    This is a great contest for ladies who love and are savvy about fashion and styling. I already love looking at the fashion on ModCloth what an easy way to win a GC!

    I would really, really, really love to win this contest! I’ve tried searching stores for the perfect wedding dress and all the styles that I am interested in are all on ModCloth’s website! I live in Finland and have been away for 4 years from home. I want my wedding day (April 2015) to be even more special as it is also my homecoming after 4 long years. 🙂 Pick meeeeee! <3

    I tried to send mine 3 times, but when I click “Submit & Pin”, I get a “processing” message for one second, then it all disappears and I don’t get a pop-up window to confirm… Is that normal?

      maybe your pop-ups are blocked? Try to fix the pop-up window settings and it should work fine. 🙂

        Yes, you’re right, for some reason, they were blocked…!
        It’s strange because I can pin just fine from Modcloth or any other site, the pop-up window always appears without me having to authorize anything… So for the other ModLovers with the same issue, just check the icon in your address bar (at least that’s where it’s located for Chrome) and click on “authorize pop-ups from Modcloth blog”!

      same here 🙁 I just went ahead and pinned the dresses tn my own pin board directly from
      Modcloth instead of Facebook. Also, I tried to enter my own personal choices aside of the recommendations, but just could not figure out to submit them, so I gave up. I like the contest idea, I hope my entries went through anyway!

        Same thing happened to me. I am not able to leave the window after choosing what I want to pin. So, I have been trying different browsers with the same effect. Would love to enter this if you guys can fix that!

        Great sounding contest like you said but it keeps telling me to select an image to pin no matter what I do also…. I hope it worked.

    It won’t let me upload the photo either. I’ve tried 8 times.

    I suppose I’m not meant to win this.

    I know!!! My prom is this year and it’s Gatsby themed and I am dying to buy a dress from here that fits the theme 🙂
    Oh and Kristen Thoennes if you’re using AdBlock just don’t enable pop-ups for and you’re good 😀

    I’m also trying to submit and get the “processing” message for a few seconds before that disappears. I have ad-block paused, and opened a new tab and tried it there.

    I have a hard time finding dresses due to my height and would LOVE to try this out. I have four weddings to go to this summer and would love to rock them all!

    I’ve tried to do this about 10 times now. And I’m just not able to pin anything. After I get to the images, choose one, then there’s no submit button or anything to click to make sure it does anything. So then I refresh the page and it still does nothing. I tried 3 different browsers, enabled pop-ups and nothing is working. 🙁 Too bad, I’m getting married in 2 months and have gotten almost ALL of my wedding outfit from Modcloth. This would have been a nice thing to enter.
