This past Wednesday, I entered a contest on StyleCaster called "Shoe-Palooza Sweepstakes"... and I won. I won! The prizes are (excerpt from the website), "the mother load from Brians' own favorite resort picks: a cashmere travel kit, iPad, and Lancaster sunscreen." YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Thank you, thank you, thank you StyleCaster!
The challenge was to style an outfit around these fabulous Spring 2012 Brian Atwood pumps--
Here's what my entry looked like--
I was shaking when I read my notification e-mail.. oh and it's true, when it rains, it pours. I like to think that part of the reason why I won is because of my new outlook on life, no more wasting time on negative thinking! I know I'm getting a little serious here but you just gotta concentrate and hone in on what you're good at and the opportunities will come rushing in. I feel a big break in my life real soon! Patience, perseverance and positivity will get you what you want. Think of it as the three 'P's!
Anyway, I decided to make a set of what the above outfit would look like with real pieces. I couldn't find the exact blouse I wanted, so I had to settle for the one you see below.
Oh and I thought I might add my mother's reaction when I told her about my win; it was the first time she's ever told me to pursue a job in fashion. She's been telling me for a few years now to pursue some kind of modeling (catalogue and whatnot), but this time it was just different. I now really feel her support and it's given me courage to work even harder to get to where I want to be.
Without further ado, the set--
StyleCaster has another contest going on right now, and you can win a pair of glasses by Tortoise & Blonde by doing this. Good luck!
