Wednesday giveaway!

Today's giveaway is from LemLem, an amazing handcrafted clothing collection. When model/actress Liya Kebede discovered that weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs because of declining local demand for their goods, she started LemLem as a way to preserve the ancient art of weaving and help these traditional weavers thrive. (Look at their amazing dresses and bags!)

Today LemLem is offering this Mara Smock Shirt ($213), a lightweight, handwoven top with bold stripes and 3/4 length sleeves. The shirt comes in pink, blue or orange. Which color would you choose?

For a chance to win, please visit LemLem and leave a comment below. A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! xo Update: Michelle E. is our lucky winner.
