Last week, we hosted our second summertime #Versalette Challenge – with 12 lovely participants who wore their Versalette for 5 days, took photos, and shared them on Instagram.
Although I’ve worn mine A LOT over these last few years, it’s always crazy and fun to be inspired over and over by others.
SO! We have one big winner (a $100 gift card from Seamly.co) and some honorable mentions from the judges panel (who realized that choosing favorites is not an easy job!).
AND THE WINNER IS: JOANNE!
Here’s what the judges had to say about her looks:
“I like how these looks show off the versatility of the Versalette, and how it can be transformed to fit any kind of social setting. I also love that she looks like she’s having so much fun in all these images.”
Of course, there were so many other favorites, too. Here were some of the looks the judges liked most.
“She has her own unique style and looks like she’s totally rocking life while rocking the versalette. I like that she really dressed it up and also dressed it down, and showed how she incorporates the versalette into her life through her shots with her dog, her kids, and singing in front of a crowd (awesome!). Belted look with floral top was my fave.”
“She’s really mixed it up. I’m totally digging the accessories she used for styling. I personally want to be sitting next to her on those steps and hanging with all the lovely people she’s added into her images.”
The judges love dogs, apparently, too, so a hint for the next challenge: puppies make good accessories! Here were a few other favorites. I really dug the energy (I’m lookin’ at you, @kedref) classic style (@laurenhummert) and friends shots (@missleah26 and @choliee09). AND, I learned something new from @missleah26 (wear the Versalette as a long scarf, then tie the sides together – see bottom right) and also from @sweetsomeday (halter top tucked in, see center right!).
All in all, this was one of my favorites. Some new faces, new places, new ways to wear.
Sending a huge, loving, warm “thank-you” to everyone who participated. And, of course, to our lovely judges.
For all of you waiting on your pre-ordered Versalette — an update is comin’ your way next week, and we’ll be sure to do another one of these in the fall or winter!
