Haute Khuuture turns 1 today!!!

Friday, April 15, 2011


This time last year I was fresh off the show, back from New York, and seemingly in limbo until I mustered up the verve to finally commit to Haute Khuuture's very first post. A year before that I had never even heard of a fashion blog, hadn't a clue what blogging entailed, and don't even get me started on RSS feeds and followers (to which I must admit I still understand very little of). Yet here we are, 365 days, 29,800+ views, 272 entries, and hundreds of newfound friends later...I am one happy-go-lucky Haute Khuuturier :D 

It never started as a numbers game, but looking back and seeing how much I've accomplished in so little time, I'm proud to claim ownership of one of THE BEST PROJECTS I've executed to date. And to THANK YOU ALL so very much for being there from day one, two, ten, or day 365, I'm hosting my very first giveaway where you can win the clothes off my back and some fun little trinkets that go along with it. What's up for grabs? Some of your past favorites...Peep it out and holla at your girl!

What to do:
1) Become a follower of Haute Khuuture on Google Friend Connect and/or Bloglovin'
2) Check out the ensembles below and comment with your name, email, and which post you'd like to win
3) Make sure you comment with your first and second choice, I will try my best to give all winners their first choice
4) 8 winners (YES 8!!!) will be randomly chosen next Friday April 22 and notified by email


1) Float Like a Butterfly: Cropped Printed Cotten Linen Urban Outfitters Jacket (size Medium) and Express Multi-layered Bracelet (no size)


2) Sunday Sabbatical: Vintage Red Long Sleeved Tunic (size 10) and Shop the Look's Calamity Jewel Necklace (no size)


3) Season's 52: Vintage Leopard Blouse (size Medium) and Jessica Simpson Multi-Chain Gold and Pearl Necklace (no size)


4) The Capital Grille: Vintage Floral Black Dress (size 12) and Forever 21 Gold Cuff (no size)


5) Fashioning Fashion: Forever 21 Maxi Dress (size Medium), Pair of Forever 21 rings (not pictured, size 7)


6) Girl Power Conference: Vintage Lavender Tie-Neck Billow Sleeved Sheer Blouse (size Large) and Vintage Silver Cuff Bracelet (not pictured)


7) Octopus Sushi: Imaginary Voyage Tunic (size S, fits like a large Medium), Banana Republic Ruby and Gold Ring (size 8)


8) Oh When the Saints: Wet Seal Sample Blazer (size Small) and Pair of Forever 21 rings (size 6,7)

Contest open to all US and International followers

  13. I love all the outfits! I'm just here to get a dose of living out loud... and even if I don't always have time because of the bust schedule. When I do... It reminds me to live with expression and be myself and that is a great gift in itself. Thanks Haute Khuuture and Super Duper Congratulations on you 1st Birthday!!!
