giveaway. pop basic.

It wasn't enough for Queenslander Madeline Veenstra to establish the now hugely popular fashion version of Wikipedia, Wikifashion in 2010.  Fuelled by her entrepreneurial spirit and drive for success, she has set out to take on her next major project Popbasic, a monthly subscription parcel to help you build your basics collection. Noticing the growing popularity of beauty based parcels, Veenstra found a gap in the fashion market and so Popbasic was formed. The first campaign features my talented blogger buds from Sargasso Sea, Kellie (model) and Bianca (stylist) with a really sweet video to accompany these equally picturesque shots.

Think of it as your very own fashion care package (and who doesn't love receiving a bit of mail in the post these days?) complete with a staple fashion item, two trend pieces and an extra spesh surprise to see you through the month. Three items will set you back a mere $50 - $100 along with free shipping to Aussie and US addresses. It's not a subscription service (so you're not locked in to anything) and the best part is you're free to purchase items individually if something so happens to take your fancy. 

Popbasic have very kindly offered Flourished & Sunkissed a beta pack (including the polka dot shirt, green beaded necklace and the yellow and gold twist necklace as pictured above) to giveaway to one lucky reader.

To be in the running all you have to do is:
1. Save your spot on the Pop Basic site (you'll receive $10 credit for your first purchase so everyone's a winner really!)
2. Like Flourished & Sunkissed on Facebook or follow me on Bloglovin'.
3. Comment below with your name and email address letting me know you've signed up.
For an extra entry tweet @pop_basic and @_melissao and tell us how you would style one of the collection pieces.

The giveaway is open to readers worldwide. Entries close Friday 16th November, 8pm AEDST.

  12. Popbasic sounds like such a cool idea - I love that polka dot blouse, it's super cute..!


  13. Liked your FB! Elizabeth Rice (though my fb name is Elizabeth Anne),

  14. Madeline established Wikifashion? Ooooh, that's so cool! I can't tell you how many times I've been saved by Wikifashion as I frantically tried to learn more about the bloggers I follow. That's not weird or anything right? Nothing wrong with getting to know someone :)
    Oh dear, I'm just making myself sound like a freaky stalker now...I better quit while I'm ahead.

    Before I started rambling and babbling nonsense, I wanted to talk about how cool Popbasic sounds.
    I really like the idea of little fashion care packages every month! The idea kind of reminds me of things like Shoemint or Stylemint but I love that you aren't bound to Popbasic every month.
    Cute pieces and mail? I like it already!

    That polka dot shirt is mega cute and those necklaces are seriously lush. I would love to be so lucky as to call them my own :)
