Dead Ringer by Jessie Rosen, Swag Bag Giveaway & Vintage-Inspired Fall Style Guide!

 

DeadRinger-2DEAD RINGER CALI-STYLE SWAG BAG GIVEAWAY!

Jessie Rosen’s debut novel DEAD RINGER is here, and so is Laura Rivers, new girl at Englewood High School. In DEAD RINGER, Laura wants to start the school year with a splash and bring some fun to her new life on the East Coast, but is stopped short by the rumors flying around—rumors about how she’s the uncanny doppelgänger of the school’s most famous suicide victim: Sarah Castro-Tanner.

Regardless, Laura is determined to shake off the weird stares and make a stunning first impression. How? Bright colors, cool accessories, fresh beauty favorites, and a killer attitude.

But Laura may be covering up some secrets with all that California sunshine…

In honor of Laura Rivers and DEAD RINGER, Full Fathom Five Digital is giving away a fabulous pack of prizes designed to give you the Cali-girl look you’ve been dreaming of. Three winners will walk away with Laura Rivers-inspired prizes that, altogether, value at over $400!

DEAD RINGER: Vintage-Inspired Fall Style Guide

Like Laura Rivers, I am a total vintage lover. I’m always scouring the racks at the second-hand shops on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles, and my favorite Sunday activity is the MelFax Flea Market. In fact I wore a vintage red dress to the Dead Ringer release party!

One of the most fun parts about writing Laura was envisioning what she would wear during some of the major moments in the book: her first day of school, her first date with Charlie, and the big Homecoming dance. Laura’s California-meets-East-coast style is definitely my favorite to play with (I’m a New Jersey to California transplant!).

So with that as inspiration, here are some favorite vintage-centered fall looks for all those major moments (that you can 100% steal).
1. First Day of School (or any day of school)

I’m so in love with these ModCloth looks from Carla T. (aka CuriousNatalia.com), so I’m just including the entire gallery. They’re all vintage-inspired, boho-chic, and total school-day material. #girlcrush

2. Friday Night Party
The beaded top says “hippie California girl” but those leather shorts are totally East coast edge. Plus you can rock them with black tights all winter long.

3. School Dance

Breakfast at Tiffany’s…in Malibu. I can see Laura getting looks for being the one girl not wearing a skintight bandage dress for a change. What I would give to own this myself…

School Dance
4. Date Night

“Sweet but sexy” feels right for Laura’s first date with Charlie (or any first date). Plus this has a very Laurel Canyon-LA vibe, and only a Cali girl would rock cream all the way through fall.

5. Netflix & Chillin’

How insanely cozy is this jumper?! And if you wear it with a tiny tank instead of the chunky knit underneath, then you’ll have a very sexy lounging look…

Shop, share, or Pin for your Christmas list. Now please excuse me while I go do exactly that, all in the name of book marketing, of course.
