You can find the giveaway winner at the bottom of this post
So it’s my 27th birthday today. Philosophical, angsty post to follow in a couple days, of course. But first, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway for the occasion. You know, because giving gifts is just as good as getting them, and I really appreciate you guys reading this blog and participating in the little ETDC community. Thank you!!
I’m giving away a $100 gift card for Shabby Apple, because they have some seriously, seriously beautiful stuff and when I’m being fully girly, I admit to myself that winning a pretty dress/amazing earrings would just about always make my day, no matter what.
(black lace party dress…so delightfully fancy)
Here’s the deal: like the Shabby Apple FB page and then leave a comment under this post to enter the contest. (If you don’t use Facebook but want to enter, let me know and I’ll talk to Shabby Apple and see if there’s a way to get around this.) In your comment, let me know what item you have your eye on, if any, or you can just tell me why you want to win or why you like Shabby Apple’s stuff. But don’t feel any pressure to make your reasons amazing- I’ll pick the winner randomly.
Even if you don’t win, all Eat the Damn Cake readers can use the following code to get a 10% discount off of any Shabby Apple product for a month, until April 6th: eatthedamncake10off
The sad, dark underbelly of all this: I’m noticing that there isn’t a huge size range on the site. If you can’t find your size, please accept my apologies– I wish all of the awesome clothing sites were inclusive– and consider checking out the accessories or bags or shoes or anything else.
Also: Only people with US mailing addresses can receive stuff from Shabby Apple. But if you want to enter anyway and are planning a trip to NYC anytime soon, you can always have the prize forwarded to me and I promise I’ll only try it on once or twice while saving it for you OR: as Caitlin just suggested in the comments, you can paypal me some shipping money and I can get the gift to you. I know it’s an extra step, but if you think it’s worth it, we can definitely make it happen.
I’ll run the giveaway for a week, until Weds the 13th. Which is the day after my anatomy scan ultrasound, when I find out the baby’s gender and holy shit, that feels like such a big deal right now I’m a nervous wreck/thrilled out of my mind/I forgot about my birthday completely because I was thinking about the 12th so much. Anyway. I can’t even believe that this is happening. But not the point. Win a dress! Or shoes!
(strappy flowery heel with buckle. If I could wear a heel this high and not kill myself, I would go with this.)

Unroast: Today I love the way I look in a tanktop with that slight padding. I never want to wear a bra again.
P.S. Thanks to Shabby Apple for doing this for my birthday! This was really fun to set up.
