  1. BT Edmonton & Value Village Challenge!

    Thursday, August 15, 2013

    I was incredibly excited/nervous when an email landed in my inbox from the good folks at Breakfast Television Edmonton asking me to participate in a style challenge to mark the grand opening of Value Village in Sherwood Park (Big thanks to Marie for the name drop!).

    I loved getting a sneak peek of the new store. Sherwood Park thrift shops usually have some gems (I can't believe they had gloves!) and this Value Village is no exception. They also had some really great jewellery, shoes and accessories. I wish I had been able to spend more time browsing, but of course, we were being timed!
    I had such a blast with Sandy Joe and Lébassé - it seemed so much more like 6 gals shopping than a competition. Both of them have great style, and I really liked they outfits they came up with too.

    The segment aired today on BT, but of course I have the hookup for you good people who don't live in Edmonton to watch it. I can't embed it (urgh) but here's where you can watch part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4.

    Photo by my darling friend Funmi. I look like a monkey.
     To tell you the truth, I didn't watch it. I'm very hard on myself and I know that I would just cringe and fret over every little thing that came out of my mouth and every style choice I made (and am anyway - I am good at remember what makes me feel like crap) so I'm just putting it here for other people to "enjoy".

    Best screen grab I could find of the outfit 
    If you like my outfit, please vote for me - voters could win a $50 gift card to Value Village. Sadly, the contest is only open to residents of Alberta :( Sorry non-locals!

    If I win, I will get a $500 gift card to Value Village - can you imagine!?

    I'd also like to thank the folks at Value Village for letting me take the dress home with me! I fell in love with the gorgeous print and was heartbroken to think I'd have to leave it behind.

    2. You did so, so awesomely dear Laurie, no worries at all. This would have been such a blast! If our local Penticton VV ever runs something similar, I would be over-the-moon excited to take part.

      Fingers super firmly crossed that you win ($500 to spend at VV would be so incredible!).

      I watched the little trailer video but sadly I can't make the rest load for me. It looks like a really fun experience though!

    4. You are adorable and have honestly nothing to fear! You did a great job, the outfit that you chose is really gorgeous certainly my favourite! I have my fingers crossed for you :)
