Outfit Post, Giveaway Results, and a Debatable Topic

Hello Girls! I hope your week is going well so far! Here lately, all I've been wearing are pretty simple outfits. So here again, is a simple look, but, hey, least I'm wearing shoes this time!! And heels no less! :)


For those of you missing my walmart white socks, do not fret, they are infact, on my feet, just hidden by the heels!

Have you girls been wearing simple looks like me, as of late? With it getting a bit colder, does that affect what you wear much? I do love to layer. I've just not been very motivated lately to be creative with my outfits. I haven't had much time to get all dolled up recently. I know for the holiday tea this Saturday I will though, and I will be sure to capture photos then!


This is another top that I like the back of.  You can't see it all that well in that photo, but it's just kind of sliced across the top back, with little peeps of my skin.  It's fun and different.

I'm also sporting a fun new lipstick that I was lucky enough to win from a giveaway that
http://jointhegossip.blogspot.com/ was having!!  It's FACE Stockholm lipstick in seduction! 

I've never actually owned a shade like this before, so it's been fun trying it out!  Not sure how well you can see the shade in these photos, but I will be sure to do an up close shot of me wearing the lipstick soon.  Thank you Leeann!  be sure to check out her blog if you haven't already!  She always has such a great post topics! 

I would also like to announce the winner of the CSN $50 gift certificate giveaway! I would also like to thank you CSN for your generosity!

Congrats Hillary!  I will be emailing you shortly for your information!  Thank you to all who entered!  I hope you enjoy the giveaways I've recently been fortunate enough to do.  I also wanted to comment a bit on the subject of giveaways.  It seem to be a popular topic for debate amongst bloggers, so I wanted to share my imput on the subject:
 
 I can see how people use giveaways in excess, and sometimes offer silly items. I, however, like giveaways for the fact that it lets me be able to give something tangable to my dedicated readers that I wouldn't normally be able to. I value my readers so much and I like that in a way I'm able to give something back to them. As for the object of the giveaway, I would only partner up with a company that I myself would shop at or enjoy, or an item that I would actually want myself. I think that if a blogger sets up guidelines for themselves and doesn't offer giveaways as just a way for self-promotion, but instead to reward their readers, they can be a fun thing to do. : )
 
What do you girls think?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Very cute outfit. I love the booties! I hear you, I like warm socks too. I am now your newest follower. xo

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Aw thanks so much for the shout out! You are way too sweet :)

Glad you like it and it looks fantastic on you!

Loving your outfits. I am all about simple looks. I think they are (a lot of the times) more sophisticated. And I LOVE that you wear white socks. I love me some tube socks!! Aren't they comfy?!

LOVE your boots!

LOVE the outfit. With the exception of the ankle boots my outfits have been similar. It's a little cold walking around a college campus all day. I'm wearing the skinny jeans with a lot of sweaters and long sleeve tops. Instead of ankles boots I've just been wearing my regular heels.
Again you look great. Thanks for sharing the outfit pics. Kara XOXO

Those booties are fabulous! And I like that your shirt is simple from the front but a bit edgy from the back!

I almost always think my outfits are simple. lol but a lot of people prob. don't think that.
I am sooo excited to see you in luxurious red lips! You are going to look like a model. I already know.
And I like giveaways.
Do people contact you about giveaways? I've always wondered that...since obviously I don't know since I don't have giveaways on my blog. lol Sometimes I wish I did.

I love your simple/chic outfit. It's so perfect, especially for the winter.

And congreats on winning the lipstick. It's such an amazing colour.

I have to say this outfit looks great on you. You're super slim to begin and the outfit has such a sleek look on you.

I like simple chic outfits and find myself wearing them a lot in fall and winter. It's nice to go to cozy and familiar b/c we can always toss on a cardigan and belt or jacket to sass it up!

xo,

Love this look, Tasha! I adore the boots and the detailing on the back of your top!

I completely agree with you about giveaways. It's best to stick to companies that you actually shop at. Giving away just some random, silly items seems weird to me. As you said, giveaways should be a reward for readers, not merely for promotion.

gangsterpixiestyle said...

Hey! I just realized you are sporting the red lipstick in those pictures! lol Very nice!

Also, I want to add you on FB. You should send me your FB name. :)

Своею неожиданностью и странностью" женщин является довольно виновную: к преступницам ли по страсти или же к врожденным преступницам, так как она принадлежит, по-видимому, к одной и другой из этих категорий одновременно. Как мужчины: их доводят до преступления не дурные страсти, но воля их любовников, для обладать какой-нибудь женщиной, то он привязывал свой многие основные черты.
