Pin for the Win!
POSTED July 12th, 2012
Who can deny the thrill of pinning these days – whether it’s planning your next meal, DIY, ensemble or more – there’s something for everyone on Pinterest! Naturally, I was thrilled when the Mapleview Centre team announced one of the coolest contests I’ve heard of to date – the Your Passport to Fashion Contest.
So simple and yet so fun – create a board of 9 items found at stores in Mapleview Centre including 4 additional pins capturing the essence of your dream vacation. Up for grabs? Oh, only a fabulous Jetsetter Giveaway including a $1,500 travel gift certificate and a $1,000 gift card to Mapleview Centre. Does it get any better than this?
To create awareness about the contest, Mapleview sent out their fashionable ‘Jetsetters’ to local areas of interest. With outfits like these, who could say no?
I had the fabulous privilege of reviewing your boards and I must say I was definitely impressed (and may have hunted down your pins for my own board!). The creativity and styling was amazing and I was definitely inspired from the submissions. The top jetsetting destinations? Summer fun was definitely on everyone’s minds as relaxing in Fiji, surfing in Hawaii or a thrill-seeking adventure in Australia were frequent picks amongst contestants!
Whether you’re planning a fabulous getaway or a staycation this summer, here’s my recap of the essential items to capture the perfect jetsetter look based on your boards:
- The perfect summer sandal – opt for comfort but add your personal flare with gemstones, beading, studs or more. Boat shoes were also a fave amongst men and women!
- Stackable bracelets – the infamous ‘arm party’ is the easiest way to take your look from a bikini-clad day look into that boho chic style for evening.
- For the gents – bold colours are definitely in so don’t be shy to show off some hues be it your swim trunks, chinos or cuffed shorts.
- The perfect pair of sunnies – whether its aviator, oversized or a classic style, be sure to add a punch of your style to any look this summer with the perfect pair of shades.
We’ve collectively determined the Top 10 Boards, and this was not an easy task as there were so many stylish inspired vacation fashions. Check out the Top 10 Boards here!
So after much thought and deliberation, we’re thrilled to announce that Sara Olas is the lucky recipient of the $1,500 travel gift certificate and $1,000 gift card to Mapleview.
Sara’s board captured the essence of this contest from creativity to styling and left us wanting more! Congrats Sara –we can’t wait to see how you style yourself for your jet setting adventure!
Till next time everyone!!
