Never in a million years did I think I’d ever become a “product model” in a shop.  So when Kintage asked me to be one for this dress I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.  If you aren’t familiar with this shop, well you should be.  Their items are classic and trendy, affordable, and super duper cute.  And one of you luckies will get the chance to win some credit to the shop!  But first, let’s get to know the shop owner just a little bit better.

{MEET AILEEN}

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you started up shop.
My name is Aileen and I live in a little town in CA with my husband. Kintage officially started to form at the beginning of this year, but I have had dreams of owning my own online store full of pretty clothes, accessories and jewelry for years. This past March I finally got to open up shop and I have been so lucky with the support everyone has been showing so far. I hope that Kintage continues to grow and my dream is to one day open a little boutique in my town as well as continue with the online store.

2) Describe your shop in 3 words.
Pretty. Feminine. Affordable.

3) What are your favorite trends for this Fall?
I’m really loving fall florals. I always love florals, but there’s something about fall colors and florals that make me swoon.

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Cookies & Cream!

{GIVEAWAY}

This giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY and closes on September 13, 2012 at 12:01AM EST.  Good luck!
