Free As Seen on DWTS Earring Giveaway!!

Most long time readers will remember the free earring giveaways we’ve done in the past. They’re brought to you by the lovely Anne Koplik who provides a bunch of the earrings for the stars and pros on Dancing with the Stars. The good news is that Anne Koplik has just finished redesigning their website and so they’ve offered to give away another set of Free earrings from their Ballroom Bling Collection to a Pure DWTS reader.

It turns out that Kristin, Anna, Karina, Hope, Ricki and Peta were all wearing Anne Koplik earrings in their DWTS Promo pics. So, we’ve decided to give away a pair of the beautiful champagne crystal hoops that Kristin Cavallari was wearing:

Of course, now you are probably asking, how do I win? Read more..

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Pure DWTS Summer Schedule

Ok, so we don’t really have a Pure DWTS summer schedule. Although, we also don’t “go dark” either. So, we hope all of you great readers will stick around with us this summer. In fact, we’ve been saving a number of posts we’ve wanted to do all season and just haven’t had time. Can you say Who Wore It Better? (How about a Who Wore It Better Earring Edition? Just saying…)

Speaking of DWTS jewelry, I’m happy that so many of the Pure DWTS readers love jewelry. I guess I should have realized that the predominately female readership of Pure DWTS would love a little bling. In fact, a little birdie told me that Anne Koplik jewelry is another reason you should stick around Pure DWTS this summer. Hard to beat free jewelry.

Not to mention all the other DWTS pro and star updates. You can be sure that Vogue will be keeping us all updated on the latest happenings with the DWTS pros and stars.

Of course, the rumors for Dancing with the Stars Season 13 have already started (Can you say Regis?). So, be sure to stick around for Princess Heidi’s DWTS season 13 cast rumors. She’s like a spy the way she tracks down those rumors.

I could go on, but you get the picture. Last break, we even broke down our feelings about each of the pros in a series we called “The Pros and Cons of the DWTS Pros.” You never know what series of posts we’ll come up with this summer. Maybe the Pure DWTS ladies will combine on a DWTS Shirtless series. I guess maybe it should be called “Who Didn’t Wear it Better?”

If you’re not planning to stick around now, there’s no hope. If you are planning to stick around, you can always sign up for the Pure DWTS email updates so you’ll get emailed with the latest posts added to Pure DWTS. You can also follow us on @puredwts on Twitter and the Pure DWTS Facebook page.

Also, be sure to follow the Pure DWTS sister sites if you’re fans of So You Think You Can Dance and/or America’s Got Talent. The coverage can’t compare to the combo of Princess Heidi, Courtney and Vogue, but we try.

Ok, enough pandering to keep you around. Thanks to all the readers for a great season. Bigger thanks to Princess Heidi, Courtney and Vogue for providing the best Dancing with the Stars coverage available online.

DWTS Earrings Giveaway – Yellow Swarovski Crystal Hoops

I think we’re all quite familiar with the costumes used on Dancing with the Stars. We know about Randall and the challenge he has in putting together the costumes so quickly. We even have our incredibly popular Who Wore it Better series where we compare costumes when they decide to reuse them. What I hadn’t heard much about was the jewelry that Randall decided to use on the show.

Turns out that Anne Koplik Designs provides over over 400 pairs of earrings to DWTS each season. A veritable rainbow of Swarovski crystal earrings in all shapes and sizes. As you can imagine they reuse the earrings on DWTS as well (It is the 12th season). Sounds like we might have to have a special Who Wore it Better: Earring Edition (Courtney?). To find out who is wearing Anne Koplik Jewelry on DWTS each week, just “Like” Anne Koplik on Facebook for all the latest details and photos.

I’m really excited to tell you that Anne Koplik Designs has very generously provided a free set of earrings to a lucky Pure DWTS reader. The lucky winner will get a pair of the Yellow Swarovski Crystal Hoops as worn by Kym and Hines last week (and shown in the picture below).

How to enter to win:
There are 2 ways to enter and unfortunately this is restricted to US residents only. The only person who can’t win is me (or maybe I should say my wife). Be sure to enter both ways to double your chances of winning.
1. Leave a comment on this site about your favorite DWTS jewelry. Be sure to use a real email since that’s what we’ll use to notify the winner.
2. Send a tweet that includes @puredwts and @AKoplikDesigns. Something like the following will work:
I really want to win the Swarovski crystal hoops Kym Johnson wore on DWTS that @puredwts and @AKoplikDesigns are giving away.

That’s all. We’ll run the competition for a week and then do the giveaway next week based on a random selection amongst all the entries.

Check out some of the other jewelry Anne Koplik Designs has provided to Dancing with the Stars:

Here’s a little more info about Anne Koplik Designs:

Anne Koplik the designer…

Anne Koplik, founder, and head designer, has always loved antique jewelry. Anne’s initial inspiration stemmed from her mother’s successful hat design business ambitiously established in New York City during the roaring twenties. For 30 years, Anne has been combining her innate sense of style and design with her vast knowledge of glass jewels, crystals and brass findings to create original works of art treasured for their heirloom quality.

It seems this family tradition remains strong throughout generations as Anne works side-by-side daily with her two daughters Jill and Kara. Jill is the CEO and lead designer. She produces and creates the innovative 200+-piece collection each season, Kara is the CFO who ensures all business, and financial operations run smoothly.

Together these three women have combined their exceptional talents to develop a very successful fashion jewelry company.

Anne Koplik Designs…

We have been featured at the American Music Awards, The Daytime Emmy Awards, and The Tony Awards. Fashion editorial coverage includes prominent magazines such as In Style, Lucky, Modern Bride, Your Prom, Good Housekeeping, and WW to name a few.
