If you’ve ever ogled the pages of
A Place In the Sun
, many synapses simultaneously fire in your brain. First, you’re seethingly jealous of all Mr. Aaron’s achingly chic subjects. Second, you want to plot a rendezvous somewhere OTT like Sardinia or Mustique, stat. Third, you’d like a new glam wardrobe for the aforementioned escape artistry. Well, guess what? Today could be your lucky day to bask in some ritzy, swag-filled rays á la those pages…
Two of our beloved designers are teaming up to bestow a look upon you that could be worthy of its own iconic portrait someday! Resort wonder-ware line Suboo had Slim’s pics in mind when drumming up spring ’13. And the result is right on the money with the luxe L.A. girl — saturated hues (think mint gelato with a splash of lemon) in flowy silhouettes, a few borderline-scandalous-yet-still-classy bustiers, and killer caftans for kicking it on any beach. And, we all know you wouldn’t be channeling C.Z. Guest or Tina Onassis properly without adding a few opulent gems to your waterfront ensemble. That’s why Suboo’s picture-perfect complement is Gemma Redux, the bold fantasy-land bauble brand — and they regularly tag team the runways together.
We know what you’re thinking: Get to the part where we score the free shizz! Okay, so all you have to do is email your most fit-for-a-queen (read fab-u-lous) vacation photos to Sarah.St.Lifer@refinery29.com with the subject line GIVEAWAY. Please include your top picks for a piece of both the bling and the frocks featured in the following slideshow, and we’ll choose a winner on Christmas Day (how’s that for a holiday pressie?). Now, all that’s left to do is pack your bag and book it to Biarritz! Au revoir!

There are only 29 shopping days left ’til the best holiday of the year: Halloween. 29! If you’re anything like us, you’ve only just begun to think about your award-winning costume. But, you’re in luck because we’ve got our hands on a major dose of inspiration. Dark Shadows, the cult-television-show-turned-film (starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Chloë Grace Moretz), comes out today on DVD and it’s chock-full of a groovy, goth-y aesthetic we can’t get enough of.
Before we plop in front of the flat screen and devour a cauldron full of popcorn, it’s your turn to get in on the action. Comment below and tell us the coolest, spookiest Halloween costume you’ve ever donned. We’ll pick a winner at random, and they’ll receive the ultimate inspiration for this year’s costume: a Blu-ray copy of Dark Shadows, plus a little funding to make this the coolest Halloween ever — a $ 200 American Express gift card. Just be sure to mention us when you’re accepting your award for best costume at this year’s bash. Now, to the comments!
It’s Friday, yay! After the holiday, Thursday sure felt like another Monday, and no one wants two Monday’s in one week. In case you’re still recuperating from the 4th (or the ‘second’ Monday) we’ve got a sweet Friday treat. When Charlotte came to our studio for the amazing photo shoot, one of our designers hand painted ‘Be Free’ on this super cute varsity jacket and we’re giving you the chance to win this original piece worn by Charlotte herself!
All you need to do is answer this question: What is the #hashtag associated with Charlotte Free for Forever 21? Hint, hint.
