Lustable & Gin in a Teacup Giveaway!

I was very excited to be part of the Lustable 12 Days of Christmas giveaway. Basically, I got to pick a prize that I knew my readers would love, and give you all a chance to win it!

From the start, I knew that I wanted something from an Australian designer. I couldn't go past this gorgeous Drown x Subfusco necklace from Alegorie, made by the mind-blowingly talented Alicia from Sea of Ghosts.

The Fermi necklace retails for $229, and to make things even better, it's a one-off! It was produced as a collaboration with Subfusco for part of their SS11 Runway collection, Luminous. It's a wonderful, unique piece that would make the perfect statement necklace. I have some of the Drown earrings and the space prints are even more beautiful in real life!

To enter, all you have to do is follow @lustable on Twitter, and tweet your answer this question using the #Lust4Xmas hashtag:

What's the best Christmas present you've ever received?

For some reason, when I was about 13 I was ecstatic to get a Billabong cowboy hat - it was purple with a big pink star on the front (?!). I wore it pretty relentlessly for a couple more years and it's always stood out as one of my favourite presents because at the time it was just SO AWESOME (would not be so stoked to get it now, though). (So, on Twitter, my answer would go @lustable @gininateacup A purple Billabong cowboy hat (with a pink star on the front!) when I was 13. Not entirely sure why. #Lust4Xmas)
