Category: GiveawaysEyeliah @ 2:30 pm

I am so thankful for all you wonderful readers, you continually make my day and I am so happy you keep visiting, yay! Thank you Thank you Thank you! šŸ™‚ To celebrate You and Style Symmetry’s 900th Post we are doing a Giveaway!

I came up with an awesome giveaway that goes with the thrifty nature of this blog. The giveaway is for ONE of these 5 dresses! Your choice! They are all either thrifted or off ebay and wasting away in my closet. Only one of them has been worn by me!

All you have to do is leave a comment in this post by April 11th stating which dress you want and why! This contest is open world wide so please comment away. Winner will be chosen at random.

Sherbet Striped Dress off ebay & Thrifted beige Sweater Dress with bell sleeves.

This White Nurse Dress I found on ebay can be worn for a medium to xl person, medium needs to belt it, second picture to show how it is bigger and the buttons for the xl fitting. Also has pocket and fun collar to upturn – yay!

Thrifted wrinkle free brown dress, love the bodice & Bright blue colorful batik dress off ebay.
P.S. It is after noon so this is not an April Fools prank!

    How sweet of you to do a give away, I hope I win!!! That sherbert dress is simply amazing, I remember seeing it before and I think it would make me feel fruity and fresh for spring :~)

  2. Wanderlusting says:

    This is a swell idea! I like the sherbert one too lol, I think it would be great with my colouring and I love pastels. The “wrinkle-free” brown dress lol is something I also would wear. I could pair it with my brown boots or sandals and hey, brown always matched my eyes. Plus me loves a ragged hem šŸ™‚ I also live a block away from you… no shipping fees! šŸ˜›

  3. Wanderlusting says:

    PS 900 posts! That’s quite the achievement, bravo!

    Wow! 900 posts! You are one prolific lady! I love it! Also, kudos on not repeating outfits! I aspire to be so stylish!
    I’m lusting after the blue batik dress! I’ll be doing some travelling overseas and I’m on the hunt for fun summer dresses! It looks like a really sweet piece to wear out sightseeing with espadrilles, and at night with a soft cardigan with wood or tortoise buttons! (And maybe a feather hairpiece, for even more whimsy!)

    Congrats again on 900 posts! All the best for 900 more!

  10. rebecca s. says:

    wow 900 posts!? i have a measly 50, or something like that. ha.

    i love that last dress, the batik one. it’s so pretty for summer. i can already see it on the beach, for a nice stroll with my boy.

  11. Danielle says:

    Congrats on 900!!! Wow!!! I love the last one, such a pretty color and pattern šŸ™‚

  12. Lorena Cupcake says:

    Now we can play along with your blog at home!

    I’m so sad I’d probably drown in the nurse dress, but that sherbet stripe dress is super cute.

  13. The Waves says:

    900 posts..! Wow, congratulations! I have my eye on the batik dress… šŸ™‚

  14. The Style PA says:

    I just love the white nurse dress. Wearing white is usually difficult to pull off, but the way you have belted the dress shows that it can be done and it can be a great look. The shape of the skirt is really chic, and it is transformed into a wrap dress by wearing a bigger size than needed.

    It reminds me of when I was a kid and used to go to work with my glamourous auntie who was a dental nurse.

  15. Archibald Maximilion says:

    What a lovely idea. You’ve got to be in to win….so my choice would be the batik one, the colour is stunning!

  16. Mary Jenkins says:

    I’d love the batik dress, and your figure!


  17. artsladivina says:


    Keep the sweater dress: so timeless…
    And it will be $$$ to ship.

    Love the hair, love the pictures, love the attitude.

    PS: Sonjia was asking about you last week: she called me from Germany. She says HI.

  18. Beth says:

    I have been loving your blog for quite some time. I have been working on my own blog but am lacking the necessary ambition and unfortunately, time.

    I adore what you have done with the white dress. I am a minor seamstress and could have a lot of fun with it.

    Keep up the good work!

  19. Rachael says:

    Congrats on 900 posts! I’d love to be in the running for the batik dress, it’s gorgeous.


  20. Sherin says:

    Just stumbled across your blog, and it is great. Oooo, that brown dress is gorgeous.

  21. cat says:

    be entertained

  22. marta says:

    My favorites are the sleeveless brown one, the white one and the beige one. Thanks!

  23. Lauren says:

    900 posts? Impressive!
    I love the beige sweater dress – dreaming up outfits now, it’s terrible isn’t it!

  24. Amie says:

    I’m loving the beige sweater dress. The sleeves are just gorgeous. Congrats on the 900 posts.
    PS – I’m pretty sure I have a dress exactly the same as the brown dress at the bottom. šŸ™‚

  25. Katharine says:

    Congratulations on your 900th post! I so enjoy reading your blog, and I have to admit, I love the music posts at least as much as the outfit ones. (I’m Canadian too, but in Ontario, so when you mention that so-and-so is going to be playing, it’s a heads-up for me.)

    The only dress I could possibly work into my personal style (and which wouldn’t make me look like a mushroom of some kind) is the brown one, so if there’s a contest, that’s my favourite.

