Erstwilder Christmas // GIVEAWAY

Monday, December 1, 2014

We've teamed up with Erstwilder (last post here) to play Santa Clause for ten (10) of our readers in a giveaway!  We'll provide more details at the end of the post, but ten lucky ladies will be able to win a brooch of their choice from Erstwilder's Summer 2014 collection.  We're going to show y'all how we styled our favorites.

Erstwilder Brooches are the ultimate statement piece and they can take a plain outfit and add some much needed pizazz.  I spent seriously an hour looking at Erstwilder's new Summer collection and had the hardest time picking out the perfect pieces to fit my personality and wardrobe.  Ultimately, I chose Trixie Bunny Honey, Frilly Billy and Ruby the Red, because I knew I had clothes that they would match and because they're all so much fun!  It would be so hard to choose a favorite, because they all have their own personalities, but Frilly Billy totally reminds me of a dinosaur from Jurassic Park so he has my heart.  I'll be styling the Señor Santa Hat soon--unfortunately my local post office is awful so he didn't make this post, but I know I'll have him by Christmas. 

Like Amelia said, when we got ahold of the Summer 2014 catalogue, we spent exorbitant amounts of time sending brooch photos back and force trying to decide which ones we wanted.  My last few Erstwilder brooches have been a bit busier, so I decided I'd pick a couple patterned and a couple solids.  I ended up choosing Frond Fox (y'all... he has LITTLE BEES ON HIM), Kat Cat, Porridge the Poodle and Señor Santa Hat to adorn my Christmas dress. I went ahead and assembled a collage of all Erstwilder's Summer 2014 designers so you ladies can have a peek (they can also be found on Erstwilder's Pinterest page or their website):

ERSTWILDER


So, like we mentioned earlier, because we were lucky enough to get to choose brooches we love, we + Erstwilder wanted to play Santa Claus and give y'all the chance to do the same.  So, to enter the giveaway for a chance to be one of ten ladies to win a brooch of your choice from Erstwilder's Summer '14 collection, see the widget below!

To clarify on how to enter via Instagram:  You can find the image below the widget or on mineAmelia's Instagrams.  Tag @modernjunecleaver OR @ameliajetson and @ErstwilderOfficial ALSO #ErstwilderChristmas.  You can enter once a day via Instagram but you MUST return to the widget for the entry to be valid.  Also, your profile cannot be private or we can't see your entry.  We know this isn't the easiest process, but Rafflecopter apparently doesn't like Instagram. haha

    They're all so beautiful, but to be in the Christmas spirit, it would probably have to be Señor Santa Hat... either that or the Swallow - the colours on that one are AMAZING.

    ReplyDelete

  24. Holy toledo! This giveaway is amazing! I've always wanted one of their brooches, but they're always a little bit pricy for my pocketbook. I love them all, but I'm especially partial to Martha Mother Goose and Trixie Bunny Honey! Thank you for the chance to win, sweet ladies... I never win these things, but I'm crossing my fingers!

  25. I've been coveting one of their amazing brooches, I'm partial to birds and would have a hard time choosing between so many cute options! But the Bluebird of Happiness brooch in dark red would be fabulous for Christmas (and Valentine's day and 4th of July . . .) Thank you for another awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    I was seriously just looking at Erstwilder brooches on Steady Clothings website and was wishing there were some with Christmas colors!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. So many to choose from, I think I'd have to go for the Polly Pug one though. Although I do really want a bird one as well....

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I shared an interview from ERSTWILDER + my collection here: http://lostin1950.blogspot.fr/2014/11/erstwilder-addict.html

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the rabbit in the hat by the way!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. If I won, I'd choose the squirrel - my best friend would love it & it would make her day to have it, not to mention it would make my month to be able to give her it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I absolutely love Erstwilder and I'm so excited for this giveaway! I never enter them, but this time I've got everything crossed. My little baby girl cat, my best friend of 18.5 years (I know, right?!), died a few months ago. She was a fiesty little tortieshell cat named Shelly (I was very young when I got her, okay?), and I miss her every single day. I had actually emailed erstwilder about tortie brooches because I missed her so much, and at the time they didn't have any!... ITs a surreal feeling now they do, and it's a giveaway run by you two lovely ladies! Here's to crossing my fingers and toes I could win a brooch that is a sassy representation of my little ladybug. X

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh goodness, fingers crossed for this!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love that sparrow!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would choose Emry the Asleep Fox!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been wanted to purchase one of their birds for months now but keep spending my pennies on Luxulite. Easy to do. ;) Must say that the new foxes with glasses also catch my fancy.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love that purple fox with the glasses!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ooh! I would choose the "BEV AND THE FLYING BALLOON BROOCH". I think she is just beautiful. <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. I bought myself Ruby the Red Cardinal over the weekend and am wearing her at the moment. But one can never have too many Erstwilders, so my next one would be a toss up between Girlberta Galah (need to add a little pink to my accessories), Penelope Peacock (aint she grand) and Bev & the Flying Balloon (just because). :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great giveaway! It would be such a difficult choice, but if I won I'd probably go for either the Bev and the Flying Balloon, Fancie Jo Sparrow, the Girlberta Galah, the Oscarwilden Fox or the Trixie Bunny Honey. I'm having a hard time narrowing them down! Haha! I love them all! :)

  44. The spotted elephant is my top choice!

    ReplyDelete
  45. If I won I would definitely have to pick Señor Santa Hat! I love birds because they are not bound to one place. Birds can spread their wings and fly anywhere they like at any time. And who doesn't love Christmas!? And red and pink are my favorite colors. This owl combines so many things that I love! Definitely have to go with it if I win!

It's hard to choose just one design as they're all so wonderful but I'd go with either the lion or cockatoo as they would both make my outfits 'pop'. They're the perfect statement piece with my vintage dresses! :)
