My Very First Giveaway!

I love the giveaways that I see on other blogs so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon. Afterall, I'm constantly thrifting lots of fun things and I can't keep them all for myself!

Up for grabs is what I'm calling the "Camel-Colored-Combo" (say that three times fast). Its a vintage scarf and a little clutch, both in a lovely shade of camel, one of my favorite neutrals.

The clutch is 100% leather and has such a classic style, but the diagonal lines add a little bit of 80s style.

I LOVE this scarf. Isn't it so perfectly retro? It's 56" long, so it can be used as a belt by everyone from an XS to a 3X. It also makes a fantabulous head scarf and can even be used to spice up your home decor! Personally, I think this scarf is practically perfect.

So... here's the deal. There are three ways to enter the giveaway- and you can do all three! This giveaway is open to absolutely anyone.

1. Leave a comment below- you can say whatever you want, but I would love to hear a little bit about you!

2. Re-blog, re-tweet, or creatively pass on the word about the giveaway. Just be sure to post a second comment with a link.

3. Visit Green Violet Vintage (my Etsy shop) and let me know what your favorite item is by posting a comment about it. This would really help me out, I want to make sure I'm finding items that all you fashionable people are interested in!

Whew! Well, that's all the info! I hope to make giveaways a permanent part of the blog, so I hope this one goes well.

And, as my roomate would say, "Best wishes to you and yours"!
