First, I'm not sure what I did to deserve this awful cold but it has literally knocked me off of my feet for the past week. :-( I was hoping that I would at least be feeling better by now so that I could update you all but unfortunately my body has had enough. No, literally, I tried getting out of bed Sunday morning to do a photoshoot and my body said "Girl, are you crazy? Get back in bed and go to sleep" This is the worst!
On the bright side, I have some fun news for you all...it's #Shoefie time! By now, you should know that as obsessed as I am with giving back to the community, I am equally ecstatic about a great #shoefie. So I was very excited to hear about this #shoefie for a cause campaign!
For the 5th year in a row, Nine West joins forces with Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. During the week of October 15 – October 21, with each purchase in-store at retail, outlet or online of $125 or more, Nine West will donate $25 to FTBC. As a thank you to customers for their purchase and donation, they will receive a Nine West/FTBC branded pouch. Additionally, the brand will be accepting donations during the entire month of October in support of breast cancer awareness. Exclusive this year, Nine West has designed a limited edition Nine West/FTBC pump that will be available in NYC retail stores only and on Ninewest.com. Lastly, in an effort to engage the community, Nine West has created a social media campaign tied to the cause. For every photo upload made by a celebrity, blogger, editor or customer wearing a blue shoe using hashtag #9WFTBC and tagging @NineWest during the month of October, the brand will make a donation to FTBC.
Now, here is where we all make this #shoefie campaign the best that it can be. During the month of October, I'm challenging you all to post as many pictures as you can of you wearing a blue shoe. Blue pump, blue sandal, blue boot - I don't care as long as it's blue! At the end of the month, I will gather up all of the entries and I will choose 2 winners to win a $25 giftcard to DSW - Designer Shoe Warehouse. That's it!
Not only will you be participating in one of the most fashionable social media campaigns ever (obsessed with shoes, hello), you'll have a chance to win a free giftcard just for doing your part to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer.
Here's how to enter: 1. Take a picture of you in a blue shoe. 2. Tag @Ninewest & @candycoatedclosets and use #9WFTBC and #FTBCxCCC in order to enter. Please make sure you follow this rule exactly and use the appropriate hashtags (make sure they are spelled correctly). 3. Tag a friend on your picture/s and spread the awareness.
You can enter as many times as you like until the end of the month. Again, just make sure you tag @Ninewest & @candycoatedclosets and use the appropriate hashtags #9WFTBC and #FTBCxCCC. That's the only way you can enter my giveaway to be one of the winners at the end of the month. This contest will end on November 1, 2014 at 2:59 EST.
Here's is a screenshot of me posting so you can get an idea of how to enter!
