Thanks for your input about the Celine inspiration book contest and for so many good ideas!
Luckily I picked up several books so at least 2 will be auctioned off for charity. The rest we can use for our contest winners.
Here is the first contest:
Remember when I posted those vintage photos that I bought at the flea market last January?
I think we all loved those images.
I want you to email me an old (nothing later than the 80′s) original photo that you feel conveys an inspirational sense of style. It could be from your own family archive or one that you found somewhere like a flea market, garage sale or swap meet. If it is from your family I would love to hear a little about the people in it.
Garance and I will pick a few and post them and then we will collectively name a winner.
I love this idea because it does not cost a lot of money (flea market photos are relatively cheap and family photos are free) and I love looking at great old photos! I hope to see some amazing shots from the 20′s, 30′s 50′s 70′s or whatever period inspires you.
This part is IMPORTANT please read before sending me images!
- The subject line of the email should read “Vintage Photo Contest”
- The contest will run from March 24th to March 30th
- Only 1 image per email, please EDIT
- The photos will only be posted here on the blog, so the file size can be very small (no bigger than 700kb). I DO NOT need hi-res images. It takes too long to download them.
- Writing a little something about the image you send will make your entry much more interesting for all of us.
