  2. I’m redecorating my livingroom and I have a little nook that I use to read and that lamp would look lovely on my sweet little (empty) table, next to my reading chair. Oh…and well, the outfit….my goodness, that would look great on my new and improved body (lost 28lbs) and feeling great! : ) ~Kathy

  3. The little blouse would bring a little spring into my closet (and I totally could wear it to my new brother in-law’s wedding in March!). The lamp would bring a mod bit of light into our home office (that lamp in there has GOT to go!). Thanks for sharing fabulous things with us!

  4. I am a psychology intern (read we do not get paid well) and a little soft light in my fluroescent office would make my office feel much more comfortoble in one of the most cloudy cities in the country (pittsburgh pa). Light pink pleated blouse what could help with the winter blue better (besides a sunny beach)

  5. This wonderful combination would add a bit of softness and brightness to my foggy and rainy Portland winter. Plus, any clothing item that has hints of springtime can only bring me that much closer to sunshine!

  6. just redecorated our home office and the lamp would be perfect!! and i cannot get enough of the pleats right now!! love them both!

  7. I love these items because they are so fresh and bright. January especially can get very dreary, these items are joyful and light- a perfect addition to my life!

  8. I need more blouses that can be fancy or dressed down, and that lamp is so lovely! Would fit perfectly on the new desk I’m building.

  9. Oh Joy! I recently purchase the sunwashed skirt from EmersonMade- and the blouse IS the perfect pairing. I am in love with the tiny pleats- and with that little lamp I could match my bedroom. Can’t think of a sweeter or better way to brighten up this gray month!
    xo.

  10. Even though I can’t complain much about the winters in L.A., I can certainly complain about the sadness of my closet and workspace! It desparately needs a boost of brightness and fresh air.

  11. These are both so lovely! They would make my winter so wonderful. They both scream spring and I can’t wait for it!

  12. the light pink blouse would contrast well with my blue eyes, and the lamp would light up the nursery for my baby due in this fall =)

  13. What a great giveaway, just in time because I am in need of a desk lamp so badly and cannot find one that I like!
    I would wear my top with a grey skirt while typing out a letter to my mother underneath the light of my new lamp!

  14. What an amazing giveaway! Anything Emersonmade makes is beautiful – how can wearing that top NOT cheer up your mood? My apartment is so dark in these winter months. The Hector lamp would surely brighten my room.

  15. Oh my goodness, just looking at this gorgeous short sleeved blouse makes my heart swell. A winter in Minnesota definitely deserves an adorable top and an equally adorable lamp (that would be beautiful to wake up to every morning).

  16. The soft feminine colors AND pleats would brighten anyone’s winter wardrobe! This outfit would be the perfect way to welcome Spring.

  17. holy canoli! what a giveaway! that lamp will certainly brighten my nighttime reading ritual (i can finally ditch that flashlight under my covers) and that top is the perfect girlie piece for this spring (which brightens my wallet!)

  18. Winter in my office is pretty dull – my wardrobe suffers dramatically and I find myself wearing frumpy outfits to the office much more often than I’d like to admit. I also have a pretty dismal cubicle; you’d never know that I’m obsessed with design if you took a peek in! These items would both brighten up my winter!

  19. I’m sitting in my deary office in Chicago right now. I could really use a bit more light during these dark months. And the blouse would bring a little spring to my dark suits! What a nice giveaway!

  20. This pairing would DEFINITELY brighten up my winter. We’re getting another foot of snow tomorrow! Oy!

  21. …is it just me, or does winter make things seem more hectic and disorganized?
    Having light-hued objects of beauty with crisp, clean pleats all in a row would soothe my cold snap-induced scattered feeling and refocus my thoughts.
    I would love to wear this blouse to the brunch my Mom is hosting on the morning after my November wedding this year! …and the lamp would look lovely on my desk.

  22. can’t imagine how bouncing around in that frilly little blouse in that pleated light wouldn’t make someone’s day oh-so joyful.

  23. i would read in the dark evenings with that little lamp and wow my co-workers by actually wearing a dressy shirt!

  24. I live in Seattle… enough said! These would totally brighten up the dreary weather – and add some pretty color to all of the grays around here!

  25. This is just what I need to brighten up my new loft on these dreary Chicago days! Currently our office has no lamp so this would be perfect and I could look cute while using it!

  26. I became a widow this summer, and am looking for ways to brighten up my life. Simply put, both the luminous lamp and the luxe blouse would do so!

  27. i think this would do more than just brighten up my winter, i think it would MAKE my winter. AMAZINGNESS! love love love!

  28. The lamp would be perfect in my new apartment and I would definitely wear the shirt with my green coat out at night, or to class, or basically anywhere because it is so pretty.

  29. The blouse reminds me of the first hints of spring- when the petals are just peaking from their buds. The lamp lets of just enough light to brighten your day- as the early morning spring sun.

  30. I was going to post a comment (because I love Emersonmade and that blouse is tres cute!), but I think I’d rather say, give it to Deb! It sounds like she needs it more than I.

  31. Both of these pieces are gorgeous! I love the crispness of the colors. The touch of pink, and the soft light, keep the lamp and the blouse warm and inviting. My dark office space sure could use the lamp, and my pale, winter skin would benefit from the soft pink blouse!

  32. I could really use a good lamp to focus on my taskwork as I study to become a teacher! On the small budget of a college student, I’d give the shirt to my fiance for her Valentine’s birthday. The pale peachy pink would look beautiful on her and it’s better than the small gift I could afford.

  33. Well……I know the most perfect person to gift the top to (it would really brighten up her month!) and I have to admit that the light would really brighten mine!

  34. Is it just me or does winter start to get old after the holidays are over? There are no more presents to expect, no more family is coming over and, if you’re like me, your wallet is hurting quite a bit. Winter suddenly becomes dull. The pleated blouse would bring a little light into my wardrobe and that pleated lamp would bring so much light into my room on bleak winter days. I always look forward to packages, especially packages filled with goodies from EmersonMade and Gretel! What a winter surprise that would be!

  35. this is so beautiful!
    that blouse is perfection, perfect to provide incentive to get out of bed and get dressed on a snowy New York morning. the lamp would provide much-needed light to cast away winter gloom.

  36. I love all things EmersonMade! These pieces are the perfect way to brighten up any dreary winter day with their soft and lovely details. Great giveaway!

  37. Oo Oo Oo! As I stare out my window at the day’s falling snow, I am secretly begging spring to make an early appearance. I moved from LA to NY almost two months ago to explore my favorite city before school begins. And although I absolutely made the right move, I will admit that any reminder of warmth is welcome! My design desk is sans lamp… and I promise to wear that Little Blouse often.

  38. I would love to read some good books to the light of that gorgeous lamp. And that blouse would be the perfect springtime top. Two wonderful stores! Thank you for the deal and the giveaway!

  39. Just moved into an apartment with no overhead lighting!! It’s a serious tragedy. With the dark winter still firmly in place a little light in both ways would really help me out. That cute little sweater would brighten up my regular wardrobe of grey and black….

  40. The harsh florescent light in my office is making this cold, cold winter even worse. The light and blouse are just the right, light touches to bring some warmth to these cold months.

  41. I’d use the lamp in my small living room to make a cozy low-light feel above my love seat. Then I’d pair the pleated blouse with some dark jeans and invite the boyfriend over for a stay-at-home date! 🙂

  42. I desperately need both of these for work. The top would be the perfect piece for winter-transition-to-spring for meetings, and the lamp would be perfect for my jewelry studio, in which I need more light! Love both of the sites!!

  43. These are both such lovely pieces! Since days are so much shorter during the winter, the lamp would do well to help light up my workspace while I spend hours doing school work this semester, and the blouse would be a cheerful reminder that spring is just around the corner and this Midwest winter can’t last forever 🙂

  44. I work at home during the dark winters in Vermont. That lamp and sweater would make me the most stylish and bright person at my house.

  45. My winter is not too dull here in SoCal relative to other parts of the country/world, but this sweet combo would really go well with my “winter” wardrobe and apartment that gets dark at 5pm (and brighten things up a bit in all respects)!

  46. Winter pink is the new winter white and I’ve been eye-ing all things EmersonMade for so long, this would brighten the coldest of winters. And that lamp is just perfect for my ultra-girly room.

