What’s even more exciting than a Shopbop sale?

A Shopbop giveaway!


That’s right, my friends, Shopbop.com wants to give you a $100 gift card!

And while I may not be able to enter the contest, I can dream about it. Because I’ve got sunshine on my mind, I’d use the gift card to buy swimwear by Red Carter, Ondade Mar or Tyler Rose. Or maybe I’d just head straight to the Shopbop sale.

For one entry: Comment on this post and tell us what bikini destination you’re dreaming of. (Those of you who live on the beach in Malibu, it’s okay to say your backyard.)

For two entries: Write on The Anthology’s Facebook wall.

For three entries: Holler @TheAnthology on Twitter.

The contest is open to readers worldwide (the gift card is in USD). The lucky winner will be chosen on Wednesday, March 23. Good luck!

    After my last visit, whenever I think of my ideal beach, I think of Honduras. Sure it helped that we found a private beach that also happened to be a wilderness reserve and I made friends with a monkey named George but regardless, it’s bikini friendly.

    Now i’m off to facebook and twitter. xo

    I dream of being immersed in the beauty that is The Maldives.

  • Reply Lianna March 13, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Since Vancouver weather has been horrible lately, I’ll be down to go ANYWHERE warm. But if I had to choose one destination, it’d probably Hawaii. My cousins just came back from there, the pictures were amazing and they had a fabulous time.

    Great giveaway!

    I’m planning a trip to Vegas for May long weekend – while they don’t have any NATURAL beaches, their pools are pretty sweet & beach like…so I’ll keep dreaming of the warm desert air in between dodging downpours like this afternoon.

  • Reply Eleanor March 13, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    I love Shopbop! Amazing giveaway. The bikini destination I’m dreaming of is… practically any beach in Sydney, Australia! I love that place. Sigh….

  • Reply Liv March 13, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    ooh Shopbop and tropical getaway…my dream dream getaway would be the Maldives but I’ll happily take any of the hawaiian islands too.

    I’m DYING to go to Bali or Costa Rica. Actually, give me anywhere with sunshine at the moment and I’d be happy. Not as happy as if I won the Shopbop gift card, but pretty happy. ;)

    I’ve been researching my dream honeymoon (which will be happening some time this year!) and I’ve narrowed it down to Greece, Costa Rica, and Bali – all of which can accommodate swimsuits very well…

    Is it okay to wish for a tankini destination, cause this 40+ mom is pretty saggy in a bikini? Either way I’d love to sit my saggy bottom on a beach 0n the Island of Santorini Greece.

    I would love to wear my bikini in St. Lucia. I am thinking of sunny destinations to go to for my honeymoon, and winning this would help with costs post-wedding!

    While watching a TV show that featured the Seychelles Islands today I couldn’t help but dream of being there instead of in dreary Vancouver. Somewhere in Brazil would be nice too.

    I’m dreaming of my vacation to Finland later this year – and before you go “Finland, what kind of a bikini holiday is Finland,” let me say one word to you: saunas. I’m not getting in there naked with a bunch of Finnish strangers! My swimsuit is definitely coming along with me.

  • Reply Kate March 14, 2011 at 5:16 am

    I’ve never actually been anywhere tropical, so I’m not sure where it is I’m dreaming of… but as long as there is hot, hot sun and maybe some para-sailing, I’d be a happy girl!

    Japan, always and forever.

    It was a lifetime dream before I managed to go there, two years ago, and it’s still a dream for me now that I hope to go there again as soon as possible. I consider it almost as my second “virtual” home Country.

    If only I could go there now, and also help all those people try to build their life again I would be the happiest person in the world. I have a lot of friends there, I am so glad at least they are safe.

    Another place I’d like to go since I was a little child is New York! I hope I’ll manage to find 3 or 4 days for a quick visit on my own before next Winter!
