I love when I get to work with great design companies; Grohe (pronounced kinda like "Growee", at least here in the U.S.) is an amazing bathroom fixture company who makes state-of-the-art, well-designed products. (Side note: I recently went to stay in the new Margaritaville Hotel in Pensacola Beach, FL, and they had Grohe fixtures. I must've taken 12 showers in three days, they're that good. I was much less psyched about hearing "Margaritaville" eleventy-hundred times during my stay.)
In any case, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Grohe is donating $25 from every sale of the Ladylux3 Cafe or Plus Faucets to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and purchases of their pink Icon hand shower (above, below) kick in an extra $10 as well.
To help spread awareness of October as breast cancer awareness month, we're giving away one Rainshower Icon hand shower, color pink (of course). Just leave your name (and, if your name is something like Jennifer, a city/state so we don't get winners confused) in the comments to win this for your about-to-be-awesome bathroom. This is open to everyone, everywhere. Good luck!
PS) More giveaways coming this week!

I know I can't be the only one out there completely obsessed with vintage sewing patterns. (If only I could sew well enough to make them real!). Bluette Court on Etsy.com has a great selection of gorgeous patterns for sale. I almost want to buy them just to frame the fashion illustrations on the packaging. Poufy skirts galore! Love.

DC-ers! This Wednesday, Oct. 6, I'm playing host to a Shoshanna trunk show at Urban Chic Bethesda, part of Bethesda Boutique Week, which has awesome events and fun bloggers hanging out every night through Saturday.
The full fall collection of Shoshanna's pretty draped dresses (love the knots), pleated pieces and going-out-wear will be at Urban Chic all day on Wednesday (and at 15% off!), and I'll be there after work from about 6-8. Probably trying on the dress below right. I'm a sucker for origami folds.
And so, in conclusion: Champagne, pretty dresses, fall fashion. 15% off. Wednesday evening at Urban Chic Bethesda. Hope to see you then!
