They’ve got literally hundreds of fantastic dresses and more, a wide array of brands, and a good selection of sizes.

Josh, a site representative, sent me the gorgeous Blue Plate dress you see above. Since it’s getting cold here already, I’m going to have to wait until the spring to get the most use out of it (I love the designs, but it’s going to be hard to dress this one for snow!). has TONS of Blue Plate boho-chic clothing! It’s only one of the many possibilities for you to spend your $50.

  1. I am commenting on this post! Which means I’m in the giveaway, yes?

    Love the blue with your skin tone. I think the dress would look better with a top underneath that was of a complimentary color–fuschia or orange, for preference.

  2. WOO! Consider me entered! I allllways want to try stuff from them, but I am a weenie when it comes to on line ordering when I have to pay full price!!!

  3. While I don’t mind signing up for mailing lists or following others on Twitter (which I did since I love cute, free clothes as much as anyone), I do insist on keeping my Twitter and Facebook accounts, and personal blog, free from corporate advertising, however fat-aligned they may be. Does anyone else feel this way?

    1. Sara–I do indeed agree with you, and this is why I refused to make “friending” a requirement for entry, even though the company insisted.

      Thanks for entering! danielle

  4. I love the dress! I wonder what it would look like with a vest over it?

    – I commented here (!),
    – followed alight (and I’m already following you!) (
    – added alight as a fan on facebook
    – and signed up for the email list!

  5. I followed the link here from Fatshionista! It’s great that they listened to you this time, though the whole thing was kinda weird. … Anyway, thanks for holding the contest!


  6. Is it bad that my favorite parts of the outfit are the shoes and tights? The dress is cute and all but it seems a bit odd since it is fall…:)

  7. I found this on fatshionista, and I’ve been eying some alight stuff for a while so I figured I’d enter!

  8. Looks very nice to me. As I suggested elsewhere, I think I’d put on a denim jacket and call it a fall outfit. TY for the giveaway!

  9. Hey, I saw this on fatshionista as well. That dress is gorgeous, and good for you holding out for a giveaway you felt good hosting!

  10. Hiya! Found you on fatshionista.
    Great job getting them to do it your way! Much more tempting to join this way, and they do indeed have lots of cute clothings!

  11. Also found you at fatshionista! I already belong to their mailing list, but I haven’t had the money to use any of the coupons they keep sending me, so this is great! 🙂

  12. Thanks for the giveaway. I came here from fatshionista. I’ve never owned anything from alight, but I’d sure love to start!

  13. That dress is cute on you, I feel that yellow or orange would really make it pop (tights and cami). Also, giveaway, yay! I love several Blue Plate dresses on alight!
