[NOW CLOSED] Sunglasses Giveaway with DITTO!

Today, I have a super exciting post. First, I am going to tell you about this rad new company- DITTO- and then, you have a chance to win a $250 gift certificate! YEP! Read on, friends:

SO, since moving to SF- shopping has been sort of a bust since I rely on public transportation to get around. Hauling everything home on a MUNI bus is the opposite of glamorous... it's horrifying. When I need a quick fashion-fix, I turn to my BFF the Internet. However, I think we can all agree that online shopping has one major downfall: you can't try stuff on! Clicking that coveted "order" button can be a bit nerve-wracking. Fortunately, DITTO exists to change all of that. 

Using 3D video technology, you can actually try on sunglasses [or regular eyeglasses] from the comfort of your computer! Confused?? Watch this video. By recording your face through your webcam, you're able to see yourself in different sunglasses and choose a favorite. You can also send it to your friends to get a second opinion. Umm... technology is amazing, no?? I had a blast trying on nearly every pair of glasses they had- especially since they have big names like ChloĆ©, Illesteva, Elizabeth and James, and Ray-Ban. I am loving this pair [LOU LOU] by Phillip Lim:

I've already planned a whole new outfit to go with them: 
NOW, since DITTO is the best, they're giving ONE lucky Leopard and Lavender reader a $250 gift certificate to pick out their own pair! Here's how to enter:

2. Next, create your own DITTO, and find your favorite pair of glasses by virtually trying them on!

  10. Hello,
    I am very interested in entering your giveaway for the gift certificate for sunglasses. This is why I NEED these sunglasses:
    OMG THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU so so so so so soooooo VERY much (I cannot thank you enough!) for this!!!!!!!(: I soooooo GREATLY appreciate it(:!!! I do not own ANY sunglasses at the moment that's right spring/summer is coming and I do not have ANYTHING to protect my poor eyeballs from the harmful UV rays of the sun :( With school and everything, I really cannot afford a good pair right now, unfortunately, and I am trying not to buy a cheap pair because usually they do not look very good and are really bad quality and break/scratch/get really dirty/etc. easily and all the money you put buying those cheap pairs add up to the amount you could have bought an expensive pair witch I have been needing(really badly, especially when driving and the sun is shining, trust me the visor thing in the car does not work, and for A LOT of other reasons too) a good pair of sunglasses that will last me a long while(trust me, I take amazing care of my stuff my ipod still looks new and I got it 5 years ago) and that are really fashionable and my style and cute and with this I can choose my PERFECT pair of sunglasses that are all of the above and MORE they are my dream pair of sunglasses, they are PERFECTION:)!!! My e-mail is mslamani(at)hotmail(dot)com THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH FOR THIS:)!!!!!!!! And thank you so much for introducing me to DITTO I LOVE it<3!!! THANKS AGAIN:)!!!!
