The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
When does the fashion student become the master? Now! We are hosting a contest on our Style Gallery honoring the July vintage collection, Textbook Style. The vintage vibe of your look could win a $100 gift certificate.
Entering is a cinch. Browse the goodies in our Textbook Style collection, create a look inspired by one special piece, snap a photo of your ensemble, and upload it to the Style Gallery. When uploading your shot, you must tag the vintage item that caught your eye as ‘similar’, so we know it’s a submission to our Textbook Style Contest. You can always search and select the ModCloth pieces ‘pictured’ in or ‘similar’ to those in your outfit pic, but tagging an item from our Textbook Style collection turns your pic into an contest entry.
We’ll consider Style Gallery entries until 11:59 p.m. PT on 7/3. A $100 GC will be awarded to the winner chosen by Sari, our Vintage Buyer, and a $25 GC will go to two runners-up. Talk about a lesson ‘earned’!
But before you get started, study up on these deets:
UPDATE (7/9/2013) – Pencils down, everyone! Let’s hear it for all the outfit pics inspired by this vintage collection. Check out Anna’s winning shot, and the runner-up ensembles by Jordan and Megan.
I’m confused–Do we have to purchase a piece from the collection to use in our ensemble?
Niki! Thanks for your comment. No worries — no purchase necessary! Just let a piece from the collection inspire your look, and then tag it as ‘similar’ in your Style Gallery upload!
Nikki, I think you just have to pick and tag an item, let’s say is the platt skirt and then put together an outfit with your clothes inspired by one of the pieces on this vintage collection. It does sound confusing!
I don’t get it? How do you “pick and tag an item”? Do you make a wishlist? I also don’t understand how you tag items on modcloth. Please give more in-depth instructions on how this works!
Hey Kelly! When you upload your picture there is a search bar. You just look up textbook style and click on the items that inspired your look to tag them. You will see them pop into a little window next to your picture- slide the little bar from “pictured” to “similar”. Hope that helps!
Kelly, sorry for any confusion! When you’re uploading a pic to the Style Gallery, you can tag the ModCloth items appearing in or inspiring your look. If you tag an item from the Textbook Style Collection, then your upload will count as an entry to the contest! 🙂
Thank you for your help! I’ve already submitted two different outfits 🙂
Can we combine the textbook style clothes with other items from the ModCloth website or does it have to all be from the textbook style selection? I was going to use a regular pair of shoes and leggings on your website with the rest from the “textbook style” selections.
Kelly — We enjoyed seeing all the entries to this contest! Some people tagged one piece from the Textbook Style Collection, while others tagged several items from it. Either way, the uploads were a hit!
For a picture of the whole outfit do we take a picture of ourselves wearing it?
Courtney, Yes! Our Style Gallery is full of amazing looks styled and worn by our community! Have fun sharing your outfit pics.
So we do have to buy one of these pieces and take a picture of ourselves wearing it? How is that possible if the contest ends tonight at midnight?
Kelly — Sorry for any confusion. No purchase necessary. We just wanted to see you use your wardrobe to style a look inspired by the collection. Thanks!
Are you going to announce the winners soon?? 🙂
The winners have been announced in the update to this blog post. Check out all the deets above!
Fingers and toes crossed!
Where on the site were the winners announced yesterday? I can’t find it. Is it somewhere in the style gallery?
Thanks for your comment. You’ll see all the winner and runners-up announced above!
