Twenties Girl Giveaway

Kittens if there’s one thing I have told you time and time again, it is that I am in complete and utter adoration of the 1920’s. A point in time marred by flappers, bobbed hair, jazz music, t-strap shoes crafted for dancing the Charleston long into the night alongside dapper boys, and New York City’s Harlem Renaissance. It was the writing of my beloved F. Scott Fitzgerald who turned me on to the era, instilling an obsession within me; but more recently I can place blame upon Sophie Kinsella. Since delving into the pages of her latest bewitching story Twenties Girl, I have come to the conclusion that, in the same fashion as the tale’s fiery protagonist Lara Lington, there is absolutely nothing wrong with allowing a little twenties flair to permeate from your pores even in the year 2009. Which, I presume, is precisely how two (2) of you lovelies will be feeling this time next week when you find out whether or not being a Twenties Girl is in your future. But alas; you’re all curious to know what I’m going on and on about, I’m sure.

In true holiday spirit, and the hope of bringing a bit of old glamour and natty noir-influenced nostalgia to your winter must-reads, Café Fashionista has teamed up with Random House to bring two (2) lucky readers their very own copy of Twenties Girl!

To Enter the Twenties Girl Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader/Google Friend Connect, and leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick two (2) names out of a hat (who knows, one of them could be yours!), and announce the winner on Thursday, December 31, 2009.

Good luck everyone!

And yes, this Giveaway is open to everyone – U.S. or International residents!


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Mountains of Books and Happy Go Ducky for the pictures.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Why hello Darling! I love the 20s as well, probably not as much as you but I do enjoy them! However, I am just not down with the taping down of the chests... I'm all about bras- but other than that, flappers have a great look.

1. Commenting you about the giveaway!
2. I tweeted you (and at you) @caitielady08
3. I follow you!

Okay, E, yet another thing we're totally on the same page about. I've always been in love with the twenties. The Great Gatsby is the thing my husband & I agree about (the best novel, ever). The last paragraph is one of the most beautiful string of words I've ever read.

We lived for a period before London, on Long Island, in the area where I grew up, which is major Great Gatsby territory (our little barn was renovated in the 20s, and was part of one of the estates in the area: the big house was actually owned by another novelist, Leon Uris). And I keep a copy of Tender is the Night by my bed, for when I'm between novels, & just open it to any page.

I didn't even know Sophie Kinsella wrote this book. But I'm not entering the competition (apart from winning the 'longest comment' award). Will look for it here in London.

On one last thing about the flapper period: besides that it's my favourite style, it also influenced the sixties style, which is always being referenced. I don't think there was any period that so radically changed the style from what came before, as that decade.

Bethany said...
