Giveaway: Summer Tribal Maxi Dress

I purchased this dress off MyAsho.com | A wonderful site that supports African designers. It was the last one, and I grabbed it – knowing that I already have one similar.

So, yes, I bought it for a lucky Style Pantry reader. You all have been such a supportive & positive bunch, thought I’d do something nice.

Thank you for interacting and spending time with me on Twitter, Facebook, and here on Style Pantry. I know most of you by name now 🙂

The dress is a UK 12, which is a US size 8.

To win, name three of my favorite stores/brands to shop. I mention them a lot in posts, so this should be easy. If more than one person gets it right, I’ll pick a winner at random and announce on Wednesday, the 22nd. Good luck. xoxo

    Hello there!
    Probably it isn’t international, but in case: Zara (who doesn’t like Zara?), H&M and Free People (I don’t have this store in my country). I would like to win this dress, because maxi dress is my must have for this Summer and I like green colour so much! Thank you for doing this giveaway, even if I can’t enter. Have a nice day!

    What was the answer? I just started following you 3 weeks ago and I can see that Zara is number one, ASOS (which I love) and vintage/thrift clothing.
