The Vintage Redux Contest

I'm really excited to announce The Vintage Redux Contest. The lovely boutique Fancy French Cologne and one of my favorite blogs For Me, For You have teamed up with me to bring you this really cool contest that combines everyone's favorite things..... vintage clothes, fashion and free stuff and mixes it all up and serves it to you in a nice tall highball with a sprig of mint.

To participate in the contest, submit a photo of a garment that you find very inspiring and that you feel has stood the test of time. It can be a great shot of Francoise Hardy in a modish mini dress or something more personal from your family album. The photo should date from the 1930's to the 1980's and should contain either a dress or a blouse that will then be reworked by yours truly into an updated redesign. The winner will receive one garment and two runners up will get $50 gift certificates to shop till they drop at Fancy French Cologne. The reworked garment will also be available for purchase at over FFC....
