And the Winner Is... (Giveaway Winners and Exciting Shoe News!)

Happy Saturday, everybody!  Hope you're all having a wonderful day and enjoying your weekend.  We have the winners for Carol's birthday giveaway, but before we get to that, Carol has some exciting news for San Diegans and people with sample-size shoe feet (5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, maybe 7) who are willing to drive a little...

Carol here, everyone!  I got an email from Kelly a couple days ago, announcing the date for the start of Nordstrom's spring Salon Shoes Sample Shoe Sale at the Fashion Valley Mall.  It's starting on May 5th at 10 AM, when the doors open.  I'm totally planning to be there, so if you have a sample-shoe size foot - those are sizes 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, and 7 (admittedly fewer size 7 items, but you may get lucky), and you want to meet up and say hi, email me, or leave a comment, and we can organize something!

Here's what's going to be available:

Cole Haan: $79.90
Donald Pliner: $99.90, $109.90
Beverly Feldman: $59.90
Stuart Weitzman: $99.90

There are sometimes other brands and labels thrown in there too - you just never know what you're going to find.  And to be quite honest, I responded to Kelly's email, asking her, "Do I blog this?  Or keep it to myself?"  Hahaha...but everyone deserves fabulous, affordable shoes, so I'm blogging it (Kelly told me I need to share).

Hope you can make it!

I do NOT have sample size feet...boooo!  But for those of you who do, that's an amazing opportunity, so I hope you can go.

Okay, onto the giveaway!  Drumroll, please!  And the winner of the first place prize - a $25 Nordstrom Gift Card and a sample of La Mer cream is...!  

The winner of the second place prize - your choice of one of two Stream Bank Sashes:


If you're a winner, please email me at kathryn [dot] prettythings [at] gmail [dot] com.

Just for transparency's sake, all entries, including blog-entries and twitter-entries were compiled in the order received, in an Excel spreadsheet, and two numbers were randomly drawn to determine the winners:

Thanks to everyone who entered and to all our wonderful readers for coming to see us, everyday!  We wish we could have given each of you something as a thank you.

Maybe if one of us wins the lottery someday...!


  1. Congrats to Ava and Heather!

    Nuts, I have a size 5 shoe but I'm in northern CA. You lucky San Diegans! Sounds like a shoe bonanza. I *love* Nordstrom for the fact that it has so many shoe options for even hard to find sizes - great for those who have tiny feet like mine. two give us the gift of your posts already, no need to dish out physical presents! That is to say...when you do dish 'em out, it doesn't hurt, but I what I really come back for are the OOTDs and reviews. Thanks for blogging!

  2. Congrats to the giveaway winners! Man, I really wish that those samples sales would come to where I live, haha! Cole Haan for $80?! I would be in shoe heaven!
