A Fairy Dress by Sarah's Silks...A Review AND a Giveaway!!!

Sarah from Sarah's Silks sent us a beautiful silk fairy dress for O to try.  O LOVES it!  It is beautiful, and O loves to wear it to fly around the yard.  Playsilks are our all time favorite "toys," and we love the silk dress-up clothes, too. 


The fairy dress is made of soft heavy weight silk with georgette rainbow wings attached. It is easy for O to put on and take off, and the wings have handles to make flying a little easier. 



Sarah's Silks is offering a silk dress-up costume to one lucky reader.  The winner will choose between a pink or purple fairy dress, a gold knight costume, or a wizard cape.  




I'm going to make entering the giveaway slightly more challenging than usual.  This time you have to go to the Sarah's Silks website and look around the site.  Come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite Sarah's Silk item is...that's simple enough, right? 

Also, if you go to the Sarah's Silks facebook page and "like" it, come back and let me know in order to have a second chance at the giveaway.  This review is open to everyone (not just US residents!!!).  O will choose a winner on Friday night (October 29).  Please make sure to leave your email address in order to make contacting you simple if you are the winner.  Thanks!

  3. OH, MY GOODNESS! I LOVE these!!! My favorite (besides the regular playsilks themselves) would be the reversible cape. But how hard it was to choose! Thank you for including me in your giveaway!

  4. I love the Pink/Rainbow Fairy dress and the Princess dresses and know my little girl would live them. There were also some really great things for boys like the sword and some fun costumes and capes. I can see why you love playsilks and think I need to try this as a great Christmas present idea.

  137. Hi!

    When my 5 year old daughter saw O dressed up with the rainbow fairy dress, she said: "Wow! It's wonderful! Who's that girl? How did they make this dress?" I also thought that it was a meravellous dress-up!

    Because of my daughter reaction and
    since this time the giveaway is not only for US-residents, I have decided to post a comment on your blog for the first time, although it is a long time that I follow your fantastic blog!

    I visited Sarah's Silks web, as you asked for, and... buff, it is not that easy to decide which is the best item at it! But if I only could choose one, I would ask for either a rainbow silk scape or a rainbow streamer.

    This is my e-mail:
