Open for Business: Dottie Adele

After a weekend full of measuring and remeasuring clothes, posing awkwardly (and sweatily) for hours while Scott took pictures, writing out clothing descriptions, and, yes, last minute sewing, I am so glad to be able to say:  The shop is open, the shop is open!


There about are about a million fun things you can do today in honor of the shop opening!

1.  First and foremost, you can go visit Dottie Adele on Etsy by clicking here!
2.  You can reread my shop announcement from last week, including a little back story on the name of my shop.
3.  You can glance through the Look Book of the current collection in the shop by clicking here or on the page tab above.  There are tons of pictures (taken by Scott!) of each garment styled in different ways.
4.  You can enter the giveaway!  (Rules outlined below)

To enter the giveaway:
What you can win: Three coupons are up for grabs - 50% off, 60% off, and 75% off!  Applicable to any item in the shop at any time.  If you win, I'll send you the special coupon code in an e-mail that you can use at checkout.  Three separate winners will be chosen - one for each coupon.

How you can win it:  Simply leave a comment below!  Non-followers are welcome too!  Please make sure that there is an e-mail address to contact you should you win.  One extra entry allowed if you leave an additional comment telling me what item from the shop you would like to have as your own :)
   
When you find out if you won it:  Giveaway closes in three days - Wednesday, August 10, at midnight!  I'll post the three winners on Thursday after choosing them randomly with the help of random.org.

**I will continually be adding new items to the shop throughout this week and in the future.  If you win the giveaway but an item you had your eye on has since sold out, just let me know, and I will be sure to restock with one in your size!**

This is a dream of mine that's coming true today.  A huge, gigantic thank you to all of you for clicking over to the shop and browsing through!
