Enter to win a $50 gift card to Shabby Apple! We’re huge fans of their colorful, uniquely designed clothing because it’s simple, modest and reminiscent of an older era—polka dot pencil skirts, anyone?
Not only do they give us gorgeous vintage dresses and accessories, they give back, too. Shabby Apple donates a portion of all sales to Accion, a non-profit group that supports the fight against global poverty.
Contestants must have a U.S. shipping address to be eligible for entry. The deadline to enter is next Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Winner will be announced Friday, Feb. 1.
We’d like to give a shout out to our friend, photographer Dave Pavlina, who was just announced as one of the winners of Canon’s Project Imagination Contest. Judges such as Jamie Foxx and Eva Longoria chose winners in 10 categories, and above is Dave’s winning photo in the “Backstory” theme. Here’s what he had to say about this emotional capture:
“I took the shot during an evening hike to Cedar Falls in Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas. I just captured a girl, Abby Anderson, taking in the beauty of a natural landscape,” he said. “I love to photograph in these places because when you take a look around, you realize you’re quite minuscule in comparison to the beauty and power of what surrounds you. That’s what Abby was showing. It’s also interesting to think these landscapes started taking shape long before I existed, and will continue to change long after I’m gone.”
We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Dave on a photo feature for our upcoming holiday issue, out Nov. 12. Click through the photo above to enlarge, and stay tuned for more creative genius.
We had several great submissions for last week’s DIY costume contest, and today we’re announcing the winner: Courtney A. with the idea for the Taco Bell hot sauce costume! Courtney, look out for an email about your prize.
Our next submission for the costume contest came from within the Facets team, and while not eligible to win the Halloween-themed gift basket, this costume was too good to keep to ourselves. We give you: the Box of Franzia costume.
Here’s how to make your own:
You are now equipped with a DIY costume that is less about fashion and more about function. Encourage your friends to take part, and may you all enjoy Halloween responsibly.
"I’m going as a pumpkin this year!" she said. "I have an orange dress, a green wig, some orange and black stripy tights and black shoes! I am sewing black interfacing onto the front of my dress (two triangles and a smile), and I’m also making a necklace and bracelets with artificial ivy." Check her out in this adorable green wig from Wonderland Wigs. Thanks for the submission!