  47. I just set up a crafting station in my apartment, but the lighting is terribly dim. This lil lamp would certainly brighten things up! And who doesn’t need a cute new top for their wardrobe to make them happy? Retail therapy! 🙂

  48. That blouse is so beautiful and springy! And the lamp would brighten up the dark corner of my apt that makes up my “office”

  49. absolutely anything emersonmade would brighten this dreary winter! and that lamp? so sweet and lovely!

  50. So Pretty! Anything EmersonMade brightens my everyday and that lamp is just so amazing! They are both so girly and clean at the same time! Does that make sense? I love them both!

  51. The blouse would definitely be a pick me up to drab sweaters and the light shade of the lamp will illuminate my workspace to make it feel more like spring!

  52. what a wonderful giveaway! well i think it’s pretty obvious how these would both brighten my winter – especially the blouse – just gorgeous! and the lamp especially because i hate overhead lighting and am always on the lookout for more lamps. they always cast such a warm, inviting glow unlike stark overhead lighting…

  53. The blouse would brighten up my otherwise monotone wardrobe and the lamp would cheer up my cold bedroom with some warm light!

  54. I love Emerson made and this blouse would brighten up my winter work wardrobe. As for the cute lamp… I just bought my first home and this would be perfect in my new home office! xo

  55. These would brighten up my winter in so many ways. First of all, pink and grey is my favorite color combination. Also, I just moved and could use a new lamp to light up my pretty dark room. And finally, I’ve been on a no-spending resolution since the beginning of the year, so winning a giveaway would definitely brighten up my winter!!

  56. I just moved to a new apartment and have no lamps in my bedroom, so this would brighten things up for all the seasons 🙂

  57. Our living room doesn’t have the best lighting and I’ve been looking for interesting lamps to brighten up dark corners. Both items remind me of summer!! 🙂 and summer = joy 🙂
    (wallpaper in your bedroom looks great!)

  58. How would these brighten up my winter?! Well, not only would I be dressed fabulously, but it’d give me the dreamiest living room lighting I could ever want… the pleated shade on that light resembles the pendants I already have hanging in the adjacent dining room, and to carry that crisp clean look to one of my side tables would be incredible! (Thanks for sharing the discount too!)

  59. these are so pretty! they would definitely brighten up my winter with their pastel coloring and delicate style. 🙂

  60. Oh man, I’m coveting that EmersonMade Spring Dress, it’d be perfect for riding my bike around Long Beach with a little cardigan. I can already see that lamp on my sewing table!

  61. I love these! The blouse would definitely brighten my winter as I would pair it with a cozy cardigan and wool skirt. The lamp would be great too since I just moved into a new house and have lots of space for new decor!

  62. I live in Michigan.
    Gray, gloomy, cold Michigan.
    The blouse would remind me that Spring is coming {although she takes her precious time getting here} and the lamp would be the perfect blend of minimal & feminine for my side of the bed {which is currently without lighting}.

  70. My room feels like a cave in the winter. This lamp would look amazing next to my bed and really help brighten up the room. And that blouse. There is really only 1 word for it…swoon

  71. A pleated blouse to wear while sitting in my new chair reading using the pleated lamp (who knew!) and dreaming of springtime!

  72. Those pretty pleats just make me swoon! Pretty pink pleats with something gray – I’m sure this combo will help me feel the warmth of spring in no time!

  73. Today is the first time its been sunny and above zero in about a week. I could use a pick me up. And these are super cute.

  74. ditto on all the Seattle comments…we’re sooooo living up to the rainy stereotype this winter. Need some brightening, please!

  75. This is perfect ~ Out of the entire Spring 2011 collection, I’ve been eyeing this EmersonMade top, and we’ve also been looking for a desk lamp. Both are gorgeous

  76. i’ve been dying for anything emersonmade and who wouldn’t want that lamp? it would be great on my desk. i’m a graphic designer and i am always struggling to find a cute lamp! both pieces are amazing!

  77. Those are adorable! I recently moved to Southern California and have been really missing the snow. Since it’s pretty warm here already, I think these would help me embrace spring coming:)
    The Cheeky Cafe

  78. oooh these would both easily brighten anyone’s winter! both are little reminders of the brighter things in life! the top… is light and airy… reminiscent of springtime! the little lamp looks like the inside of a daffodil … and would brighten any space both on or off. thanks for creating such an amazing give-a-way!

  79. oh my gosh, LOVE this! am thinking of moving to the chilly northeast from florida within the next few weeks, so this combo would TOTALLY brighten my days!

  80. in general that would be the brightest thing going. aside from all that snow reflecting off all that snow.

  81. I do love myself a beautiful blouse…and with those pleats and that color- how cute! The lamp would definitely help to sweeten up my boyfriend’s work desk!

  82. I work in a windowless architecture office with fluorescent lights. Soft and cozy things are desperately needed!

  83. That lamp is lovely. It would brighten up any room during these gray winter monthes. Not to mention that blouse – what a great way to get ready for the spring!

  84. I love EmersonMade and have been looking all winter for a reading lamp for my nightstand. The Gretel lamp is perfect!

  85. Well that is easy! That blouse would brighten up my winter when I wear it with my leggings and brown boots! What a pretty color, definitely will help in the drab winter. That lamp is beautiful and I would put it on my desk at home!! Thanks!!

  86. As a college student living in a tiny apartment, sometimes I get a little weepy-eyed about the fact that my space is lacking some illumination. Whenever I first saw the pictures of the giveaway, I immediately thought of champagne…you know, the way it makes you feel after you take the first couple of sips? It is very subtle and warming and so pretty to look at! With that in mind, how could I not have a happy winter showing off that blouse and the lamp at my desk?!

  87. Since my mom so thoughtfully decorated my room I had no say in anything including the poop colored walls, so winning the lamp would brighten not only my room but my smile! it will also be handy to take to college with me next year- study lamp!

  88. this blouse would totally liven up my cords and tweeds. love it. and the lamp would be just perfect over my sewing machine so i could sew some straight lines on the quilt i’m planning:)
    p.s. best. giveaway. ever.

  89. Oh beautiful! The blouse would definitely help me look forward to the spring (after surviving my first winter in Cleveland!), and that lamp would be the perfect addition to my fashion-inspired craft room. I actually think this is my favorite “this” and “that” so far!

  90. What a perfect blouse to transition from winter into spring with, but really anything from EmersonMade is perfect, no? And, we all know we could use a little extra {pretty} light during these short winter days! Love both of these items so much!

  91. It’s been dark and rainy for what seems like the past 6 months in Seattle…this pair would certainly brighten my day!

  92. Dude! Did you hand pick these for me? I’m currently redoing my “get-ready-room/craft room” and this lamp would fit in perfectly! Also, over this fall, I’ve lost weight and I look forward to wearing short sleeves this spring!

  93. I have been looking for a lamp to brighten up my husband’s office – this would be perfect!
    And anything EmersonMade would make my winter better.

  94. I can just imagine sitting by the light of the lamp, reading something frily like Jane Austen, and wearing that delicious little blouse.

  95. Such a bright pretty colored blouse! How could it not brighten up my winter?! And a lovely lamp would make my desk far less cave like… Thanks for the giveaway!

  96. Pale pink pleats + mod white lamp? Yes, please.
    A little ditty:
    Pleats are amazing
    And so are lamps ablazing
    Fashion + decor
    Modern vintage galore

  106. I’m renewing my lease to my current apartment and I am in dire need to redecorate for the new year! and the dress would be perfect for the rent renewal party i want to throw!

  107. That darling little lamp would be a lovely touch to my reading space. Reading is a necessary escape from the winter drearyness. The little blouse would remind me that spring is just around the corner.

  108. The blouse would hang on a cozy knitted hanger my ex-grandmother in law made in my office for a while so that I could admire it. I would then wear it from time to time and fiddle with the collar since that is what a collar like that deserves. But I would hope I could get it in seersucker, since I am more than mildly obsessed with seersucker.
    The lamp deserves pride of place near my computer in my office. I would make my current lamp move, despite all its moaning.

  109. That blouse would be perfect to brighten up my mostly black winter wardrobe. Especially since I just moved and gave away a bunch of clothes so now my closet is looking sparse. The light would be perfect for a new reading nook I created and would bright up these cold snowy days in Boston.

  110. That lamp would be perfect for my home office, my current one is broken 🙁 It would definitely brighten up my day. The blouse would be a perfect color to bring in spring too!

  111. A little blush blouse is just the thing to bring some soft color and break up all the winter black and gray!

  112. Having just moved to NYC from the westcoast I am starting to get used to the grey but these would definitely usher in some lovely and much needed warmth! Thanks for sharing the codes as well!

