The girl with the green scarf

I am so excited to announce a fabulous, and first, giveaway for La vie...J'aime readers! As fashionistas, I am sure most, if not all, of you saw Confessions of a Shopaholic this past winter. We were treated to the life and buys, esp the beloved green scarf, of Rebecca Bloomwood. We also learned how to be a recessionista during these trying economic times (giveaways certainly help!).

Now one of you can be the girl with the green scarf with this Collection Eighteen chiffon scarf giveaway from! And yes, this is the actual scarf from the movie.

Here's how to win:

1. Be a follower of La vie...J'aime (on the side bar) through Google
2. Follow on twitter @laviejaime
3. Leave a comment on this post stating how you would wear the green scarf in the most recessionista, money-saving, savvy way.

Good luck!

    Oh, and scarf will make my money saving outfits more fashionable. haha. thanks for the giveaway :D
    BTW, I don't have twitter, I hope that's okay...

  11. Yeah another Boston blogger! I'm so glad you found me through another blog. I just became a follower of your now. We will have to plan another get together soon because last night was a blast and you def. have to come!!

    Love Rebecca Blooomwood and the Shopaholic series, they are some of my favorite books!

  12. Hee hee. I want to win this scarf, definitely! I think I could creatively style this scarf and wear it in an outfit for 365 days of the year. some of those ways? As an accessory on a plain bag, worn as a headband, worn as a belt, worn criss crossed over the shoulder a la Rebecca Bloomswood, as a faux-hankie in the pocket of a blazer, wrapped up in a long chain necklace, circled around the wrist and tied with a bow for a scarf-bracelet, looped through a tank top and tied with a bow, tied around the neck as a classic scarf, worn sarong-style over a bathing suit, worn artfully draped over leggings or a bodysuit and sky high platform boots, used to carry small parcels inside a bag...

  13. OMG! It's solely CHIC, the color is brilliantly FAB and it would be amazingly fashionable to wear as a halter top over a silk crew neck sweater in a contrasting brilliant color like a cobalt blue!!!:)
