And the day started out so good… In terribly sad news, Ralph Lauren has decided to close all 13 of their Rugby stores and discontinue the Label on February 2nd. I really loved Rugby’s whole look and design aesthetic, and their prices were always reasonable (even more so once they went on sale). Perhaps this is a sign that the mainstream preppy movement is finally on the way out, or perhaps it has been for a while and we just haven’t noticed… Regardless, the brand and their fantastic design will be sorely missed. Head on over to and snatch up so wardrobe staples before they’re gone for good.

Du Ciel Designs Giveaway

A little something for the ladies this morning, gentleman. My good friend and fellow blogger Jeni from Glorious Morning has recently launched her own clothing line called Du Ciel Designs, which means “Of The Sky”. Comprised of hand-sewn dresses made in Upstate New York, the concept of her line is classical sexy. Based on the idea that French women have one great dress they wear over and over and simply update the accessories to fit their mood, Jeni wanted to make dresses that are perfect for a first date, or meeting the parents for the very first time. In celebration of the launch of Du Ciel Designs, Jeni is sponsoring a giveaway on her website and asked if I would share it on the blog. Always happy to help, I’ve posted the rules of her contest below along with a few shots from the line.

Here’s how it works:
Step 1- Leave a comment bellow with your name and where you live.
Step 2- Check out the ETSY page, choose the dress you LOVE!
Step 3- Become a fan on Facebook
Step 4- leave a comment telling me which one you want most for this Holiday Season!
**Here’s where it gets fun!**
On 11/9/12, this Friday, I will pick 2 finalists, they will then have a week to campaign to their friends for VOTES!  Their friends then have a week to comment on the fan page leaving their vote as to who they think should win.  The following Saturday 11/17/12, I will announce the winner.
Want to better your chances of being chosen?!  Or don’t have FB?  Find me on Instagram, theycallme_punkie, repost the give away photo hashtag, #ducieldesigns.  Best of luck to you all!
Bonne Chance Mes Amies!
