My Dearest Readers,
I try to refrain from posting unless I have something particularly useful or encouraging to share. I know your time is valuable, and I don’t want to waste it by sharing purposeless content (ain’t nobody got time for that!). But I’m hoping you’ll make one allowance for me as I ask for your help. I, along with 24 other beautiful women, was chosen as a Top 25 finalist for the Redbook Real Women Style Awards Contest. It’s already such an honor to be chosen as a “Real Women with Style” by Redbook, but the prizes are really special:
After the pool is narrowed to 25 finalists, a panel of judges (including Fashion Police co-host Brad Goreski, makeup artist Mally Roncal, stylist Louise Roe, designer Jodi Arnold and blogger Gabi Fresh) will select five winners, while readers will choose a sixth via online voting. All six winners will appear on Redbook’s September cover as well as in an editorial spread within the issue.”
Oh, and some of those winners will be flown to NY to shoot the spread.
Rather than beg for you to vote for me, let me tell you why I really want to win:
1) I’d treasure the opportunity to share my faith and appreciation for the beauty of modest dress in a national publication. Simply put, I’d LOVE to represent all the beautiful, faithful modest fashionistas out there because we are real women too.
2) I’d love to be able to win a trip to visit NY and see my friends and church family. It has been 8 months since I moved to LA from NY, and my current budget simply does not allow for multiple visits to a city that still has a chunk of my heart.
3) Yes, it would be SO awesome to spear on the cover or even within the pages of a respected publication like Redbook magazine, but the aforementioned reasons are greater motivations.
So please, if you have 30 seconds to spare today (and every day up until May 22nd), please consider voting for me, Elizabeth Roy, here —> http://bit.ly/voteforliz. I would be so incredibly grateful.
You’ll know your vote went through when you see this image:
As a thank you for suffering through this post, I’m sharing an awesome opportunity to win a beautiful Chloe & Isabel necklace and matching earrings. Major thanks to the following blogger buddies for sponsoring this lovely giveaway:
With love and hugs,
P.s. I promise this will be the last shameless “Vote for me!” post you’ll see for this contest. I dislike them as much as you do. I know if it’s God’s will this will happen, so I won’t bug you to vote for me every single day. 🙂
