Win $1,000 With Fabulous Florida Mommy & Polyvore!!!

YES! You did read the title of this post correctly! I was recently contacted by the wonderful team at Polyvore and asked to be one of their 5 Launch Partners to introduce the Mini Editor, a tool that brings Polyvore virtual styling to blogs and gives readers a fun, interactive way to mix and match products and create digital collages.  To *kickoff* the launch of the Mini Editor, Polyvore is holding a styling contest with a grand prize of $1,000...very fun and exciting!!! :)


Powered by Polyvore




The focus of the contest is on fall clothing, so I have pre-selected 100 fall items for my lovely readers to use to style their outfits with. Feel free to style as many sets as you would like...the more sets you style here on the Fabulous Florida Mommy blog, the more our chances are of winning together! :) Plus, I will be updating the  mini editor every day or so by swapping out a handful of the pieces, so you will have some new selections to choose from in order to continue making new sets.

Are you new to Polyvore? Never styled a set? Don't worry...it's easy! First you will need a Polyvore account, so if you haven't signed up for one you can do it here. After that come back to the Fabulous Florida Mommy Mini Editor and click on the *Create* tab at the top of the editor box. Next, scroll through the items at the bottom of the editor to choose the pieces you want to style your outfit with. Drag each item you choose into the editor box, arrange them any way you want, and when you're finished simply click the *Publish* tab at the top left corner and you're done! (You can see examples of completed sets by clicking on the *Gallery* tab, also at the top left corner of the editor box.)

Remember...the more sets you style here on my blog, the higher the chances are that we will win, so make sure to create as many looks as possible!

Here are the details from the Polyvore Team:

What Are Your Favorites for Fall?
Show Us And You Could Win $1,000!

We're so excited about our new Mini Editor tool for bloggers, we're giving away $1,000 to a blogger AND a reader! The Mini Editor is a free, easy-to-install widget that brings the Polyvore virtual styling tool to your blog and gives your readers a fun, interactive way to mix and match products and create digital collages.

Not a blogger? How will you style Fabulous Florida Mommy's top picks for fall? Create sets in her Mini Editor posts, and you could win $1,000. Each set submitted is another opportunity to win, so enter as many sets as possible!  

One blogger and one reader will win.  The criteria for selecting the best Mini Editor will be based 50% on how many sets readers submit and 50% on style and aesthetics. The winning blogger will select his or her favorite set created by a reader to also win $1,000.  The winning blog and the winning set will also be featured on the Polyvore blog!  

Remember...the more sets entered on my blog means our chances of winning the contest together are even better! Help spread the word...feel free to blog about the contest, tell your friends, and be sure to style and enter as many sets as possible. Thanks, and HAVE FUN! 

xoxo,

  17. I have no talent so I'm not playing the styling game, just wanted to say what a great giveaway! Amazing. And I love the look of the blog now, very nice.

  18. Congratulations! They picked a stylish woman to represent their launch.

    Can you delete the lame-o Poly w/the floating shorts/boots/shoes at the bottom of it? I revised it on Polyvore and titled it Meeting, but it's still showing up on here in the lame way I set it up. I didn't see the delete feature to remove items until after I'd hit publish.

  19. Wow that is SO fun! I just wasted an entire hour creating outfits! Love it!

  20. I 'designed' 7 sets (Rose80). Phew! This is hard work, but also very much fun!

    Hope your blog wins!

  21. I'm not great at Polyvoring either but made one just to contribute. (Would make more but I have a dying mouse-right clicker that barely works.)

    It would be great to see you win!

  22. Fantastic and so fun. I'm going to style an outfit that I would actually wear and one that I like but would not suit my body type..

    Congrats on being selected, you deserve it!

  23. FFM, I have posted about this contest on my blog and posted some of the sets as well.

    Hope you win!

  28. Hello Ladies! I just wanted to let you know that I switched out some of the pieces today, so there are some new selections to choose from for the sets. THANK YOU again! :)

  30. Hi Ladies! New items were just put in today, so you have some new options to style your sets. Thanks! :)

  31. Hi Ladies! I am loving all of your sets so far! So much so that I think it will be hard to choose a favorite, and for this reason I have decided that IF the Fabulous Florida Mommy mini editor wins, I am going to hold a random drawing to pick the winning reader that will receive the $1,000. Every set submitted will equal an entry in the drawing, so the more sets you create, the more your chances of winning the reader's $1,000. :) I have spoken with my contact at Polyvore, and she said this is perfectly OK. :)

    THANK YOU again for all of your sets! We are about 152 sets shy of reaching 1,000 and maxing out this mini editor, which means we can then start on a whole new one with yet ANOTHER chance at the $1,000. YAY!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You did it ladies! Mini Editor #1 is maxed out and a new post with Mini Editor #2 is now up! Remember that I will change out some of the items in the next day or two so you'll have new clothing pieces to work with for even more sets. Thank you again for all your hard work and the fabulous sets! :)
