What a lovely giveaway! :) I absolutely love the hellz bellz women's the city dress. Because of the flow of the dress and the layers are of different lengths, it will take the distraction out of my short height and make me look seemingly taller.

xo, Michelle

Firstly, there is not one thing i don't love about your outfit! The shoulder detailing and the studs are perfect with your impeccable accessorising!

I'm so glad you introduced me to this brand, i would never have found it and they have so many cute things! My favourite is this: http://www.80spurple.com/shop/product/114776/252/dear-creatures-women-s-cafe-romper-navy-chambray
I'm all about the jumpsuit this summer and this one is chambray! A chambray jumpsuit, i could definitely get a lot of use out of that. The wide leg shorts are chic but comfortable and the colour is perfect.

Lovely outfit, Marcella! Love the edgy look..and nice clutch!

I just liked 80s Purple on Facebook!

Choosing my favourite item from 80s Purple was so tough! There are sooo many things to choose from. I decided that ONE of my faves on the site are these heels: CLICK.

I love the peeping toes and the skinny heel. The zippers add a bit of appeal to it and I'm sure I can fit it into my everyday chic wardrobe. ; )

My name is Jessy and I can be contacted through my blog here: The Little Dust Princess. Sorry! Didn't wanna leave my email because someone took it from another giveaway and sent me spam messages.

Thank you Fashion Distraction and 80s Purple for this awesome giveaway! :D

Wow picking just one item (or even 10) is soooo hard! They carry such amazing pieces. I adore the purple label striped blaze so much and think it could be transformed through all seasons so easily.


Taylor wrote:

choosing one thing was most definitely difficult. but my favorite item is the puella women's design sweater dress. i like it because even though the cut is conventional, the pattern is really unique and works with the black & white. I also like how the pattern looks like a mix of card suits and a christmas feel :)

This is such an awesome contest and it was really hard picking something as my favorite after browsing through all the categories . There's so many awesome things to choose from but eventually my eyes spotted this Hellz Bellz dress.


It's so simple yet sophisticated. Just the way it drapes and falls on the body is beautiful and the back is amazing! I normally could never bring myself to spend so much on something that wasn't jewelry or shoes but then i noticed that the dress was one size. Which totally means i could share it with my little sister.. the dress would get plenty of wear ;)

lovely giveaway! i love the details of the jacket!!

Beth wrote:


This dress definitely caught my eye.
dolce vita - women's silk electra dress

It's like the perfect pencil skirt and crop top in one piece. The open back looks like wings! White is definitely a more daring alternative to black, and the print is simple and not too fussy.

My favourite is; http://www.80spurple.com/shop/product/116017/42/purple-label-women-s-madelyn-flower-print-vneck-dress-multi

Because the print reminds me of of a shirt that my mother used to own when I was little and I adore it, I even tried to draw it once, it didn't turn out well :)

i didn't know if clothing also meant accessories included, so just in case i put both. lol
the cc skye stud bangle magnetic clasp bracelet is simply gorgeous. even out of the range of the $100, i couldn't resist a second look. it just looks so smooth and classy. usually studs would give any outfit a punk-rock or ostentatious look, but this addition just adds such a surprisingly classy accent.

as for clothing, i actually really liked the insight women's asteroid one piece in blue abyss. other than it being 70% off (woo!), its abstract pattern drew me in automatically. it looked seemingly comfortable but that combination of blues, purples and greens is simply captivating. a definite attention grabber at the beach, and not in a slutty way. a truly unique piece

Great outfit post,i really love your black fringe-sleeved vest,oh and those aviators are such classics.And they look amazing on you :D

And about the giveaway,well my favourite piece from the site has to be the gorgeous silky blue "elephant print ruffle dress" (however,i think those so-called "elephant" prints on the dress look a tad more like flowers lol).
I love this garment as i can already think of about a KAZILLION ways to wear it simply by looking at the picture,it looks like a fantasticaly (is that even a word lol?) versatile piece that would fit very nicely into my wardrobe if i was to purchase it :D

wow! this is an awesome giveaway thanks!!
If I had to choose, I choose the women's eloise cloak (black) by velvet leaf.

I love it because the ruffled chest makes the cloak quirky and not the usual type of cape/cloak. Moreover, this item can be used as both a dress by itself during the warmer months like in spring or autumn, as well as an outerwear as well during the colder months. So literally it's multi-purpose! 2 for the price of 1, what more can a clothing ask for?

They have a classic look and a comfortable looking heel. I am sure that I could wear these boots during photo shoots and then long afterwards without having sore feet!



I'd get the 80%20 hidden wedges in black leather mesh,I hope they have my size again! I'd wear it with the Hellz Bellz "triumph" shirt

Have you ever seen a pair of shoes and thought: I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE. Well thats what happened as soon as I saw these a few months ago on 80s Purple. Theyre perfect for my work at the office and then going out later. Not only that They have an awesome platform sole for comfort and would make even my short legs look amazingly long. Two words: TA - DOW!
