    Hard to enter, when I just got the email today (Wed., Nov. 4)
    Just think you should’ve send it out earlier…

  118. Krystyna M 11/04/2015 at 4:38 pm #

    I just want to clarify. Does the winner receive $5 or $10 towards shipping? In the body of the contest description it says $5 but the rules say $10. See below:

    “The winner nabs a gift certificate for the price of the item, plus $5 towards shipping. Ready and rarin’ to go? Get all the deets below…”

    “Each winner will receive a gift certificate for the cost of the item they named, plus $10 to cover the cost of shipping. Woohoo!”

    Thank you!

    • ModNatalie 11/06/2015 at 10:03 am #

      It is $10!

    I cannot get Instagram to submit my entry… I’ve tried everything.
    Here’s my entries for the Fox dress.
    Out Fox the Holidays, All Decked out in Fox and Holly, and
    Fa la la la la in Fox Holiday

    A little sad that I didn’t even get the email with the contest notification until today. I had a cute idea for the dress, too! (and unfortunately don’t have instagram or Twitter)

    For the coat:
    Button it all out.
    Brown into town.

    This was a fun idea, but it would have been nice to have a little more time to name each item, and I have no desire to use any of the required social media outlets.
