Shen Dove Style: Silvery Holiday Look + Giveaway {Closed}

Silvery Holiday Look + Giveaway {Closed}

Hi Friends! Burlington Coat Factory contacted me about participating in a holiday style challenge. As a girl on a budget, I am quite familiar with the store.  They provided me with a $100 gift card to create a holiday look and also gave me a second $100 giftcard to raffle to you lovely readers!

I went to a nearby Burlington in Maryland and perused the store for my items. I was a little nervous about finding shoes that fit me but I managed to find a pair in my size. I basically built my outfit around my shoes and came up with a New Year’s eve look. The skirt is a bit shorter than what I’d normally wear, but overall, I like the look. I had my heart set on adding a topper of some sort to my look, but didn’t see one that worked with the pieces I picked.

I haven't decided what I'm wearing yet -- sequins are a good idea.  I have a gray tank with sequins, or a bright blue tank and sweater with sequins. I have black velvet pants.  I think I'll be good to go in those.

Honestly when i saw the assembly i was a bit scared cause i was worried that u might not pull the look off because they seem a bit shiny but OMG u look so amazing and i sincerely believe they cost under a $100 dollar because i get great deals for $100 and less all the time at BCF

Awesome giveaway! So cool that they invited you to do this! I love Burlington! One of my favorite stores to shop in. For Christmas I plan on wearing a sequin sparkly green top, and red wrap. For New Year's I'm still on the hunt for a dress. I followed them on Twitter and was already following on Facebook.

That is a great outfit from Burlington. I don't go in there enough, I'll admit! I like and followed. Since Christmas is on Sunday, I plan on wearing a hat, well a sequined beret that I haven't ever worn or maybe these BBW earrings I have.:)

I want to enter this draw so bad - I LOVE YOUR SKIRT!!! - but alas, I don't think there is a Burlington Coat Factory in Halifax, NS.

You look fantastic though, I love this look.

I love this look! Especially the sequined skirt, but the top is awesome too. I love feather print. I'm traveling, so I'm planning on wearing some versatile neutrals with bold jewelry. I'm in Arlington tonight, too bad I'm leaving early tomorrow morning because I'd love to meet up with you in person!

Thanks lady! That's so funny that you'll be in the DC area tonight, I'll be in NYC this evening to see a show, but I'm coming right back : )  We'll have to coordinate a meet-up in 2012 for sure.

I love all the pieces you picked. I think they make a great outfit!  I don't usually shop at Burlington, but I will check them out.  This holiday season I am into sweaters so I have a couple of sweater dresses I plan on wearing.

It was nice and warm, so I wore a patterned black and white skirt, black shrug, and black tee. Appropriate for both partying and church (I went out on the 1st, not the 31st :).
