Curiouser and curiouser!

I love, love, love this photoshoot based on Alice in Wonderland by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue USA 2003 with model Natalia Vodianova. In each shot, the Designer who made the dress she's wearing is posing as one of the story's character... I particularly like Vikot&Rolf as Tweedledum & Tweedledee!

Wow! I am really amazed at the great response so far to my giveaway! Thank you all for participating:)
It seems that so far The Beauty and the Beast is your big favourite, closely followed by Cinderella.

Regaring the "rules", I thought I would precise a few points:
* Yes, for your entry to be valid, you MUST tell me which is your favourite item in my shop AND what is your favourite fairy tale. Otherwise your comment will not be taken into account, sorry!
* If you are already following my blog or decide to follow it, you get an additional entry ( leave a separate comment telling me)
* If you are already a fan on facebook or decide to become one, you get an additional entry (leave a separate comment telling me)
* Another additional entry if you blog, twiter or facebook about it.

Sorry if it is too many rules, but it wouldn't be a fun contest otherwise, would it?:)

A Giveaway!!!

Hey hey giveaway time my friends! Let's celebrate my 100th sale on Etsy!
So the lucky winner will receive the Spring garden Gigi purse ($42), with free shipping of course!
To enter: leave a comment telling me which is your favourite item from my shop and what is your favourite fairy tale (yes I was inspired by my last post !). Sorry, you need to answer those2 questions for your entry to be valid!
For an additional entry,you can either twitter, facebook, or blog about this giveaway and come back here and comment with the link. And for another extra entry, just follow this blog in clicking the "follow" box on the right and write about it in a new comment.
The giveaway will end Saturday, January 30th at midnight GMT and I'll pick a winner the following day.

Now what about my favourite fairy tale? I would say that Cinderella participated to my dream of becoming a fashion Designer, and I was completely fascinated by the Fairy with Turquoise Hair in Pinocchio so I'd say they are both my favourites... Of course, if you count Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as a fairy tale, then IT is my favourite!!!


As  Made'moiselle remarks it's true I should add a french version for all my french speaking readers:) 

Alors voilà:

Pour célébrer ma 100e vente sur Etsy, j'organise un petit concours dont le prix est le porte-monnaie ci-dessus.

Pour participer:

Écrire un commentaire en me disant quel est votre article préféré dans ma  boutique ainsi que votre conte de fée préféré.
Pour des entrées additionnelles: écrire sur ce concours sur votr blog, compte facebook ou compte twitter, et/ou s'inscrire sur mon blog avec l'icône "follow" à droite.

Voilou! Quant à moi, je n'ai pas un conte de fée préféré, je dois avouer... Autant Cendrillon me faisait rêver de devenir Styliste ou Costumière, autant j'étais fascinée par la Fée aux cheveux bleus dans Pinocchio... Mais si on compte Alice aux Pays des Merveilles comme un conte de fée, alors là, c'est celui-la mon préfèré!!
