FASHION INTEL READER giveaway

July 22, 2009

FIREADERCONTEST

For those who have read Fashion Intel you know how much I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  I equally adore their clothing lines The Row and Elizabeth and James.  As much as I thrift and hit up my favorite boutiques, I also enjoy shopping online and being inspired by how much great fashion I can find on the web.  One of my favorite online shops is Chick Downtown and we’ve partnered up for the very first Fashion Intel giveaway!  Needless to say I am excited to see which one of you wins the amazing Elizabeth and James Grey Deconstructed Tee!

I suggest you check out some of the other designers on Chick Downtown, like my favorites Alexis Bittar, Balmain, and House of Harlow.  They’ve also got some bohemian scarves from Sir Alistair Rai.    For those of you who love twitter as much as I do, stay up-to-date with Chick Downtown’s twitter page and follow them on Facebook.  You’re following me too, right?

This week Aussenhaut and I talked a lot about our love for fashion blogs but that we felt there was something just a bit more we’d like to see on our favorite sites.  As much as I love to see everyone’s new shoes, haircuts, thrift store finds, and amazing fashion, I’d also love to hear about how these girls are giving back as their influence on readers is tremendous.  I adore browsing my favorite blogs as I look forward to seeing what these enchanting young ladies are wearing, but I am also dying to hear what they have to say.

This week MTV announced they hired Alexa Chung to host a brand new show to revive their network.  I’ve always loved her style as she manages to look both youthful and sophisticated at the same time.  Upon my research of Miss Chung, I discovered that in May 2008 she was announced as the brand ambassador for Oxfam’s ethical fashion boutique.  She also designed a condom tin for Company magazine to help “convince people to carry condoms.” [read more via wiki]  This made me love her even more!

One organization that is particularly important to me is the Downtown Women’s Center.  I have volunteered there in the past and still remain updated with all their events.  You should check it out if you live in the L.A. area or just want to educate yourself on the population of homeless people who are women.  I am currently inquiring about opportunities with Oxfam as I have a twitter friend who seems to do amazing work with them.

Tell me, what interests you?
