LucieLu "Instant Sleeves" Giveaway!


I think I've made it pretty obvious that I think LucieLu's Instant Sleeves are awesome, and in fact they are quickly supplanting all other shrug-type cover-ups in my wardrobe. I've said it before and I'll say it again: They.are.genius! They offer just enough coverage of the arms and upper back without taking away the silhouette of an outfit, even allowing you to introduce another color into the outfit if you so choose. And the ruching on the sleeves not only adds a feminine and textural touch, but it adds yet another means of camouflaging those tricky upper arms by making them appear smaller! This is no ordinary shrug! Well, the wonderfully generous designer has agreed to sponsor my very first giveaway with one of these closet staples for your very own!

Here are the rules! To enter you must:
  1. Be a follower of Surely Sonsy and leave a comment indicating how you follow (GFC username/email address, Bloglovin', Google Reader,  etc.).
  2. Check out LucieLu's selection of Instant Sleeves, and tell me which color you'd get and why in your comment.
For extra entries, please leave a separate comment for each of the following:
  1. Like Surely Sonsy on Facebook and leave a comment with your FB address. (You can email it to me if you don't want to leave it here.)
  2. Follow @shessica17 on twitter and TWEET about the giveaway with the following message (or something similar): "I entered @shessica17's LucieLu Instant Sleeves giveaway, and you should too! http://t.co/6yit4kZ" (Be sure to include your twitter name in your comment!)
  3. Blog about the giveaway OR post about it on Facebook with a link back to this post! (Be sure to include the link to your post in your comment!)
Four chances to win? Of course! =) This giveaway is open to US readers only (sorry, dear international readers), and will be open until 11:59pm (Central time) on Sunday, July 2nd. Good luck!

For those of you wondering about sizing/fit: they are true to size with a close fit (which is my preference - I'm wearing 14/16 in these), but if you prefer a roomier, swingier fit - similar to a bolero or regular shrug - you might size up. (So perhaps sizes 10-12 could enjoy these fabulous pieces, too!)

  1. Yay for giveaways! I am a follower of course :) Fatale Fashion (or Ariana? I'm not sure lol) and my email's fatfatalefashion@gmail.com

    I'd get the taupe color! It's one of my favorite colors at the moment and goes with everything because it's a neutral :)

  4. those sleeves seem amazing! they'd be a great addition to my wardrobe to warm up a springy ensemble without the bulk of layering a long the tee underneath a pretty dress/top. 

    i want every color (of course), but would probably go for black first since I wear so many outfits with black tights. 

    I'm following you on GFC, same icon as my disqus one, username Chelsea :)

  14. Hey stranger... love this idea, I think I would have to go with black, but I love the dove too. I follow you through google reader (does that count?). My email is pajamapants79@gmail.com  Jess, I think you are looking gorgeous lately (not that I think that will help my chances, not buttering you up, just hadn't taken the time to tell you lately).

  15. thanks for entering, ismay! i'm not totally sure what you mean by "regular size", so I just wanted to make sure you know that LucieLu is a plus-size store (the smallest size they offer is 14/16!) hope that doesn't change anything for you! =)

  16. aw, thanks jill! i have the dove (not yet pictured tho) and it's a nice light gray - a wonderful neutral!

  17. I would love to have a pair in taupe. I always carry a sweater with me for chilly restaurants when I wear sleeveless dresses; the instant sleeves would be a great alternative. My email is onemorecurve@gmail.com

  18. Yay I LOVE this and am so excited!  I would love this in black because I'd in all honesty probably wear it the most (I already own them in Dove and Taupe).  My email is shelvikr@yahoo.com.  Whooh good luck everyone!!

  34. You're on my LJ feed; don't know if that counts or not, but that's how I follow you.  (Facebook, too, plus I'd be stalking you in person if I still lived in Illinois!)

    I would get the black ones, thereby enabling me to wear short-sleeved shirts for orchestra concerts/gigs and still be technically wearing long sleeves.  Oh, how I like bending rules.
