Sorel Giveaway

 Recently, my friend -and one of the most talented people I know- Laura Novak, took a few photos of me for a Glitter Guide feature. While we were getting ready for the shoot, she snapped a few of the shoes we would be using. While this shot never made it into the feature, it remains one of my favorites from the day. 
In the middle, you'll find my Conquest Carlys by Sorel. When it gets this cold and snowy out, Sorel is the only option. While I own multiple pairs of these boots (I know you have seen my "joan of arctics" make many snowy appearances via instagram), this season the carlys and I have been inseparable.

I met the team at Sorel a few years ago when I was working on a project for Lucky Magazine, and they are fully aware of how stylish our readers, friends and clients are. SO, in honor of the cold, we'd like you to have your very own pair of the Conquest Carly boots. Normally $220. For you? Free.

I am really excited about this giveaway because you'll never understand how much I love mine. 






Entering is a quick two step process:

1) Follow @sorelfootwear and @dallasshaw on twitter.

2) Let us know why you want them! Send us a tweet or leave a note below.
(contest ends one week from today. good luck!)

Lynzy said...

I have been wanting to be an owner of a pair of sorel's for quite awhile. Living in New England it can be bitter cold in the winter, not to mention the crazy amounts of snow. I would love to cuddle up with a pair or Sorel's! :)

I've just learned about Sorel shoes & I am in love with their designs! I had recently ordered my first pair but a week later got an email saying they were out of stock, I was so heartbroken. Fingers crossed for these!

Rachel said...

These boot are perfect for braving through NYC puddles and snowy sidewalks while still looking chic!

Mistie Doren said...

(following both!) I have been searching for boots like these. My feet are constantly cold in the winter, these would keep me so cozy.

Jolie Jouel said...

These boots would be perfect for my lifestyle. I live in upstate NY, it was 5 degrees this morning while I was walking my labs, freezing! And they are so cute I could wear them for my commute to work. (following both on twitter)

miss garlic said...

this morning, as i was wearing my heels to work in 14 degree weather, all i could think was, "i need some really warm boots." perfect giveaway! i follow both on twitter.

Casey said...

I'm so so jealous of my little sister's sorels she got for Christmas, I would love to have a pair of my very own to love!

R.I. said...

I found out about Sorel very few time ago, because I haven´t seen their boots anywhere in Estonia shops.

Since then many pairs of Sorel , icluding these Carly boots, are on my wishlist now. :)


Also in Estonia, there are freezing winter now:D:D

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

omgosh these are on my wishlist too! i follow you both @laviejaime

Laura Katherine Clark said...

I would love these boots because I am in graduate school at Cornell (upstate NY) and I will be in snowy freezing weather for a long time! I would love some reliable, fashionable, WARM boots!

Elyse | Peonies and Brass said...

These are literally the exact pair of Sorel's I've been lusting after for months now. Seeing them on you just convinces me that they're the ones for me! I live in Montreal (not sure if us Canadians can enter) and as we speak it's -37C out(that's -35F). No, I'm not kidding.

Add to that the fact there are snow banks higher than my 5'2" self, and I would wager that only those living in Iceland could possibly need or want these more than me!

I've followed you both on twitter. Crossing every frozen finger and toe that you pick this Canadian gal!

Unknown said...

I would love a pair to wear when I go visit my parents in ALASKA! Sorels are a must for cold weather.

Erin Goodchild said...

Chicago has been FRIGID, grey, and all around miserable. These boots would definitely make life better!

Nicole Irby said...

Needless to say, the Midwest is brutal when it comes to inclement weather changes and this winter season has been no exception.

I would like to own a pair of these Sorel boots so that my feet can actually look forward to that first step in the snow rather than hide in defeat as they have so many winters' past.

creativestreets said...

I want them because they would keep my feet warm but in style. My email is charlinewilliams60@gmail.com

Hannah Kern said...

I would love to win a new pair of Sorels! My dad bought me my first pair my freshman year of college, for the snowy NE Ohio winters and since getting that first pair I have been hooked. I have recently moved to Cleveland for a new job, and those boots would be pefect for the sudden snow storms! They would be plenty warm enough to tromp though the snow, but fashionable and functional enough to wear into the office! Thanks! @hannahnotmt

Aramide said...

I want these awesome Sorel boots so I can keep warm in this -20 below weather in Chicago! Keep my feet nice and toasty! (I follow both of you on Twitter. Handle @thesassypeach) :D

margo B. said...

