Super Awesome Giveaway: Mademoiselle Style

For someone who writes and obsesses about fashion, I don't consider myself "Fabulous!" with a capital F and am constantly on the hunt for styling tips. Shopping has always been a somewhat haphazard endeavour; I rarely shop with an objective in mind, and many of my purchases have been languishing in the back of my closet simply because I haven't figured out a way to wear them with other pieces in my wardrobe. So when I heard that the inimitably stylish yet down to earth blogger behind Mademoiselle Robot was offering style consulting services through her new venture, Mademoiselle Style, I was excited about the prospect of getting an objective assessment. Also, I was secretly thrilled about being able to say to someone "Oh- you love this outfit? Thank you, dahling, my stylist helped me throw it together!" (I grew up in LA; I'm allowed my Hollywood daydreams!)

Mademoiselle Style now offers online consultations for those of us living outside the UK, and I haven't been able to use her services yet because I do not own a webcam. Yes, you read that correctly. The dream has been deferred... I need to get with the program soon! Argh!

But my loss, dear readers, is your gain! Dream Sequins will be giving away a Style Booster package to one lucky reader. Here's a description from the website:

"Get inspired! If you are happy with the clothes you have but need a little bit of inspiration. We will meet over a cup of tea (or on video chat if you are out of the UK) for a whirlwind introduction to the many simple ways in which you can update your current style. Learn how to do more with what you already have: the solution may already be in your wardrobe!

Style Booster summary:

- Get inspiration, a light style update.
- Just over an hour.
- No shopping necessary.

This service can take place anywhere you like, even available online!"

Rules for the Mademoiselle Style Giveaway
  • Simply leave a comment in this post about why you think you need a Style Booster along with an email address where we can reach the winner. Mademoiselle Robot will select the lucky winner based on comments in this post.
  • You have until Wednesday July 22nd at 11:59 pm NYC time to enter!
  • This contest is open to citizens of the world, but if you live outside the UK, please note that you need access to a webcam to consult with Mademoiselle Robot online.

If you haven't had a chance to check out Mademoiselle Robot, you can visit her amazing blog here. Mademoiselle Style is also offering 50% off all consultations now until the end of July, so run over there to book services for yourself or a friend! Good luck to everyone!

Oh my goodness I LOVE this giveaway! I finally graduated college after a few setbacks, but unfortunately my style has yet to "graduate" into the real world. I live in LA and work in the entertainment industry, which is honestly NOT fabulous at all when you work behind the scenes like I do! I am either in "production black" or comfortable clothes for long hours in the editing room! I love, love, love fashion and can write about it all day long, but when it comes time to implement that in my life it is a totally different story! Ok, sorry so long- just too excited for this! Heading over to Mademoiselle's site now to check it out!

:) XOXO

Brigadeiro said...

OMGosh, no way! I've been toying with the idea of an online personal styling/imaging site too (have finished the course I wrote to you about)! :) Hers looks brilliant, and very similar to what I was picturing for myself (in terms of services provided)...

Brigadeiro said...

PS. Mine would be a much humbler service though, her credentials are great! :)

janettaylor said...

She looks so hoooot! I adore vintage!

Lori Smith said...

I'd *love* a Style Booster session as I have found a style I like but am having trouble working to it all the time. Dressing up is fine, as I've found a handful of great dresses and tops which work well, but as soon as I dress more casually I end up back with my old frumpy stuff and the glamour vanishes! Mademoiselle Robot *always* looks glamorous so I'm sure she could help :-) If I win (fingers crossed!), you can email me on contactlori[at]gmail[dot]com

Ashe Mischief said...

Oh yay! I'm so glad to see the Mademoiselle doing this!

Within the last year, I've graduated, got my first professional job (slightly outside my field), and gained quite a bit of weight. As a result, I'm feeling very disconnected with myself-- while I feel I know my style, I'm having a hard time translating that with my available clothing options & my conservative work environment. Then I have such a hard time doing it when I am able to dress on the weekends!

nookie said...

damn,I don't have a webcam either...

Lucia said...

I love this giveaway! Awesome!!
I'm obsessed with fashion, but I believe there's always room for a great fashion advice from the "real" people! Can't wait to boost my fabulousness with a big big F (fingers crossed!!)

Amanda K said...

That is a awesome giveaway!

tor (fabfrocks) said...

Great giveaway! I'd really like a style booster session because i'm getting so bored of the highstreet and would love some tips from the queen of vintage on what kind of vintage styles will suit my shape!

mina said...

love the head pieces!

