chickdowntown contest!

hi everyone!

i spent a little longer than i expected wandering around the west village. good lord, it's hot out there. one of those days when any kind of activity, including eating and thinking, seem out of the question. i'm back now, though, and finally prepared to unveil the contest!

chickdowntown, purveyors of such fine designers as Sir Alistair Rai and BB Dakota Clothing, have offered me a chance to give something away to my lovely readers. anything you choose from the bb dakota collection could be yours! of course, i'm not eligible for the contest, but if i was. . .



follow chickdowntown on twitter or become a fan on facebook!

i love the madmen-ish quality of these dresses. very joan holloway.



so, what would you choose? simply leave a comment (any comment at all) and i'll pick a winner a week from today. good luck!

  4. Choose one thing from BB Dakota? Thats not easy...

    But I'm loving the Tangerine Laurie skirt and the Purple Mansfield Dress, they are both flattering silhouettes, office appropriate, and pack an awesome punch of color for fall. Very cute.

  5. I like the pfeiffer (sp?) skirt. I bet it is not named after Michelle--it doesn't seem like her style--so maybe Jules? but it makes me think of my friend's Dad from L.A. and how Michelle Pfeiffer used to shop at his grocery store and he had a big crush on her, which makes me laugh.

  6. I love these dresses almost as much as I love "Madmen." I would feel like a sexy secretary in one of these dresses.

    I enjoy your style very much-- especially all the bold colours.

  11. I would definitely pick the 'Battalion Jacket in Black'. This is the jacket of the season, yet at the same time it is very versatile and would work as a great staple in my closet. You could dress it down in jeans, and up in a great mini dress and heals.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi, Audrey-- I like your picks, too, but if you choose me OF course I'd love the vintage Valentino (haha!). Since I have nowhere to WEAR vintage Valentino, though, I'd go for the gorgeous Garden Party Bubble Dress in the vintage section. I'm already wearing it-- in my head! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love those dresses... so retro, yet classic!! Fingers crossed... =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. i would like to win. thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i would totally pick the twilight jacket in the silver colour, so cute for when it's not 1000 degrees out (soon?)!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The battalion jacket! It's a statement piece. I dress monochromatic and plain,but this jacket would help make all my fall outfits more interesting. I'm kind of a jacket whore. I even used to have a white BB Dakota jacket a few years back. It served me well...

    ReplyDelete
  30. oo audrey, i just love the purple marilyn dress...so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  31. They're all gorgeous, and a beautiful canvas to accessorize on. I particularily love the purple, stands out in a subtle sophisticated way, but of course the orange is unique and a beautiful tone. :)

  41. http://www.chickdowntown.com/viewproduct.asp?ID=148614

    the cherry coat. one time, my mom bought me a horrible alpaca wool brown winter coat and i couldn't say i didn't like it, because it was a gift. i am stuck with it, and i have always dreamed and dreamed of a cherry colored winter coat that would make me stand out brightly as i trudged to work in the mornings.

    plus, the coat reminds me of a children's book i read when i was little about a mother who makes her daughter a coat for winter. she takes her to a man who has sheep, and she buys the wool. then she takes the wool to be dyed and on and on until it becomes a bright cherry red coat. i am sentimental. and i like bright colors. and you.
