The entries for the XCVI giveaway came in on both Afrobella and on my YouTube channel – and WOW y’all gave me LIFE with all that fashion inspiration! Now I feel the need to dress up my XCVI Silver Queen Tunic Top even MORE!

It is never easy choosing winners, and because of the size restrictions on this particular giveaway it was extra challenging. There were so many more 1X entries than 3X, for example! But three winners have been chosen – and you three will get an XCVI Silver Queen Tunic top (which originally retailed for $98, by the way!)

Those winners are:

DNLee – who won the 1X with this comment:

Hey Bella!
I’m a 1X girl. I love that top. I only wear tops that accentuate my neckline so I am liking the shirt already. And I love the glitzy embellishments on the shirt. I never wear necklaces (I just don’t. I hate things around my neck) but I miss having my neckline accesorized. That top is a twofer. I’m typically a jeans and t-shirt girl and I have a great pair of book cut silvery gray jeans (and some deep dark black jeans, too) to wear with the top. And I have a pair of very high heel sandals with hematite (my fave geo-mineral) straps and matching hematite earrings and bracelets.
Is that too matchy? My aspiring model fashista sister tells me I’m too matchy with the accessories sometimes, but I call it coordinating.

Anyway. That’s how I would rock that too cute top.

Thanks for letting me know about this new brand.

The 2X goes to Lisalis who says:

I’d wear this with a denim pencil skirt or black straight-leg pants or velvet skirt for holiday party. I’m from Baltimore so I treat metallics & embellishments (sequins, beads, fringe, feathers) like the new neutral…can be worn with anything.

And Shug Averi – via YouTube won the 3X with this:

aw. please enter me for the 3x.

i think? i’d rock it with black jeans and some black strappy wedges with silver bangles on the arm, hoop earrings and a black bag and head straight to open mic night with some friends from work!

ps – luv the vids. peace n blessings.

I tried to choose winners randomly, according to size, and from both sites. Not easy! So my next giveaway will probably be just on Afrobella to narrow down the entries to one location.

If you didn’t win this one, please don’t be sad! You offered such great fashion ideas – even if you don’t have this particular top, go forth and rock your finest, go out on those dates with your boo, and enjoy summer fashion to the max!

And keep reading. I’ve got some awesome giveaways coming up in August!

Thanks to my friends at XCVI – check out their website at and don’t forget to follow them on Twitter!. They also have a YouTube channel – check out their Fall collection! Wonder which of those looks will be made in plus sizes….

Thanks Bella...And depending on how long the top is, I might push the envelope and try to rock as a mini-mini. I may be busty, but I've got some killer legs, too! Thanks, lady! I'll be sending photos of me wearing this.
