{video & giveaway} Marshalls Fall Fashion Challenge



  Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 6:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
Recently I was challenged by Lucky Magazine and Marshalls in Marshalls Fall Fashion Challenge! I was sent a $100 gift card with which to find an outfit using the latest fall trends! As you all know by now, Marshalls is one of my favorite places to shop, so I was thrilled with this opportunity.  Marshalls is your go to shop for on-trend designer items at unbelievable prices. The secret is in their buyers - they are the ultimate treasure hunters and are constantly traveling around the world to find deals on the hottest items so you'll find amazing new pieces in stores each week!

Here are the trends I was asked to choose from:
  • Color - find the hottest colors of the season, like spiced orange in a variety of accessories from totes to smoking shoes 
  • Prints - get in touch with your wild side with graphic prints from animal to Aztec 
  • Ladylike with an Edge - choose from a selection of classic feminine staples that have a modern twist, like peplum dresses and edgy tops with leather detailing
I decided to keep two major things in mind while I was shopping: burgundy (my color of choice) and prints (anything!) And finally, a few tips from me to you!
  • Take pieces into the dressing room even if it doesn't look good on the hanger, it might look good on you
  • Try different combinations with the pieces you bring, you never know what great outfits you'll find
  • Don't discriminate based on size (unless it's too small.) Oversized is in so if you like something, try it out!
  • Start in the clearance section, you never know what you'll find, then move on to your favorite sections
  • And finally, play dress up with their clothes, something you never thought of wearing might look amazing!
Enough chatter, here is a quick video I filmed while I was shopping up a storm at my local Marshalls! Check back tomorrow to see what outfit I chose.



Now the really fun part, Marshalls has offered up a $100 gift card to one of my readers!

Details:  This giveaway is open to my readers in the USA and will run until September 13th.  The winner will be announced on Twitter.

Mandatory Entry: Follow Closet Fashionista (with Google or Bloglovin) and comment with your favorite Fall trend.  Make sure to leave your email and let me know how you follow.

Extra Entries: Leave one comment for EACH additional entry. Each comment counts as an entry so if you put all your extra entries in one comment that only counts as 1 entry, so make sure to separate them...
