GIVEAWAY: Pink Tartan $500 Gift Card + Tide Pods Prize Pack!

As young, budding fashionistas (on an allowance), our mother once gave us some shopping advice: “Never buy ‘dry clean only’.” This seemed like sage advice until we developed addictions to silk blouses, wool blazers, and leather trim everything – in short, everything our mother cautioned us against. Though we’ll never say never, with dry cleaning bills mounting and a few too many trips to our friendly local dry cleaner, we decided it was about time we heeded our mother’s warnings and started paying attention to those pesky ‘dry clean only’ tags.

Enter Kimberley Newport-Mimran, creative director of Pink Tartan, who has teamed up with Tide Pods to create The Washable Collection, a practical yet stylish line of must-have washable pieces that marries the unmistakeable Pink Tartan aesthetic with the ever reliable functionality of Tide. If it sounds like a machine washable dream come true, it is. We’re currently coveting the chic Tabitha midi skirt, the cute striped Vogue dress, and the not-for-the-faint-of-heart neon coral tech pencil skirt from the Spring lineup.

The Fall 2014 Washable Collection is set to debut on the World Mastercard Fashion Week runway on Wednesday, March 19th at 7pm and we can’t wait to see it – and shop it! In fact, we’ll be taking over the @Tide Twitter account and live tweeting the show, so be sure to tweet along with us – we’d love to hear your take on the latest and greatest Washable Collection.

Want in on that #washablefashion action? We’re giving away a $500 Pink Tartan gift card and Tide Pods prize pack to one very lucky reader of The Backseat Stylers! Share your washable outfits with us over Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #washablefashion and #OOTD for a chance to win. We’ll be posting all the entries on our Pinterest board, so be sure to check out all the fabulous #washablefashion. Full contest rules are below. Good luck, ladies and gents!

UPDATE:

Congratulations to our winner…@barbaraannstyleblog! And thanks to all of you who shared your #washablefashion #OOTD with us. Stay tuned for our next contest!

In fact, here’s a handy list of what we’ve been daydreaming about using that $500 towards if we were the lucky winner, to inspire you to get your entry in, stat (clockwise from top left):

1. Cynthia down parka ($1,150) – Fur-trimmed hood, contrast leather sleeves, and a cool army green colour – what more could you ask for in a parka?

2. Shanty wool biker jacket ($650) – This fierce buffalo check biker jacket was one of our favourites from the runway show. It comes in white and red, both highly covetable.

3. Samantha double-breasted coat ($675) – The peacoat is taken to the next level with contrast buttons, leather epaulets, exposed zippers on the sides, and a fiery coral colour. Hashtag want.

4. Novaki small cross-body bag ($225) – Part of Mackage’s first (and amazing) handbag collection, this small pebbled-leather cross body bag with nickel tone hardware comes in a range of to-die-for colours.

THE BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY: Roots Canada $300 Shopping Spree!

THE BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY continues! Today’s big prize? A $300 shopping spree courtesy of Roots Canada! Because us patriotic Canadians couldn’t possibly run 2 weeks’ worth of giveaways without featuring one of our favourite national brands. We grew up sporting Roots’ classic sweats, and we’re still living in them now (new ones, of course). Plus, the retailer’s wildly popular varsity jackets and instantly recognizable leather handbags have helped Roots maintain its Canadian cool status for 40 years.

So how would we spend that $300 gift card? We’re so glad you asked, because we’ve been daydreaming up a shopping list (clockwise from top left):

1. Western Riding Boot ($318) – We’ve never met a riding boot we didn’t like, and Roots’ take with its double-wrap belt and loop detailing is a definite favourite. Made in Canada from 100% Italian leather – need we say more?

2. Smythe Bomber Jacket ($988) – Roots collaborated with one of our other favourite Canadian labels, Smythe Les Vestes, on a to-die-for bomber jacket in celebration of its 40th anniversary. We’d put that $300 gift card towards this jacket in a heartbeat. Want. Now.

3. Venetian Village bag ($208) – Roots’ original leather flat bags never go out of style, and are a fashionable solution that go seamlessly from the work week to the weekend.

4. Heritage Kanga Hoody ($72) – Still highly covetable after all these years, Roots’ classic logo hoody is a must-have. We’ve been wearing ours non-stop all fall.

5. Lodge Fair Isle Mitt ($48) – We’ll fall head over heels in love with just about anything fair isle, and these adorable mitts are no exception.

6. Jackie Bag ($238) – We’ve always had a soft spot for Roots’ super cute cross-body bag. In magenta? We love it even more, obviously.

That’s our wish list – what’s on yours? Tell us for a chance to win that $300 shopping spree. Contest rules are below. Good luck and happy window-shopping!

THE BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY: Joe Fresh $500 Shopping Spree!

If you thought week 1 of THE BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY was epic with the $2,000+ in prizes up for grabs just for being a lovely reader of The Backseat Stylers, then week 2 is going to knock your stylish socks off, because we’ve got another $2,000+ in contests to reveal each day this week. That’s just how much we love you. And if you doubt that even just for one second, well, chew on this one: today’s giveaway is a $500 shopping spree at Joe Fresh. BOOM!

If you’re as obsessed with the brand’s cheap and cheerful wares as we are and can’t get enough of those chic silk blouses and perfect-fitting skinny jeans in every colour of the rainbow, then you’re head’s probably already spinning with ways you could spend that shopping spree. We know ours is, and we’re not even eligible to enter. But that doesn’t stop us from daydreaming right alongside you, so we’ve rounded up our current, ever-growing wish list just to throw you into even more of a Joe Fresh-induced tizzy (clockwise from top left):

1. Print party dress ($39) – This colourful, printed party frock is the perfect addition to your cocktail dress rotation. Joe’s got more where that came from, too.

2. Cable knit sweater ($29) – An ivory cable knit sweater is already a winter wardrobe classic, but add some cute elbow patches and it’s a definite must-have.

3. Sequin tuxedo jacket ($79) – It doesn’t get much more glam than this high-voltage sequin tuxedo jacket, which comes in two colours, black and silver. It’s destined to be a holiday season favourite for years to come.

5. Sequin cardigan ($49) – We adore this silver sequin cardigan: it’s cute and cozy with just the right amount of flash. We’d sport this over an ugly Christmas sweater any day.

6. Velvet pant ($29) – Because what could be more festive than red velvet skinnies?

7. Cheetah print silk shirt ($49) – We have a weakness for all of Joe Fresh’s novelty silk blouses, and this cheetah-print style with a ladylike ruffled placket is no exception.

8. Chain ankle boot ($129) – These boots are fierce with a capital F. They’re bound to up the cool factor on any outfit you pull together this winter. Need we say more?