Couture Carrie said...

Very cool giveaway! I could use a style booster in the form of makeup tips!

Love that floral dress, btw!

xoxox,

Eyeliah SS said...

I think there are so many more derserviing people of this then me, but just had to say this is such a great giveaway!! In a few years I defintely think I will want to revamp my look for my 30s!!

dapper kid said...

Oh wow, what a fabulous contest :)

And I would definitely recommend some good quality Japanese denim. The hype is blown out of proportion with just about every store releasing a pair of high price jeans with the label of 'Japanese' denim, but the true pieces are stunning. Brands such as Edwin, Samurai or Evisu really do use a wealth of denim knowledge. The denim is hand dyed, the jeans are hand made, and are pretty much the highest quality out there! Do make sure to go for some good selvage denim, as opposed to mid roll denim.

Iva said...

this is so awesome!

Hanako66 said...

This is so awesome...I recently found her and think she is fabulous! I don't have a webcam, but you betcha I will be spreading the word!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oh, I remember reading this on IFB at one point and thinking I'd need this too. Like you, I have tons of stuff I never wear (and like you, I also would prefer someone to go shopping for me... especially a personal vintage shopper). I have a webcam but most of my clothes are in boxes in the UK, so I think I'll request her services once I'm in the country again :) Great giveaway though!

susan said...

Sheena said...

This is a great giveaway! I'd like to enter this just because I'd love how to find ways to maximize the wardrobe that I currently have and only seasonally add a few pieces here or there. I'm trying to save money, so my budget is pretty tight, so I'd love to work with someone to help me find what works best for me and my body type.

Andrea said...

I would love this because in the current economy I cannot afford to buy new clothes, but am so tired of my current wardrobe. I would love to learn how to make new outfits from what I already have!

Angel said...

I would like to win as i have a varied wardrobe and would love to learn how to mix and match it to create different looks especially with cooler weather on the way. I would need a video call but i have a webcam.

SHIRK MAGAZINE said...

I have been a M.R. reader for a while. she's as bloody cute as a button.

as of late, my whole life has been upside down. dumped by my rock star boyfriend, moving out of my childhood house, and no real career path in sight.

i actually run my own fashion/lifestyle blog, SHIRK MAGAZINE, and think that i have quite the flare for fashion and design.

but like i said, the recent turn of events, i want a fresh start in ... everything. even my personal style!

and if there's one person i would trust, it would be her.

pick me, misses!

Midtown Girl said...

damn if I only had a webcam...think its time to finally get one!! great giveway idea darling xoxo

wheretheprettythingsare said...

Oh I need you Mademoiselle Style! I'm thinking about a big career change (yes that's what happens sometime when you turn 30), had a baby about 8 months ago. Those tiny t-shirts don't work so well for me now and on top of that I'm back to being flat-chested (wasn't going to breastfeed for ever just to keep those - O so gorgeous - breasts)... So you see I totally need a bit a M.R in my life!
(and I do own a webcam, so I'm totally ready!)

BetseyJ said...

This year I've finally lost 40lbs, but for some reason I'm not feeling any inspiration from new clothing. I find myself still wearing black and I can't get out of this funk. I dont know if I've become so influenced by the ultra skinny fashion bloggers out there that I've lost my touch. It's almost like when I was overweight I had more style and spunk than I do now. I used to be the fashion queen in my family and friends, and now I feel so boring.
I can style other people, and pick out items I love for my blog but for some reason, I can't find a stitch to wear in my own personal life.
help me find inspiration again!
ok that was soooo long.

xoxox.

Aspiring Couture said...

This is great!

I would love a makeover because I havent put as much focus on that aspect as I should be!

I have been working two jobs and volunteering about 30 hours a week (yes on top of the 2 jobs!) in an effort to help those around me do better! I volunteer to help give people answers to drug problems, how to be happier and what is stopping them, etc. This keeps me fairly busy!

My new cause is now aspiring couture where I help young and new designers flourish and prosper and get started in the fashion industry. Here I am again with the helping of others. So, with all of that, I really have a limited amount of time to actually do anything for myself anymore and I am only 21!

Gabby said...

Wow, how did I miss this before? Unfortunately, no web cam here, but I am SO jealous of the winner!

Amber said...

I'd love to win - new career, newly single, new life = a need for new style! Plus I'd love to chat to Mlle Robot - she seems so cool <3
