With the enormous success of this year’s Fashion Issue and GT’s first ever Win It and Wear It Contest, the writers of Obsessive Beauty have decided to launch a weekly fashion giveaway. You can score free fashionable items that were featured in the Fashion Issue. The prizes for this week’s first contest include a ring by August Mae Designs and a pair of luxurious lace panties from Manu.
Both designs were featured in this year’s Fashion Issue. The vintage/romantic cocktail rings of August Mae Designs are making a huge splash at local retailer Stripe, with fashionistas flocking into the store in hopes of finding a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry from designers Jan Reehm and Sarah York. Likewise, Manu lingerie, created by Manuka Sanyal, has a large following with her high-end pajamas, underwear, and more items, sold online and at Cameron Marks. Actress Olivia Wilde of the television show, House, is a fan of the lingerie line.
Here’s how the contest works: Leave a comment here on this blog and tell us about something in fashion that you’re obsessed with. The contest begins Aug. 18 and ends on Tuesday, Aug. 24. Winners are announced at the Obsessive Beauty blog on Wednesday, Aug. 25.
