Item of the Week: JNBY ‘Clown’ Shirt Vest + GIVEAWAY

It’s not every day that I get the opportunity to give away my Item of the Week. Yes, it’s true! I teamed up with JNBY (Just Naturally Be Yourself) to give away one of my favourite pieces from their Summer 2011 collection. As you know, I’m a huge fan of JNBY and featured the brand for The Block magazine last year. I’m pretty thrilled to get to work with them again.
Immediately upon seeing this shirt vest (shirt is built-in), I was intrigued with its feminine/masculine split personality (you know how I love those!): very clean-cut and tomboyish at the front with a super feminine hemline and ruching at the back. Its silk/cotton blend lets us play boy/girl through all four seasons. 
$255 CAD at JNBY Canada. It comes in blue/grey (pictured) or black (which I got!) and it’s available in S, M or L. Your pick! 
1) Leave a comment describing one item from your closet that you would pair the vest with; and
2) Follow @JNBYCanada on Twitter or “Like” JNBY on Facebook.
Easy! Giveway is open internationally, so if you don’t have a JNBY store in your part of the world — you’re in luck! Contest closes Sunday, July 10th at Midnight PST.  
PS. Thanks everyone for entering and congratulations to Nicole for winning!

  • Only one item is tough! I think I would probably go with black skinnies and let the top speak for itself. But I would definitely have to pair the outfit with an awesome pair of chunky booties I scored a few weeks back from Front & Co. 🙂
