The Non Sequitur Sassa Bikini Giveaway

About a year and a half ago I did a PR shoot for Sassa / Barbizon for the broadsheets. It was at this time I became infatuated with huge lenses, and borrowed Markku’s f/2.8 70-200 wonderment (oops that sounded wrong!) to shoot the girls. It was there I met Rosie Unson who did their brand marketing. Here’s a jump shot attempt:


So we’d kept in touch and since I haven’t indulged in a contest for so long, and out of lack for other ideas, I gave her a ring and the conversation evolved into the crazy thought to give out something I’d consider to be so non sequitur: lady swimwear. CRAZY!

OK kids! I’m giving away two things: a really nice rash guard for surfers and a two piece bikini assembled in the traditional elegant fashion of Barbizon. The gallery up there shows how they look. Click on the individual images to see the high resolution version.

Contest Mechanics:

  1. This contest will run until noon of September 11 2009 GMT +800. Obviously it is only open to my female readers from Manila, Philippines.
  2. I’m going to be doing the raffle via comments. I’m aware though that some of you may want the rash guard while others may want the bikini. Others still may want both. So I’ve decided to make this a winner takes all contest.
  3. To enter the contest all you need to do is leave a comment with your name and valid email in the contacts field. Here’s the fun part: you can post as many comments as you want.
  4. As with all my contests, I’ll be using a randomizer application to pick the winner 🙂
  5. I’ll announce the contest winners after September 11, probably over the weekend so you can go claim your prizes from Barbizon.

This is me venting as a frustrated fashion blogger. Go, leave those comments now!!

This is your attempt to do fashion blogging? Boo!
Hey man, at least you’re not pretending to sound “snobbish couture.” 😉

@corey — you get to choose the size haha! and i was thinking about having the winner model the outfit after but it might look perv-ish. but if YOU win i will require YOU to do so 😛

Yes! It’s so cool and nice to wear, it’s comfortable and fashionable. Thanks to SASSA/BARBIZON Products more power!

Cool Bikinis, it’s comfortable when i wear and fashionable look. I like more bikinis of sassa/barbizon. thanks so much.

Never mind if I am the only momma entering this contest. I love Sassa wear because most of my yoga clothes come from them. They are stylish, comfy and wear well on me.

So now I want to check out what a Sassa bikini would feel like. Crossing my fingers! OHHHHHMMMMMMM….

the two-piece is scorchin’ dude. …. I want I want I want. Is that the only colour? Should have more vibrant outfits for summer. ..and who voted for u as the ‘sexiest in the Blogosphere?” =) man, u got the shiznit! Wanna have Cheese & Sauerkraut soon!

I’ll probably have a beach worthy bod by the time I get to wear the bikini (if I hopefully win) next summer.. Let’s all cross our fingers!! =)

I just gave birth almost 3 months ago but I know I’ll look good wearing a Sassa / Barbizon piece.

If I win, I’ll probably just give the bikini to my daughter and settle for the rash guard….hmmm, on the second thought…

I hope to win these lady swimwear outfit so that i can show off my sexy body which i earned from working out in gym. I’m sure these cute swimwear will also boost my self confidence to flaunt the NEW ME.

wow! this might be my fate. September 11 is my birthday and ex Pres Marcos, too… I hope to win this bikini.

it doesn’t matter if it’s the rainy season already, my hubby and i would still love to hit the beach with me donning those bikinis.

I want them! I Want them! I want them!!!!
These would be perfect as I will be headed to Siargao late this year!

i bought a Sassa bikini before, the bra top fits well but the bottom part is kinda big (it is S size by the way). but to heck with that i want another Sassa bikini. im joining this contest. 🙂
