Jewelry Giveaway

Hey fashionistas! Own a Pinterest? Get ready for a Pinterest-inspired jewelry giveaway!

I'm a HUGE Pinterest fan nowadays and you can see some beautiful fashion-inspired boards I've been making such as Collar LoveBraided Hairstyles, and "How to Wear an Ascot."

I'm doing these boards not just to support Frock Stock, but also as a micro picture blog experiment. (So instead of doing a post about ascots, I'm giving tips through a photo collage.)

If you're already a fan of the blog or the site, I wanted to encourage you to follow my Pinterest as well so you can share in the tips. That's why I'm deciding to give away a jewelry item of your choice next Monday, November 5th* if you follow these simple steps:

1) Follow the Frock Stock Pinterest page (if you're already a follower, skip to step 2)
2) Pin five of your favorite Frock Stock pieces and five of your favorite non-Frock Stock images from one of Frock Stock's pinspiration boards to your Pinterest
3) Check back in here with your Pinterest name to let me know you've entered and tell us all what your favorite Frock Stock board is!

...After that, one of Frock Stock's new lovely jewelry pieces could be yours! (Picked at random.)

*My goal is to take the page from its 919 followers to at least 1,000 by the end of Sunday, November 4th. If the goal hasn't been met, then the giveaway will be extended until the number is reached. Please encourage your friends to participate!

Lots of love,
Loren (Owner of Frock Stock)

How to Wear an Ascot

How to Wear an Ascot

Ascot, neck tie, neck scarf... whatever you want to call it, there's a million ways to wear it!

If you've never seen what I'm calling an "ascot" - it's an essential piece of retro clothing that you must familiarize yourself with!

Frock Stock has four new adorable ascots in stock. We plan to keep up the ascot trend, even after these sell out, so look forward to new prints and your favorites getting restocked if you miss out!

Delightful Dots Ascot in Yellow $9.99

Cupcake Ascot $9.99

Dijon Ascot $9.99
Delightful Dots Ascot in Navy $9.99

So how do you wear the thing? There are SO many ways - you can get as creative as you like. Here are my top three, illustrated with pictures taken from Pinterest.

#1 Under a collared shirt

This is my absolute favorite way to wear an ascot. Simply tie it under any style collar either as just a loose knot, a loose bow, or a very prim bow. It'll brighten up any plain blouse you have.

#2 Around the neck, vintage style!

This is the most retro way to wear it. You may have seen tons of photos from the 50s of girls wearing this style. Wrap the ascot around your neck twice and tie in a knot.

#3 As a hair ribbon

Charm up your hair this fall with an adorable ribbon tied around your ponytail. Just pony your hair as you normally would then tie the ascot in a bow around it!

So tell me, ladies. Do you love or hate the ascot?

How would YOU wear your ascot? Please share with our Frock Stalkers your ideas so they can have more versatility with their new ascots!
