1 Item 2 Ways ~ & a Giveaway!!

We all wish our closets were fuller than they are.  But when we get creative and learn to wear the things we DO have, it's like we have a Mary Poppins closet -- it just keeps giving!
As you have probably already noticed, I like to come up with challenges that help me work with the items that I already have in my closet.  Take this cowl, for instance...   You have already seen it here and I just can't seem to get enough of it lately.  I thought I would show you a couple ways it can be worn and how I chose to pair it.

First we have classy-Devil-Wears-Prada-ish chic work outfit.  Like, I run my own fashion magazine kinda outfit.  I look like that, don't I?  Ya, Thanks. :)  Please excuse the cell phone pics, I just got home from over 24 hours of traveling and straight from the airport to the salon for my new haircut. Hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. 
Then I went with a more casual feeling.  Throwing some torn jeans and boots with a cute sweater I'm ready for a shopping trip downtown.  I love the casual feel of this one and I LOVE how this cowl works both ways.  Oh and did I mention that it's a hooded cowl?  Just throw that baby over your head and you gotta... hooded cowl. You get the idea.  {we're keeping in mind lack of sleep when reading this, right? Thank you.}
All warm and fuzzy waiting for my first Starbucks since leaving for France.  Cowl and a Starbucks?  That sounds like the perfect fall combination to me!
Want one yet?  I thought so!  And Alysha of The Sunshine Stitch wants one of you lucky readers to have $25 to her shop!!  Can't wait to see who wins?  Well, she is also offering my readers 20% off anything in the shop using coupon code MANOUVELLEMODE.  All you have to do is:
