This past weekend my brother Andrew and I got together for some brother-sister bonding time…which always includes the camera since we both love hamming it up in front of it.  When he showed up at my house, we were actually wearing similar looks so we knew that dinner would be postponed in favor of doing outfit shots…

For my look, I was really excited to style the Hugo backpack from Be&D into my look.  I’m been on the hunt for a grown up and glam backpack for what seems like forever and I finally have found it from Be&D.  To go along with the leather straps on the bag I wore some strappy cage heels and a floral shift dress to balance out the harder accessories with a flirty print and shape.  I love the mix of soft are hard pieces together to make an outfit really interesting.

Andrew lives in henley shirts so I wasn’t surprised to see him show up in this.  Paired up with his blue chinos, he wore his Oliberté boots–handcrafted boots made in Africa that support worker’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa–we love fashion that supports a good cause!  Finish it off with a cool pair of shades and Andrew looks amazingly casual but well put together.

Exciting news… I’ve teamed up with Be&D to share my love for the brand with YOU (I styled a Be&D bag in one of my very first blog posts here…oh memories!).  I’ll be hosting a special giveaway for Be&D and Just Add Glam fans for your chance to win a $100 giftcard to Be&D to put towards your own piece on a purchase of $150+.  Entering is easy, use the Rafflecopter widget below.  Enter via as many entry methods as you wish…or all entry methods for more chances to win.  The giveaway will be open through October 21, 2013.  Good luck!

What item from Be&D would you purchase if you won the giftcard?  There are so many amazing bags and shoes to choose from.  For me, I think I would go with Andrew’s theme of fashion that gives back and would purchase a pair of the Big City Cure sneaker.  Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Be&D will be donating $10 from each pair sold to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Love love love fashion with a good cause, am I right?!

    Great giveaway Jen! I love the dress you’re wearing and it’s cute that you and your bro are close. 🙂 I love the site and I think I would put the giftcard toward the ‘walking on violence’ sneakers. They’re cool!
