For you…

by mssinglemama on February 6, 2011

A Valentine’s Day Contest for you, my lovelies.

You have to keep reading for the details. The prizes are from local Columbus artists and I couldn’t be happier than to host a contest from my awesome home turf.

The prizes:

Your choice from The Fringe Outfitters. Up-cycled and organic. Yum and yum.

A slouch ($27.00)

or a rouched tunic ($31.00)

And both are made with organic fabrics and brought to you through Greg Turner II’s cool new clothing start up – Fringe Outfitters.  And yes, he’s as sweet as he looks.

Isn’t she lovely? The charms and swan-style clasp are hand made and the heart is hand stitched. The chain is just over 22″ and the pendant is about 1.5″ long.

My mistake everyone who commented above this comment – Sue’s prizes are limited to Clearance and Special Gift items only – so just let me know what you’d like from those sections if you are the winner.

Ali Tat February 7, 2011 at 8:43 am

The slouch, the slouch, the slouch! Just gorgeous…

And, the onyx and swarovski pearl earrings please. OMG my little peanut’s exiting toddler stage and I swear I haven’t worn earrings since she was a harmless little newborn! This just hit me the other day, actually. And I think it’s WAYYYYY overdue time for me to get back to accessory-ville. Now that she can resist the urge to YANK on everything.


Erin February 7, 2011 at 9:07 am

The slouch and the crystal, citrine and jade set from Sue’s clearance etsy store… I’m just not ready for heart shaped jewelry just yet.


Lauren February 7, 2011 at 9:20 am

The slouch looks so comfy and awesome. All of Sue’s jewelry looks gorgeous but I love the Opalite necklace and earrings.


eb February 7, 2011 at 9:21 am

Greg: love the slouch. Sue: love the clay flower earrings.


Susan February 7, 2011 at 9:47 am

I love Greg’s slouch in the chocolate. Brown really is the new black and that rich shade of chocolate is yummy.
I took a peek at Sue’s work and it is all very beautiful. I loved so many of her earrings, but I have to say the pendant you are featuring is what really caught my eye.
Happy Valentines everyone!


A.E. February 7, 2011 at 10:12 am

I just adore these hoop earrings on Sue’s site: ~ With a red dress…Sizzle!

And the black slouch looks great. Fingers crossed!!


Sara February 7, 2011 at 10:32 am

I love the tunic from Greg, and these earrings from Sue!


jen February 7, 2011 at 11:08 am

the tunic is gorgeous but i don’t think i could pull it off! i do love the tunic as well though! and i love the cherry drop hoop earrings [] in the special gifts. it was so hard to choose though!

The rouched tunic is adorable, and love the CCS shirt. Love it!

While there are many beautiful jewelry designs, the heart stole my heart. 🙂


Sara A. February 7, 2011 at 9:36 pm

I would love to have the black slouch, and the leather heart pendant is really beautiful. I love how unique it is! I can tell that it is the type of piece that people would ask “ooh, where did you get that from??”


Brittany February 7, 2011 at 10:14 pm

Greg Turner II’s slouch is soo adorable. I would wear it with some skinny jeans and ballet flats to chase around my little Jade, which is a reason why I love this necklace that’s made with Jade (my daughters name!) by Sue Lacy.


Brittany February 7, 2011 at 11:48 pm

So cute! Tunic. And I love Sue’s crystal, citrine, and jade necklace & earrings (clearance section).


Leigh February 8, 2011 at 7:51 am

I think the gray slouch and heart pendant necklace with a pair of jeans screams stylish yet oh-so-comfy! Both designers have great products (love the A-line dress which would look wonderful with the pink glass bead necklace) and both have bookmarked for future investments!


SavoredLife February 8, 2011 at 9:11 am

Ack. I thought I “entered”… ;p

Tunic and heart pendant: LOVE. <3

Creative. Organic. Flirty. The perfect Valentine combination to showcase local peeps and gift a reader!

You rock. 🙂

Love the slouch! Slouch in black would be darling on me 🙂 And the heart pendant is lovely and I would give it to my friend who’s husband had a heart transplant a couple of years ago (at 40 years old). We are collecter’s of all things hearty now and the pendant is really something special. Thanks for the oppotunity!


Diana February 8, 2011 at 7:32 pm

Drew February 9, 2011 at 10:42 am

Tunic and heart pendant. Who needs a valentine when you can have those?!?!?!


Olivia February 9, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Wow- Sue and Greg…you both have amazing designs! It was difficult for me to narrow down which designs I loved most.

Greg- I love the slouch and wow- that dress! But for daily city attire- I vote for the slouch!

Sue- beautiful jewelry designs…I would rock any of them. My fave is definitely the heart pendant!


Sue February 9, 2011 at 4:57 pm

I just want to say good luck to everyone, and I’ve just been blown away by all the awesome comments. It’s been so much fun to follow along. I was a single mom with three young girls for a few years, and I wish there had been a blog like this and a supporting community like you back then. You rock!


Anna February 9, 2011 at 5:35 pm

I would choose the slouch and the Crystal, citrine, and jade necklace and earrings from Sue’s site. Beautiful stuff.
