Shop Dixi Winner & Blog Crush

Hello again! I'm back for the second time today to announce the winner of the Shop Dixi dress giveaway and to share one of my favorite blogs of the moment. First, let's finish off that giveaway. Out of 42 entries the winner goes to number 27, Heather, from Moonshine Junkyard. Congratulations!! I can't wait to see you show it off on your blog, lady. Thanks to all who participated, and even if you didn't get an entry in this time, you should still go check out the Shop Dixi store. It's heavenly!

Now for the favorite blogger talk. I've been wanting to pull together some sort of monthly favorite blogger posts just like a lot of other bloggers do, but I have yet to figure out exactly how I want to do that. I think I'll need more time to come up with something creative and original, so for now I just want to share some photos from one of my favorites.

I actually just rediscovered Evita yesterday and could barely take my eyes away from the screen. She's what I would consider the eastern hemisphere's Tavi to the the blogging world, and at only eleven years old she's blowing my mind with her incredible photography and photoshop skills and her overall sense of style. I'm so mad that I got away from her blog for so long because she's already inspired me in a ton of different ways since finding her blog again yesterday.

The last set of photos that I posted is the most inspiring to me. In those photos she plays both the guy and the girl which is a concept I've had dancing around in my head for a few months now. Luckily my last day of school is tomorrow, and I'll soon be available to work on such projects!
