And the winner is...
Michelle Ornelas, a "practically 35-year-old" who has lived in the Tampa Bay area for four years!
Back on Dec. 8, Michelle and her friend Misty, a reservist in the military, went to a holiday party at the Tampa Club. The Deal Divas unanimously agreed that they looked uber-stylish in their outfits. We especially liked Michelle's look, which was fun, hip, and featured our latest obsession - tights!
Here's the back story, in Michelle's own words:
"We scored these beautiful dresses at Windsor in Brandon Mall. My dress was $40 and includes the killer trend I’ve been adoring as of late, LEATHER (in my case, FLEATHER -- fake leather) piecing! I think the texture does wonders to give any outfit that subtle edge. The top was soft enough to make me feel pretty while the bottom was rocker enough for my inner wild child. I paired it with a pretty pair of patterned tights I picked up at Beall's for $3. I had a pair of oxford-like heels that matched the sheen of my FLEATHER bottom that I found at DSW clearance for less than $20 last year. Altogether I was very pleased with the total outfit and it was under $50."
Well done, Michelle. Your $50 Kohl's gift card is in the mail!
And thanks to everyone else who participated in the contest. It was a tough choice, but we thought that overall, Michelle captured the spirit of Deal Divas best.
We may do more of these in the future. Have a great weekend everyone!
