It is with such pleasure that I offer you today a most generous giveaway from the supremely talented Lauren Winter. I've been following with admiration the growth of her handmade collection, Blooming Leopold since its inception and am continuously impressed with her keen eye for colour and shape. There is not one item in her current collection that I wouldn't be thrilled to romp around in all summer and one of you lucky readers will have the opportunity to do just that! Lauren is offering h&l readers a $100 gift card to her shop, Blooming Leopold! All that I ask of you in order to be eligible is to let me know which piece you would love to wear this summer. (& while it's not necessary to win you may want to follow her beautiful blog because she's wonderful and her sewing saturday posts are not to be missed!)

There are so many young women pursuing their creative calling (hi Anja, Josephine, Wray, Kelsey, Samantha & Alexandra!) right now, it's hard not to be inspired by their hard work and by the gorgeous fruits of their labor. As always, I urge you friends to check out talented independent designers. I promise you will treasure your independently crafted goods above all!
