Today, I'm thinking "summer"while checking out these super cute cotton dresses and breezy short skirts. By the way, all photos are courtesy of Novica. If you want a closer look at anything featured here, just click the link under the picture.
Wouldn't this Jaipur summer dress would look great with any of the colorful pieces featured in their Peruvian Silver 950 Jewelry collection? I really like this bracelet. What do you think?

I love these guys! If you have been visiting this blog for a while, you might remember that I've participated in their Artisan Loan program, where you make an interest free micro-loan to makers worldwide who need some cash to keep creating. They might need new tools, materials, etc. - whatever it takes to finish their pieces. When your loan is repaid, if you choose to spend it at Novica, you get an extra 15% off your purchase. (Click here to see my original micro-loan post.)
They also have a fun Curation section, where you can create collections of your favorite pieces or see what other folks are grouping together - this can be really handy when shopping for gifts in specific themes or colors.
And they often pop by with generous giveaways like the one I'm sharing here today! Want to enter the random drawing for a $50 gift certificate to this fun online store? It is easy-peasy and there is more than one way to enter:
1) simply leave a comment on my blog before 6/30 - that will get your name in the hat. Please leave an email address if there is not one in your profile. This is needed to redeem your prize.
2) for a second entry promote this drawing on your favorite social media site(s): twitter, facebook etc. and then pop back here to let me know
You have until 1 a.m. (EST) on June 30, 2013 to enter this random drawing. I will announce the winner later that day. Good Luck!