  113. I bedroom is a light pit. Great for sleeping, awful for anything . . . like getting dressed in a cute pleated shirt!

  114. When the sun bounces off a swatch of bright white snow in late afternoon, it looks about that color! This pairing would brighten up my winter by bringing out the best (soft textures, pastel reflections) winter has to offer. Thanks for the opportunity, I’m crossing my fingers!

  115. Oooh, I’m just in the process of redecorating my bedroom and that lamp would make a lovely reading light for my nightstand! I also love EmersonMade and would have a blast reworking looks around this versatile piece. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  116. What a great giveaway! I live in South Texas, so the weather here is already gearing up for Spring. The blouse will be perfect for the coming months. The lamp is simply adorable and would be a perfect touch to my closet soon-to-be turned office/craft station!

  117. Oh these are both so pretty! The lamp would obviously brighten dark corners and cheer me up, so pretty to look at. The blouse reminds me of spring.

  118. The mere thought of owning one, moreover, both of these luxurious finds is enough to get me through the winter in great anticipation for the spring! If I won, I would hang the Emerson made top in my entry way and use the Gretel lamp to shine light on it everyday until spring came. (meeting Joy Cho in person has also left me with a warm feeling in my heart!)

  119. I’d put that lamp in my office to literally brighten it up and wear that shirt anywhere & anytime! Great giveaway!

  120. I can’t picture my bed end table without that cute little Pixar style lamp, and can’t imagine my closet not having an option of a little pale pleated blouse! The little things in life brighten my day… what can I say?

  121. I am in LOVE with that top and that lamp just slays me. I would love for the pleated top to replace my heavy sweaters and that lamp would completely brighten my bedroom!

  122. I totally adore emerson made and that lovely pleated lamp. I’ve been needing a new lamp to brighten up my dark windowless living room and would use the blouse to spruce up my dull winter wardrobe.

  123. Perfect lamp for my soon be “reading nook” and that blouse, oh how that blouse needs to be in wardrobe for spring – the pairing possibilities are endless!

  124. I live in the south, which should mean : awesome and hot all the time! But lately it is drab and snowy! I need a pick me up desperately. That beautiful top and lamp would totally do the trick!

  125. I love the textures in both the blouse and the lamp. The clean, feminine style of both is very much my style. I would use the lamp to brighten up my desk at home that I’m turning into my “creative space”, and the blouse would be the perfect top to make me feel cute for just about any occasion!

  126. I work in a whole in the wall (almost literally) I’d love to be able to see a beautiful light to motivate me through those harder days. xx thanks for the give away.

  127. i would LOVE the lamp on my bedside table to warm up my bedroom-i live in vermont and and it gets dark fairly early here in the winter..
    also, a spring-like shirt can’t help but improve my outlook!

  128. This would DEFINITELY brighten up my winter! I made a commitment to spending as little money as possible this year, so winning some new lovelies would sure be a treat!!! I’ve been drooling over EmersonMade’s Spring stuff all month!

  129. I LOVE pleats and would not be able to stop running my fingers over both the lamp and the blouse. Both would be seriously perfect for me in Westwood right now. They have my name all over them!

  130. I can’t decide which is cuter- the lamp or the blouse. Both are totally adorable. The blouse would make a nice change from all my gray sweaters and that lamp would be perfect on my bedside table.

  131. These guys would brighten my winter by helping me to work on two projects I’m slowing toiling away at – 1. building a work wardrobe that feels like me and can be mixed-and-matched into my everyday and going out wardrobe, (that blouse is amazingly perfect!), and 2. re-vamping my bedroom – I moved into a charming but small new apartment in September and my stuff just doesn’t fit right in my new space, so I’m working on slowly replacing and updating. That little cutie of a lamp would be spot on.

  132. This is such a fresh but warm pairing!! I, almost daily, swoon over the lovely designs of Emersonmade and have been SUPER lusting for this beauty of a top. Too, I could definitely use this charming, Pixar-like lamp on my teacher desk to light up my students’ work 🙂 🙂 I love the pleated effect on both designs!

  133. I just gave my desk lamp to my boyfriend so he could have a place of his own to do his grad school homework at home… this lamp would be a perfect replacement for my desk… or my new jewelry making area… I haven’t quite decided. And I’ve been looking for a blouse in that color for a while, this one is perfectly pale pink and just my style 🙂

  134. it’s january…anything will make me happy, but these items will make me ecstatically happy. i love the lamp, so bright and spring-y and the blouse would also spring up my wardrobe…my sad sad wardrobe.

  135. That’s such a cute blouse.. just what i need to “lighten” up my wardrobe. And that lamp would be perfect on my bedside table!

  136. I’ve been searching for a blouse like that (reminds me of a daffodil blooming!) And wow, that lamp is stunning. Would definitely brighten up those cold winter days when all I want to do is curl up under a blanket and read.

  137. pleats! i love pleats! and i love everything emersonmade. i just adore this lamp. it is just what i need for my new office.

  138. the top is adorable – perfect for warming a winter wardrobe.
    and who doesn’t need more light on these dark wintery days? visually stunning? a plus.
    love them both….

  139. I have fallen into the worse rut…as a new mom, I wear the same ugly zip-up hoodie every day! A new blouse would be such an uplifting treat! Not to mention that gorgeous lamp!

  140. Oh goodness! I just spent way too much time daydreaming about warmer weather and soft spring shades while browsing Emerson Made. Also, my bedroom could really use that lamp…

  141. i get serious winter blues – the pink blouse and bright lamp would give me a much needed pick me up!

  142. Beautifullll! The tiny pleats on both remind me of a little flower ready to open for spring! Plus my entire house is white on white with a little gray, so that lamp would fit in nicely.

  143. It’s my birthday today so I think this lovely pairing would definitely brighten up my birthday!

  144. The beautiful EmersonMade blouse would be perfect for already-not-cold Florida weather. The flowy fabric might help me feel a breeze and think of cooler winters. And the beautiful pleated lamp can help brighten up my house (which I always complain does not have enough natural light) on these gloomy, rainy days. Both are great transitions into spring!

  145. Oh man, I hope that top could brighten up my winter with whatever makes the lovely Emerson so adorable. Maybe a little of her zest will travel to me in its threads? And that gorgeous lamp? I live in a 1920s building with low wattage, so adding light is always called for. I stayed in a hotel this weekend and could not believe how much easier it was to read under bright, 21st century light!

  146. :: The little blouse will brighten all of my winter outfits & the hector lamp will brighten my desk! ::

  147. Both lam and Blouse are B-E-A-U-T-F-U-L! Im a college student at art school who could really use the lamp to brighten my life! And as for the Blouse EmersonMade is my favorite designer!

  148. I’m pregnant—due early Spring. And I’ll definitely be ready for a new wardrobe! Oh, and didn’t I mention I broke my lamp recently?

  149. oh my geez… i may have blacked out for a minute.
    Living in the mid-west, winters are no fun. And I am an environmental scientist, and only on weekends am I able to dress how I want… which seeing that my clothes during the week are always caked in mud and damp, I love to bring out the girly side of me. That EmersonMade blouse would fulfill my girly quota for the weekend! And the beautiful lamp would remind me when I leave home in the dark and come home in the dark that the sun will come back soon!

  150. even just seeing both of these things on my computer screen brightened my day. i’ve succumbed to winter ugly sweater dressing and the blouse just reminded me there’s a time i can wear pretty little things like that and it’s almost here! and the lamp would be perfect for my happy little sewing area. both are so happy and fresh looking 🙂

  151. This lamp would be the perfect addition to my nursery in progress and would definitely brighten up the room and my winter!

  152. This would definitely lighten up my winter wardrobe (mainly black) and my bedside table (which currently has no lamp. please note, i’m completely obsessed with all emersonmade clothes, accessories and housewares.

  153. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. This lamp would look amazing on my desk. And I could use a little pink in my closet!

  154. I live in the very north of Michigan on Lake Superior. It is often gray, dreary, and below zero. Not only would the lamp lighten up a room, but the blouse would lighten up the scenery where ever I would go. They are very needed in this part of the world.

  155. The lamp is so sweet and somehow a balance of minimal and feminine. I would love to use it on my bedside table (where it would nicely echo the pleats of my white bedskirt!). And as for the blouse, it’s just so darling! I’m loving embellished necklines for spring.

