S.Elisabeth said...

Merry Christmas Eve! I love love minidresses, probably because I'm short, so they compliment my height better than longer ones.

If I won, I'd buy the blazer (only one there). It looks so perfectly fitted, and I need a black blazer in my life!

Pearl Westwood said...

Panty Buns said...

I like the D & G Ruched Satin Mini Dress. It's a lovely style (I love ruffles and ruching). It looks like it should be tried on first to make sure it fits Some styles have a lot more give than others, but this one's adorable anyway. Thanks for the Christmas wishes, and a very Merry Christmas to you too!

Jessica said...

loving the soft pink ruffles with the leather boots. and that lime green number is to die for!

MizzJ said...

Long live the mini-dress!! I will be very sad when I become too old to wear them as they really are the best thing to happen to short girls since stilettos. That Blumarine option is my favourite, so fun and flirty!

PowerSweepstaking said...

wow, some really short stuff above! Some really great looking legs I'd say are requisite to wearing all of these, if ya got it flaunt it!

Jaime @ laviejaime said...

Great giveaway! Love all the minis here. I love this BB Dakota shirt- My stepsister has and I actually wanted to steal it from her! Now I'd have my own :)
