Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

The time has come to announce the winner of the amazing five bamboo giveaway. Thank you so much to those of you who entered for your amazing comments; I was blown away! It was tricky to pick a winner, but I especially loved one of the styling suggestions...

Emily (of the other emily) wrote, "One of my favorite things to wear as the weather warms up is a bright dress, so I'd definitely start with the Artemis dress in Papaya. I think it would look great with a pair of cognac boots (with gray knee-socks peeking over the top), a braided leather belt, and a chunky gold necklace - all topped off with the signature messy blogger bun, of course." An easy dress, necklace and boots was just what I was in the mood for this weekend, for a lazy day of farmer's market, seeing Bridesmaids with friends, and tacos eaten on the front porch so I did the best that I could with Emily's suggestion (minus the blogger bun because my hair was clean for once yesterday :).
It was so kind of you all to enter and share your terrific styling suggestions--I will surely be mooching off them for months. And I have to give an honorary second-place to Maggie's amazing entry, which knocked my socks off.
P.S. Don't forget that you can still get 20% off anything you like at five bamboo with the discount code: sustainablenerds (among my favorites are the mini and the elusive dress).

I'm new to your blog and I absolutely love this!! I'm still looking for the perfect boots.. sigh.

I'm also going to school and working full time and I find it difficult to find time to still look cute. Most mornings I just throw on the first thing that catches my eye and throw my hair in a bun & I'm out the door!

Love it, so cute. It's too bad five bamboo's sizing chart tab is blank or I'd definitely be ordering this dress!

kelsey--yes, i thought it was funny! a bit chaotic but some wonderful physical comedy.

I think the color of this Bamboo dress looks very pretty on you! I like the messy bun look, it completes the outfit.

Wasn't Bridesmaids amazing? I just loved Kristen and Maya together. Hilarious!

Maggie said...

Congrats to Emily. I love the outfit - great choice!! The brown and that shade of red look really good together.

And thanks for the honorary mention. :) I had fun coming up with the outfit!

That dress is a-mazing (and sold out in my size, boo).

Louise said...

That dress looks incredibly comfy, but not sloppy. Kudos! You are gorgeous!

love that color! but: i vote for tucking the belt around a bit more (it looks a little ..i can't say it.. phallic!)

Hurricanes12 said...

Is that the papaya colored dress? Maybe my screen is playing tricks on me but it looks so different than the color over on the 5 Bamboo website.

anonymous--it's the raspberry red one. definitely very different than papaya!