  156. I’ve been wearing black for about 5 months now…I would love to have a spring blouse add a little something different to wear! And…the lamp would be perfect for our office because my husband and I have been searching for the perfect lamp for our hours of working from home.

  157. ah! how could these two *not* brighten up my winter?!…and, they might just be the incentive I need to finish clearing off my desk and cleaning out my closet (two sadly incomplete new year’s resolutions!)

  158. My gosh those sites are cute! I’ve never visited either of them before… thanks for the discount! I’m going to spend some time browsing more later today 🙂
    The top is adorable! What a lovely color too! I would love add such a feminine piece to my Spring collection.
    As for the Lamp – what a great addition to a small entry table or corner needing some light 🙂 I have several places I’d like to put it!
    Thanks as always!!

  159. I live in Minnesota where it’s freezing and dark during the times that I’m not working. I know this blouse and lamp would certainly brighten my day!

  160. I’ve transformed my negative attitude from 2010 into a super positive one in 2011. I am seeking my dream job and I think Emerson Made has the best interview outfit. Maybe, just maybe, it could get me the job I really really want.

  168. The pairing is just lovely. My little heart is missing color, the perfect peach under the beautiful lighting would look fantastic with my lavender nail polish that is waiting for the Spring to make it’s debut!

  169. i have been DYING for an EmersonMade Dahlia pin, and I’m using your discount. Already thrilled, winning the giveaway would be icing!

  170. A lovely pair. My little heart misses color…the perfect peach under that lighting would look fantastic with my lavender nail polish that is waiting for the Spring to make it’s debut!

  171. Wow! What an amazing pairing! That emersonmade blouse has been catching my eye since it appeared and would certainly help me look forward to spring a bit more! For now, it would look lovely under a super comfy cardigan. The lamp is perfect too! The pleats add a touch of fun!

  172. Luckily, I live in Los Angeles, so my winter doesn’t particularly need brightening…but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t LOVE this beautiful blouse or the lamp. Either may just out-shine these sunny winter days!

  173. this would be too dreamy! i absolutely love emersonmade and the fabulously springy collection she just revealed. my husband and i are also working on redecorating our bedroom, and that lamp looks perfect for my side of the bed.

  174. So cute. I could use a little femininity in my life for sure. The top is sweet without being saccharine. And the lamp is modern enough but soft.

  175. I just moved into a new apartment, so the lamp would brighten up my bedside table, and I just know that the amazing little shirt would help me survive all of the black, blue, and grey in my winter wardrobe while I’m anticipating the arrival of spring!

  176. A lovely pair. My little heart misses color…the perfect peach under that lighting would look fantastic with my lavender nail polish that is waiting for the Spring to make it’s debut!

  177. How could this not brighten a girl’s dreary winter day? I work in tiny non profit in a dark corner cubical, this adorable lamp and matching blouse would not just brighten my day, but my hardworking coworkers’ day!

  178. Wow, THE perfect blouse for spring. Love the pleats! It is cold and snowy here for a few more months at least. Little things like this help me imagine that spring is almost here. And the lamp would definitely be one of the most beautiful things in my dreary apartment.

  179. my basement apartment could relly use this pretty lamp to brighten up my reading corner! And my mostly navy blue(i have an unhealthy obsession)closet could really use some some light shades like that gorgeous top! LOVE!!!

  180. When I am having a gloomy day, I try and throw on a bright colored top or accessory. It usually turns my day right around! A great top like this would do wonders on days like that! Plus that simple lamp would go great at my desk!

  181. I manage to get myself through winter by thinking about Spring. This combination has such beautiful soft colors and something about ruffles always makes me think of dressing up for Easter. If that doesn’t warm me up and put a spring in my step, than I don’t know what would!

  182. My sewing studio doesn’t have a central light-source, so I could use a new lamp to brighten my work! I am working on a new skirt that would go perfectly with that blouse. Voila! It was meant to be!

  183. The dressy yet professional blouse would be awesome for job interviews as I have been out of work for awhile and can’t really afford new interview clothes. Clothes can give you that extra confidence to stand out. The lamp is a great design I could give to my sister for letting me live with her and her family while I job search!

  184. both are perfect winter whites! the lamp would look great in my (mostly white) home office and the ivory color of the top would compliment my fair skin!

  185. Both are so cute and feminine. After this ultra cold winter in DC, I need something to remind me that spring is around the corner. Both of these would do the trick!

  186. I would gift the blouse to my wonderful friend who recently had a baby because every new mom deserves something pretty! And I would use that awesome lamp to add some style to my desk at home.

  187. Moving into a new apartment soon, after my fiance and I are married. It would be pretty great to have that lamp for our new living room and that blouse for my closet.

  188. I consider myself very lucky to be a graduate student on a monthly stipend, but it doesn’t leave much room for indulging on luxury items (like this blouse and lamp). Winning this giveaway would be a wonderful surprise. Your taste is so refined I always love checking your blog between studying!

  189. The blouse would brighten up my dreary commute to work everyday and the lamp would add some much needed light and color to my home office!

  190. the blouse is just perfect! I love the pleats. and the lamp would brighten my living room – it’s so pretty!

  191. Nothing like a crisp, pleated white bone china shade and cozy covered cord to make me think of paperwhites, tea time and spring in the dead of winter. I can imagine myself sipping a fresh cup of rose and mint tisane while wearing that lovely spring-like pleated chambray skirt, illuminated by this clean, simple lamp. It reminds me of the year I spent in Oxford. Choose me!

  192. I’m decorating my new apartment and the lamp would look great on my desk! Also, the blouse is adorable and would add a nice touch to my winter wardrobe.

  201. and how wouldn’t these lovely items brighten up my winter?? the top is so super adorable! i am currently cut off from allowance in order to pay off my credit card so winning that top would be a dazzling ray of sunshine in my shopping-less existence. and the lamp?? so, so cute and perfect to brighten my cubicle which is cut off from any natural light.

  202. I think we have had more snow days than school days so far this year! I would take very kindly to any brightening, especially of the adorable, pleated kind 🙂

  203. First of all, anything from the lovely EmersonMade would brighten my day, but this shirt may be my favorite thing from the new Spring Collection! I just moved into my new apartment a few months ago, and am still in desperate need of pieces like this lamp to really give my little nest some extra oomph! What a fantastic giveaway! Thanks!

  204. i require a lovely top that will illuminate my days ahead, and a lamp so i can do my law school readings 🙁

  205. I have been coveting that blouse from EM. There is a great seersucker version too as I’m sure you know.
    Also, recently, I’ve been forced to give up half my closet to share with my fiance after my sister moved into our second bedroom. She’s in school and we live four blocks away. She has no way to pay us any rent, not that we asked for any. We just shuttled my fiance’s clothes into my closet and I pulled a clunky dresser out from hiding in my closet, painted it up a bit, and turned the top into a vanity station. I would love the lamp to brighten that area up now that I sit there [on a medicine ball…] to do my makeup in the morning.

  206. What beautiful pieces! Both would be great for making a February day at the office a lot more pleasant…

  207. The blouse would bring some much needed light to my usual winter greys and blacks. The lamp would go perfectly on my nightstand to better illuminate my bedtime reading. Xoxo

  208. I just bought my first home (yay!!) and have been looking for ways to decorate, this lamp would be a delicious addition. As for the blouse, anything cream makes the winter more bearable and that top is absolutely lovely!

  209. love Emersonmade and LOVE the color. I have such a hard time finding blouses that I can dress both up and down. As for the lamp– we are moving and need lighting and what a great way to start! : )

  210. This pair would brighten up my day because they both remind me of the ridges in cupcake cups. The little lamp would sweetly light my drawing on a cold rainy night and the blouse would gently boost my confidence on a dreary rainy day such as this one ^_^!

  211. Even though I live in LA, my apartment is sadly empty of light. That lamp would certainly brighten up my bedroom! And I just added pleats to my “to buy” clothes shopping list for spring. Bright and lovely indeed!

  212. I, too, live in Silver Lake, and this top is perfect for our year round beautiful weather. For when the sun goes beyond the ocean, the lamp would fit perfectly on my desk.

  213. I just moved to a new city. This blouse would be adorable on a job interview and this lamp would brighten my new digs!

  214. ooooooh me, me, me please!!!
    i’ve been following emersonmade shortly after it’s inception, i love her stuff!
    & who wouldn’t want a matching lamp?!
    -ll

  215. This lovely lamp would brighten my bedside table for reading at night. The blouse would also brighten my rainy + gray Portland winter.

