The holiday season, richly adorned as it so often is with a myriad of beautiful babbles, ornaments, garlands and sundry other decorations, is amongst (if not the very most) glamorous time of the year.
Even if you prefer to keep your decorations on the more subdued side for Christmas, come New Year's Eve, most of us love to surround ourselves with (or in!) bling, glitz, and sparkle. Doing so seems to almost inherently up the excitement factor and sense of optimism about the impending year, as we wait eagerly to bid farewell to the old and welcome the new with open arms.
Channelling the unmistakably gorgeous vibe of the holiday season is a photo contest that beloved online clothing seller Blue Velvet Vintage recently announced.
The Classic Glamour Photo Contest is geared at vintageistas everywhere who're in the mood to dress up in their winter holiday finest this year, for a chance to win the top prize of a $150.00 gift certificate from Blue Velvet Vintage (there are also second and third prizes of $100 and $50 gift certificates, respectively).
As this exciting contest is only open to US residents, I (Canadian gal that I am) won't be able to participate in it myself, but knowing how many of Chronically Vintage fabulous readers reside in American, I really wanted to share this exciting contest with of all you.
For more details about this festive holiday photos contest (which is open for submissions between December 19th and January 4, 2012; voting, which will take place on Facebook, is set to run until January 18th), be sure to check our Blue Vintage Velvet's Facebook page.
If any of you super stylish gals enters, be sure to let me know, as I'd absolutely love to see you sporting your favourite, endlessly chic vintage holiday wear!
