A small remembrance of something more solid...

As you may have already read on Starr's blog and Tieka's blog Canadian designer Eve Gravel has enlisted the help of a handful of bloggers to spread the word of her line to the big ol' US of A (and the rest of the world too!). They sent me a copy of their fall/winter lookbook and let me pick my five favorite items with the promise that they'd send one for me to try out. Fun, huh?!

b

But I haven't gotten to the most fun part yet... I'll be passing the dress along to one of you lucky gals! I have to admit when I first saw the lookbook I was a bit intimidated by all of the leopard print. I'm not much of an animal print kind of gal. But after staring at the Edge Kate dress for a while, it became my number one pick. While the print is on the bold side, there are lots of little details like the ruffle down the front and the ruching on the sleeves that make it pretty and feminine.

For a chance to win this dress (it's an extra small and should fit a size 0-2) just visit the Eve Gravel shop then leave a comment on this post letting me know what your number one pick would be. Make sure to leave your email address so I can get in touch if you're the lucky winner!

i did have a chance to be introduced to this line through Tieka's site and my answer is still the same: the minute I saw the iva dress in all its pocketed glory, i knew it had to be mine!

bex.

p.s. i feel ya on the whole head-to-toe leopard thing, but i think you wear this little wonder just beautifully :)

I really love the Eve Gravel Play Dress. It's so simple and chic at the same time! The one you are modeling is super cute, too, I adore leopard print!

I know exactly how you feel about animal prints - when I see them in shops I always end up sighing and putting them back (I'm such a fussy shopper I can never buy anything on a whim... it only ever ends badly!). But this dress is georgeous, and bless my soul you look lovely in it :) I guess my number one pick from Eve Gravel would be the Bee Top, I can never have too many insect references in my wardrobe!

Hello,

The dress is lovely even though i don't usually like animal prints, they remind me too much of the 80's..this one is very different but in a good way!!The whole collection is wonderful so it was difficult to choose..but i made up my mind for the Heads Will Roll Skirt with Zip Zone!It is pretty simple but could be worn in some many different ways!
Wish me luck!

Ahh, these pictures are so "fall": the crisp blue sky, sharp light, goldening foliage. Brilliant!

I've never owned anything animal print post-elementary school, but I like this! Like you said, it's all in the detailing.

My favorite dress on their site has to be the lovely plaid Motto Motto:

genevieve, sandbox romance said...

Its interesting to see bloggers style her animal prints; I feel like that's a very different look from most people's "usual", so it's certainly an adventure! You look adorably classy!

The motto motto dress is perfect in every way! Thankyouthankyou!

I OD'd on leopard print in college (leopard rug, towels, lamps, even a prom dress) and I'm slooowly working my way back into it. I think this dress just knocked me off the wagon.

But I also love the Eve Gravel Erin dress - perfect for work or a night out!

Your photos are so naturally elegant and airy! I love the Eve Gravel Nolita dress, with the button details on the sleeves and the almost-boatneck cut of the top. Thanks for the posts!

I really love the dress you're wearing, the animal print is more subtle than most animal prints, which is nice. I also love the "la veuve dress" and the "honey dress".

anniefleming said...

You look fantastic in that dress, and it really suits the environment around you in the photos!
My fav dress on Eve Gravel's site is the Nolita Dress (http://evegravel.raiment.ca/dresses/eve-gravel-nolita-dress.html) - I love the pale blue color and the vintage-y fit.
