Random Wednesday #26 - I Need Your Help

 GET THE LOOK HERE:
Jacket: JCP (exact) (option) | Top: Forever 21 (exact) | Pants: Old Navy (option) (option)
 Shoes: Target (option) | Bag: (option) | Necklace: Luxe Craving (exact)

You might be wondering why I said that I needed your help in my title. I will get to that in just a sec because it's HUGE for me. Like the biggest thing that has come along in my little blogging career.

But first, remember how I said I was looking for an affordable black and white blazer and that if you found one to let me know. Well, folks, I found one and wasn't even actually looking. I went into JcPenney's to check out their new Joe Fresh line (which I am not impressed with by the way) and came across this striped beaut. I had a $10 off coupon that randomly came in the mail. Score! I got this blazer for a whopping $15 after my discount.

It's perfect for the changing seasons, super light weight, has cropped sleeves, doesn't wrinkle and was less than $20. Go ahead and give me a virtual fist pump right now.

Annnnnnd now for the BIG news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man, I am nervous about even typing this!

WALLIS contacted me to see if I would be interested in participating in a style competition to become the blogging ambassador for their company. Whaaaaaa? Me? Nooooo! Yessssss!

This is ginormously huge...like an all expense paid trip to LONDON huge!

There are twenty-eight bloggers total which means my odds aren't too shabby. 

They are on the hunt for their first official US Blogger Ambassador to help promote and educate consumers on the WALLIS brand as it launches into the US market. If crowned as the chosen one, not only will I jet set off to London, but will be the face of Wallisfashion.com, have the opportunity to attend US press events as well as other blogging functions related to WALLIS.

I know, crazy, right? I mean, I am not setting my hopes too high. Do I think I will really win? Nope. Do I hope and dream I will. Hell yes!!! It's all I want to do. It's what I love. It's my passion.

I am just grateful beyond words to be included and have the chance to even be considered for such an honor.

Next week I will be posting a piece I styled from WALLIS and telling everyone in America why they should pick me (wink-wink). So stay tuned.

In the meantime, I am BEGGING, PLEADING and BATTING MY EYES that you will go to the WALLIS Facebook page TODAY, click on their header and vote for me!! You can do this once per day until April 9th. Don't worry if you forget, I will be reminding all of you on a daily basis!

Heck, if you want to tweet it, share it or even blog about it I might slip you a Benjamin. Just sayin'!

Rock the vote, people!

Thank you!!!!!!!
