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!

    In this horrible dreary weather, I’d say anywhere, really! Although I’d LOVE to go to Greece…I’d say Mexico is probably a more realistic bet.

    Sun and sand are always encompassing my thoughts. One day I hope that I am lucky enough to be able to bask in the warm glow of the mediterranean sun and say that I’ve been to the Côte d’Azur. Nothing says summer love more to me than the French Rivieria! If it was good enough for Coco Chanel, it’s more than enough for me. :)

    Southern Turkey. No, somewhere in Australia where I can hit the Great Barrier Reef. No, wait, Peru. Or, um, Thailand. Or Ibiza. Argh! I haven’t seen a beach in 3 years, I’ll take any one of them!

    My ultimate bikini destination would have to be Turks & Caicos! I’ve been dying to go there. On the other hand, I am going to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the end of April… so I guess I can’t complain!

    My ultimate bikini destination? That’s easy, send me to Greece. It’s number one on my “I must go here” list. Although that’s not likely to happen anytime soon, so I might as well drown my sorrows in a little shopping spree via Shopbop!

    Just got back from Maui and have been depressed ever since (stinky Vancouver weather). I definitely can’t wait to go back.

  • Reply Christina March 16, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    I’d love for my destination to be something exotic and faraway, but I think I can safely say it -will- be Miami. Miami is on the other side of the coast from where I am! I think it’d be a great vacation spot since I’ll finally be done with my undergraduate degree this week, I’ve never been to Florida, and best of all-I get to see one of my best friends! I can hang out on the beach in a super cute bikini and catch up since I rarely get to see her :)

    Great contest! I love Shopbop!
