We’ve just concluded our second-ever Pinterest contest, and we have to say, these were some pretty impressive submissions! Narrowing our options down was tough, but we finally managed to select six winners who really conveyed the “Back-to-School” theme, while showcasing our favorite accessories: socks!
Our first place winner and recipient of a $75 gift card was Jessica G., who captured our hearts with this vintage-inspired look in shades of tan and red. Featuring red Color Tights and the scrumptiously soft Leola Merino Bouclé Anklets, Jessica payed great attention to detail, and we love the way she explains every element of the outfit in captions.
Our second place winner, Sharon Rose, also went with a vintage vibe, though instead of the clean lines and pert tweedy patterns that Jessica chose, she went with a softer, more feminine look, featuring an abundance of foxes, including the Fox Slipper Socks from Foot Traffic. We love the freshness of her mint and rust color scheme, and her selection of literature for her first day back to school.
We’ve got to give it up for our first honorable mention, submitted by Jill. We can see that she clearly built the entire outfit around a pair of Abstract Rhythms Midcalves, and continued the themes of color blocking and crayon colors from there. This outfit just screams, “art kid” (and actually came with kind of an artist’s statement, appropriately enough), and we really can’t argue with that.
Ginie’s outfit board also earned an honorable mention. Featuring subtle makeup, neutral tones, and lots of classic pearls, this look really draws your attention to the Harvest Rainbow Thigh Highs, and you know we love a good sock-centric style! To keep the stockings up, Ginie chose a pair of Extra Long Sock Garters with Suspender Clips in olive — so stylish and practical!
Rachel, another winner of an honorable mention, came through with this outfit that we think is perfectly suited to a witch’s first day back at school. The bracelet referencing Harry Potter ties in nicely with the feather nails and tree branch patterned bag, which remind us of Harry’s faithful snowy owl, Hedwig. The amethyst ring, cloak and scarf featuring a map of Tolkien’s Middle Earth just seal the deal. Of course an aspiring sorcerer needs good legwear staples, and we think the combination of Perfect Pair Tights and 4 Button Ribbed Leg Warmers from Foot Traffic are ideal for a magical, scholarly environment.
Theresa’s submission really brightened our day, drawing from a hodgepodge of delightfully geeky influences, from school supplies (captured well by the Ashi Dashi Notebook Paper Knee Highs) to scifi and fantasy references, including Sorcerer Sleeves. And how cute would that red petticoat be with the R2D2 dress? SO cute! Theresa definitely earned herself an honorable mention with this look.
Thanks so much to everybody who submitted! It’s been incredibly fun looking at what you all came up with, and we can’t wait for our next contest!
Best of all, we had three varieties of Dream Stockings that rock like no others.
