Talbots Spotlight DIY Contest and SHE Giveaway Winner!

What does Talbots mean to you? In my estimation, Talbots has always been a pillar of sophistication and class in the fashion retail community, and while they have always offered a strong, pleasing design for today’s professional woman they have recently taken a younger generation under their wing, introducing them to the idea of superior quality and style. You may remember my post early last month in which I talked about some of my favorite pieces from the Talbots Holiday Lookbook, a marvelous collection of shimmering statement jewelry and soft neutral tones. In addition to the fun new looks Talbots has also launched a blog, Red Chair Confessions. At RCC Sophie dishes on all things glam, from the red carpet to the blogosphere. Check out this post spotlighting the fabulous Amateur Couture, for example! Jen, Karen and I were brimming with excitement when Talbots contacted us to spread the word about Red Chair Confessions and, in the spirit of giving this holiday season, they have also offered each of us an accessory of our choosing! I don't think I otherwise would have known about the blog and the amazing contest Talbots has going on...

Spotted D.I.Y. is an exciting competition, and so easy to enter. All you have to do is send a snapshot or two of yourself rocking your favorite Talbots piece and answer some questions. Every month the stylista fairies at Talbots will pick their favorite entrant to spotlight. The lucky winner will receive a Talbots gift card for $250! If you've never bought anything from Talbots now is the perfect time to go shopping. While the caliber of high-quality shops like Talbots can be difficult to work into, say, a college student's budget the retailer makes it easy to hunt for deals on the clearance outlet on their site. Check out this linen gauze top for just $29.99 and this twist-front cami for $16.97! Talbots is also currently hosting their Red Hanger Sale online and in stores where you'll find deals at up to 50% off!

The Spotted D.I.Y. contest is one of the fashion blogging world's best-kept secrets; at present the entry list is modest, so everyone stands a phenomenal chance of winning. We'd love to see our readers participate. After you've entered you can also "Like" Red Chair Confessions on Facebook or follow the blog via Bloglovin' to keep up with all the fabulous postings by Sophie. Good luck, fashionistas!

I'm also excited to announce that our giveaway from Harvester Products has ended and we've selected a winner. Congratulations to Heidi of Ms. Fashionista! Heidi, if you would please send an e-mail to stylethroughhereyes@hotmail.com we'll make sure you get your beautiful Holiday Sparkle Headband as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who entered, and don't forget to check out Harvester Products on Etsy!
