Whether this wintry weather is making you realize that you don’t have enough warm clothes or that spring is coming soon, it’s time for ALAMODEST to host another giveaway!
AMI Clubwear is giving away a $50 gift card to buy ANYTHING from their store! Since their prices are mostly under $50, I’d say that’s most things on their website! Although AMI Clubwear has “clubbing” type clothing, you’ll be surprised at the selection of non-clubwear. I posted photos of some cute things I found on their website above.
What girl doesn’t like shoes? Before the summer ends, you could win a free pair of shoes from CityPisces this month! Above are just a few of my favorites from CityPisces’ website. They have one of the most affordable prices online for really cute shoes—so if you don’t win, you could always get yourself a pair for super cheap! ;-)
From the creators of the Art Deco inspired bat wing/cocoon jackets from my previous post, comes the Look of Lux giveaway! Battise Fashions is giving away an iPad case cover worth $139 (1st prize) and a cellphone case cover worth $69 (2nd prize), both made with recycled mink and a $25 Amazon gift card (3rd prize).
If you weren’t around the holidays on a la Modest last year, TrendyLegs gave away gorgeous printed tights to some of you reading this blog. I have above a collection of some of my favorites from them. There seems to be one comprehensive place to get all kinds of printed tights, and that is—TrendyLegs. I haven’t seen one cheesy design. Wouldn’t you want to own a pair or ten?
While I was looking for comfy gel inserts a while back, I landed on these things called shoe lifts. They’re inserts with heels! Having these can transform your shoes into wedges, which is a really neat thought. Here are the different kinds you’ll see being sold and the type of shoe they’re best for.
The goal of shoe lifts are to add height and create a more slender look to your legs while keeping the heel a secret. You can only really wear them with flat shoes—sneakers, ballet flats, etc. Every flat shoe is different though, so it’s not a guarantee that shoe lifts will fit just any flat shoe. You’ll have to do some trial and error.
I’m giving the following kinds of shoe lifts their own names, but you may see them named as something else elsewhere. You’ll just have to remember what they look like. They can come in different colors, materials, and styles. Although shoe lifts come in one size, you need to keep in mind that the pairs are different for men and women.
These are the most common kinds:
1) Heel Only Stackable
These shoe lifts go from your heel to about a couple of inches into the center of your sole (Twilight Zone music cue). You should get these heel-only inserts with three stacks at most. There might be pairs out there with more, but you’ll have to be really lucky to manage stuffing them in your tennis shoes.
2) Whole Foot Stackable / Non-Stackable
These inserts look more like your regular pair of shoe inserts, because they cover your whole sole. They are different from your regular inserts, because they have detachable heels. You can cut the tips to fit your feet.
These guys come with somewhat rounder and smoother surfaces, so that they can be discreet inside your socks while being worn as is without your shoes on. I’ve worn these at house parties that required guests to remove their shoes with no problem. They don’t make a noise when you walk around. You can also wear these inside your shoes, because I personally think they are the most comfortable kind. The red pair I have above are more like sock inserts, because they are smoother and not too high. The more common sock insole looks like this.
So now that you know what these are, who wants to get a FREE set of stackable inserts for men & women from Lift Height Insoles valued at $70+? Just follow the instructions below, making sure you do the two required methods of entry. I will be checking & deleting the entries that are not done, potentially disqualifying you from the contest. There will be multiple winners! Open to all. Contest ends 9/14.
See anything you like? The winners of this giveaway will get to pick ANY item from above! Also, one winner will get a $100 gift card from the people who register on their site through the giveaway.
