Why I should own a Disco Pony piece (in the letters of the alphabet):

Adoring, Bright, Creative Danielle Eagerly Fancies Golden - Hued Items, Justifying Kooky Little Memos Needing Orderly Presentation. Quintessentially, Receiving Said Treats Understandingly Vows Wild X-travagant Yelping Zealousness!

So in other words, I'd be really excited to own a Disco Pony piece! ;-)

I love the dress and would love it as a romper too!

You look stunning and hopefully if I won I could follow in your footsteps. I tweeted and am following you on Twitter @Morgangemay and follow Inspirafashion on GFC - and think I follow Disco Pony too... not sure! Please pick me :)

I absolutely love all of Zoey's pieces. I love sparkly things, kind of like a crow, and I would hold either one of them up on a pedestal as being better than any other piece I own. They might even be framed and hung on my wall.
And I'll take them in a M. :)

I followed you on GFC and Twitter. I already follow Disco Pony on Facebook and GFC. I'm also going to tweet about it. :)

I need to win that dress because my name is Ivy and I want to be like Natalie someday, so I figured I can be NATALIE just by wearing it literally haha!

First of all: as you will see under my answer, I'd do anything possible to win a Disco Pony dress. I fell in love with the Silver Surfer jacket almost a year ago, and that sequin love has never stopped since then! The reasons seperating me from my true disco-ponyness is strictly financial - you see? not so creative, I just give you the sad-sad truth -, but I spend a few minutes every day on the disco pony page, just to make sure, that my true pony is waiting for my somewhere far-far away... I know, it's a fact, that with a disco pony piece my life will be so much sparklier. And I can't wait for long now, because I had a pact, that I won't buy any sequin clothes from a store, I'm only gonna wear the real pony stuff! So, as all of this being said, here are all my efforts:

I did everything - already a follower of you all :D - also following DP on GFC, and you on Twitter, and I also tweeted about this. So I guess that's three more entries :]

My name is Eszter Karczag, a size M Pony-lover, on Twitter I go by the name Wardrobe Reports.

Entry: 1 (Liked Disco Pony on FB, follower of your blog via GFC)

Aside from it being the most stunning dress (and romper which I also ooh'd and aww'd at) that I've seen (in a long long while), I really love the cut of the back and how it has a very classy silhouette to it. My love for fashion thrives from the inspiration that I get from other fellow fashion designers. If I were to win either of the pieces, I'd wear it often! I love to show support to fellow fashion designers. The amount of labor that is put into design (concept development, ideation sketches, patterning/draping, construction, and fit analysis) is enough for me to appreciate the work that other designers do.

Like I said, I'd wear it often and what better way to show appreciation of another person's design than to do that?

Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

ugh seriously one of the prettiest sequin dresses i've ever seen! Love how you styled it with the boots :)

oh my gosh im in love with this dress!! mmm i wish i could wear it for my bday and i will be turning 21 so yeah it would be perfect, or i could wear it when i go to ny! i would be so happy if i get to win i would wear it any random day and walk the streets of ny in this amazing dress!! (: i would seriously wear it day and night! with some black pumps! ahhh i want it!!! (: wish me luck!!!


Yasmeen said...

I'm following, of course, and I've liked the Disco Pony page :)

I would love to win one of these pieces because I never wear sequins. I know that sounds crazy to say since I'm entering this giveaway but I can explain! Haha. In the past few months I've been trying to step outside my dressing comfort zone. This is definitely not something I would normally wear but I'd love to see where it takes my wardrobe. Two things I do love about it are the silhouette and length. Owning a piece like this (or the jumper) would force me to be more creative with my outfits. I starting brainstorming about how I'd wear it and I made this polyvore set to better illustrate the idea. I hope you like it!

If I win, I wear S! :)

Thank you x a million.

The Dress is absolutely stunning, and iF I win one of the pieces, then it would be more amazing. Sequined dresses are shiny (and absolutely stunning as I've said before), and living in one of the hottest (well, always hot, with the sun always shining) city in the US, the sequins would make the dress shine (reflection of the sun?), and hopefully me too! haha! And well, especially for night outs, it would definitely stand out! <3

This is one of my favorite dresses of all time. I have talked to Zoe multiple times about ordering it but I always end up being broke. #poorpeopleproblems. I almost think I love the romper more than the dress- that is saying A LOT.

I am already a follower. Duh. Liked DP on Facebook.

QandE said...

Reasons I deserve this dress/jumper...huh...or, I could tell you reasons why I don't deserve it.

1) I am not careful with my clothing. I plan on doing a lot of tunneling if I win. Underground, sea cave tunneling to harvest sea cucumbers and lost dreams.

2) I have thick knees. Not so much a problem for the jumper, but, you know...they're an acquired taste when revealed beneath a mini-dress. "Get over it," that's what my knees say to the world. "Get over it, I aid in the process of burrowing."

3) I don't have anything expensive enough to go with a dress of that magnitude. No velvet DVF belts, or nude pinata-esque Giambattista Valli's. I do own a pair of gifted tan JC wedges that I use to stand in puddles and are now "matured" and "have a charming patina to them" according to the geriatrics I teach hot yoga to.