    Incidentally – I usually read this blog in IE (at w#rk, shhh!) and did you know that there’s something funny about the way it displays? Very often, the pictures and text float off to the right, and overlap your navigation column.

  26. Kelly says:

    I would choose the last dress, the batik one. I’m trying to build up an arsenal of sundresses!

  27. Christine M. says:

    Lovin’ that Sherbet! Woohoo!

  28. Marge says:

    What a absolutely fabulous Idea. I love the brown dress. I was drawn to your blog because I read that you like to photograph yourself/outfits. I started doing this about 2 months ago. It has been a very telling experiment. Wonder if I will make it to 900 posts? You should be thrilled with yourself.

  29. dearilou says:

    It is a hard choice between the ice cream colored stripes and the batik design, but I think, since Iā€™m totally diggin pastels right now, Iā€™d go with the very first. I am a sucker for stripes.

  30. Missa says:

    Congrats on reaching 900 posts! That’s amazing and thanks for the heads up on the contest too šŸ™‚ I am loving that batik dress for its gorgeous color, amazing pattern, and sense of boho flair!

  31. Ashlee says:

    hi…i found your blog via thrift candy.

    those dresses are lovely.

    i adore the sherbet dress.
    perfect for spring in san francisco.

  32. Carla says:

    I really like them all, but my favorites are the sherbet stripe dress and the tan sweater dress. Congrats on the 900 posts!

  33. Ashe Mischief says:

    As much as the white dress scares me, it’s absolutely stunning. You style it so well that it can’t help but look very sharp.

  34. jesspgh says:

    Congratulations on the 900th post!!! I really love the tan sweater dress. šŸ™‚

  35. Miranda says:

    Congrats on your 900th post! The nurse dress looks great with that red belt. Too bad I lost my thrifted red Danier belt sometime ago šŸ™

  36. Mihal says:

    hey girl, thanks for your comment! i’m tooootally loving the sherbert striped dress. spring/summer’s coming up and the idea of going into forever21 and buying the same summer dresses that everybody else in nyc has makes me wanna cry! unforch on a limited budget, sometimes that’s what it comes to. major congrats on your 900th post!

  37. Lisa says:

    I LOVE the choices… Can I just say that I want the white nurse dress because it’s such a fabulous base to do so many things!!! It’s modest but chic and like a chameleon I can see so many looks with it.. You paired it nicely with the red belt (is that included?! lol… can’t hurt to ask…haha)I’ve been looking for a fun white dress and this fits the bill. Ohhh I love… My close favorite second is the sherbet dress which has colors that I think will pop nicely against my skin tone. Congrats on the 900th post!!!!

  38. Hannele says:

    Hi eyeliah, that’s really sweet of you to invite me to participate in this giveaway, yet, I have, as it is, a tone of dresses that I am not wearing as often as I should…
    Oh and that brown one! you totally rock it! I’m surprised you’re giving it away! šŸ™‚

  39. Shay says:

    ok, count me in! šŸ™‚

  40. Shay says:

    oh! I’ll go for the sweater dress at the top right…

  41. Allison says:

    Wow, thanks Eyeliah! You are so generous for sharing!

    I totally love the batik print dress or the first sherbet-striped dress! both adorable….

  42. Allison says:

    haha… i forgot to say why i want them!! i’ve been looking for the perfect summer beachy dress, one that i could dress up on hot summer nights as well. so far, no luck. although ive tried several dresses lately: dotluv.blogspot.com

    thanks again!

  43. cindee says:

    k! batik dress! why? because the colors are vibrant and the pattern is hip-no-tize-n! that’s why! boomps.

  44. Alison says:

    OK, I’ve got my eye on the blue batik dress. The colours are great, I love the tie detail on the shoulder, and the shape of the skirt looks really flattering. Plus, it makes me think that summer really could be coming!

  45. Elissa of Spandexpony says:

    Thanks for your sweet comment! I love this contest! I have to say that I really like the blue batik one– I keep a coterie of outrageously psychedelic dresses for the hothot summer. Perfectly exemplifies brain-melting heat! šŸ˜‰

  46. elena says:

    first conrgats! yay! you are doing wonderfully !!

    which? the Sherbet Striped Dress!!

    why? i think its the only one i can really wear! well that fits or i can make fit i guess i should say! im really short and although the batik is so gorgeous and i would love it i just think i couldnt makeit work on me and the stipes are just too good to pass up šŸ™‚

    yay what a fun thing to dofor your readers šŸ™‚

  47. rain says:

    Hey …congratulations with your 900th post (now > 900 post) I think the white dress suits you really well! So why give it away?

    I hope to win your first dress: Sherbet Striped Dress. Perfect to wear in the summer!

  48. Chekka Cuomova says:

    WOW WOW 900 posts! hold a sec, how do you count it? :p and how nice of you to do giveaway. kudos to you šŸ˜€

    okay, I’m in love with the Sherbet Striped Dress from the first sight because it reminds me of Lily Allen dress. and if I won that dress, it’d be such a fantastic birthday gift šŸ˜‰

  49. anntje says:

    The Sherbet Striped Dress is adooorable. Perfect color combination and shape. Reminds me of the good old days when clothes were comfortable!
