a giveaway! [custom made 18” moss wreath]— NOW CLOSED


As you all know, I have a big mouth. I LOVE to promote items that I am fond of & trust me when I say that if you have me on board as a happy customer, I will tell EVERYONE [that will listen] what a huge fan I am.

Which makes me super excited to announce this fun giveaway I’ve partnered with my friend Kilbi to bring you all. Kilbi is at the helm of Kilbi Branch Designs and she artfully hand creates THE MOST incredible custom wreaths. Plus she calls her craft wreathin’ which is without a doubt the cutest thing I’ve ever heard.

Using mesh, burlap, moss, and anything else she can tie and intertwine, KB makes these incredible works of art. Her blog houses a slew of past custom pieces to give you some idea of what she’s able to create specifically for you.

And here’s the fun part…

Kilbi Branch Designs is giving away one custom 18” moss letter to one lucky Unabashedly Uncorked reader! Super exciting, right?! Above is the (larger) moss “H” Kilbi made for our front door. I’m pretty obsessed.

To enter, simply follow the instructions on the widget embedded in my sidebar (over there on the righthand side; Tumblr readers, you’ll have to actually go to my site) or click here for your entry options. Winner will be announced on Monday, April 15th.

Additionally, Kilbi has generously extended a 10% discount to all readers so be sure to mention that when chatting with her about design options.

Good luck and happy wreathin’, gang!

((for the sake of transparency, this is not a sponsored post. I purchased my “H” from KBD))

a [Social Dress Shop] giveaway! NOW CLOSED


I’m partnering with Social Dress Shop to bring y’all a fancy, flirty little giveaway full of festive Holiday cheer! Now that’s what I call a fun to start your Tuesday afternoon, no!?

Social Dress Shop is a recently launched special online designer dress boutique based out of Charlotte, NC. Social Dress Shop prides itself on offering a hand-curated collection of party pretty dresses for a variety of occasions – from weddings to cocktail parties, holiday gatherings to showers, and date nights to nights out on the town. We love to mix big name designers with our favorite upstarts, always with an eye for beautiful shapes, gorgeous colors and unexpected details. Social Dress Shop always offers FREE 2-3 day shipping [high-five for expedited fashion!!!] 

I happen to have my eyes very strongly affixed to this Heidi Merrick Vegan Leather Mini— which is the perfect LBD for a day at the office or any Holiday gathering. And this Madison Marcus Gatsy dress— just screams “perfect New Years frock!” to me. 

To enter the giveaway, simply go to my website and follow the instructions in the info bar on the right side of the page. All you have to do is like Social Dress Shop & Unabashedly Uncorked on Facebook. Then, leave a note telling which frock you’d pick to hang front-and-center in your wardrobe. The winner will be announced here after 10 am on Thursday, December 13th.

Who’s up for a little excitment on a Monday morning?

no- not you? had too much fun celebrating Sunday Funday perhaps?

Anywho… remember last week when I announced the fantastic Sweetie Pie bracelet giveaway c/o Dress? Well, I come bearing the results. And I’m particularly excited for this winner because she just so happens to be an IRL friend of mine.

[here’s a photo of the random number genie just so y’all don’t think I went and picked favorites or anything]

CONGRATULATIONS TO MS RACHEL MATTHEWS on her newest piece of bling. Send me your address dear and I’ll get this in the mail to you, stat!

Happy Monday to the rest of you. Make it a great one.


You all know of my love for bracelets. Narrow or skinny, gold or gunmetal, chunky or elegant…

you name it and I’ll wear it!

So it makes perfect sense that the next jewelry giveaway [c/o Pam and my fabulous friends at Dress] is one that I could easily add to my ‘stack’.

This darling Sweetie Pie piece is hand crafted and designed by Dana (owner) and is named Becca. It’s a chain link gunmetal bracelet similar to the gold rope necklace I often sport and the rose-gold vintage bracelet I wear every single day. Because of it’s versatility, this could easily be worn with everything from an evening dress to shorts and flops. Your pick.

WSo, wouldn’t this be a darling addition to your jewelry box? I’d say so.

Here’s a few ways to win:

  • comment on this post [either by using disquis or your tumblr account]
  • like Dress on facebook [and drop me a line to let me know you did champagnetoasts@gmail.com]
  • reblog this post
  • tweet me and let me know how you would wear the Becca bracelet

The contest will close to participants on Friday, June 22nd at 5:00 pm and the winner will be announced Monday, June 25th. Good luck to everyone…

and three cheers for Tuesday give-aways!!!
