birthday bash, day three: mabel and zora

{Entries now closed, but thanks for looking!}

Welcome to Day Three of our big Birthday Bash here at Shopping’s My Cardio! Do we know how to party, or what? If you’re late to the fΓͺte, we’re celebrating the blog’s fifth birthday – sniff, it’s all grown up. Naturally, there had to be presents – five of them, to be precise (because I so love numerical symmetry). And trust me, these are presents you won’t be sneaking off to return.

I can personally attest to how lovely today’s giveaway is, because it’s currently hanging in my closet. I walked into Mabel and Zora two weeks ago, spied it, tried it on, and wouldn’t let it out of my clutches. Can you see why?

Now, this particular shop is always my first stop for a new dress – their selection is always flawless. So it was no surprise that I’d fall in love with something. But this particular pretty -the Belle dress – was actually designed by M&Z owner (and sweet sponsor of ShoppingsMyCardio) Tiffany Bean, and it’s one of the most flattering frocks I’ve found in ages. It’s a faux-wrap jersey dress, so it has all of the figure-enhancing appeal of a wrap, without the wardrobe malfunction potential (I think we’ve all been there). And I am so head over heels for the print, there are no words. It’s a beautiful Missoni-esque zigzag (and you know how I love a good zigzag), in the most beautiful combo of moss green, pink and vibrant turquoise. It’s a no-brainer for work, gorgeous for a date night…you just can’t miss.

It retails for $138, which feels like a serious bargain as it is. But free is so much nicer, don’t you agree? Tiffany knew I fell hard for this dress, so she sweetly offered to let me give one away for our Big Birthday Bash – how exciting! In the size of your choice, of course.
