Piperlime's Stylist Contest

I just entered a contest where aspiring stylists are called to showcase their fashion expertise using Piperlime's must-have styles for spring. Their task at hand... to play stylist to a "client" for three scenarios: a 10-year high school reunion, office-to-evening for a high-powered executive, and a best friend's wedding. Contestants will then explain how and why each look was put together.

Above, is for challenge #1 - a 10 year high school reunion. My description...

"Her days of being average are over. My client is dressed to impress by showing off her sexy figure, sophisticated style and success in this world by wearing a skirt that showcases her legs, shoes that give her height and an edge, a glamorous cocktail ring and diamond earrings to show off her status, a feminine blouse in pale pink to keep up with the trends and statement necklace that says, "Look at me."

Items in this set:

Challenge 2: Office to date night... "My client is ready for her big meeting with the VP. She looks professional with her shirt tucked in, a nice gray jacket, flats that keep her comfortable and yet say that she's energetic, minimal jewelry and bag that her laptop can fit into.

With a quick change into her favorite jeans that make her caboose look aMAZing, my client is ready to meet up for a summer date night wearing flats to avoid any awkwardness in height, a colorful tank that shows off her amazing arms and tan, simple jewels to avoid sending any message that she's high maintenance and a feminine bag."

Challenge 3: Friend's wedding "My client is ready to cheer on her friend at an indoor | outdoor wedding in the spring. Nude heels elongate her legs, a feminine, retro style dress is eye-catching but subtle, her jewelry simple, a classic jacket to wear when it gets chilly and an evening bag that is perfect for a little camera and lip gloss."


plvoxfordheelDo you own a pair of booties yet or are you waiting for this trend to die? I don't own any, but this trend has definitely grown on me. Here are some that I thought were pretty cute and on sale. Now is the time to buy booties because summer is on it's way and winter shoes are on sale big time. This trend isn't going away anytime soon, so you may want to consider hunting for some cute ones!
