Pronk-Wake Up Happy Skirt — Giveaway-A-Day 11/20

November 20, 2006


Find the winner for Friday’s Giveaway at the bottom of this post.
____________

Goodness gracious, comment already. You’ll cry if you miss your chance to win this amazing and too beautiful for words WAKE UP HAPPY SKIRT by the indie fashion label PRONK.




This skirt is so pretty. So flattering. And the winner gets to pick size and color. Will you go reds? Will you go blues? How will you ever decide? Did you wake up happy? Pronk assures us, if you have this skirt to set out the night before, you will.

Inspired by Marken women from a small island in The Netherlands, the team at Pronk believes that clothing, though a daily necessity, can enrich our lives. Pronk is a Dutch word describing the display of one’s best and display their best, Pronk does. Their pieces are made of Liberty of London cotton with imported laces and glass button — extremely fine detailing.

Maybe the most charming thing about Pronk is that with each order, they include thread and simple instructions for hand-stitching so you can “experience the secret magic of even the smallest embellishment.” How very cool is that.

The Pronk site is beautiful. Don’t miss Design Mom’s faves:


the Lush Trousers


the Bloom Shirtdress


the Beautiful Blouse

Just the kind of pieces you love to have in the closet. The kind that make you feel smart and pretty and interesting. And isn’t it just so awesome to have a piece of clothing that no one else in town has? That you didn’t buy at a chain store? I want one of each.

Thank you, Pronk!

65 compulsive writer November 20, 2006 at 2:27 pm

It was so funny. I was at a dinner party for a friend when I first heard about Pronk from someone who was related to the creator. Since then I’ve heard someone in blogworld is also related, but I’m baffled by the connection.

I love their stuff. I can’t afford it, but it makes me happy just to look at it.

I was given a scarf from Liberty’s of London years ago and have always loved the fabric. The skirt is amazing and looks like it would look good on any body type.
