One of the things I love most about getting dressed everyday is the ability to feel like I’m creating different variations of my own self – almost like dressing up as different characters in a play. Although I often tell my clients to aim for a balance of different styles or looks… like edgy + girly or modern + vintage… I must admit – I DO love going for a full-out costumed effect every once in a while. Just makes life a little more interesting (and a heckofa lot more fun), you know?
When I was asked by Eat, Sleep, Denim to help showcase the fabulous 70’s style collection of MiH Jeans for Shopbop.com, I could not resist the challenge! Especially because it gave me a chance to style up some sassy new jeans in a look from my favorite era. I hopped over to the MiH website to learn more about the brand and gain some inspiration, and I loved reading about the family connections within the company – I’m a sucker for a good story – and the photos of vintage denim were so fun to see!
Now, onto the fun part: YOU have a chance to win a pair of jeans from the MiH Jeans for Shopbob.com Resort capsule collection! The rules are super simple…
- First, like Shopbob on facebook.
- Then upload a photo of your favorite 70’s style inspiration (can be you or otherwise!) onto the Style & Pepper facebook page (making sure to tag MiH for Shopbob in the text of the post). Oh, and you’re welcome to click our like button while you’re there, as well. :)
The contest ends on Friday at midnight, and I’ll choose and announce a winner on Saturday (Christmas Eve)! Note: commenting on this post will not gain you an entry to the contest. Next week, I’ll also post a round-up sharing the winner’s photo and my favorites!!!
If you need a bit of inspiration, I would definitely recommend that you check out the other ladies who are participating in the showcase (and who ALSO happen to be some of my fave blogging buddies), and I can’t wait to check out their 70’s looks as well: Cheetah is the New Black, Wit & Whimsy, Sweet Caroline in the City & Eat, Sleep, Denim!
