Giveaway - Necklace from Bear and The Honeybee

Last night, Emma's outfits were all about the brooches. And no one styles brooches better than Leigh, from Bear and The Honeybee.

Once again, Leigh has offered a fabulous giveaway to WWEPW. One lucky winner will be wearing this gorgeous necklace very soon!

The Eleanor (shown in Sunshine)

For those who might not be familiar with Leigh's work, she finds the most amazing Emma-inspired vintage brooches and styles them into necklaces that reflect Emma Pillsbury's outfits. So clever, right? Check out these necklaces, inspired by looks from Bad Reputation, The Rhodes Not Taken (my favorite), and Born This Way. There are lots more in her shop, so be sure to poke around!

Leigh will create The Eleanor in the colorway of the winner's choice - Black, Magenta, Apple Green, or Yellow.

AND, as if that isn't enough, Leigh is generously offering a 10% discount to WWEPW readers for anything in the shop. Just enter coupon code WWEPW10 at checkout.

How to Enter:

1. Visit Leigh's shop, Bear and The Honeybee. If you're looking for the perfect unique holiday gift for someone, this is the place.

Emma Pillsbury Fashion ID - I Kissed A Girl

When your husband makes you screencaps of Emma's outfits because you can't watch Glee, you know you married the right man.

Looks like tonight was all about big brooches and the color red.

I haven't looked closely, but I think this red sweater is Kate Spade. The fish brooch must be vintage. It's too awesome to be anything but.

Kate Spade Wool Martingale Sweater - $195

Reprising the LRD. This time, with a gigantic flower brooch that is AH-MA-ZING. Again, probably vintage.

Day Dress by Valentino - no longer available

Also, someone please give this season's hair stylist an Emmy Award now. Kthx.

Emma Pillsbury Fashion ID - I Kissed A Girl Promo Picture

Ooooh. A new color scheme. Orange and caramel. LOVE.

Other than her Juicy Couture Stacked Flower Rings and Vintage Sarah Coventry Bittersweet Brooch, I'm not recognizing any of the clothing by sight.

Could be the J.Crew Cashmere Crewneck Cardigan in Heather Caramel over the orange bow blouse (or dress), but I'm not convinced.

Let's find these clothes, WWEPWers!

Also WTH is going on with Will's hair here? Did Dippity-Do come back in style and no one told me?

More importantly, where are his chocolate chip cookies? He probably ate them first. Boyfriend cannot resist a chocolate chip cookie.

"I Kissed A Girl" airs November 29.

Giveaway - Shabby Apple Pencil Skirt

Hooray! The wonderful folks at Shabby Apple have generously offered another giveaway!

This time, it's their most Emma-worthy of garments, and I know you're going to love it. One lucky winner will receive this fabulous skirt:

Francine Pencil Skirt

We know. You need a wardrobe staple as fashionable as it is functional, sticking it out rain or shine, season to season, year after year. Make it timeless, make it versatile, but please don't make it boring. Enter Francine, the antidote to your deepest wardrobe doubts. Cut in canvas twill the perfect thickness for all-season wear, this high-waisted black pencil skirt needed only a smart bow topping to fulfill the measure of its waist-defining, hip-slimming, eye-catching creation. Skirt made of 100% canvas twill.

Along with the Francine, I'm especially loving the matte satin Summer Break Skirt and the fabric of the Humboldt Current Skirt.

Emma Pillsbury Fashion ID - The First Time

In three seasons of Glee, I've only missed watching three episodes at air time. Once when my husband and I went to a hockey game, and the last two episodes.

See, I decided to go back to school to work on another Master's degree. Because one wasn't enough. If I knew that decision was going to infringe on my Glee-watching time for the next eight weeks, I might have chosen a hobby instead. Like latch-hooking.

I just got home, and thanks to my wonderful husband who took screenshots of Emma's outfits with his phone and texted them to me in class, at least I can see what she wore.

This one was easy:

Kate Spade Anemone Josie Dress - no longer available

Polka Dot City!

What's that blouse she's wearing with the red J.Crew double-serge pencil skirt? I have no idea, but we need to find out. The sweater looks vaguely F21. Drop me an email or leave a comment if you recognize either one of these pieces, please!?

Update: Thanks to my good friend The Possessionista, who got the scoop from Glee stylist Lou Eyrich, the sweater is Red Valentino, and the blouse is Valentino Roma. (Thanks to an anonymous WWEPWer for the link to the cardigan in black!)

LOVING the hair. So old Hollywood.

And now to avoid spoilers until I can watch the episode sometime tomorrow. Was it as good as everyone expected?

For more Glee fashion, get Rachel and Quinn's clothes in "The First Time" from fashion blog Possessionista!
