100th Post Giveaway--and my December Wishlist

Happy December everyone!!! I am so excited for the holidays this year and how fun that my 100th post would land on the first day of this holiday month!!! Today I have a fun giveaway to honor of my 100th post I have decided to giveaway a $25 gift card to my favorite store, Anthropologie! In addition, I'll throw in a few holiday goodies, since it is December after all.

To enter my giveaway you must do the following:

1. You must be a follower of this blog. If you aren't already simply click on the "follow" button on right side bar.

2. Leave a post in the comment section of this post telling me one item that is on your Christmas wish list this year. It can be anything...clothes, accessories, household items...anything. Please also include your email address so I can contact you if you win.

3. This contest runs from Wednesday, December 1, 2010 to Sunday night, December 5, 2010 at midnight, PST. A winner will be announced and contacted on December 6, 2010. A winner will be chosen randomly from all the entries.

4. Only one entry per person. Feel free to share this giveaway information with your friends in the blog community....the more the merrier!

5. Must be 18 years old or older to enter

*This contest is not sponsored or endorsed by Anthropologie. The gift card is being bought and purchased by the owner of Found in My Closet

Let the entries begin! Since I"m asking you what's on your Christmas wish list, I figured I'd leave you with mine.

Here are the Anthro items that MAY be mine if they hit sale this month...12 items for the 12 days of Christmas! =)

1. Easy Keeper Skirt--this is at the top of my wish list...LOVE!!!

2. Volante Tee--love this in purple and tan but purple will win out on this one.

3. Anticipation Heels--will these EVER go on sale??

4.Refined Cord Shirtdress--a great winter piece that looks so cute with boots.

5. Winter Beauty Pullover--this will most definitely NOT hit sale yet but I love it!

6. Alluring Sway Skirt--a great basic to have!

7. Field Skirt--I LOVE this in gold...come on sale, hurry up!

8. Glowing Leaf Skirt--I have a few combinations in my head for this one.

9. Floral Frappe Top--like this in green...I don't have hardly any green in my closet.

10. Akome Top--A very cute print to throw underneath a cardi.

11. Sweeping Stitch Heels--SWOON!!! Gorgeous color and super fun design!

12. Leaving this one open...I'm debating over a few things for this last spot so if you have an idea of what I should slide into spot #12 I'd love to know! =)

So there you have ever growing wish list. December is the month I'm gonna be good. Hopefully not everything on this list hits sale in one week...that would be BAD! I certainly am not allowed to buy everything on this list...these are just my options.

Can't wait to hear about all the great things you have on your wish lists!


  1. Great giveaway- Congrats on the 100th post!!

    For Christmas, I want a tan pair of Heritage Ballet flats from Land's End Canvas. I have a feeling I got them!! haha!

  2. First time poster here. I love your blog! It is great to see all these stylish mom blogs!

    I really love that floral frappe top too. I would also love to get one of the scarf tees from Anthro too!

  3. I have been a long time follower- love your blog! Congrats on your 100th post! My wishlist is all Anthro which is tricky for my hubby since I like to hold out for a sale- I am especially waiting for the Jacinth Sweater Dress.

  4. Congrats - 100 posts - wow!

    The number one thing on my wishlist this year is a pair of Flannery flannel ballet flats from JCrew. I found a pair on ebay, and am trying to figure out how to convince my husband to buy them for me!

  5. Congratulations on your 100th post! As a fellow mom, I find your quest to be fashionable yet practical, all while not breaking the bank, very relatable.

    I am loving three of the skirts you listed! But my number one wishlist item is probably the Wightwick Manor Dress. I ordered it today, so if it fits me well it will be under my tree!

    Thank you for the generous giveaway, and thanks for the style inspiration!
    P.S. I am a follower.

  6. I'm a follower! :) Congrats on your 100th post -- amazing how fast they add up, hey? Yahoo, what a great giveaway! Most of my wishlisted items are at Anthro right now, top one being the Refind Cord Shirtdress in red. Love all of your picks so much! My email is mcullen7318 at

  7. I am a follower. I am not really sure what I want for Christmas this year. I would love to have the whole house painted (interior) since I just moved in last year and haven't done it yet.

  8. Congrats on your 100th post. I am currently resisting the fur cable vest form LOFT.
    I am a follower and enjoy seeing your outfits for inspiration. Jennifer

  9. You know I'm a follower :) I'm hoping for some LOFT giftcards so I can shop!

  10. Yay for 100 posts! I love reading your blog since I can't be there to shop with you. My wish list item is a trip back home. Won't get it in time for Christmas so I'll have to settle for whatever the BX has in stock. LOL!
    PS- if you need to get rid of stuff in your closet to make room for the new things you can send it to me!

  11. Congrats on 100 posts! I've always loved your blog, you have such great style! Of course I'm a follower and I'm hoping for the frill force jacket for christmas so I NEED it to go on sale soon!

  12. Congrats on 100 posts and thanks for offering such a great giveaway! I don't own anything from Anthropologie, so I really hope that I win! On my wish list is a car cover....seriously. My car sits outside and I don't like scraping frost off the windshield in the morning. I am a blog follower and my email is applesandpencilskirts(at)yahoo(dot)com

  13. Congrats on this great milestone!!! I subscribe to your blog via my Google Reader. My Christmas list includes a lot of Anthro items, but the Darjeeling Skirt is definitely at the top of the list.

    One of the things on my wishlist is a dutch oven. rmkunkel at gmail dot com

  16. I'm a follower now =) Was already a faithful stalker if that makes you feel good.
    I hope I don't sound like a total brat by saying I really don't have anything on my Christmas list this year, but we've spent so much $ lately on the house and other random items! My husband got me a new phone and that is ENOUGH.

  17. I would like to have the entire Anthro store as my closet. Is that a wish too big?? :)

    Seriously, I'd like to have the Network Dress, the crinkled corona mary janes, or the hallowed halls oxfords.

  18. I'm a follower! Love your blog! You have such cute style. On my Christmas wishlist is a Michael Kors watch. I'm not counting on getting it but I have been wanting one for awhile! Great giveaway!

  19. I follow your blog via Bloglovin. You inspire me with your style. :)

    It is wishful thinking as both my husband and I are laid off right now...but I am hoping for a Loft giftward to do some clothes shopping. I am interviewing so I need to dress to impress!

    We often get one big ticket item for birthdays or a holiday and pulled the trigger on a treadmill a few days ago, so...done. Now let's just see if we use it.

  63. Hi Jenni, I am a follower, and I would like to enter your giveaway. One of the items on my Xmas list is a Thermos Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler - 14 oz. I have one that I use everyday for almost 20 years and I love it. It's getting old and a little dirty looking. So I want a new one to replace this one. Over the years I have tried many other travel mugs, but I still prefer this one. It's the best.
