Kitten Dress Giveaway for Valentines Day!






Vintage Valentine Cards with Funny MessagesVintage Valentine Cards with Funny Messages



I thought it was about high time I had a little giveaway on my blog.
With Valentines Day being just around the corner I thought it would be perfect to give one lucky reader the opportunity to win their very own custom made Kitten Print Dress!

The cute as a button print on this dress reminds me so much of Vintage Valentines, combined with the White Peter Pan collar it would be the perfect number for moonlit romancing or even just lounging around gorging on those little love heart candies....

All you have to do to enter is follow my blog and leave a comment, it can be anything you like ( Kudos to anyone that shares Valentines horror stories! )

For additional entries you can:
- mention this giveaway on twitter (leave a link in the comments)
- mention this giveaway on your own blog (leave a link in the comments)
- like Katie-Louise Ford on Facebook (leave an additional comment)

The giveaway is open to all readers and the winner will be drawn on January 25th via random number generator. Good luck xx

  1. What an amazing giveaway! That dress is adorable!
    I can't think of any Valentines Day horror stories... I guess I wanted to put them out of my brain forever! LOL
    Cute though... My Mom always got me a box of Elvis chocolates when I was little for Valentines Day :O)

  2. I'm following! Even though I already have a kitten dress, I'm sure I could think of someone close to me who really deserves one :)

    My Valentines horror story is too long-winded and convoluted to tell in full, but it ends with me crying, soaking wet and shoeless, outside a youth hostel in a foreign city.

  4. That dress is so.freaking.cute
    It looks like the kind of dress that would lead to a pretty sweet valentines experience :)

  5. Ahhhh this is adorable! My Valentine's horror was walking in on my newly married mum doing the horizontal jig (and I think maybe just maybe making my October born baby bro). My (seventeen year old) boyfriend was with me and saw all as well, we recovered by watching a disney movie. xx

  6. This dress is just beautiful, two Valentines ago I went ice skating with my boyfriend in Montreal on a frozen lake at 7am. It was a Sunday I think, and the most romantic thing that has ever happened. Not a horror story, sorry!

    1. Ruby May this sounds beautiful! I am hoping to visit Montreal later this year, fingers crossed i'll get to go ice skating :)

  9. My valentines day horror story involves receiving a white plush gorilla who's eye's would glow red and would wolf whistle as you walked past it. I liked the boy who it gave it to me so much that I never told him how actually terrifying that gift was.

    1. Imogen this sounds terrifying.. But at the same time I wouldn't be upset if I received such a gift ;) hehe

  10. My, what a beautiful dress! I'd love to wear this on a special Valentine's date this year!

    My Valentine's Day last year was not what I expected at all... I was all set to celebrate with my new boyfriend (we had been together for about a month at the time). I bought him a copy of The Great Gatsby because it's one of my favorite books. We had planned to go out to dinner - but he fell and broke his ankle on some ice that afternoon, and we spent most of Valentine's Day in the ER! Well, we shared a romantic vending machine soda in the waiting room :)

    Best,
    Danielle

  13. Dear Katie Louise Ford,

    I LOVE this lovely dress.

    In fact I choo choo choose you.

    ps. Every valentines day I buy my man a bucket of his fave trash food- fried chicken and I even help him eat it. I actually really hate fried chicken!

  15. Oh Oh I love this dress!!! I don't have any Valentine's horror stories, other than the 10 years I spent not having anyone to share it with! Nowadays, I dress up in a fancy dress and my boyfriend rents a tuxedo and we have 'prom' at home. He went to this weird school where dancing wasn't allowed (kind of like Footloose) so he had no prom. The whole point is to recreate that (even though it's just us). lol we're a couple of weirdos :)

  26. I have followed, and tweeted (I am @perditaspursuit on twitter). I haven't got any really exciting stories about Valentine's day. I used to flatshare with a girl who would regularly get about 35 cards, all unique!! She was a mad rock chick, lots of guys were scared to chat her up so I guess Valentine's was her day for anon cards.

      Vintage valentines are just about one of the best things in the world (next to cats) so it's kinda perfect really.
      I love vintage valentines so much I have 2 tattoos inspired by them..a sewing kitty and a panda riding a bike, hehe, with another 2 or 3 planned for the future, I just love the cuteness of the art from them, and the corny words and sayings haha.
