these ladies make me proud (and psst!!! a giveaway winner!!)

Much Love, illy the shop all started out as a creative outlet back in November 2009 - and today it continues to be an extension of creativity and expression. last month, i asked for some readers to send in their photos of them rockin' their Much Love, illy products. i thought it'd be fun to see how they styled their illy-goodies and highlight some loyal readers and incredible friends. every single one i received made me giddy-excited. all of these friends look gorgeous and are too cute for words. and also i think that there is something special about seeing your creation being loved by someone else, ya know? it means a lot to me.
