GIVEAWAY: Pearls & Swine Mini Beret

This giveaway is now closed!
Thank you to everyone who entered - I am tallying up the entries, and a winner will be contacted shortly.

Hey everyone,

It's been a little while since I've had a giveaway - and I come bearing a cracker of a prize!

Up for grabs is this beautiful Blue Cocktail mini beret from West Yorkshire online boutique, Pearls & Swine who specialise in vintage and burlesque inspired pieces.

Picture property of Pearls & Swine modelled by the beautiful Anna Fur Laxis
(Also: photograph by Plus London paparazzi girl, Diana of FashionLovesPhotos.com - small world!)

Worth over £25, the mini beret is hand knitted with heart-shaped blue gems, and an embroidered sequin cocktail. Also attached is a big sturdy comb to keep it in place.