I follow you both on Twitter! Would love to get my hands and freezing piggies on these stunningly gorgeous Sorel Boots! Spent my money on my little mini me's Sorels- they were so adorable I couldn't resist!now I am dying to have a pair of my own

cc said...

I love those! I've been wanting a pair of Sorel's for a while but haven't pulled the trigger. Now that it's brutally cold I'm really regretting it.

I follow both you and sorel on Twitter (@CeciliaCurrent)!

Annie said...

I remember Sorels from my childhood.. they were a winter time staple and living in Michigan we had a yearly trip to the shoe store for a new pair. Somehow my feet stopped getting the all-star treatment along the way, and my little tootsies have been shivering cold in rain boots subbing in for sorels.. or not subbing in. Love them!

The Single Nester said...

Winter is my favorite season so why not dress it up with some fantabulous boots!

e. said...

Followint on twitter- @booksconsidered

Why do I want these?! Because I live at Lake Tahoe and it has been freezing lately -- literally, below freezing and I need some stylish yet warm shoes!!

Nicole Depies said...

Reasons I would love these boots:
1. I have been eyeing Sorels the past few times at the store, looking for the perfect pair to be cute yet functional, but I've been shy to pull the trigger on the purchase due to budget purposes
2. It's been -30 here in Wisconsin the past few days.....ewe.
3. I need new boots to go outside and play with my little daughter in the snow (when it's not -30)

Shannon said...

Ahhh... my dream boots! I would love to have these because I live in a rural country home and I don't have any cold weather boots. I would live in these all Winter. Thank you so much for the giveaway and for the chance. Fingers crossed.

(I'm following you both on twitter @shannonhearts1)

BelleBelle said...

This might be my most favorite Sorel boot ever. I've been seriously lacking in the outerwear department since I moved to Oklahoma. I'd love to look stylishly warm in these puppies!

Today it was -24 degrees celsius in Ontario. Not having a car means I walk everywhere. These Sorel boots would keep my feet dry and warm.

Karoline said...

Love those boots! In Oregon, there's a major need for dry & warm boots.

bewitchedsammy said...

I've been thisclose to buying these but still haven't quite been able to splurge. I live in Montana, where it's winter basically 9 months out of the year, and these would be the perfect boots for almost the entire year!

Sarah P said...

I've worn out my LL Bean duck boots walking to and from work, and walking my rescue mutt every day. Definitely need a cute replacement pair of boots that will keep me warm and dry!

thetravelingpear.com said...

The Traveling Pear followed you and Sorel on Twitter!
As a transplanted Mainer-- I'm a Texas gal--I'm no way prepared for the subzero temps that have been hanging around this week. Could barely open my car door yesterday! My cute Steve Madden boots slip on the ice and my Uggs become bogged down icebergs in the snow! Would desperately love a pair of real winter boots.

Kelynnma said...

I've wanted a pair of Sorrels for sooo long! I live in the Midwest and hate the cold. These I'd be warm.. and stylish in!

Following you both on Twitter. These boots are awesome and would be great for the winters here in Ohio and my upcoming trip to Tahoe. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kat Skull said...

I wanted that pair when I was out in Colorado, but I didn't have the money at the time. They are so cute!

Jenny Plumb said...

I have been wanting to get some for quite a while to use at our cabin. These are absolutely gorgeous! I follow both on twitter.

Celia said...

Because they're crazy ridiculously cute and my very cold feet need them. I can't believe I've lived on the East Coast all my life and never owned a pair of Sorel's! Following both on Twitter.

Erika O. said...

I'd love these! They are practical and stylish, love this giveaway!

Did the Twitter thing, I hope I win!

Elizabeth Bricknell said...

I've been looking for a quality-made, cute pair of boots for quite some time - I think these are it!

Meg S said...

Love these - my old boots got killed by too many Chicago winters. These are so much cuter!

And I followed on twitter (@chknpotpie) - thanks!

Madame Chunksalot said...

I wear a lot of thick tights in the winter with miniskirts, and I think these would look absolutely fabulous paired with this combo! Also, with the random freakish amounts of snow Cincinnati gets from time to time, these would be a life saver this winter!! (Followed both on twitter)

Elizabeth Wheeler said...

When my husband and I were dating he lived in Telluride, CO - where boots are an absolute necessity! Before a visit to see him and in a huge rush I purchased the most awful, ugly and enormous snow boots! It's been years and every time it snows and I'm forced to wear them I promise myself I'll buy new ones. It hasn't happened yet, and I'm worried it never will! Save me from my heinous boots!
