The Kaleidoscope Complete the Look Competition


I'm really pleased to be working with UK retailer Kaleidoscope on my first-ever competition giveaway. Kaleidoscope is a retailer that specialises in providing a unique edit of key fashion looks from the season for the mature, style-conscious woman. The lucky winner of this competition is going to win this entire everyday luxe look from Kaleidoscope!  To be eligible to win, you have to have a valid UK shipping address, as Kaleidoscope currently only ships within the UK. So if you are reading this from outside the UK, as I know many of you are, it may be time to get friendly with great aunt Myrtle in Cornwall.  Okay? Good. Here's how it works.

The competition will take place in two stages. In stage one, you, my highly-valued readers, will have a look at the above everyday luxe style board that I have curated from items from the Kaleidoscope website.  You'll notice there is one piece missing. Your job is to go to the Kaleidoscope website, and choose what you think the perfect piece would be to complete this look. Once you've made your selection, leave a comment in the comments section of the blog with your choice clearly stated (or a link, if you prefer).  This part of the competition will stay open for two weeks.

In stage two, after two weeks, the four best items that complete the everyday luxe look will be selected,  and will then be put to a vote. If more than one of you choose the same piece to complete the look, the first eligible person who posted that selection will be the chosen reader. The voting will again stay open for two weeks. After two weeks, the votes will be tallied, and the reader who completed the look with the most votes will win the entire look. I know, right!?

The overall budget for this look is £200. If we subtract the existing pieces from that total, that leaves you with £59 to spend on whatever you want; a bag, a jacket, a spare pair of flats...whatever! The choice is yours! So get shopping!

  1. That's a fabulous giveaway, Kristin! I love the style of the dress, that's exactly me and the matching pieces you've selected are equally fabulous.
    Difficult to make up my mind... I think the Fiorelli Grab Bag would be a great addition but for the colder season I'd probably need a jacket too, so I go for this Textured Gold Zip Jacket http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/textured-gold-zip-jacket/_/A-B14740_28
    That will leave me with a couple of £ for some cosmetics to endulge myself :-)
    My daughter is studying in London, no problem with a UK address :-)

    1. Thanks Annette! I'm really excited about this one too! I took ages picking the pieces, but I thought that a jersey dress is such a classic and looks good on so many people. And snake is a neutral if you ask me! Thanks for participating, and spread the word!

  4. I'm finding a relative in England so I'm throwing my entry in the mix! I would add the Fiorelli Grab Bag for 59. http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/fiorelli-grab-bag/_/A-89D267_

  5. I'm gonna say this:

    I also liked the blue biker jacket, but I thought it might cover up the cool sleeves of the dress too much. We'll just pretend it's spring and/or she is going to be walking around inside.

  11. I think http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/biker-style-quilted-jacket/_/A-49J280_12 - Biker Style Quilted Jacket would round off this outfit perfectly. It funks it up a little and is perfect for those Autumn evenings.

    http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/creation-l-jersey-cardigan/_/A-B11582_10 I like pairing this supple charcoal jersey cardigan with the dress which is of a similar knit. The simplicity of the cardigan plays well against the excitement of the snake print dress as well, and its tunic length adds movement and flow to the ensemble.

  24. A clutch bag always compliments an outfit and gives you something to do with your hands, so they're not left dangling or clasped together. Sorry, iPad just will not copy and paste urls .. Tempremental.

  26. Fabulous outfit which I think would be finished off nicely by the Textured Bowling Bag. The tassles would complement the necklace and the black and gold would all blend fantastically well. Very stylish! http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/textured-bowling-bag/_/A-11H809_

  27. I'd choose the new textured bowling bag. http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk/products/textured-bowling-bag/_/A-11H809_
    The tassles would complement the necklace, the black and gold would blend beautifully with the dress. Very stylish and would be just dandy for my birthday coming up!
