Happy Birthday to Us! – Competition Time!

Yesterday, the 7th August, saw the first anniversary of the launch of Puttin’ on the Ritz! Happy Birthday to us! It’s been a great year, busy, exciting and sometimes challenging, and we’ve had an awful lot of fun and are looking forward to many more years ahead.

To celebrate our first birthday, we’ve decided to have another first, our first ever competition, with one of our Lady Swinburn stoles ready and waiting to be posted out to the lucky winner!

1930s faux fur stole, 1940s faux fur stole
The stole up for grabs is in the delicious brown faux mink shown here, it’s just perfect for the approach of autumn and for adding a touch of glamour to a cold-weather outfit.

Entering is easy-peasy! For one entry, just leave us a comment below, and for more entries, you can link to our competition from your blog or re-tweet it, and leave a link to your blog/re-tweet here. Make sure to use a seperate comment for each entry though, as we’ll be using a random number generator to pick our winner. The competition ends three weeks from today, on the 29th of August, when we’ll announce the winner here.

Good luck everyone!
