Fashion Styling Contest Winners!

Well the time has come, I can put it off no longer. First of all, I’d like to say that you all did such an amazing job with the entries that I literally spent the whole weekend and all morning arguing with myself trying to choose the top six, let alone the top two! I even enlisted the help of several third-party viewers, all of whom came to the same decision as me: it would be impossible to decide. Each look is so unique, expressing different personalities and styles, that it is so difficult to compare. I wish I could share all of the entries, but alas, I must choose, so here you have it!

1st Place Winners:

Clarisse's Closet Style Contest

Fashion Styling Contest!

Clarisse's Closet Style Contest

Here’s your chance to show me how you like to dress! I’m holding a fashion styling contest that gives you a chance to show me your personal style, incorporating what you’ve learned from Clarisse’s Closet! Here’s how to enter:

Put together your favorite mix-and-match outfit, and take a picture of one of your dolls wearing it. The outfit must be one that you put together yourself (meaning it can’t be a complete outfit that you purchased together). You may only enter one photo of the outfit, so be sure that the whole outfit can be seen in the photo. The doll wearing the outfit must be an 18” doll, but non-AG dolls are allowed.

 There are two ways to enter:

Through email: Send your picture to clarissescloset@gmail.com

 Through Instagram: Go to my account (clarissescloset) and click on the contest photo to find out how to enter.

 You may enter twice! You are allowed to enter once through email and once through Instagram. This means you may have 2 different entries  (you don’t need to enter the same picture twice), but you may only enter once through each method. If you enter multiple photos through either email or Instagram, all of your photos will be disqualified.

 Please note: The contest will be judged based on the outfit, not the photography, but keep in mind that a nice photo with good lighting with help show off your doll’s look! We’re looking for a creative look that is stylish, but also practical (so you don’t have to go crazy trying to stand out with something too eccentric). Of course, if your doll has a funky or unique style, don’t be afraid to show it!

 Other things to keep in mind: Everything your doll is wearing is part of the outfit, so make sure you pick shoes and accessories that work together. Hair is also considered in the styling, so having it go with the look is important too. Any accessories are allowed, so feel free to use hats, purses, or backpacks, but things in the photo that are not on the doll will not be considered in choosing a winner (such as flowers or pets), though you are welcome to have them in your photo!

 There will be TWO WINNERS, and each will receive one of the one-of-a-kind wool felt hats that are pictured at the top of the page! The winners will be chosen from a pool of both email and Instagram entries. Runner-ups will also be chosen, and their photos will be posted on the blog when the winners are announced.

 The contest will close on FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21st! Your entry must be received by that date at 11:59 PM EST to be entered into the contest. The winners will be posted on both the blog and Instagram on Monday, February 24th.

 All are welcome to enter, but if you are under 18 please ask a parent’s permission before entering. The winner will be contacted through the method that they entered the winning photo. If a response is not received from the winner within 7 days, a new winner will be chosen to receive the prize.

 Good luck and happy styling!!
