Recently I saw on Twitter that Little Mistress were running a Facebook competition. The prize: an item of clothing from their new-in range, inspired by all things Oriental.
Basically, you had to go to their Facebook page, where there was a Rafflecopter box with loads of things to do – simple things like following on Twitter and Instagram (which I’d already done). For each item on the list you completed, you were awarded a number of entries to the competition; obviously the more you did, the higher your chance of winning. I’m pretty sure I did them all.
I was on lunch at work at the beginning of last week, when I checked my phone and saw the following tweet:
And the winner of the oriental collection #competition is...@Luuuce_x Congratulations!! Look out for an e-mail from us x
As you can imagine, it certainly made my day – particularly as that day was a typical Monday! I went straight on the website, to have a look at what ‘prize’ I wanted – I was allowed to choose anything.
In the end, I went for this cream and black lace detail panel dress (usually £45) and it arrived 24 hours later (kudos to you, LM) – how efficient.
I went for dinner with the girls on Friday night, as a late birthday/catch-up meal and wore it then.
I love the panel style because it’s so slimming – particularly after three courses and copious glasses of wine and prosecco. The lace detailing on the shoulder is also very cute and the shoulder pads are barely there, so it doesn’t make me feel bulky or anything. You can’t go wrong with black and cream either, classic colours.Have you ever won a competition online? I’d love to hear what you’ve won.
