Scarf hunt with the Caramel Bunny, Nibbles and Giles Deacon


how did i spend my thursday afternoon? well, i spent a few hours yesterday afternoon constantly hitting my refresh button waiting for pop up online boutiques to 'open' on my favourite sites and blogs, so i could virtually queue up for a free scarf. what the hell am i talking about i hear you cry?


the scarf in question (pictured top) is an exclusive design by giles deacon in conjunction with the caramel bunny for a collection (including a polka dot ruched dress, pictured above with the lovely giles) for the launch of cadbury's nibbles. the scarf is only available through online pop up stores that pop up randomly on fantastic fashion sites like asos, msn, handbag.com, mademoiselle robot and bitch buzz on the 29th and 30th October and is completely free and given away on a first come first served basis.

i eventually got mine on on handbag.com (boutique 'front' shown above) after queueing unsuccessfully on asos and msn. even the sites and bloggers are unaware of the time that the nibbles boutique will open on their site, so the only way to discover where the tricksy bunny and her assistants are going next is to follow (very closely) everything she says on facebook! here's handbag.com's explanation of how this fashion-themed treasure hunt works:


it can be a bit frustrating to queue, but it's also a lot of fun and, hey ladies, it's completely FREE! a heads up for today is that 2 of my favourite bloggers Marian and Miggy will each have the bunny and her scarfs on their blogs! this is such a great way to team up the online fashion community and sites and is an inspired social media experiment - she's one clever bunny! good luck getting your scarf today!
