OOTD AUG 15•14













Top - Aritzia, Wilfred / Jacket - Aritzia, Community / Jeans - J Brand / Shoes - Steve Madden / Bangle, Wrap Bracelet, Bracelet, Earings - Folli Follie, Chapters, Aldo, Wildfox 

My Friday day off! Everything is new. I went back to Aritzia and got the jean jacket and pendelum top, among other things. This jean jacket is perfect for fall! It's already "warn-in" and I'v only had it on a few hours. I hate structured clothing, I find it too uncomfortable to wear. I like my clothing to be comfortable, cozy, and warm. How trendy is my halfie top knot by the way!?

*closed* FASHION-LOVER'S PACKAGE GIVEAWAY!!

One thing that I love doing is giving gifts that are, in my opinion, so good they are perfect. I love all the excitement from planning to seeing the receiver's reaction. Also, everyone knows I love packages in the mail because it is that much more exciting to be surprised at your door with some quality goodies. 

Seeing as I just passed my 1/2 year mark of blogging, I think it is an appropriate time to host my first giveaway! To all my readers who love the things I love, I want to give you a chance to win a package I would die to receive! This is all me, as I would put together a package for my fashionable and beauty-loving best friend! Yes Hannah, I'm thinking of items you'd gasp over! To be clear, I am using my own money and not being sponsored in any way.

The winner's package will look similar to the one below. This is something I put together for a friend last New Year's. Filled with items from Sephora, Aritzia, Marc by Marc Jacobs...

As you can see, I have a gift-giving spirit! I would love to keep everything a surprise, but to ensure the package is going someone who would truly love everything about it, some details to know are: 
1. The big item is from Holt Renfrew  
2. One item is from Aritzia
3. Includes jewellery 
4. Includes some of my Sephora must-haves 

If you are interested in a package from yours truly, author of Haut Monde, then here is how to enter:

(A) Follow my blog. You can do so on the right side-bar of my blog under "Followers" by clicking "join this site" or here (A requirement is to follow the blog - following me on bloglovin is not a requirement, just a welcomed bonus).

(B) Leave a comment on this post. I want to know my readers and what they like. Please name the city you live in (I'm curious because I only know what country my readers are from).  If you can, please mention your Instagram username and leave your blog URL because I would love to check them out. 

So that is it. (A) Follow my blog and (B) Leave any comment. I will be checking if both are done and choosing the winner at random on my own. This is my first giveaway and I want to build a sense of community and start a conversation with you guys. I hope to hear from you and I'm beyond greatful to have had the success I've had thus far on my blog. 

You need to know:

- It is open internationally.
- It is open now until August 30, 2014. 
- It is open to anyone over 16 years of age. 
- This package is set up for a girl. However, if you are a male reader and want to enter with a female friend in mind, that is ok.
