Friday Giveaway: Lesley Evers Dress

Our Giveaway today is the "Hope" dress from Lesley Evers which retails at $225. What a fabulous offer Lesley- thank you! Hope is a comfortable everyday dress in a twill cotton with a sash tie and raglan sleeves and is available in five different colour swatches.

You may have already met Lesley on my blog here, here and here.

To be in to win:
1. Be a follower or subscriber and
2. Leave a comment
If you Facebook or Tweet this Giveaway you get one extra chance for each (leave separate comments for each). The choice of colour is subject to availability. Sorry, no returns.  The winner will be drawn randomly on Friday 8th July.

Lesley's frocks are designed to take you all through your day - whether it be camp drop-off, driving to work, picking out raspberries from your local farmers' market or meeting friends for cocktails. Today I found Hope just at home on the streets of Paris, from my first espresso at our hotel in Marais.  (And after hearing the 19th century writer Balzac drank 25 espressos a day I feel okay about having a double.)


 Just as the espresso cups are tiny so are the cars...



And now for some window shopping - or leche vitrine as the French would say, literally translated to "window licking."


Selecting wine, cheese and couscous from our new corner shop, the Supreme du Marais....


Then heading off to Place des Vosges for a picnic dinner...


Where in the world would you wear your Hope?

  1. You got me Jody! Not usually a commenter, but I simply had to go for the Lesley Evers dress! I'm still trying to figure out where the kids are while you and Kevin jet around France. Now that Harley is in high school, is he in charge?
    Enjoy!

  3. You look gorgeous! I was wondering what you were doing in Paris and just scrolled down to read that you have slipped away--good for you! I really do need more dresses (hard to believe, but I spend most of my work days in the same pair of jeans and a tee)--so please sign me up for this sweet one and I will tweet it too :)

  10. I have finally just discovered (at 57!) that dresses hide lumps and bumps and look good on this knackered old body of mine and I have only 2 dresses so far...this gorgeous dress would add to my collection (although it would never look as good on me as it does on you...) so please enter me into the draw...it is fabulous!

  11. I would wear that dress A LOT. I live in dresses all summer long. and I would pick that green (you know I love green).

  16. A)You are so gorgeous! Seriously. B) 25 cups of espresso? My ears would be ringing C) I'm not going to lie, I'm a little jealous that you are in Paris and I am not D) "window licking" has just entered my vocabulary and E) If I won the dress it would be worn on a much-needed date with the hubs.

  17. Fascinating pieces of clothing. You even "spruce up" Paris.
    Alas, Bears have no need for dresses.

  22. You look gorgeous and Hope looks perfectly at home in Paris!

  23. I have this unfortunate 'talent' for making nice clothes look awful so don't enter me as it would be a travesty! Don't know if this is because I am a dwarf or just not blessed with grace but this partly explains why I usually dress like a 6 year old hoping that the stupidity of my outfits overshadows my lumpy shape. Anyway - just thought I'd say that you and Hope look fab and I love the pattern. (Anyway - if I did suddenly possess something nice my daughter would steal it anyway!) Have fun with the draw!!

  24. I would love one of Lesly's fabulous dresses. YOu look great.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow you look amazing in that dress (although you do appear to be the type of woman who could wear a bin bag with style). Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I couldn't help but noticing your amazing wedges too...I have a fab pair from Banana Republic that have only had one outing this year. Criminal!!! I am going to have to start wearing them surreptitiously around the house at this rate, just doing the housework (ha ha ha....like I do housework!)

  56. Okay - so i actually already own and wear this gorgeous frock - and i SO don't want to be greedy or PRESUME that i would ever win this but, should that be the case (feelin' LUCK-Y!), I will give the HOPE to one of my many, many pals whom have complimented me on this dress. I'm a wee bit, uh, larger than Jody, and this dress still is striking.
    thanks, Lesley & Jody! xo Laura

  57. How have I never found this designer before? Please please please put me in the draw - it looks like the perfect piece to throw on in the morning for work without having to think too much that then takes me through meetings and client drinks and then does extra duty at the weekend at family lunches
