to you, from me.

Just 49 short days ago, I finally took the plunge...I created a blogger account and started {long distance loving}. Since then, I've written 45 {now 46} posts and managed to find 98 of you {at last count} who care to read what I write. 

To celebrate my almost 50th post, I want to give something back to you. Each and every one of you enrich my life on a daily basis. The last eight weeks have brought me so much happiness...due {in large part} to all of you--so please consider what I'm about to share a little thank-you gift! 

To you, from me--{av}:
 $50 to Rent the Runway
{Yes. I said $50.} 
Why? Because you're worth it!

I professed my love of this website a few weeks ago...
and I want you to be able to enjoy it too!


How do you enter, you ask? First things first, you must be a follower of this blog. From there, you need to leave a comment below--reminding me you're a follower and telling me what dress you would pick with your winnings. {I'd also need your email address if it isn't listed somewhere on your blog.} You have until Sunday, January 9th to enter! I can't wait to see what dresses you all pick--I only wish I could give each and every one of you the chance to use on Rent the Runway on my dime. Sadly, I'm not a highroller!

Here's one of my new favorites, from Shoshanna, the "It's Your Birthday" Dress! Fun, right? I'm not normally a pink girl, but this one calls my name. 
Too bad my birthday isn't until May ;)

Just so you know, you can get extra entries in a couple of ways: first, you can get two extra entries by letting your blog readers know about this giveaway and, second, you can get one extra entry by getting the word out via twitter {I just joined--it's still in development, but you can follow me here!}. To have your extra entries count, you'll need to email me at {longdistanceloving at gmail dot com}.
At the end of the day, just know this:  
each of you bring me so much joy and love, 
so thank you from the bottom of my heart! 
Much love to you--and enjoy! 
xoxo {av}


Here is the fine print: This giveaway closes on Sunday, January 9th at 6:00PM EST. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced on Sunday night at 8:00PM EST.  There is a maximum of 4 entries per person {max would be one comment, one blog mention, and one tweet.} Unfortunately, it is open only to my followers in the United States. Rent the Runway only ships within the USA, so don't blame me ;) {I promise to have a giveaway in the future which would suit your fancy if you live outside of the States.} If you have any other questions, please contact me!

  13. oh my gosh I love this! I always look at rent the runway but never get anything cause I get scared. my latest obsession is the Badgley Mischka 'New York Wonder' dress. Red is one of my favorite colors and I LOVE the one shoulder!

    And it's $50 so it would be perfect with the gift card! :)

  14. I had no idea you were such a new blogger-your work is certainly better than mine was in the first 50 days!

    This giveaway is absolutely fabulous, and I've now officially spent far too much time at work drooling. The Proenza Schouler Katie Accordion Dress is drop dead, the Blugirl Sequin Surprise dress is divine and it's hard to resist the Black Halo Red Jackie O dress for Valentine's Day!
