SARAH SEVEN DRESS GIVEAWAY | … Believe it. {Potentially our raddest fashion-focused giveaway ever?}

THIS IS HAPPENING.

Yes, you read that title right. Sarah Seven is giving one very, very, very, very lucky Knotty reader A WHOLE DRESS, which will be custom fit to that very, very, very, very lucky Knotty body. Hehe. ”Knotty body.”

Ok, see that dress up above? That’s Sarah’s Powdered Sugar frock, and it’s kind of the cutest thing in the world if you ask me. It’s ALSO one of the two dress choices you have for this giveaway. Aaaaahhhhhh! I know! Ok, wanna see the other one?

That’s the White As Snow.

Here they are, side by side, for maximum covetability…

OMGHOWAREYOUGOINGTOPICK?!

Oh right, that reminds me… as if getting one of Sarah’s killer creations wasn’t enough… you, as the winner, get to PICK WHICH ONE YOU WANT. The Powdered Sugar, or the White As Snow. Can you believe that? It’s a lot to swallow, I know. But try to let it sink in, because it’s a true story. :)

Sarah’s Powdered Sugar Dress is made of sparkle organza fabric, and is ”pleated to middle with puff bottom.” Gotta love those puff bottoms. This is the good kind of puff bottom… not the brand new puppy kind of *puff* bottom ☚ the latter kind tends to be stinky, as I’ve been finding out with this little guy in my lap. Seriously, it’s like this puppy eats Taco Bell or something.

Sarah’s White As Snow Dress is made of silk chiffon, and is “pleated to middle top with one side drape and flutter on the other.” Flutter is one of my top 25 favorite words. And to have a flutter on a dress? LE. SIGH.

There are multiple ways to enter!

1. Leave a comment on this blog post telling us which one you love more, if you can even decide! Yeah, I know, so easy. P.S. – no pressure; you can pick either one, regardless of what you’ve stated in the comments if you end up winning. :)

2. If you’re on Twitter, receive an extra entry by tweeting the below (tell us you’ve tweeted, by leaving an extra blog comment):

5. Extra entry if you start following @SarahSeven on Twitter. :)

This giveaway will remain open until Friday, April 15th @ 9AM, PST

Important notes: Everyone is eligible to enter. Yes, you can enter multiple ways, and yes, they will count as multiple entries. If you decide to enter in more ways than just leaving a comment on this post, then, with each separate type of entry (Twitter, Facebook Like, blogging the giveaway, posting on Facebook), you must leave a separate comment telling us what that entry was (if you’ve gone ahead and liked us on FB, leave a comment telling us. If you tweeted the giveaway, that’s another comment. Same with reposting the link to this blog post on your own blog. Get it? Got it? Good!)…
