And I subscribed to their newsletter!

Congratulations, gals. Please send us an email right away to claim your gift card. Thanks to all who entered, and thanks to William Riera for all the prettiness!

Summer hasn’t even really started yet and already my calendar is filling up with special events. So much for the “lazy days.”  Weddings, graduations, and all other manner of warm weather soirees require careful dressing. Just formal enough, but also comfy and flattering and, of course, gorgeous. William Riera USA wants to make sure you are dressed to thrill, so they are giving away two $50 gift cards this week to help you put together the perfect summer ensemble. Two winners! The hard part will be choosing from their beautiful dresses and fab accessories.

Maybe you’ll choose the Jane, as shown on the model above. It’s probably my favorite out of the entire collection. I’d add a chunky colorful necklace and a pair of wedge sandals. Perfection.

Or perhaps the Anne? That color is gorgeous. Put on some sparkly earrings and saucy heels, and turn some heads. Plus, a girl can never go wrong with a bit of ruching.

Wanna win?
