Announcing the Chic in a Snapshot Contest on Instagram!

We know our fans have the most fabulous fashion sense around, and we want to see it! That’s why we’re holding the Chic in a Snapshot Contest on Instagram! All you need to do to enter is take a head-to-toe photo of your chicest look, then post it to Instagram with the hashtag #fashionforall by 11:59 p.m. PT on 9/14/2012. If you like, you may also include up to two detail shots.

Need a little outfit photo advice? No problem! Below, three guest bloggers – @skunkboycreatures, @flashesofstyle, and @thedaintysquid – provide tips on how to style and capture your look perfectly. Then, at the contest’s end, they’ll each select a fave to win a $100 ModCloth gift certificate!

Have fun putting together your most excellent ensemble, and good luck!

    Since I don’t have a cellphone, would it be ok for my husband to post it? : )

    Must we use all or mostly all ModCloth items? Or can the outfit be by another designer(s)?

      Hi, Jessica!

      We’re sorry about that! Perhaps you can keep an eye on our Facebook page for more fun contests in the future? It’s a more accessible option for folks who do not have smart phones:

    This might be a no brainer, but are we allowed to only upload/hashtag 1 photo for them to choose from, or may we do as many as we want?

      Hi, Lindsey!

      This is actually an Instagram contest for smartphones, so you must post an image on that platform to enter, but we do host contests on Facebook and Twitter quite often, as well. Sorry for the bummer this time. Please do keep an eye on our other platforms for more fun contests to come!
