DIAMOND GIVEAWAY from Best Shopping Destination: Disney Springs!

disney_spring_blog_post

Disney Springs is full of family fun for all ages of kids, for sure. 

But it is also jam-packed with the best shopping in the country! 

On my recent trip to Walt Disney World Resort, shopping at Disney Springs blew me away…but I didn’t blow all of my cash. I found incredible deals while finding unique gifts, fashion and beauty items that I could not locate anywhere else. The curated selection of shops provide an exciting mix of accessible but cutting-edge retail experiences.

Levi’s Store and Tailor Shop

I was already Levi’s obsessed — the classic denim brand still makes the most on-trend, able-to-afford and figure flattering denim clothes. And I love a shop where I can pick out casual pieces for all five members of the family. But the icing on the cake is the Levi’s Disney Springs in-house Tailor Shop.levis-tailor-shopThe in-store Tailor Shop offers alteration, hemming, repairs and artistic customizations of your denim selections. This in-house service is unique to only a handful of Levi’s locations worldwide, of which Disney Springs is one. I had the chance to select a Levi’s Trucker Jacket (I went with the women’s Boyfriend Trucker in the light, vintage-feeling sunshine indigo wash) and have the Tailor Shop trick it out with any customizations I liked. They said to think of their service as a “tattoo shop” to personalize my denim and inject it with my own personality. I loved perusing the massive selection of patches and embroidery options, and settled on my nickname on the front. Check out the result and the some of the other personalization styles behind me.

American Threads

Have you ever shopped this store? Their bricks-and-mortar locations are in the South, so I had never before shopped. Dani, Jen and I fell deeply in love with their gorgeous, cool, bohemian-inspired fashions, shoes and gifts. None of us had been in this shop before and all us ended up going home with something beautiful. They offer free transport back to your resort if you are staying on-property at Walt Disney World and free shipping home on purchases over $100. Their low prices and this convenience factor convinced me to pick up a slew of girlfriend gifts and a hat (similar to the one featured in photos here) to keep out the DC winter cold.

Basin

You will only find this luxurious land of bath bombs and all-natural body butters at Disney and in Vegas. Their prices, scents and selection are the very best in the genre.

Luxury of Time by Diamonds International

The Disney Springs store where I spent the most time in a fantasy fog was Luxury of Time by Diamonds International. It is a land of luxury watches, fine gemstone and diamond jewelry. They also provide champagne to shoppers, making it irresistible. I learned about the Crown of Light diamond cut that presents a uniquely curved faceted design that makes for amazing sparkle. I tried on tanzanite rings that looked like they should be in the Smithsonian Natural History museum next to the Hope Diamond.

And best of all, I was chosen as a winner of a $300 diamond and tanzanite pendant from Diamonds International that I have decided to give away as a holiday gift to YOU! This Diamonds International Safi Kilima Diamond and Tanzanite Pendant features an oval tanzanite (.48 ctw) surrounded by a circle of sparkling round diamonds (.10 ctw). Set in sterling silver, it includes a matching 18-inch chain. The gemstones are guaranteed to have been ethically mined. The stunning piece retails for $295.
