So there were 108 entries for the giveaway... I used to randomly select the number of the winner.

And the winner is.....


Congratulations Melanie!  Email me your contact information and I'll the ship the items!  Make sure to let me know which frame you love the best :)

Thanks to EVERYONE who entered!  I had so much fun reading the rules :)

Here are the "Rules All Preps Should Live By:"

“Bottoms up, Collars up” A must when guzzling G&Ts!

Being preppy is only temporary, so follow your dreams and see where they take you.

Be gracious and do things in good taste.

A smile is the best accessory

When someone asks you how you are doing, take the time to both respond and reciprocate.  It’s just nice to be nice!

Always present yourself in the best way possible, take pride in your appearance, but now I’m adding to be kind and gracious to everyone you come across.  A beautiful heart is more important than a beautiful outfit.

‘Tis better to be an Audrey Hepburn than a Pamela Anderson.

All preps should answer the phone with a smile, because you never know when the person on the other end could be having a terrible day.

One has to done: either your hair and makeup or dressing nicely

Ask someone how they are doing and really mean it!

Manners, manners, and more manners.

Good manners will open doors that money will not…

One should never leave without her pearls.

Always treat others how you would want to be treated!

You’re never fully dressed without a smile!

The magic words: Please and Thank You!!!

Don’t turn your nose at anyone; that is the sign of true class!

True style comes from being true to who you are.

There’s no outfit that can’t be improved with a little navy blue and some pearls!

Wait until DERBY weekend to wear white.  Not Easter!!

Live a colorful life and wear it well!

Treat others the way you want to be treated.  You only want to spread good energy around.

Pearls.  Pearls.  Pearls.

Never wear white until after Derby, not Easter.

Shop for classy, well-made items that will serve as staples for years to come. It's always better to spend a little more on an item that will last a lifetime than an item that is "in". If Paris Hilton would wear it, you might want to put it down. 

Always be kind.

When in doubt, pearls go with everything!

You can wear boat shoes with EVERYTHING!

The best accessory a prep can have is a smile, but pearls help too!

Pearls are a necessity!

Summer isn’t summer without sundresses, a signature cocktail, and a tan! 

Pearls are always appropriate!

Your outfits should always be classy and clean cut!

As promised... I'm opening up my Etsy store... But not until later tomorrow in the afternoon!  I'm heading off to bed now and I'm babysitting in the morning!

Goodnight!  Congratulations again Melanie!
