SLIDER

Stormchaser + Crash & Burn Giveaway!

Outfit Details:   Dress: c/o Crash & Burn   Necklace: Macys   Bag: Rue 21   Ring: Forever 21   Beanie: Claires   Boots: Target



I've shown you a couple of Crash and Burn's items here and here. But I'm pretty sure out of all the items, this Rosemont dress has got to be my favorite. It's tie-dyed, long sleeved, of a light material, and has gorgeous shades of blue and grey in it.
Although I'm sorry to my international readers, right now this giveaway is only for US residents right now.
You like it? Well read on, because you have a chance to win it for yourself!


This dress comes from Crash and Burn's spring 2012 line, which is filled with some more amazing options. I've got to say, tie dye is their trade mark. And the best part? All of their tie-dye and washes are distinct novelty washes, meaning not one dress comes out the same! They have gorgeous blouses, dresses, and bottoms that have a pattern like this. And it's not in-your-face-70's style tie-dye. No, its got a subtle edge to it that I love! In their about section, they describe their clothes as: "crafted on basic but specific principles: clean lines, edgy designs, and high quality fabrics."



And I can personally tell you their description is accurate!


So now that I have free reign to dress the way I want for college, I'm already mentally making outfits that I'd wear. This is one of them! I love that the dress is beautiful but can still work for a casual setting.
Well...in my mind it does at least.


Although for my small town, this is way too dressed up.
But in case you can't tell, I've pretty much ignored the silent rule of our town that says the dress code is: jeans + t-shirt + sneakers.
I just hope others don't think I'm dressing this way for attention. The honest truth is that I like these clothes and I want to wear them. Not to attract stares! I'm doing this for myself.
One of the sites I visit regularly has a fantastic post called 25 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up Everyday and it's what inspired me to break these unwritten social rules. Check it out!



So last weekend, my friend Sadie graduated and afterwards we went in a small group to watch a late movie and eat out. Guess what we saw?
The Avengers!
Haha, I was so excited. I've been wanting to see that for forever!
Now that I finally have, there was only one problem...



Deciding which superhero is hottest!
I finally came to the conclusion that a mix of Thor and Iron Man would be perfect. Because I'm very attracted to Thor's build, but hello, Iron Man's attitude and wit are just as sexy!
Haha, what did you think of the movie and which superhero was your favorite? :)


So, from seeing it in these photos, did you fall in love with this dress as well?
 Enter below for a chance to win it for yourself!
And for those who entered the Dark Horse giveaway, I will be announcing the winner in the next post. So stay tuned!

love the dress! the dip dye looks so funky. as for the hottest superhero...he wasn't a superhero but I was massively attracted to Loki haha. Next would probably be Thor, if he had Ironman's brain LOL

That is so cool how the dresses are not all the same pattern of tie-dye! The dress is gorgeous, and I LOVE how you styled this outfit. All the little boho touches like the necklace and fringe bag looks great with the dress :)

YAY FOR SEEING AVENGERS IT'S SO AMAZING
Haha it's impossible to choose a favourite... Captain America's ass was perfection, but Stark was hilarious and Thor was adorable.
Wahhhhh too difficult haha

WHAT I WOULD GIVE to win this dress (pick me prettty pleaase?:P) :) sooo sooo pretty. And I just LOVE TIE DYE! it helps that it looks perfect on you linda!!! Your looks are getting better and BETTER! Do you find that your style is improving from blogging? I know mine sure is--seeing myself in a picture helps me know what sort of stuff looks good on me and what doesnt. I can't tell you how many times I've taken pictures before I leave my house, see that the outfit is not what I thought, and than changed. It's so helpful! And shaping me to be more stylish :) Can't wait to see your summer style! :D
