A Vintage-Inspired Carving!

Thanks to everyone who particapated in Pumpkin Carving for a cause! For each gorgeous gourd that was sent into our Facebook group, we are donating $5 towards the The Washington Area Humane Society. With an impressive 254 entries total, that adds up to $1270! However, we like to keep our numbers simple, so we decided to increase our donation, and round off to a clean $1500! In addition to the animal shelter donation, we also have a winner to announce! Judging on many variables ranging from creativity, inspiration, and relation to the ModCloth brand, Sara Torgerson’s pumpkin (pictured above) is the mod winner with her design that was, “Inspired by ModCloth’s vintage clothing”.

Her pretty pumpkin is creative, simple, and chic. While we had many entries relating to products on our site that were very well done, her original design relates directly to what we’re all about – vintage! Her prize pack includes a $100 Gift Certificate along with a Cat Face Mug, Cobweb Cuff, Chest-ire Cat Maxi Dress, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Book. Way to go Sara! It was a tough decision to pick a winner with so many great entries, so we decided to display honorable mentions of a few other favorites! Also, shout out to Faye Kennedy whose 36 entries equated to a donation contribution of $180!