4) I have sensitive eyes. Which you may think is irrelevant, but, I also do a fair amount of telemarking. And, much like the anti-gravity space hole tunneling I plan on doing in this dress (if I win, of course), I will be wearing it as I free that heel. Snow blindness would be a source of constant concern, I'm sure.

Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway!
The Natalie looks stunning on you! I really love the color of your lipstick...elegant yet edgy.

I would absolutely DIE if I could win either of those fantabulisticly amazing pieces! And yes, I did just invent a new word. The words that already exist do not possess the power capable of extolling the beauties of the Natalie dress and jumper.

As I have already told Zoey, I will give up my older brothers for a Disco Pony piece. Are you willing to accept that trade? You could always use some helping hands right? ;)

Actually, if I were to win either of the Natalie pieces, I would lock myself away in a tall tower somewhere. Why you ask? Well, to be honest, some guys just aren't attracted to massive amounts of sequins and shiny amazingness. They think it's "over the top". *GASP* Well, to find my Prince Charming, someone who would APPRECIATE and LOVE the Natalie piece almost as much as me, I would hide in the tower dressed in the piece. Whenever someone would pass by the tower, I would stand in the light to show off that sparkly beauty in all its gorgeousness. I would know that the right person had come to save me if he was willing to shield his eyes from the blinding light and climb up the tower to find me :)

But since I might be waiting a long time in the tower, I would bring my best friend with me. We haven't seen each other in years so the time spent in the tower would be the perfect time to catch up! :)
I'm definitely going to tell her about this giveaway. If we both are *fingers crossed* lucky enough to be able to call these Natalie pieces ours, we could match and be total twinzies!!

Alright, I'm going to stop rambling now. I'm quite terribly sorry that you had to read my mini novel there. I hope my wordiness doesn't disqualify me from this giveaway!

I think I would be a size Medium....but that might not be true depending on how the sizing of Disco Pony pieces works. I'm quite willing to take an size available though! :D

I am a small and I'm the kind of girl who usually is too scared to take risks. I'm the one standing on the sideline, but wishing she was playing. I like to take the easy route: by that, I mean blending in. Wearing things that are stylish but not too out there even though I wish that I WAS out there. I want to be out there through my style. I want to be noticed in fashion. I'm just too scared to do anything about it :) With a piece as statement and out there as the jumper or dress....I feel like I'd finally be wearing what I want to wear and getting that attention. The jumper is so amazing! I'd love to have one of Disco Pony's pieces :)
Thank you SO SO SO MUCH KATHLEEN for another fab giveaway :)

OMG, I LOVE this dress! I love anything sparkly, and this takes the cake! I followed and liked on FB =) I think I would have followed you anyway, I just found your blog actually and I love it! You've got a great style! I'm from the bay area too =) I would love to win this dress (this may not be most "creative" answer but it's my honest answer): I'm a newbie fashion blogger but also a cancer survivor (finished treatment just a little over a year ago). Now that I gained back my physical strength and my hair is growing back out, I am now able to embrace my femininity and the fashion world again. This sequined outfit is the most perfect dress that defines sexy, feminine, and chic. Something that would be great for me! Thanks for hosting! Btw, my size is a small =)

Hope I win! Crossing my fingers!! I would need a Medium.

All my life, I have always wandered aimlessly, just doing what everyone else wanted me to do and never having the courage to do what I really want to.

I have always loved art and fashion, but everyone always told me it a dead end or it wont get me a job that feeds me. Then ond day, I stumbled onto fashion and art blogs and it inspired me to pursue more for my life. Life is so much more than being ok, it's about exploring and discovering new things, doing what you love.

I realized that I need to be in control of my own life and start paving my own path. I recently took my first step towards a new path in appling to art and fashion school. I don't know if I will get in yet, but I hope I will. And when I do, I hope I can wear such an amazing dress and tell the world that it was people behind the blogs like inspirafashion, natalieoffduty, and makeshiftmodel/discopony that helped me realized my dreams.

PS I wear a size medium and can be contacted at

I'm a shy person and I would often just rely on clothing to speak for myself and my personality. Don't get me wrong, I don't think (I hope) I'm not boring, I just need that little confidence boost that would make me come out of my shell and be that crazy girl only a few people know about. Also, I've always been in hot pursuit for the best dress that would make me shine and by winning this contest, the Natalie dress would literally do just that!

Fingers crossed! xx

amanda said...

I completed all that is required!!

Not just a dress to me, it would be my "LBD", my go-to piece when I want everyone to know just how amazing I feel-Natalie can do that and much more.
A piece of art that every girl is hoping to have her very own, but I'd like to think no one more than me.
Tailored and crafted effortlessly so that each sequin sparkles and highlights the beauty of each individual wearing a Natalie piece.
Another trend, the Natalie dress is not, for me Natalie and fashion are synonmous and with that a timeless piece it will be.
Labeled after Zoey’s muse, Natalie Suarez, who exudes the energy of authenticity, and therefore there couldn’t have been a better person chosen.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery as other brands strive for Disco Pony’s level of perfection from the flawless draping in the back to high quality of fabric.
Each Natalie dress is unique and different as no two are exactly the same – each with its’ own soul, each given life by Zoey, Disco Pony’s creator.