  216. i die frequently over the amazing-ness of emersonmade. and that lamp? it would look lovely in my home office. (i’m about to start working out of there full time. so it needs to be cute). and winter around here has been SO gloomy.

  217. my *thrifty* husband will let me put that lamp on his desk if i can tell him i got it for free! and i’m in grad school – the top would be perfect to wear to my internship!

  218. I needed a bedroom lamp 3 months ago! Still on my list of things to get in my new, cute place and this one would be divine 🙂 And that top?! Well, it’s pleated… ‘nuf said!

  219. About a year ago, I found Emerson Made on line and fell in love with their style; I made a promise to buy myself something from them as soon as my finances would allow. Next thing I knew I had to replace the operating system on my computer and had lost Emerson Made’s bookmark in my system, and could not- for the life of me- remember their name! I was despondent but knew that if I kept searching, somehow I would find them again. To be able to win the lamp (which I desperately need in my office) and the beautiful blouse, would be a simple daily reminder to keep faith in the goodness of simple, beautiful things, and to never stop looking- because you always find what you need when your heart and mind are open!

  220. These items are wonderful and so light and fresh. We have had such a rough winter and the beauty of this blouse and lamp would surely help!

  221. just imagining sitting at my desk with a pretty new lamp illuminating the dainty pleats of a new blouse is making me happy! love emersonmade and pleased to meet gretel.

  222. The blouse and the lamp are just the things I need to break through the winter and the cold. They’re gorgeous.

  223. I’ve been looking for a new desk lamp, and this Gretel lamp would be perfect! I love the collar detailing on the EmersonMade blouse.

  224. So lovely, both of them! I’d wear the blouse with a pretty pencil skirt to brighten things up for spring, and put the lamp in the corner of our office next to one of our wingback chairs to create a bright little reading nook.

  225. I’ve been a big emersonmade fan for a while and now I’ve become a gretel fan too. Both items are so lovely and feminine. Both would brighten up my days as a stressed out college student!

  226. Wow, I would love to win both!! The EmersonMade shirt would brighten up my black and gray wardrobe, and the lamp would ease my tired eyes in my fluorescent lit office.

  227. Everything is in the details. Beautiful tailoring is always a nice hello when uncovering fashion under all those winter layers. Unexpected materials add a human touch to hard materials making any home a pleasure to come to from the cold air.

  228. nothing makes me happier than pleating and pale pink! would add a dash of sparkle to my winter!

  229. Both the blouse and the lamp would help bring spring into the cold, cold winter I am having. Snow is pretty but after getting so much of it I really can’t wait for spring to come! And the pleats on the lamp and blouse are too cute 🙂

  230. My winter doesn’t really need brightening, as it is 72 and gorgeous in Phoenix. But I would appreciate both of these adorable items. The blouse could be seamlessly incorporated into my work wardrobe, and that lamp is perfect for my desk space!

  231. Love both items! Especially the lamp, which reminds me of a coffee filter and triggers this association: coffee filter–>warm beverages–>not cold anymore.

  239. A darling pink piece to add to my gray and black wardrobe and a darling light to brighten the day!

  240. I have been eyeballing this blouse for the last few weeks! I think its a nice ray of sunshine in this dark and awfully cold winter!

  241. the blouse would help pull my work wardrobe into spring. boy has it been suffering due to the cold.
    and just like you i’m finally decorating my bedroom after moving 6 months ago. the lamp would add some extra light into my cave like bedroom. 🙂

  242. These are so lovely! This coming month I’m both starting a new job and moving into a new apartment. Eek! I would love to have the blouse to complete a first day outfit that made me feel stylist and confident. And the lamp would be perfect for my desk at home, well for the desk I still need to buy and assemble.

  243. Whenever I think of pleats, I think of that funny line from the Anchorman…perhaps to racy to share here. Let’s just say, let it shine!

  244. I think every girl right now is looking for a way to feel pretty and cozy despite grey skies and chilly temps–this looks like just the ticket.

  245. Pretty pleats, pretty please! I adore both the blouse and the lamp. They’d certainly add some much needed cheer in the upcoming months while I finish up my PhD thesis!

  246. Pleats are my favorite detail! So with a gorgeously classic blouse and a wonderfully simple lamp, how could I not have a brighter winter?

  247. LOVE this pairing! I love everything EmersonMade, and I am new fan of Gretel. I’m trying to decorate my guest room/office – the most neglected room in my little house up to this point. The lamp would be great there! The blouse is so perfect for work, brunch, daytime date, life in general…

  248. I’ve been eyeing this top! It would certainly be something comfy to wear during this dull winter! And the lamp is classic! Perfect by my bedside.

  249. This pair is oh so lovely! The pleats are superb and the lamp would really help create a warm atmosphere to my windowless office 🙂

  250. adorable! i just moved back to LA, so my room could use some brightening up. and that blouseeee – love the pleats.

  251. the lamp would provide some light & design to my artist table…and that amazing blouse will put some new life into my student wardrobe (I’m returning to school for the 2nd time at age 29 to pursue art!…it’s wonderful..but i have no money to look good 😉 a cute blouse could go a long way in my lil’ life 😉
    Thanks for the opportunity-

  252. I’m currently in my first year of law school – looking cute while having something pretty to light up my late night study sessions would definitely brighten up my dreary winter!

  253. Both give such a light and airy feeling. They would both lift my mood. I am in Portland and it is constantly grey and in need of a little light.

  254. That lamp would brighten up any room in my house, but particularly my office. And that blouse would brighten my winter, spring, summer and fall it’s so beautiful!

  255. Oooh, what a giveaway. Okay, have been stalking the Emersonmade site for weeks, but the old family budget has not allowed me to purchase. That beautiful blouse would brighten my day for sure! And the lamp could replace our old Ikea bedroom lamp with the turning-switch-from-hell. It literally hurts our fingers to turn it on.

  256. Oh my, these beauties would surely brighten up my month! Dreary gray days, move over, these light and pretty lovelies will pave the way for Spring perfectly in my home.

  257. The lovely lamp and spring-colored blouse are just what this Minnesota gal needs to brighten up the next few months of winter 🙂

  258. oh my! i’m trying to brighten my wardrobe from winter blacks and on the hunt for the perfect vintage dresser. this pink shirt would enliven my clothing options and the lamp would be PERFECT on the low gorgeous dresser i’m hunting for.

  259. this would SO brighten up my winter!!!! i adore emersonmade and i need that lamp for sure for my new house next year! college girls…we dont have time/funds to obtain such GREAT items!

  260. Both of those pieces are so sweet, and would make a bright spot in otherwise dull winter weather. I have fallen in love with soft drapey blouses lately, and I would love to add that one to my collection. The lamp would be the perfect addition on the table next to our cozy couch!

  261. Love that light, I just moved and have been doing without such niceties! As for the EmersonMade top, well, I’ve been pining over everything they make lately… 🙂

  262. just discovered your blog – and i’m in love! 🙂 esp w/ your this&that posts. such a cheery little top/lamp combo would definitely brighten up dreary nashville winters.

What isn’t to love about EM. I’ve been anxiously awaiting her Spring line, and this blouse is at the top of my bday list!

  275. I wear entirely too much black…I think that blouse may chipper me up a bit. The lamp, well it will be given a nice compact fluorescent and will light up my boudoir quite nicely. Mmmhmm.

  276. Having just blogged today about all things pleats and folds this timing is perfect! This trend has me swooning. I just love the folds and pleats in fabric or paper. Just about anything for using pleats in fashion or home will do!

  277. I would love to give this “this & that” combination to my baby sister whose birthday it was recently (twenty!)… She’s really developing her own style recently, and I think that this would be a great addition to her wardrobe! Plus, she really needs a lamp for her desk, and she may as well have a really pretty one to inspire some bright ideas!

  283. How would these brighten my winter?? I adore pleats and I think these would do the trick for me!! : )

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  288. The blouse would brighten up my day as I wear it, and the lamp would brighten up my nights in my little office. (of course during the day it would look stunning, too…)
    What a cool giveaway! Thank you. 🙂

  290. I always wear the darkest of dark colors during the winter. It really bums me down! This light, soft color of the blouse with the ADORABLE pleats + the “oh so bright summer” lamp would really liven up my winter!!! 🙂

  291. My parents are moving into a new house in March that they built from the ground up after saving pennies for 25 years. To say they are my heros is an understatement! I’m planning on furnishing as much of their new house as possible, and this lamp would be perfect! (The top would be a great housewarming party outfit for myself 🙂

  292. love EmersonMade! I’d use the lamp as a spotlight and prance around being cute in pleats 🙂

  293. Oh my goodness, I need that lamp in my life to read those awesome Dwell magazines in bed! And that blouse would make any day brighter!

