Hips and Curves….and Court too…GIVEAWAY!!!

14 January 2011

What I’m Wearin’…


Well,guys, I had court today…..DON’T ASK!  LOL  It was sooooo boring….nothing like TV  :o(   hehehehe  The judge didn’t even have a gavel!  So anyway, this is what I wore to court.  I’m told that Black or Navy is best in court so this ensemble is mostly black.  I decided to put a splash of red to fight the drab.  What do you think?  This dress has an empire cut that is best for those of us with tummy issues.  The waist sits just below the bust and doesn’t rest on the stomach resulting in a curvier silhouette.

   What I’m Lovin’… 

Alright readers!  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  What better way to celebrate it with beautiful lingerie?  The generous folks at Hip and Curves Plus size Lingerie have sponsored my first giveaway!  That’s right!  One lucky reader will walk away with a $50 gift card to use towards anything on their site just in time for Valentine’s Day! 


If you have ever been to their site you will know that their pieces are very sexy yet very classy!  I especially love the corsets and Edwardian pieces!  They’ve also got really great prices, so $50 will definitely make you, or the special person in your life very happy!  **wink wink**


I’ll announce the winner on Friday February 4th, 2011 which is a little over a week before Valentine’s day.  That will give you plenty of time to order your prize and receive it on that special day!

Here are the rules…and as a bonus and because I love you guys soooo much, I’m going to give you two chances to win!

1.  First, you must “like” The Dumpy Duchess on Facebook by following this link.  Then, refer five of your friends and make sure they “like” it as well!

2.  For a second entry (only to be completed AFTER step #1) you may come back to The Dumpy Duchess on Facebook and leave a comment telling me what your definition of “sexy” is!  (“My definition of sexy is…”)

The winner will have completed these steps and be chosen at random on the morning of the giveaway.

Remember, you have until February 4th so there’s plenty of time but get started soon! 


And remember….

…no breaking the rules!  :o)



Good Luck!!!

What I’m Hearin’…

Well, let’s set the mood for my Valentine’s Day Event!  I just love this group even though they are no more.  However, Marsha Ambrosius (the lighter skinned one) is on her way back to us.  Her album drops March 1st and I can’t wait!!!  Ladies and Gentleman, the song in my head and in my heart is none other than Floetry with “Say Yes”!  Enjoy!


Many smoochie boochies to you all and I love you guys!  Don’t forget to “like” me on Facebook and catch me on Twitter and Lookville!!!
