Girl in Pearls Giveaway

Darlings if we learned anything, anything at all, from Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s it is that all girls should be in possession of two very important things: a little black dress that drapes decadently over her form, and a singular strand of pearls to clasp around the nape of her neck – two timeless, sophisticated necessities that one is simply powerless without. By now I imagine many of you are already armed with the former; now, however, you have the chance to claim the latter as your very own.

You’ve surmised correctly, kitty cats! Café Fashionista has teamed up with Louis Anthony, a premiere Pittsburgh Jeweler, to bring one (1) of you fortunate femme fatales a pearl necklace valued at approximately $300.00. A bedazzling bauble made up of 9.5mm freshwater pearls hanging 18-inches in length, and adorned with a 14k gold French hook-style clasp destined to sprinkle your style with a chic touch of classic appeal.

To Enter the Girl in Pearls Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, January 28, 2010 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, January 28, 2010 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 Thursday, January 28, 2010 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick one (1) name out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Friday, January 29, 2010.

Good luck everyone!

This Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents!


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Pittsburgh Jeweler for the picture.
