Heyyyy, guys! Guess what day it is!
…well, no, besides Juneteenth, I mean.
…and besides World Sickle Cell Day.
…AND besides Zoe Saldana’s birthday.
Look, I’ll just tell you, okay? It’s the first anniversary of this here blog! That’s right, fools, Tia and I have been blathering on about our clothes (and ourselves) for a whole year now. Woof! I’m tired just thinking about it.
Anyhow, to celebrate this obviously great achievement of ours, I would like to welcome you to the
FIRST ANNUAL BLOG ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY EXTRAVAGANZA!
(Never mind that “annual” and “anniversary” are redundant and that it’s more of a two-item giveaway than an extravaganza, but bear with me here.)
The first half of the giveaway deals, appropriately, with the first half of our dear little blog’s name: “Reading.”
That’s right, folks and folkettes, you (you!) could win a signed copy of Lucy Knisley’s charming travelogue French Milk, which is a convergence of many things I hold dear: indie press, autobiographical comics, travel, and, yeah, food. You can read my review of it here if you haven’t already!
The second half of the giveaway encompasses the second half of our blog’s name: “Skirts.” Well, insofar as “skirts” means “clothing” in this case.
Again, that’s right–you could win this purdy, purdy blue sarong with green and yellow sea life that I bought in Hawaii a long time ago! It is a fraternal triplet with two other sarongs I brought back, one of which you can see in action here. I solemnly swear to give it a good laundering before it gets sent on its merry way. Works marvelously as a scarf, beach cover-up, creatively-tied tube top, as well as a number of other ideas that I’m just not creative to think of right now. The mind boggles!
So here’s the scoop: all you have to do is leave a comment telling us either a) what your favorite travel memory is (bonus points if you mention a favorite travel meal), or b) how you’d dress the sarong up (or down)! You can even do both, if’n you wanna enter for both items. Entries will be accepted until 11:59PM PST a week from today–that’s Tuesday, June 26th. The winner will be chosen at random and I’ll announce our two lucky duckies the next day. Get it? Got it? Good!
Now go forth, my little cabbages, and celebrate, for today it is
St. Zosimus’ Feast Day Reading in Skirts’ first birthday!
They grow up so fast.
