I put a spell on you.

[dudes. giveaway action. thassright. read on.]

[Elizabeth & James kimono jacket + Seven jeans I cut off + Jeffrey Campbell Sonoma clogs + T by A Wang tank + Robyn Rhodes necklace + Seventh Door sunglasses and leather cuff bracelet—which is hiding under my sleeve, and being given away below!]

It’s pretty bogus that I’ve had this jacket since 2 Christmases ago and have only worn it a handful of times. I think I just like to see it hanging there, and pet it from time to time. But this is the third time I’ve worn it in a week, so consider it resurrected, like Shelley Long in Hello Again! If only I could also resurrect her career…

This is odd: I keep typing something then deleting it. I suck at blogging right now. I think my recent haircut has rendered me powerless, all my humor chopped away like Samson’s post-trim pectoral deflation. So instead of more inane babbling, I have a better idea!

[All hand-painted on the silk, pretty radical.]

A freaking giveaway! This is courtesy the lovely people at Seventh Door. I couldn’t resist when I saw this amazing leather cuff bracelet—I have a serious leather cuff weakness and a monster collection to show for it. This one is supremely edgy and I’ve been wearing it with everything lately, even a pencil skirt and blouse to a business meeting recently. It’s refined and makes a bold statement at the same time.

Here she is:

Now the nuts and bolts of entering:

1) follow Seventh Door on Twitter
become a fan of Seventh Door on Facebook
3) leave a comment below with your email address

Giveaway ends July 7! Good luck! Eli loves you! Just kidding, he wants to bite your face off! What?! I don’t know!

Open to international peeps, too! Speaking of feathers, this is one of my very, very favorite Black Crowes songs of all times. I once listened to it for 3 hours straight on a drive from New Mexico to New Orleans while my passenger slept off a hangover. It’s that good.

    Aaawww – 2 little girls (ages 2&3….both aspiring fashionista’s of course) will keep you busy!! Of course the glass of wine I pour at 7PM every night certainly eases the pain!

    so jeffrey campbell makes those clogs? how are they comfort wise (i know, i know beauty is pain but not for a nyc commuter à pied)? LOVING them with the cut-offs.

      they are super smooshy inside. I wore them to the Yanks game and my dogs didn’t start barking until like hour 3, but I did acquire a blister. Gone now.

      I highly recommend them. Much less risk of biting it than those other monsters.

        yay! thanks!

    Oh snap, as I typed out the first letters of this comment, Black Crowes came on my itunes. And yes, I would totes wear that to Paramore. All the 12-yr-olds would be jel.

    Love you, and your style…..

    Does this cuff help feed children in third world countries like your rubbery turquoise bangles do? If so, awesome; If not, I still want it. You already talked me into that orange band, so I think it’s only fitting to add this one to the leather party in my jewelry drawer. Plus, the fact that I’m also suffering from an overly ambitious haircut has to count for something. Apparently “an inch” sounds very similar to “three inches.”

    whoooo love this outfit, that jacket looks so comfy and perfect for summer nights – not to mention Jeffrey Campbell shoes FTW, there’s at least one design I immensely covet each season.