  295. i’m LOVING the new EmersonMade line… loving it! I adore that blouse not only b/c of the neckline but the color. I’m also really enjoying that table lamp. It’s industrial yet slightly delicate, it’s interesting.

  351. The lamp that sits on my desk has been there for the past five years. It is a clip lamp that is clipped on to the shelf above the desktop.

  352. That blouse will fit in so nicely with my grays now and transition nicely into spring when I’ll pair it with a little swing skirt a la Emerson Made. The lamp will give off a nice little glow in the gloominess that is winter in the North East. Thanks, Joy!

  457. I have a three month old and have to go back to work February 7. I think this would brighten my winter and my mood!

  458. Oh my. What a lovelylovely giveaway.
    I would put this lamp in the dark corner of my den and it would light up the room just like my smile will light up my face when I am wearing that amazing top.

  459. The pleated blouse and gray skirt will make me shine in this Valentines day! I’m sure my husband would love to see me on that, and its time for my lonely table to have some company: that beautiful lamp! I’m already imagining how it perfectly fits!

  460. What a sweet top! The color and ruffle collar are so reminiscent of spring, how could it not brighten up the winter! And the shade and shape of that lamp is so clean… makes me want to start me spring cleaning NOW!

  461. The blouse is so sweet! I would love to wear it in winter AND spring. It would carry me through the harsh midwest winter! And I know just where I would put the lamp, the soft light in the pleats would look awesome against my gray paint! Cheers for offering both!

  462. We have light that comes into our home (obviously), but our shotgun-style cabana is angled in such a way that there is no direct light flowing in. Bummer. The dainty light would help that, especially since I work and photograph at home. Also, the last time I bought clothes for myself was probably 2006. I should get on that…
    Cheers,
    *Heather*

  463. these would make things a lot happier around here! we are buried in a new england winter with little opportunity to wear something pretty, and also we have a new house that has very little in it, much less beautiful lamps. lovely giveaway!

  464. I love the sweet pleats and soft colors of both the lamp and the shirt – they would add a perfect dash sweetness and softness to winter-almost-spring-time!

  465. The softest of pale tones reminds me that Spring is right around the corner. If I patiently wait and enjoy crisp sunny days this winter, Spring will be that much sweeter.

  466. I just had a baby girl and desperately need to freshen up my wardrobe. This would be a lovely shirt to wear on my first night out alone with the hubs!
    Sitting on my desk is a silver lamp that I saved from the dumpster when my office was downsizing. It has nice old school lines, but it is a pain to turn on and its elbow springs are loose. A new lamp would be lovely.

  467. The lovely little blouse would put some spring in my day, and the lamp would help brighten my dreary apartment!

  468. I live in a gloomy college dorm, so this lamp would definitely light up my life. And with better grades from studying under this light I will have time to wear that beautiful top and go outside to have some fun!

  469. I”d kill for that lamp. seriously need a major brightening moment as we are being dumped with so much freaking snow here in NY 🙁

  470. Emerson + pretty task lighting = me, dressed and lit glamorously for a busy [but infinitely happier] January day in work-at-home solitude.

  471. love. love. love. the lamp is just effortlessly chic. every detail down to the the cord was thought-out and carefully considered. i’ve been on gretel’s site a few times and never noticed the lamp until now – how did i miss it?! 🙂

  472. we’re looking for the perfect small lamp to place on the piano so my husband can actually read his music! And that blouse is just to die for.

  473. The lamp would look so cute in my new white office! And the blouse is so gorgeoous both in color and details! It would be great for spring!

  474. I just moved this winter and realized I have NO lamps of any kind anymore…and I need one! And that shirt is absolutely lovely…wearable casually or on a classy, winter date night 🙂

  482. I love EmersonMade, plus I’m in need of some cute blouses for my new job! And since I’ll be using the car now, the lamp would go perfectly in my husband’s new home office.
    What a wonderfully perfect giveaway, thanks for the chance to win!

  483. EmersonMade – both her clothing and her sassy attitude – can brighten any cold winter day! Add a cool lamp and wow, it’s like summer in the wintertime!

  484. Hi Joy,
    As I sit in my office and type this, there is a white out snow storm blasting the streets of Philadelphia. This lovely feminine top would remind me that warmer days are ahead. Not to mention that the lamp looks just divine. I have been remodeling my home for the past few weeks, and could use some soft lighting.
    Best,
    Alison

  485. Oh, EmersonMade how I love thee,
    let me count the ways.
    Your gold coin necklaces and
    tuxedo jacket warrant endless praise.
    What better way to leave the house
    Than in this soft and peachy blouse?
    And oh, how lovely that lamp would look
    Upon my desk in its little nook
    Keeping me from turning on
    The flourescent lights I wish were gone
    I’m afraid I just cannot settle
    On anything less lovely than this piece from Gretel.
    What better way to light up the season
    Than with this duo that’s just so pleasin’?

  486. Well this would certainly brighten my winter! I never have much luck winning things, so that alone would be pretty exciting! And to get such a pretty blouse and lamp! UGH! It would be perfection!

  487. i read oh joy to brighten up my winter – i live in the midwest where we get this lovely blanket of gray from late november until springtime, so it is DARK over here!
    emersonmade is so happy and cheerful – if she can’t make the winter seem brighter i’m not sure what could – if you want to get literal, the (stunning) Gretel hector lamp would definitely do the trick!

  488. THAT shirt would brighten my winter just by allowing me to be my lovely self (also it will look fantastic with a pair of boots i just purchased). And the lamp would make reading in bed that much more delightful 🙂

  489. THAT shirt would brighten my winter just by allowing me to be my lovely self (also it will look fantastic with a pair of boots i just purchased). And the lamp would make reading in bed that much more delightful 🙂

  496. These items are amazing! The blouse would brighten up my very dark winter wardrobe, and the lamp would be a nice change from the harsh florescent lighting of my office. Thanks!

  497. Oh my! What a darling pairing! Given the freeeeezing Philly winter weather, this darling blouse and its adorable tiny pleats would bring much needed cheer and light to my closet and wardrobe, while the lamp would fill dark days with soft light- just what my living room needs right now! Crossing my fingers that these two treasures make it to my home in Philly! xo

  498. I am getting awfully sad and grumpy as winter here in Washington DC keeps getting worse. I’ve been lusting after Emerson Made clothing for awhile now– and I love the pleats and pale pink of both the lamp and the blouse! {fingers crossed}

  499. This paring works so well together! I love that it’s minimalist but interesting and beautiful. I’d be happy to wear the pretty blouse to work and I’d curl up with a book under the light to read after a long day.
    I’m also loving EmersonMade’s new spring dresses~

  500. Such a beautiful combo! I’m going to Greece in April and that blouse will be a reminder of the warmth to come.

  501. I work at an architecture firm in the basement of a 100+ year old church. Light and cozy would definitely brighten up my little corner space!

  502. Limited overhead lighting and a big tree blocking my window makes my apt pretty sad in the winter. The lamp and the blouse would add a little happiness!

  503. The blouse is such a soft whisper of spring’s coming and the lamp would provide some much needed light therapy to brighten up my dark, winter days.

  504. I’d put the lamp by my bed for reading and I’d love that top to wear to work (I looooooove everything at emersonmade!)

  505. I live in Minnesota and right now it seems like winter will never end. Right now, I’m totally drawn to beautiful lights and lots of spring colors! This pairing would definitely help get me through the remaining winter months…

  506. i live in boston where we are seeing our third big snowstorm this year and things could not look any more despondent! i miss the sunshine and brightness and both of these things could bring a bit of it to me in this grey, parka weather.

  507. OH, this would SO brighten up my winter! I had one of those mornings today where I just hated everything in my closet. Ugh! This top would certainly brighten THAT up and as a crafter, I’m always looking for great lighting that actually LOOKS cute!!! And…with several feet of snow still covering my yard…my winter needs brightening! HA!

  508. oh my goodness, I love all of these items! I am planning a trip to Italy and France this summer and I think this lovely outfit would be perfect to take along! And that lamp…it would go in the studio space I am creating this weekend! So long guest room!

  509. I’m all about the pretty, girly pleated shirt. Love it! I could totally use a new desk lamp too..mine is from target and more about function than design…this one is great!

