a one year celebration // giveaway!
C’est l’anniversaire de La Couturier!
It has been a year – a good year – since my first post. I had begun with no readers, simply writing to myself and for myself, and somehow gained a rather good number of followers. The number of comments and emails I receive, though hardly comparable to those of Karla’s Closet or Fashion Toast, still make me quite proud – to think that there are actually those who read my humble little blog and continue to return will never fail to astonish me. I must say that this blog has opened so many opportunities for me, from my internship at Dujour Magazine, to meeting amazing, fashion-obsessed girls like myself, and being exposed to the fabulousness of this blogosphere.
Herein I officially proclaim myself as a blogette, obsessed with blogs and blogging.
And everyday I am reminded of why I started this blog in the first place; my sole purpose in creating La Couturier extends beyond my passion for fashion and writing. I have always sought to inspire in some way or another. And whether or not I have done so I will never know for sure, but the immeasurable love, through comments and emails alike, is more than enough for me. Je t’aime tous!
I can only wish to continue, to improve, to inspire. So here, in La Couturier, I’ve poured by inspirations, my loves, and my dreams.
Feel free to dream along.
the 1st giveaway. [CLOSED]
And in celebration of an entire year of blogging (and many more to come, I hope), I’ve teamed up with Chickdowntown to present (drum roll, s’il vous plaît) the first giveaway contest! I’ve loved Chickdowntown for quite some time now, admiring and coveting pieces lovely sandals by Mystique and floral printed rompers from Yumi Kim. And yes, this admiration goes as far as following the boutique’s founder Amy on Twitter and on Facebook. Oui, I am a self-professed fan.
I am uninhibitedly in love with denim – I own quite a few pairs, with about two in each wash since I do wear them rather religiously. Denim pants have always stood for that carefree, rugged sexiness – masculine meets femininity – and versatility: qualities of which I value highly in clothing. For decades now the jean has become symbolic and ubiquitous, which would indeed make perfect sense for me to choose the highly coveted CURRENT/ELLIOTT “the Legging” Denim Skinny in black!
Why wouldn’t you want a pair? After all, black is a versatile color (you know I love my black!). And this particular style has been known to do miraculous deeds for the woman: elongating and slimming the legs – hurrah!
