giveaway: orchard art house

You might remember ekate designs, featured here a few weeks ago. Well not only does she sell the loveliest jewelry + apparel on etsy, she also owns a gorgeous brick + mortar store called the Orchard Art House here in Excelsior, MN. If you're free on Thursday nights in December, you should most definitely get out and check out the Holiday Bizarre Bazaar going on in downtown Excelsior. Erin is hosting fun parties at her studio/gallery {22460 Murray St. in Excelsior} from 6-9pm. A little birdie told me there would be deals. And the party this Thursday night (12/16) is actually a GUY'S NIGHT! There will be cigars and scotch by the fire for all those lovely gentlemen who buy for their wives and mothers.

PLUS: Today Erin is generously giving away a $25 gift certificate Orchard Art House gift certificate to one lucky reader! You need not be local to win, because this is also redeemable in the ekate designs etsy shop. There are 3 ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment stating your favorite holiday accessory or outfit in your closet. (i.e. what are you wearing to your Christmas party?)

2. Like ekate designs/Orchard Art House on facebook and leave a comment stating you did so.

I keep it simple. Grey pants, lovely deep red sweater with belt. Heels. Sparkle it up with jewelry.

Well this year, I found a cute sapphire blue dress on sale for a very affordable $5. It is a few sizes too big for me normally, but with just weeks before baby comes, it will do just the trick...
Plus, if I never feel the desire to wear it again, I tend to do that with maternity-ish clothes, I won't feel so bad about the price.

I love the Amazing Grace Vintage hymn pendant on ekate designs. Sometimes those simple words from familiar hymns can be so inspirational!

Ooh, for holiday parties this year, I'm definitely rocking these great lace tights I got from Urban Outfitters. They can add a little somethin' somethin' to any dress!

From the shop, love the Leafy Green Necklace.

Well if I were going to a Christmas party this year I would have to buy something. So if I were going to buy something, I would buy a nice pencil-y skirt, shiny top with ruffle sort of things and a contrasting cardigan. Yay for on-line window shopping!

Sandra said...

I really like the Travelogue Coin Necklace!

My go to this year for party going, leggings. It is my go to for everything. I am almost 8 months pregnant, comfort and style all in one!

Got to wear it last night, and for the first time in a long time didn't want to take my outfit off!

A ruffly green Matilda Jane top over leggings accessorized by a chunky rosette necklace and tall slouchy gray boots!

It is so hard to decide, since everything, is gorgeous!

I think the Local is Lovely is still my favorite!

I like the Forest Fairy Necklace!

I am a fan of using scarves. I love to mix and match the colors and always feel that scarves add a touch of sophistication to an outfit!

Barb said...

I'd wear black pants, a sparkly sweater and a great vintage rhinestone necklace.

I appreciate simple with a TWIST. I have a knee-length silver dress with a black band around the waist. I like wearing sheer black stockings with black pumps and long blue teardrop earrings to match.

The best accessory with this outfit is a open and giving holiday spirit!

Holly said...

new cocktail dress and an old jewelry pin from grandma.

I love the Sapphire and Ginkgo Gold Earrings. Well, I love it all, but those earrings are fabulous.

Becca said...

Ok, I'm lovin the nautical necklace and I want to be sporting a ruffle tee with it too! So hard to pick just one item- I really love a lot of them. I'll have to stop by when I head to Chaska in Jan. And how cool to have scotch and cigars- Sam would be all over that!

Becca said...

Good question. What to wear to a Christmas party. I'm afraid I may need to go shopping. I do love a silky tank I have and a vintage jacket. But I want a pretty new dress!
