$1,000 contest for bloggers and readers! Today we'll hear from Meghan at WIT & Whimsy. Check out her favorite picks for fall in w&w's Mini Editor and don't forget to submit some sets for your shot at $1,000!
How would you describe your blog in one sentence?
WIT & Whimsy was created to bring city-living & loving gals together that want to talk fashion, beauty and all things women’s lifestyle.
What was your inspiration behind the items you picked for your dream wardrobe for fall?
After going to New York Fashion Week this past February and seeing the Fall collections of so many great designers, I was so inspired by the shows I saw for this Fall wardrobe I pulled for the contest. I pulled pieces that I saw in the shows of designers like Haute Hippie and Cynthia Steffe.
What are your favorite trends for fall?
I am all about embracing texture this Fall and suede and leather are going to be big. I saw lots of big knits and feminine details like sequins grace the runways and love that they create a hybrid of the cozy look of Fall sweaters with chic elements that keep your outfit from being boring & drab (like the weather can sometimes make us feel in the Fall). Neutrals are also a trend I'm loving because my wardrobe is often made up of khakis, blacks and greys. Here's more on the Fall 2010 trends to watch.
If you win the $1,000 prize, what will you use it for?
I'd use a portion of it to supplement my Fall wardrobe and get some of the pieces I saw on the runways back in February and put those pieces to good use in my outfit posts, which is a newer endeavor for me on WIT & Whimsy. The other portion I'll be a savvy gal and put it into savings. Not as much fun as shopping, but definitely worth it :) More so than winning the prize though, I'm loving seeing everyone's sets and would be most happy to have a w&w reader win for their creativity and fashion sense!
What are you looking for in reader-submitted sets? What should your readers keep in mind to win $1,000 if you are the winner?
Sets should really evoke an entire look and say something about the person who put it together. I want to see that thought was put into creating a Fall wardrobe from the pieces I selected and is something that is both wearable for the Fall and also has fun with what Fall is all about: cozy, chic and evoke a sense of whimsy (naturally!) from playing with various textures and trends.
And here's one of her favorite reader-submitted sets!
