We were approached by The Bellevue Collection to enter a fashion blogger contest to display our styling skills. Using items from its new spring collection, we created a Polyvore set that highlighted our favorite spring picks and best exemplified The Bellevue Collection as a shopping destination.
The marketing department chose its favorite fashion blogger’s entry and will display her set between April 11th and 14th in the center court of The Bellevue Collection. Congratulations to Alison Brownrigg of Porttle for winning! Though the fashion blogger part of the contest is over, your opportunity to enter is just beginning!
From April 1st – 30th, everyone can create their own set on The Bellevue Collection’s Fan Page! The individual who gets the most likes will win a $500 gift certificate shopping experience to the Bellevue Collection.
So that means go create a style guide and promote the contest to your friends so they can vote for you! As an added bonus, if you comment on this post and enter the contest, we will personally go like all of your submissions. So visit The Bellevue Collection’s facebook Fan Page (linked above) for your chance to win! And leave a comment letting us know you entered (including your name)!
Without further ado, here is our style guide:
Our set is what we call “Feminine & Funky Business Nautical.” Since nothing rings in the spring like a fresh take on the timeless nautical trend, we wanted to reinterpret business casual and introduce some seaside lovin’ to the mix. We were absolutely obsessed with both the Fendi and BCBGMAXAZRIA shoes, which are aesthetic opposites. Thus, we decided to introduce two different spins on our main outfit selection, which included tailored, yet no-fuss Vince pants and a professional, yet easygoing vertical striped button down.
On the left is feminine accessories, including chic, nude pumps and a ladylike clutch. On the right are the more funky accessories, including those to-die-for booties (booties in the spring? We think so!) and chunky statement necklace. We stuck to neutral makeup for both looks because we believe a woman should always embrace her natural beauty. The Bellevue Collection is a shopping destination for empowered women who covet both the classic and the fanciful alike, so we wanted to create a look to speak to each side of their style.
We’d love to hear what you think of our look! Good luck!
