One way of getting over January doldrums is looking forward to the next major holiday or milestone on the calendar—Valentine's Day! Swarovski evidently feels the same way, because they've asked me to show how I'd style their new Amorous pendant for a date, and they're offering another pendant as a giveaway to one lucky Solo Lisa reader. (Scroll to the bottom of this post for the entry form!)
The Date This coffee date shoot is pretty special as it showcases a favourite neighbourhood haunt of the boy's and mine. Forty-Ninth Parallel has great lattes, gourmet doughnuts, and an inviting ambiance. What's more, the Main St. location is just a stone's throw from home, making it the perfect spot to while away a few rainy Saturday hours. Can you tell we come here a lot? (P.S. A special shout-out to our friend Felix for helping take these wonderful photos!)
The Outfit I went for an easy mix of wardrobe staples: a black blazer, sailor stripes, and flattering A-line floral skirt with touches of cognac leather. The lines of the outfit are sleek and streamlined, allowing the mix of patterns (stripes, florals, and polka dots) and the sparkly heart-shaped Amorous pendant to really shine. Fuchsia lips finished off the look.
Enter the Giveaway To win an Amorous pendant of your own (or win one for a special someone!), simply fill out the form below between Monday January 13th and Tuesday February 4th. Good luck!
UPDATE: I'm pleased to announce that the winner of the Swarovski Amorous pendant is Alisa Bagshaw. Congratulations, Alisa!
