*Update 5/6/2011: The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Jenn B who left the winning comment as determined by random.org. Out of 22 eligible entries, she was the winner! Thanks to all who entered the giveaway and thank you again to everybody for reading the blog.
Who would have thought it would all start with a requirement? The assignment was to choose a show in a television genre one was unfamiliar with and by chance, I happened to choose the number one soap on the air, The Young and the Restless. I tuned in during the Sharon and Ashley baby swapping storyline and needless to say, I was immediately hooked. It was no wonder this show had been on the air for over thirty years. And I am sure I am not the only one who is hoping it will stay around for thirty more!
Given my background and knowledge of fashion, I was instantly drawn to the clothes on the show. I found myself spending way too much time looking for a particular dress or a jacket. I came to the conclusion that if I was going to spend my time this way, I might as well share my finds with others who were likely looking for the same piece. Thus, The Young and the Stylish blog was born.
I want to thank The Young and the Restless wardrobe department because they do a phenomenal job. I also want to thank each and every person who reads the blog. Whether you have requested a particular item, shared an outfit you have found, or left a comment, you have all helped make the blog what it is today. To show my appreciation, I have decided to give away the one item that I have received the most requests for the entire year the blog has been in existence. A necklace so coveted, that it sold out at lightening speed on QVC last summer after Sharon wore it on the soap. A necklace so popular that it even made a recent appearance at Sharon's "funeral."
I present you with the opportunity to win Sharon Case's Pave Starfish Pendant in goldtone from her jewelry collection on QVC called POMP.
(The actual necklace you have a chance to win is the one pictured below. It is brand new and has only been taken out of the package for this photograph. The winner will get everything in the picture. For a description and details about the necklace including the measurements, please visit www.qvc.com )
