Lured by Lore - Skimbaco Giveaway

Note: There are TWO giveaways here this week, so be sure to scroll down one and enter the Beacon Street Girls contest as well!

This giveaway is being sponsored by my blog buddy Katja, and you are going to be blown away by her generosity. First, a little bit about Katja and her gorgeous, upscale boutique, Skimbaco. (I love saying/writing both of those names!)

Here's Katja's "About Me" profile from her blog:

I am a fashion-freak-former model. I am a cinnamon-bun-baking-housewife. I am a marketing-loving-business-woman. I am a "let's-jump-some-more-on-the couch-kids"-mother. I own, the Upscale Children's Boutique.

Don't you just love her?!

Katja's boutique Skimbaco is LOADED with the most hip and trendy children's designer clothing, shoes and accessories, baby gifts, home deco, toys and women's designer jewelry.

New to Skimbaco is the clothing line Fable and Lore created by Kaia Canales. Canales has designed for companies such as Calvin Klein and Old Navy in the past, and now, her Fable and Lore line is available at Skimbaco!

The line centers around a fairy tale theme, and each outfit comes with its own illustrated storybook. The clothing features color-changing embroidery and hidden pockets to create a magical feel for children. How cool is that?!

You can read an interview with Canales by Katja here.

My favorite from the Fable and Lore line is this gorgeous Peggy Ruby Red Velvet Coat:

How perfect is this for fall? The leaves lining the bottom are just too cute.

Boys can wear the Peter Preppy Navy Coat and look just as stylish as the girls:

A few other favorites of mine from Skimbaco include this Victorian Blouse in Black in the Wati line:

this Custom Silver Child Name Bracelet in the Deanna Cochran Tiny Angel Designs collection:

And this Custom Blanki in brown by Gigi Blanki:

Now that you've fallen in love with Skimbaco as much as I have, I have good news for you! One winner will receive a $100 shopping spree at Skimbaco!
