Merry Chrismas from ShopBop

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, the folks at ShopBop want to wish you a very merry Christmas with a generous giveaway that will have you frocked up just in time for the festive season. In the coming weeks two lucky Dropstitch readers will score themselves ShopBop vouchers, with the winner taking home a $200 gift card, and the runner up scoring a $100 voucher.


Dara Ettinger Lark Ring

I’m particularly fond of this gorgeous Dara Ettinger ring (which will come in very handy should Great Uncle Frank or any other relative decide to start talking about my weight at Christmas lunch… one prod with this and they’ll soon learn to keen their opinions to themselves!).

    This Christmas, I’m coveting this Matthew Williamson skirt (http://www.shopbop.com/fringed-skirt-matthew-williamson/vp/v=1/845524441899450.htm?folderID=2534374302184520&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-viewall&colorId=10917) the most, but as it’s unavailable in my size I might have to sell off a few organs to buy this Hervé Léger dress instead! http://www.shopbop.com/cut-out-dress-herve-leger/vp/v=1/845524441915979.htm?folderID=2534374302164176&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-chosen-viewall&colorId=24777 (Just kidding, I wouldn’t do that. I think.)

    A Michael Kors’ watch.

    Oh Bergs, you do know how to tempt a girl…I (always) have my eye on a bit of Wang (ooh-er), but to be practical for Summer & go for the Nika sandals, or rock out the Emily oxfords with a cute frock? I have to fence sit & say both, please.

    The pressies I’d most like to see under my tree care of ShopBop (& why!)

    ♥ Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Heart Stacking Ring – (http://www.shopbop.com/mini-charm-heart-stacking-ring/vp/v=1/845524441920208.htm?folderID=2534374302198488&fm=other-shopbysize&colorId=11784)

    What could be better than a permanent reminder to love yourself and others?! This gorgeous rose gold ring will help keep the love flowing in my heart this chrissy! ($48.60)

    ♥ Maison Scotch Deer Print Cosy Socks – (http://www.shopbop.com/deer-print-cozy-sock-maison/vp/v=1/845524441918469.htm?folderID=2534374302198489&fm=other-shopbysize&colorId=10456)

    With this crazy weather we’ve been having lately, who can tell if December 25th is going to be snowing or sweat filled? There may even be reindeers in the streets, I’d like to be wearing these socks just in case! ($28.36)

    ♥ I’d spend the rest on a lucky friend by casually mentioning ShopBop and sharing my favourites and asking her to share hers, then sneakily purchase something without her knowing :)

    Thanks for this competition xo

    Merry Xmas all!

    I’ve been kicking myself for not buying those Jeffrey Campbell Rumble boots when I saw them on Ebay, but the ones from Shopbop are on sale! I’d definitely get those to complete my new year’s eve outfit. Or maybe the Madewell Prairie boots….or maybe the Cheap Monday low angle boots? I’m coveting black ankle boots, clearly!

    Nice giveaway! Thanks : ]

    A black-tie dress. I’ve got a black tie wedding in February, and wouldn’t normally drop the money for a nice gown on, well, a gown (that’s unlikely to be worn again). I secretly wish someone would buy me something faaabulous!

    Even though they’ve been seen on many a fashion blog, I am still obsessed with these Sam Edelman booties! http://www.shopbop.com/zoe-hidden-platform-high-heel/vp/v=1/845524441911576.htm?folderID=2534374302191640&fm=other-shopbysize&colorId=12867

    The Kors Princeton sandals! It’s hard to find a nice mid-heel. At 180cm tall, a 4-inch wegde really becomes quite awkward!

    For Xmas I want to spend time with my family as I have not seen them all together for years as my sister lives in Darwin and my parents are O/S, having everyone together would be better than anything money can buy.

    A Michael Kors watch in rose gold or gold… I’ve needed a golden watch for ages as I always neglect all my golden jewellery as it clashes with my stainless steel watch.