  516. I’m all about the pretty, girly pleated shirt. Love it! I could totally use a new desk lamp too..mine is from target and more about function than design…this one is great!

  517. Love love love! How could these two beautiful pieces not warm your heart and brighten your day? If I must endure another few months of cold and lack of vitamin d, I’d happily do so with that sweet little lamp and cozy pleated blouse.

  518. OH my! What a lovely giveaway. I’ve love EmersonMade for so long, I would love to own a piece. And that lamp-splendid!

  519. Both are lovely… the pale shades remind me of a winter sunrise over the snow. (The snowier it is, of course, the less you need anything to brighten your day — the sun’s reflections become almost blinding during the day and you can still ski by moonlight.)

  520. The lamp and the blouse are absolutely beautiful… I’ve been on the search for a new desk lamp to shine some light onto my lamp-less desk. And the blouse would be a lovely addition to my, “I haven’t shopped this entire winter” collection in my closet. (:
    eee.

  521. I work from home, and am in desperate need of a new lamp and something to get me out of my sweats. These two go SO well together and would look lovely on/next to my sofa.

  522. I love this giveaway! The blouse is sign that spring will come, and that lamp could add some gentle light to days that are still too short!

  523. The outfit reminds me of spring, which always makes me happy. Yet, it looks like it’s warm enough to wear during a mild winter’s day. 🙂 The lamp is simple and elegant and would fit well with any decor.

  524. I recently discovered that pleats compliment the hell out of me. This was after purchasing that polka dot dress by alexa chung at madewell. also been looking for a nice simple but not boring desk lamp. Hope I win these pleated goodies!

  525. Man, all of E.M.’s things are great. This shirt is up there at the top of her best stuff to date. Love the lamp too, have the perfect spot for it.

  526. This Emerson blouse would brighten my winter because my wardrobe is looking a little dull lately. And that Gretel lamp would brighten my winter by replacing the drab brown lamp that is by my favorite reading spot.

  527. That’s the perfect pair! I love Winter but sometimes it just lasts a little too long. The pretty blouse would give me reason to feel fancy enough to want to get out of the house (blast all the rain!) but the light would make staying inside cozy, without the dreary.

  528. You had me at “blouse” … a much more elegant & satisfying moniker than “shirt.” Suddenly I’m not Amanda … I’m Miss Meeker, and I might even be going on a date with Carry Grant. That would certainly brighten up my winter!

  529. These are both beautiful items. My husband and I recently moved into our first home together and will be actually buying items (furniture, lamps, etc.) for the first time in our lives. We’ve always relied on other people’s cast-offs, so it would be nice to kick it off with such a pretty lamp. And the shirt, I like pretty things for myself but will have to cut back a lot if we plan on ever furnishing this home!

  530. I’m so ready for spring…but in Chicago, that sometimes means waiting until June. Would love these light and airy pieces to appreciate (at least for now) indoors.

  531. Well, my winter is pretty bright right now. I live in California and it has been sunny and warm every day for the last month. I do love the lamp and blouse though.

  532. That lamp would be the perfect addition to my desk, and the blouse is just the kind of thing I’ve been looking for to brighten up my favorite winter skirt.

  533. LOVE this pair. This lamp will brighten up my lampless bedroom and shirt, well its just beautiful!

  534. Having just graduated, I’m both updating my wardrobe to be professional and beautiful and ME… and I’m starting to sell my beautiful jewelry. I was just thinking the other day how helpful it would be to have a brighter light to photograph my work with (there are no overhead lights in my apt., and I’ve only got one little floor lamp in the corner of each room). I was going to go to Target… you know the whole recent-grad/poor thing. But this would be awesome and gorgeous!
    Yeah, I could use both so much….

  535. This is so gorgeous! Winning would definitely brighten my winter- I need something positive to happen in my life right now!

  536. I love the pleats. I love the colors. This would brighten up my winter/spring/summer/fall for sure!

  537. so lovely and i need a little bit of lovely in my life right now, what a great way to prepare for spring.

  538. This blouse would make me excited to get dressed for work, and the lamp might help me actually wake up for work. Both are beautiful.

  539. I love the pretty colors and the forgiving shape of the blouse. I have wanted some cuter lighting for our living room for a while now. I know my husband won’t want to get any until our old lamps break, so winning this would brighten my rooms faster. 🙂 Thank you!

  540. I work in a very male-dominated office, and by male-dominated I mean that I am the ONLY woman. I am always on the lookout for items that feel feminine, yet professional enough that the guys can’t make fun of me too much (not that I wouldn’t dish it back to them)!
    I immediately thought that this pair would be perfect to brighten up my winter 🙂

  541. I would love to wear that blouse to a job interview since I am graduating in May…and then be hard at work by the light of that beautiful lamp!

  542. The colors are so light and pretty! The lamp would brighten up my office and the blouse is perfect for a romantic Valentine’s dinner!

  543. The top would get me out of my somber black winter wardrobe, while the lamp is lovely… I would look at it everyday and it would shine away the winter blues.

  544. I love the pleated details on both the blouse and the lamp’s shade! The blouse is beautiful and the color is a perfect reminder of Spring. The lamp would be a wonderful companion to a good book and a cozy blanket.

  545. I would love a little more light on my sewing table and the blouse looks like fun to wear in these darker days!

  546. The brightness of the lamp would definitely improve my overcast winter in Portland, and the shirt, oh the shirt! I’d wear it all the time. I love the clothes at EM, they are just beautiful and simple.

  547. what can i say… pleats make me smile. and a beautiful lamp would make me glow-literally! okay, maybe not but it would definitely brighten my dark apartment.

  548. LOVE both items. Can’t think of a better way to brighten up my day, both literally and figuratively!!

  549. Clean and uncluttered! Great any time of the year but especially peaking out of these grey winter days.

  550. Thank you Joy for the emerson coupon. I used it today on the moto jacket. I am very excited, it is my first emerson piece of clothing. Love her style.

  551. There’s something I find rather delightfully cheerful about pleats, and my new studio apartment certainly needs all the help it can get.

  552. 612: That gorgeous blouse would help me hang on until the sun starts to shine again, and that lovely lamp would brighten up my little sewing corner!

  553. Anything with texture makes me smile! I would use the lamp at my desk at work and wear that adorable outfit the first day that weather permits… which will be any day now (crossed fingers) since I am in LA

  554. oh, this would SO brighten up my winter!! i am in desperate need of a beautiful blouse to wear to a nice dinner, and would love to read with that beauty of a light sittin’ next to me!

  555. Such a fab giveaway! I love the pleats on the EM blouse (EmersonMade’s entire line is amazing) and the lamp would be great in my little reading nook. Such a wonderful giveaway!

  556. the winter doldrums are starting to get to me, nothing like a bright blouse and lamp to add a little sunshine!

  557. together, they make me think of cupcakes and peaches n’ cream. and desserts always brighten up my day!

  558. I’m a full time students with a part time job and that blouse would be lovely to wear to work, and the lamp would be great to study by!

  559. I live in Boston and we’re in the midst of our 4th Nor’easter. Even if I can’t leave my house because of the knee high snow, I can curl up with a book under this beautiful lamp while wearing that gorgeous blouse – even if no one else sees it!

  560. This cute blouse makes me think of high-waisted skirts, so I’d probably be tempted to dress non-weather-appropriate. That little lamp looks like the perfect addition for a reading nook on a chilly night.

  561. This shirt would brighten up my winter because it would brighten up my wife’s winter!
    This lamp would brighten up my winter because it would brighten up my living room!

  562. What a lovely combo! I would use this lamp on my desk at work. I am in an impersonal cube, and this lamp would add the perfect amount of function and personality.
    I adore the blouse– it reminds me of springtime.

  563. After yet ANOTHER East Coast snow storm, just about anything not involving precipitation would brighten my winter. The fact that both the blouse and lamp are truly lovely just makes it better.

  564. The blouse would make me feel beautiful and the lamp would be delightful to knit by!
    Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

  565. This pair would brighten up my work day. I would love this lamp for my gloomy office building and I love that blouse…so perfect.

  566. The blouse would make looking professional for my new student teaching job so much easier, and the lamp would brighten up my drab dorm room!

  567. My newly pregnant self would be brightened by emerson and my soon to be nursery will need some light for those 2am feedings!

  568. I would love to contrast these with something harder–black jeans, a vintage wood crate–to bring out their delicacy.

  569. The blouse reminds me of the first blush of love and sweet sprays of spring flowers, while the lamp would illuminate my jottings of plans to plant, stretch and grow. Thanks for the inspired giveaway!

