I'm really excited to be a part of H&M's 50 States of Fashion for the launch of their new online shop! Being an Alaskan, our nearest H&M store is quite a ways away, down in Seattle so I've never had access to H&M's clothing aside from a few great items of theirs that I've found in the thrift shop. (Like my pretty floral dress and the front zip faux leather skirt.) H&M has now launched their online shop so that won't be a problem now, everyone, even us fashion starved Alaskans, have access now to their clothes. I was so flattered to be approached to be the style Ambassador for Alaska seeing as there are some really amazing Alaskan blogging babes and they have be so kind and wonderful to work with. (I really cannot say enough nice things about them.) I was sent some items to style and I was shocked when I opened the box to see how accurately they had nailed my style! This maxi skirt is so soft and with gray being a pretty common color in my wardrobe, I'll get a lot of wear out of it. This blouse is fabulous, it's like they knew I'd been searching for a white button-up sleeveless blouse that was NOT see through and wrinkly. Everything looks well made and the material on both items is nice and thick, these are items that will fit right into my wardrobe and fit an empty spot. (The necklace is my favorite, it has a rough look to it and it's more my style than a bright "statement" necklace would have been.) I really have to say thank you so much to them for this huge opportunity. I haven't done anything by way of sponsorships or accepting "courtesy of" items but it really has been such a pleasure to work H&M.
H&M is also holding a contest where you can post a photo of your favorite H&M outfit, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #HMShopOnlineAK (AK for my fellow Alaskans or the abbreviation of your own state.) One person will be picked from each region (West, Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest) to win a $250 gift-card to H&M and a grand-prize winner will win $1000 gift-card to H&M and a trip for two to New York for an H&M event during Fashion Week. (That's pretty sweet!) It's been fun looking through and seeing what my fellow Alaskans are posting and I'm really excited about this contest so go on guys, enter and have fun!
