Personal Shoppers - A Giveaway!

This should be FUN!!

Okay, I need a little blog reader help. I have this shoot coming up for my spot on PBS's Beads Baubles & Jewels. I just received info in the mail telling be all about the what nots of being on tv. Of course, I flipped right to the spot about what to wear!! LOL. The criteria is tough, so I need your help!!

I know y'all are a bunch of wild web surfers... find me something to wear! I need a top that can fit the terms and conditions below. You leave me a comment with a link to a website telling me what you found that you think will work. You have read my blog... so you know "me" and you have seen plenty of photos of me so you know what I like. Put you knowledge to good use.

Here is what it has to be or rather NOT be:
1 - NOT black, white, or red (not even a white tank top under a button up, though a black one would be okay if it is with another color)
2 - 3/4 to full length sleeves, no short sleeves or sleeveless (apparently it is very unflattering to everyone)
3 - the camera like jewel tones or bright colors, pastels are only so-so
4 - Avoid large florals or geometric prints
5 - no tiny stripes, polka dots, or check (they 'dance' on the screen)
6 - has to be able to accommodate a microphone
7 - nothing heavy or warm, lighting is HOT
8 - try to make it reasonable priced, let's say under $80, please

Now, to make finding me what to wear worth wild... I am going to do a giveaway!! I haven't decided what I will send you, but it will be good. Which ever top I decide to order will decide the winner.

Get to surfing and find me a shirt!!

I saw this top on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26399019 So pretty and it's custom made and you get to pick the colors. It would be perfect to show off one of your beautiful necklaces! Sure enjoy your blog, I hope to be a customer someday!

How fun!
I think you should go with something like this:
http://www.jjill.com/jjillonline/product/itempage.aspx?item=F72986&PFID=11&BID=S2009154161757C7D401853A8F4F6992204C&h=M&sk=M
It's lightweight, and a nice neutral color that you can punch up with some cool jewelry.

When my girlfriend did the segment for TV on Vicki Payne, the camera people told her to wear a bold color, like a peacock or turqoise blue. Love this one, 3/4 sleeve

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26570602 (comes in a gazillion other colors than red…$70)

I also found this Etsy seller Ureshii who makes amazing things that I think are really reasonable for custom made (might have to purchase something for me!)
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26486189 (can be made in all sorts of colors…the sleeve detail is cool…and the neckline is great to show off your fabulous jewelry...$48)

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26469750 (I am really digging the stuff by this artist! This one is in Fuschia which is oh so pretty…loads of color options…love the tie belt and the neckline!...$46)

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26399019 (again…oh so pretty silhouette…and that color would be great on you!...$48)

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26306711 (and this one? Reversible for different necklines and the sleeves can be worn long or pushed up!...$46)

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24531420 (again, a reversible top…great purple color…$46)
Can't wait to see how you look in the one you pick! Enjoy the day! Erin

I am in love with this site because I can spend hours playing with the design studio. You can choose fabric, colour, parts and they will make it to your measurements. And you can edit all the models (not sure if you need to register to do that). I have one blouse and one dress from them and they are made very well.

Hey Kerry
If I didn't spend so much time looking through what others have found/suggested, maybe I'd have some time to surf around for ideas for you too! What a great idea...bloggers turned personal shoppers! Can't wait to see what you decide on!

This was fun! 2 toned top, very thin would be nice instead of just a solid and a great sale price:
