GIVEAWAY: $50 Gift Certificate to Midnight Velvet and My New Floral Satin Pumps

I’m sure most of you in the U.S. and perhaps in Canada and other parts of the world, may have heard that we’re having a heck of a winter. In fact, we’re expecting another storm tomorrow. It’s March for heaven’s sake. Give it up, ole’ man winter! Move along!

Midnight Velvet to the rescue! Yesterday, after braving the bitter cold of Indianapolis where I spent the week on a business trip, I returned home to find their zebra print shipping box on my front steps.

I was excited to open it up because I was eager to receive this delivery and to see it in person. I didn’t realize that Midnight Velvet had shoes as part of their private label.

And here they are, a breath of spring! I have never owned floral printed pumps, or peep toes, or shoes with bling-y jewels before, and I just love them.

When Jeff came in last night and saw my new shoes artfully arranged on the dining room floor, he said, “Wow, those are Allison shoes!”. Yes, they are 😉

I had to try them on right away and see how they look! Although they’d be great for a spring or summer wedding, Bar Mitzvah, christening, or other nice event, I think I’ll be wearing them most of the time with jeans. Don’t you love the small platform as well as the bows and bling?

So even though it may be 3 weeks till spring officially starts and longer still till all the snow melts in my yard, I declare it’s spring whenever I wear my new floral satin pumps from Midnight Velvet!

Midnight Velvet was the sponsor of the first giveaway on my blog back in October.

Midnight Velvet sells clothing, shoes, accessories, fashion jewelry, even bedspreads and accents for your home that make a statement. Midnight Velvet’s sense of style is bold, confident, and often embellished — right up my alley! Never fear, if you like things to be a little more subtle, they have understated and romantic styles too.

I am so pleased that they’re sponsoring another giveaway of a $50 gift certificate

    • Thanks so much, Melanie. I love them! I noticed that floral everything is the thing for spring, so I’ll be right in style. Thanks for entering the giveaway, and good luck 🙂

  1. Those definitely are some Spring inspiring shoes! I have to agree… they are super cute with a pair of jeans. The bling and floral pattern go surprisingly well together. Seems to make them casual yet dressy at the same time.

    • Agree, Jaclyn! These are super-cute. So happy to add them to my collection. Thanks for entering and following on Bloglovin’! Good luck 🙂

    • Awright, LaTanya! Sounds good to me! Thank you for commenting, tweeting about the Giveaway and entering, and good luck 🙂

  2. Those are some gorgeous shoes. I can never pull off peep toe, but you sure can! I adore the Cleo Sandal by Dolce from Mojo Moxy from Midnight Velvet. They look like they would be a bit more height while still being comfortable, which is just what I need! Thanks for hosting this lovely giveaway 🙂

    • I’m so happy you found the giveaway, I.H.! It sounds like you really know Midnight Velvet 🙂 I’m going to checkout the Cleo Sandal you mentioned. I also have the Melissa Sandal by Andiamo that I will review when the weather finally warms up. So happy to hear from you, and good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  3. It has been so cold and snowy here in New Hampshire and since I have been stuck in the house for months now and who knows for how much longer so this gift certificate would be a nice treat

    • I hear ya, Nancy. It’s snowing here in Massachusetts right now, and so far, that’s another inch or so on top of what we’ve already got! The floral printed pumps have given me a lift even though I haven’t really worn them outside of the house, lol. Thank you so much for commenting and entering the giveaway! Hope you’ll visit and comment again, and good luck 🙂

    • I agree, Elle! Mom needs a treat the most <3 Thanks so much for your comment here and on FB, and thanks for entering the giveaway! Good luck 🙂

    • That’s great that you’ve checked out the MV shoe selection already, Jennifer! I have a pair of red Melissa Sandals by Andiamo that I got from Midnight Velvet that I’ll review once the weather finally warms up. (It’s snowing right now!) Thanks so much for commenting and for entering the giveaway! Good luck 🙂

    • Cynthia, there are some gorgeous laser cut handbags on Midnight Velvet. I’ve got my eye on one of them, for sure. Thank you for commenting and entering the giveaway! Happy Birthday in advance! And good luck 🙂

    • yes, it does! the heel is quite attractive and makes the sandals look less wedge-like. I think I’ll wait till next month for the review. Hopefully, the snow will be melted by then 😀

    • Amy, I didn’t even know that Midnight Velvet had perfume! Gosh, I’m going to look through that catalogue again 😉 Thanks for your comment and for entering! And good luck 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness, those shoes are soooooo cute!! I’d wear them outside in the snow too. lol The reason I would like to win the Gift Certificate would be to buy a new Spring/Summer outfit. I live in Florida so my clothes for those seasons wear out quickly. (Please don’t hate me because I don’t deal with snow. I did in Northern WI until I was 22 years old.) Thank-you! 🙂

    • Oh, I don’t hate you for not living in a snowy place, Natalie! Frankly, I don’t know why I still do. These really are cute shoes. I love ’em and can hardly wait to really be able to wear them outside the house. I thought the snow would make a nice or silly contrast to the spring-y flowered shoes 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment. Hope you’ll visit the blog again. And good luck in the giveaway!

    • It sounds great! In fact, I think I’ll go through the catalogue and see what I missed. Thanks, Jessica, for commenting and entering! and good luck 🙂

  6. I love the floral pumps, and I want a pair too. It would be so much fun wearing them with jeans. They look great on your feet. The picture with you standing in the snow with the shoes on is priceless.

    • Thank you so much, Liz! And thanks for taking the time to comment on the blog and enter the giveaway. I really appreciate it!

  7. I absolutely love those shoes! I usually don’t buy patterns like that because I am afraid I would never wear them. But seeing the pictures of them above, I would love a pair!

    • Aren’t they the cutest? I never had patterned shoes before either (except for a polka dot pair of kitten heels I bought in Italy years ago that I loved), but I am so happy I have these. They make me smile. Thanks for commenting and entering, Carly. And good luck 🙂

  8. I’d like some stuff from midnight velvet bc I was prego last year and now I have nothing that fits for this spring and summer. Even my shoes were huge lol. I really like the puff flower gladiator sandals among other things! And my bday is coming up so a little treat would be nice! Thanks so much!