    This Christmas I’m coveting this Alice + Olivia silver skirt! http://www.shopbop.com/myra-metallic-mini-skirt-alice/vp/v=1/845524441919117.htm?folderID=2534374302023685&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize&colorId=14327

    Without a shadow of a doubt I’d use it towards the Alexander Wang Kirsten clutch. It matches my handbag so I can keep my style cohesive from day to night! http://www.shopbop.com/kirsten-clutch-alexander-wang/vp/v=1/845524441923833.htm?folderID=2534374302055387&fm=other-shopbysize-viewall&colorId=12867 So much covet.

    The Alexis Bittar “Liquid Collar” (http://www.shopbop.com/liquid-collar-alexis-bittar/vp/v=1/845524441923653.htm?folderID=2534374302166653&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize&colorId=11739) absolutely caught my eye the moment I set eyes on it. I am still very much captivated by its beauty and I think my boyfriend may even be a little jealous ;)

  31. December 10, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I would love the Ellery leopard print coat, I’m going to Europe and need something to keep me warm in the winter. I think it would do the job nicely :)

  32. December 10, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    I love your comment about weight and “Great uncle Frank” haha, very funny!
    This Christmas item I’d most like is the pink La Mer Collections Neon Simple Wrap Watch.

    I am not so secretly coverting this piece:


    I find it so hard to find tops that suit me, and that I like – and this is both. It would be PERFECT. I’m always opening my wardrobe looking for a top to match whichever pants/skirt or shorts I am wearing, and I can never find what I am looking for. This piece is almost made for me! It’s a shame it’s way out of my price range :)

  37. December 12, 2011 at 5:33 am

  38. December 12, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Wow, what a generous give away!!

    If I were to win, I would buy this cuff from Sachin + Babi as it is more edgy than any other bracelets that I own!


    Good luck to everyone!

  39. December 12, 2011 at 10:08 am

    To end my obsession with it the only way is to own it! The Alexander Wang streamer skirt to open on Christmas day and swish about in at a NY eve party:)

    I am obsessed with Rag & Bone’s Utility bag in both its incarnations, the tartan (http://www.shopbop.com/utility-bag-rag-bone/vp/v=1/845524441910757.htm) and the grey (http://www.shopbop.com/utility-bag-rag-bone/vp/v=1/845524441909842.htm).

    It just feels like such a fresh, forward take on a bag/clutch and it’s not like any I’ve seen around. I know it’s not particularly summery, but I’d wear the tartan anyway ;)

    I would love the Chloe Paraty bag for Christmas. I have tried and tested the fake, loved it and I really hope one day I will be able to afford the real thing! It”s my dream bag :)


    Merry Christmas Dropstitch, Love your work xo

    My favourite item right now is Alexander Wang’s Emile Large Satchel in Azure, the perfect travel bag! http://www.shopbop.com/emile-large-satchel-alexander-wang/vp/v=1/845524441925570.htm?folderID=2534374302050950&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize&colorId=12670

    If Santa feel very generous I would love to get Yigal Azrouel Colorblock Gown with Slit in black & white, however I would settle for 6 Shore Road
    Bonfire Mini Dress, because dresses is all I will be wearing this summer!

    have been taking stolen glances at this most coveted bag on shopbop for about three months now. love the cute fold-over and wild fabric. swoooooon.


    oh, it would be a happy, happy christmas for me!

  47. December 15, 2011 at 10:42 am

    I’m coveting EVERYTHING by Phillip Lim – his classic designs are timeless! OR the Alexander Wang Lydia clutch – amazing!!


  48. December 16, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    I don’t even think ‘coveting’ is a strong enough word to describe my feelings towards these Acne leather pants. Maybe ‘infatuation’ or ‘true love’. Take your pick.

    I want ALL of the jewellery on ShopBop! Especially the Adia Kibur neon stone necklace or Monserat De Lucca rose bracelet- beautiful!
