Josh, a site representative, sent me the gorgeous Blue Plate dress you see above.

It’s only one of the many possibilities for you to spend your $50.

Win apparel from Jen’s Fashion Plus!

Over the last several months, I’ve started to learn the joys (and credit-card horrors!) of eBay. Hands-down one of my favorite places to go and peruse is Jen’s Fashion Plus.

I’ve acquired several pieces from the store, including several dresses (a fab black-and-white buffalo check halter dress, a gauzy summer dress, and a short button-breasted pocket dress), lots and lots of the ultra-comfy cardigans in many colors and lengths, and even a great satiny belted top.

The clothing is high quality and very, very affordable, and the shop specializes in sizes 1x through 5x.

Have you shopped there yet? Well, if not, today’s your lucky day!

The adorable and ultra-sweet Jen, owner of the eBay boutique, is sponsoring today’s giveaway! One lucky Elle in Wonderland reader will win one clothing item of her choosing from Jen’s Fashion Plus.

Now, you may be wondering right about now how you can enter. Well, let me tell you:

How to enter

  1. Go to Jen’s Fashion Plus, and check out what she’s got to offer.
  2. Come back to this post, and leave a comment telling me: what item(s) you liked, where you would wear it, and how you would accessorize.
  3. Don’t forget to leave a valid email address in the comment form!

So you want extra entries? That’s great! Here’s how you can have up to three extra entries:

Giveaway mumbo-jumbo

Some other important things to keep in mind:

  • Entries for this giveaway will end on Friday, September 11, at midnight, EST. Enter before then! One winner will then be chosen by random, and will be announced the following Monday. I will personally email the winner, and s/he has 48 hours to respond before I move on to the runner-up.
  • Anyone may enter. Jen has so graciously extended this giveaway to international commenters!
  • Because of the nature of eBay, the item that you originally chose may not be available in your desired size or color. In this case, we will work with Jen to give you an item of clothing you love just as much.

One more thing!

Although I wish we could give you all clothing, we cannot. Jen has graciously decided to offer Elle in Wonderland readers free shipping on all orders through her eBay store through the end of the giveaway, 11 September. Her clothing is already very modestly priced, so get to it! To redeem, all you need to do is email Jen through eBay and mention this giveaway.

Good luck to you all!
