Being new to the world of blogging (my first post was May 20, 2016), I am learning about blogging the same way I am learning about style….by trial and error. A couple of weeks ago, I had the idea to spend the $50 gift card I received for my birthday to buy an outfit and blog about it. That part of the idea was great! At least to me. 🙂
The second part of the challenge was to have a contest, and give a $25 Amazon card to the winner.
This was the error part of the trial and error! In my mind, many aspiring fashionistas would send me photos of themselves in adorable $50 outfits. I was so excited to see the results.
HAHA. Here are the results: Four family members said they would enter. (None did). ONE…yes, that’s right, ONE beautiful lady whom I do not know sent me a photo.
So, I did not get to see a lot of cute outfits, but I did get to see one cute outfit, and I am declaring Patti Patterson from New Castle, Pennsylvania as the official winner. She will be receiving a gift card. Now aren’t you kind of sorry you did not enter??? Your odds were really good. LOL
Here is the cute outfit she came up with for a grand total of $49.97
- Dress: ANA from JC Penney $19.99
- Necklace: Liz Claiborne from JC Penney $10.99
- Shoes: Madden Girl from Down Under Consignment $7.50
- Purse: Bangles from Peebles Department Store $8.99
Way to go Patti! The outfit is adorable, and so are you. I hope you enjoy shopping some more with your gift card. Thanks so much for entering my contest. It actually was a good idea for you. 😉
