Update: And the winner is… #86 Nikki! Congrats to our winner and thanks to everyone who entered!

Please note: This giveaway has ended and is now closed to further entries.

We've teamed up with Avon to give one lucky Budget Babe reader the chance to win one of Avon's Spring Fashion Essentials (shown above), curated by celebrity stylist Jeannie Mai!

This spring, Avon wants you to think smarter about your picks to make the most out of your closet. Avon's Celebrity Stylist, Jeannie Mai, is delivering major fashion 411, and has the scoop on what you need to revamp your look without spending a lot.

Military Style - Military Style Watch (Available end of April, $29.99)
"The best way to stand at attention, not only to fashion but also to dedicated troops is to march some military inspired pieces into your wardrobe," Jeannie says. "The Military Style Watch is perfect for layering with opposing colored bracelets and bangles."

Play with Platforms - Peep Toe Mini Wedge ($19.99)
"The biggest trend making strides this season are platforms," says Jeannie. "Fashionistas everywhere are giving their steps a break with the support of sexy wedges and platforms."

Or, if you're loving the cork trend, try Avon's Ankle Strap Fashion Wedge ($24.99).

Accessorize with Style - Kenneth Jay Lane Branch Out Bracelet ($59.99)
Add fun accessories to bring ordinary pieces to life! "The best way to go from day-to-night is to light up the dark," Jeannie explains. "Jewelry is the easiest way to bring your own spotlight."

#42 Dashing Diva (Homepage) on 2011-04-21 08:11
actually i'm really liking the nude wedges pictured above, even after going through all the inventory! i like that it's nude, and not too high looking - leg lengthening, but without the danger of really over-the-top shoes!
