a fancy giveaway: bottega vintage

Etsy is brimming with wonderful vintage shops but sometimes I find one that really hits the nail on the head and makes me start clicking on the heart icon over and over. Bottega Vintage is one of those shops. It's filled with goodies from every era, including some amazing collars (like the dreamy scalloped number above) and perfect shoes, and they are generously offering a $50 gift certificate to one lucky Fancy Fine reader and 20% off the entire store through September 20th using the code 'FANCY20.'

If you would like to enter the giveaway please leave a comment with the following:

1. What is your favorite item from Bottega Vintage and how would you style it?
2. Your name & email.

The giveaway is open to International readers and the deadline to enter is September 20th. Good luck!

1. My favorite item in the store is the vintage 1960s mod plaid primary color dress. I love the different colors, especially the blue. So I would style it for fall with blue tights and dark brown boots, to keep the mod look but an updated version. I would add a long cold necklace. This dress is so perfect that you don't need to add to much to it.

What a beautiful shop! Fun that you get to collaborate with them!

My favorite piece is the 1960s grey tent dress. The color is so elegant. I would style this with a navy blue A-line coat and oxford heels. And a matching navy beret (because most of my fall outfits have a matching beret...)

Well, of the things that would actually fit me, I can't decide between:
* Vintage 1990s iridescent brassy bronze blouse
* Vintage 1970s violet liliac grey argyle turtleneck sweater
* Vintage 1970s olive green pompom vest. wool gilet
* Vintage 1960s sky blue and white houndstooth double-breasted coat
(I actually need a new coat the most, so I'd style it by wearing it over lovely light-colored winter dresses! I've a pretty, vintage ivory sweater two-piece that would look very sweet underneath! :))

Such a lovely shop... found myself purring over so much, but I think this Vintage 1980s slouchy polka dot black blouse would be bang on trend, paired with some dark skinnies, a shoe boot and a devil-may-care attitude.

Thanks for the great giveaway.
