(this offer is for residents of the us and canada only.)

i have always loved seeing what fun pieces of clothing and accessories lulu’s has to offer, but i must admit, my favorite items on their site are always the SHOES!  i was browsing the other day for the perfect pair to wear to a few upcoming patio/pool parties, and i chose my four fave summer picks to share with you…

1. san diego platforms 2. adi platforms 3. queen platforms 4. trinidad platforms
SO cute, right?!! the prospect of fabulous new shoes makes me absolutely giddy!
so, here’s what you have to do to enter the giveaway:

(can be anything you want!)

Plus, easy to accessorize and go from interview to celebratory positive interview drinks!
