game took priority over house-hunting, though, so this ended up just being for brunch).  But you can’t beat this whole look for chic, elegant comfort.

I’ve had so much fun exploring the great deals on Rue La La over the past few weeks, and now it’s time for you guys to do the same!  They’ve so generously offered a $100 credit for one of you to win — all you have to do is check out the site, and leave a comment below letting me know your favorite item on sale now!  (You need an account to see their sales — if you don’t have one already, you can use this link for an invite!)

I’ll announce the random winner next week — good luck!

Gifted Three Dots dress (via Rue La La), Via Spiga boots, gifted Eric Javitz handbag, Splendid wrap, C. Wonder necklaces.

Update: The winner is Comment 67, Grace!

  • 50 India // Nov 14, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    LOVE that Badgley Mischka navy cocktail dress. All about the dress-downed-at-work over a Peter Pan collared blouse to dressed-up-at-night with some flashy heels look. This is one of those perfectly easily convertible dresses.

  • 51 Sophia // Nov 14, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    I love your outfit! Those boots are gorgeous! Gotta love wedge heels :) xo

  • 52 Kim // Nov 14, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    I haunt ruelala! One of my favorite shopping sites (although I didn’t realize how good it was until I saw a BCBG dress for 100 which was 250 in store). Lots of beautiful things on the site right now, but the only thing I’m really lusting over is the Lela Rose Black and Cobalt Dress under the “cocktails” tab.