  570. The Little Blouse and Hector lamp would fuel my love of ruffles and pleats. It knows no end.

  571. oh my goodness! dream giveaway! i love emmersson made anything and that lamp could really brighten up my room in the dark winter evenings! fantastic giveaway!!

  572. We all need a little softness and femininity in our lives…especially in the dark, cold, gray of winter. I sure would feel special getting dressed up in that beauty with the warm glow of the pretty lamp on my night side table.

  573. I adore both the blouse and the lamp. They are both modern and feminine… my favorite combination!

  574. That lamp would be the perfect accompaniment to brighten up my bedroom, and the blouse is a reminder that spring is not too far away.  I hope I win!

  575. i’m a florida girl so my winter’s been pretty bright, but these beautiful whites are just what my house and i need to welcome the impending warm (er, HOT) months. such treasures!

  576. I’m in the middle of redecorating my room and that lamp will fit in perfectly. As for that lovely top, I’m always looking for something new to freshen up my wardrobe!

  577. I love this! This & That or His & Hers! It would brighten up me & my boyfriend’s winter. A new shirt for a surprise date I am going to take him on and a simple light for our nightstand in our new apt together. 🙂

  578. This pairing would brighten my dull and boring winter wardrobe and my little room I call an office! Oh this is such a wonderful wonderful giveaway! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  579. Well, that’s simple! I would wear that cute little blouse while sitting at my desk writing postcards under the glow of that lovely, pleated lamp. I would, of course, be drinking some nice Earl Grey tea, and snacking on some biscuits. It would be lovely.

  580. This would brighten up my winter immensely! The condo I moved into when I got married has one lightbulb in every room! So dark and gloomy! That lamp would be wonderful in my little office. Wish I had noticed the lightbulbs before I painted the walls gray.
    Both the blouse and lamp are just too cute!

  581. The blouse would bring a little spring fun, into rainy Portland! Plus that lamp would brighten the grey!!

  582. there is nothing more romantic than pleats! and in the midst of this incredibly snowy northeast winter, a pretty pink shirt and a bit of soft, small task lighting would make things feel just so rosy & cozy.

  583. Please give me the pleats!!! Overworked and underpaid, I’m too short on cash to buy myself any winter pick-me-ups! Please, give me a light (and a shirt?) for the end of my tunnel!

  584. The pale pink blouse would inject a little springtime pastel into my mostly gray and black winter wardrobe. And the lamp would illuminate my desk as I work on new jewelry designs for the warmer months ahead.

  585. How did I not already enter this giveaway? I love the pleats you’ve paired here. Both pieces are perfectly feminine, without being overly so. My winter would be brightened every time I smile in the mirror at that lovely blouse or sip some cocoa by the light of that adorable lamp.

  586. I am very tired of snow and below 30 degree weather. I think either of these would bring springtime closer. Or at least in the house, if I wear the blouse next to the fire!

  587. I live in MinneSNOWta…it doesn’t take much to brighten the winter days. However, if I won these it wouldn’t just illuminate winter, it would make the season GLOW.

  588. Well the lamp would obviously brighten things up literally, which my apartment seriously needs, and the blouse would brighten things up by bringing a touch of Spring into Winter!

  589. I’m in the process of fixing up my new room and that amazing lamp would be the perfect addition. The blouse? That would lighten up anyone’s life!!

  590. I would love to win both that adorable blouse and cute lamp! It’s very dark and cold here in Nebraska so I I’d love to wear that light, airy blouse to work with a cute pencil skirt and read books in bed each night by the light of my new bright white lamp!

  591. My winter would be immeasurably brightened by the smile I would have whenever I wore that shirt or turned on that lamp.

  592. Both the blouse and the lamp are so soft and pretty, and I love the clean modern lines. Chicago is so grey this time of year, and the lamp will bring some much needed light into my office. And the blouse makes me look forward to warmer weather!

  593. So pretty! That blouse would add a little perk to my black and gray winter outfits. And my apartment doesn’t have very good lighting, so that little lamp would be perfect.

  594. I’m having the winter blues, aka S.A.D.
    I need a bounce in my step and a light in my life.

  595. Both such beautiful pieces! Though I’m not sure I could pair them all day every day, the lamp would look beautiful with my newly-painted cream colored walls (and vintage clock!), and the blouse – well, what brightly-colored high-waisted skirt doesn’t look fabulous with a pleated cream-colored top!
    : ) Rachel

  596. I’m almost done recovering from major surgery for my severe ulcerative colitis. This amazing blouse would brighten up my almost all black wardrobe when I go back to work in February. Also, the lamp would look great on the dresser in our bedroom since we just cracked the shade on our favorite lamp. 🙁
    This win would be a lovely pick me up this hard winter!

  597. when i look at anything EmersonMade, rainbows fly out of my eyes and daisies start blooming–right out of this snow infested ground! Surely, if I actually owned that beautiful blouse, I could conquer this icy winter with a smile.
    The lamp is to die for too 🙂

  598. I would be a Georgia peach in San Francisco! Walking through the Financial District would be a fabulous trip in my new pleated skirt. Love!

  599. Wow. I love this pairing! Living in Minnesota the lamp and blouse both give a glimmer of hope that ‘spring is coming!’ such a welcomed sight!

  600. The lamp would brighten up my recycled desk and chair where I work till late hours designing websites and dreaming of one day having my very own studio! And the blouse would make feel prettier !

  601. I’ve been smitten with Emersonmade for a while and being that I’m from New Hampshire and they are based of New Hampshire, I think it’s just fate!

  602. light? light! i can always use more light to brighten my day in the winter. a girl can’t have too many tops either…smashing giveaway! would love to win, thanks joy!
    j.

  603. The lamp would make my desk much cheerier, while the blouse is winter-appropriate and yet springlike!

  604. My winter wardrobe is all black — so this blouse (which I’m in love with) would definitely brighten it up! And I can already imagine this pretty little lamp in my apartment 🙂 Great giveaway!

  605. Equally lovable. Blouse is divine and the lamp would be perfect for my office desk that I share with my fiance, who agrees its adorable.

  606. This blouse would be a wonderful compliment to the lipstick shade i usually wear and would love to see this lamp on my desk.

  607. This lamp would really be a treat for my husband and I to enjoy in our new apartment, and the blouse is so beautiful…I would be delighted to have it!

  608. My husband and I have been searching for a lamp and this would be such a perfect fit, also having that blouse would be lovely treasure!

  609. I have always had a strong aversion to overhead lights and therefore have developed a minor obsession with lamps. This one, with its cream color and beautiful pleats, would be an instant upgrade to the one currently perched on my desk. And the shirt would look great in my wardrobe now, layered under cardigans, and would be a great standout piece once the weather gets warm.

  610. The skirt is darling and makes me think of spring! And what better way to spend some January and February chilly nights than tucked inside reading a book by the cozy lamp!

  611. My winter is rushed and hectic – the great pleating details on both the shirt and the lamp would be nice reminders to enjoy the little things despite my busy schedule!

  612. Ahh! The color of these makes me feel like I can just smell the honeysuckle outside! I’m so over winter..

  613. I will be finally moving out of my college apartment when I graduate in May! I would love to decorate my new place with the Hector pleated lamp from Gretel!

  614. oops, I thought we had to choose between the two! my lucky day (hopefully!).
    I would love to decorate my first post-graduation apartment with the Hector pleated lamp from Gretel and wow my new co-workers when I walk into work on the first day wearing the lovely EmersonMade pleated blouse!

  615. i’m in love with that lamp
    and who could ever say no to pleats
    I have one too many dry clean only pleated skirts
    but they are well worth it

  616. That lamp would be great on my new office..I just redecorated a room to be my new office. and that blouse would be perfect for me in a few months after I give birth to my baby boy. Mama needs a new cute blouse. 🙂

  617. I recently got back to Massachusetts from much nicer weather, am in college, and have a very distressing, stressful, and cold semester ahead of me. A beautiful lamp would help me study and brighten my boring college dorm room. And the blouse is just gorgeous :)The lamp and blouse would help me get through the dreary months ahead of me. . .

  618. with all of the snow that we’ve had in the east, these two items would definitely make my winter a little brighter! the blouse would put me in mind of sunny days spent outside, sipping a latte and reading a book. the light would help brighten up my somewhat stark apartment… all the black and white needs some warming!
