Sharing the love giveaway

My friends, it is time to put you in the spotlight and share some of the love. After all, your votes are what made my dream come true, so I am kind of like an accessory to your awesomeness, right? So how do I begin to thank you?
Let's start with presents. Lots and lots of presents...

Since I've been home I've heard the following conversation more times than I care to admit:

"Hey, Tapper, great job on that whole book prize thingy..." Voice trails off as if they forgot why they started the sentence. "By the way, where did you get that dress?!"


There was such an overwhelming interest in the dress that I, your fearless blogger, contacted the company (an awesome boutique called Downeast Basics) and said, "How about sharing the love with my readers?"
And here's the kicker- they said "Absolutely!"
Years of of my literary toil =  you in an great dress.  I'm in- let's do this thing!

All you need to do is go to their website to pick out your favorite dress (check to ensure your size is available- they go fast!)
UPDATE 6/25- Feel free to pick out a skirt if you prefer. No limits!


And in my comment section tell me which dress would make you feel like a winner!
That's it. Easy. Peasy.
And if you are overcome with love for this great clothier, be like the other 30,000 shoppers with great fashion sense and like them on facebook, ya know, so they will think you are the best blog readers in existence and beg me to give you more clothes.

And if you are still feeling the love and excited to see what other presents are coming (oh yes, my friends, this is just the beginning) then follow this blog or like my author page on facebook  or follow me on Twitter.  I will announce new giveaways and winners on twitter, facebook, and of course, here at Tapper and Company.

And P.S. my friends, after I randomly select a winner (whoever I like the most that day) please check back to see if it is you. Nothing is worse than losing a prize you won!

If you didn't figure it out- I was kidding. I love you all and I really will randomly select the winner.

That's all. What are you waiting for? Go shop!!!

  1. So the dress that I love the most (that they still have my size in) is the Summer Festival dress. I love the ruching of the dress that will help hide the post baby bulge I am working to get off. So that's the dress that would make me feel like a winner. And what a great idea and I wish they still had the dress that you got in my size...although it probably wouldn't look quite as good on me!

  7. Like so many of your readers, I LOVE the Forsyth Park Dress. Unfortunately, also like so many of your readers, I am not an XX-small :( My second choice would be the Summer Festival Dress. I love the color and the style of it!

  9. i am deeply in LOVE with your dress after seeing it on you so i might have to drive the three hours to go buy it in the store since i am sadly not a tiny tiny person and fit into a extra small:) The Summer Festival Dress is my second favorite! tooooo toooo cute!

  10. The pleasant peasant dress in atmosphere blue in an x-small or small would make me feel like a winner because of its mobility and modesty. I just was released from the hospital a week ago and have mostly been laying bed since. I had hip surgery so right now, loose fitting clothing that I can easily move around on with my crutches is very convenient. Also, I wouldn't have to worry about making sure I was covered because the dress is extra modest. Congratulations on your award and thanks for sharing the love:)

  26. Hmmm...how to decide. I love the chic chevron in navy. Super cute. However, the dress you wore really is darling. I could TOTALLY live with that one (and we don't even go to the same ward, so we wouldn't have to worry about showing up wearing the same dress..ack!) ;)

  27. Ok, Regina. Thanks for getting the hook ups with Down East! I like the Bonfire skirt in Salmon, the Drawing Parallels skirt in cream, and the Summer Festival Dress in koi. I'm either a SM or XS. Same size you bought your dress in. Great luck with the contest!!! Love you and so happy to see you while I was there!
