As promised I’ve been working on a new giveaway! This giveaway is to celebrate reaching 100 followers on this blog 🙂 When I started this little blog I remember when my friends in the petite community all started following and I was soooo excited!!! I have only one friend IRL that I discuss this blog with on a regular basis so she thought I was pretty funny when I started. I never ever thought I would have 100 readers! It seriously excites me to no end!
For this giveaway I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do. I really wanted to give away something unique and preferably Canadian made.
I had first heard about Dara Dot Designs
while looking at my sister in law’s friend’s photography as she did a shoot for Dara. I loved her stuff but back then I was very hesitant about online shopping. I hadn’t heard about Etsy yet and I didn’t have a pay pal account! Then I stumbled upon Dara’s site again while searching for make up artists in the Toronto area for my friend that was getting married. If it weren’t already meant to be I actually met Dara by fluke at the One of Kind Show
in December. Fast forward to a few weeks back and I signed up for Dara’s mailing list and befriended her on Twitter. I had wanted to buy stuff for myself and a friend of mine so I also picked up a little something as my giveaway. Phew, what a long story LOL!
This is taken off of the Dara Dot Designs website:
Designer, owner and Fashion Design grad, Dara Frydman, fell in love with the idea of applying her design background and use of textiles into her accessories. Incorporating a variety of fibres and skins such as felt, bamboo, leather, stones, and metals; each unique design strikes an eclectic “arts and crafts” feel.
I love her designs because they are simple but very different. And they are so versatile! She is not only a Canadian designer but she is based in Toronto AND she is a fellow petite standing proud at 4’11”!!!! It was totally meant to be 😉
Here are the two items I picked up for myself (and me trying to mimic the different ways wearing the scarves 😛 ):
Dara Dot Designs Ruffle Scarf in Blue/Cranberry Leather
Dara Dot Designs Loop scarf in Cerise
The model does a MUCH better job of showing how to wear the scarves in different ways. Check it out if you have the time:
