    My name is Angela, and I’m addicted to scarves. I would LOVE to win one of the scarves! And if I won the Gussy GC, I would have issues, because do I use it to get a bag or a cowl? Because my love of scarves is closely followed by a love of bags!

    Erika says

    That’s such a hard choice! I guess if I really had to choose, it would be the Lisa Leonard gift certificate at I have loved her jewelry for quite awhile now.
