Style Me Pretty Fame! {"I Wish" Wednesday Postponed for Obvious Self-Promotion!}

OK, so I submitted two inspiration boards to Style Me Pretty for their latest contest. The prize is $250 towards a Crate & Barrel purchase (yes, please!).

Today they featured one of my boards! I don't know if that means I'm a finalist or what, but how freakin' cool is that!?! Go check it out!

I will give you a little nugget of information: one of the items on that board has to do with the upcoming give-away! Get psyched! :)

Here's the board that's up. I've called it Minted Retro. I'll save the other one until after the contest is over!

  1. Louise I love your inspiration board - thanks for dropping by! I'm excited to start following your blog :)

  2. I love the inspiration board that you put together!! :) I'd definitely pick you as a finalist for sure. You wouldn't happen to want to put together one of those little beauties for my upcoming wedding, would ya?! haha. Just kidding. But seriously, I need to get bitten by the wedding planning bug and pronto! (Which is precisely why I read your blog on a daily basis -- for some much needed inspiration!)

  3. Louise,

    Thanks for visiting my blog -- sounds like we have a lot in common. Weddings and Type A women in love with Type B men :)

    I am loving on your blog and can't wait to keep visiting. Tell me a secret: where did you find all the fab pictures for your inspiration board?


  4. I love the board. Awesome job!

    Dependent on if it looks OK with the venue we choose, our wedding colors are red and turquoise. I'm in love with the red flowers in the tiffany blue vase.

  5. Featured on Style Me Pretty? You're like thisclose to becoming Oprah famous. How cool.

    And your inspiration board is absolutely lovely!

  6. I lurved your board. That shade of green speaks to me on a whole different level. J Crew has a lot of it right now and I can't get enough!

  7. First of all, great board!

    My Inspiration Board contests are cool, but $250 is NICE!!! Good luck!
