Clothes I Covet

Happy Monday!

Welcome everyone who came as a result of my Keep What You Covet Close Blog Tour stop! Fourteen days until Coveted comes out!

And now the fun part! Rafflecopter has chosen the winners for the Lucky in Love booksigning giveaway. Congrats to the winners! *happy dance*

WINNERS (based on the order Rafflecopter picked you):

Sheila Eyre - Dying Wish by Shannon Butcher
JessS - Taking a Shot by Jaci Burton
Jane - Wedded in Scandal by Jade Lee
Chris Bails - Bound in Darkness by Alexandra Ivy

Winners, send me an email with your mailing address so I can send your goodies. I'll be attending RT this week so it might be next week before I send them your way.

Naturally, I have another giveaway today! But it's for a copy of Coveted. :D This giveaway is US and Canada only though. I do have an international giveaway of Coveted going on at Book Chick City. It ends on Wednesday. Go check it out. Go ahead. I'll wait for you. ;)

For my blog tour stop this week, I'm talking about one of my guilty pleasures:shopping online for vintage clothing. In Coveted, Nat is a hoarding werewolf who loves a classic wardrobe. Due to her OCD, she prefers--or should I say--feels more comfortable wearing the same types of clothes everyday: a classic pencil skirt and blouse. If you look at the cover, you'll see her in her favorite outfit.

I love pencil skirts! Especially the high-waist ones. I actually wore them in high school a lot. (Yes, I was one of those girls who loved to dress up whenever one was perfectly happy in jeans. I was a girlie girl for a hot second there. Let's not talk about freshman year though... I had the tomboy thing going.) Check out this red pencil skirt at Pin Up Girl clothing. Whoa.

I love browsing ModCloth for clothes. A lot of the prices are out of the range that I'd pay, but if I wanted to hoard some skirts, this would be in my top five:

1. Classic Pencil Skirt.
Oh the wicked things I could do with some heels or a pair of boots. ;)

2. The blue in this skirt just pops beautifully.

3. I'm a sucker for something this adorable. Le sigh.

4. I love prints! If I can get a good deal for a White House Black  Market outfit, I'm a happy gal.
5. The buttons on the skirt are too cute.

See anything that looks good? If I really wanted one, which one would you pick? Let me know in a comment below.

I have a busy week ahead of me since I'm heading to the RT Convention in Chicago. Since that is such a huge affair, I might just have to bring back some goodies to share with my friends. :D

Just in case you don't win the copy I offer today, for those of you on Goodreads, I have a giveaway of 3 copies of Coveted coming as well. It opens for entries on Wednesday. There will be another giveaway at Magic & Mayhem Writers this week as well.

Okay, time to stuff some corsets and things into my suitcase. Have a good week everyone.

I'm a sucker for pencil skirts, too! I love the traditional black, high-waisted skirt, but I also love the white and black one you have pictured here! Very feminine!

Have fun at RT!

I'd pick number 1.

Number 5! The pink with the buttons is too cute. Have fun at RT

Jane said...

I like number 1 and 3 the most. Thanks so much. Have fun in Chicago.

Sharon said...

wow, those are fabulous! I would say the black pencil, but I am tempted to go with the solid blue... Have a safe and productive trip! oh and have fun too ;)

BW said...

I would pick Number 3.

Na said...

I really like the pencil skirts but #4 really calls to me. The flower print is so feminine and reminds me Spring. It still has the look of a pencil skirt with the slight flare. Adorable!

Tina B said...

Hard decision. It would probably depend on the look you are trying to go for. Since I am feeling a little girly today, I pick #3. It is versatile due to it being black and it is frilly. :)
I do love the red (leather?) one from Pin Up Girl though.

Thanks for all the recommendations, everyone. I'll pick a winner from the comments at noon CST. Just a few more hours. :D
