June sponsor: Meg Knits
It is time for another giveaway! The second I have done, and the second involving knits from Meg Knits! Last time, I gave away a lovely knit cropped top, designed by Meg Navoy, the cute FIT student behind the shop. This time this white crochet collar can be yours! It ties in the back and will look great with most outfits, giving it a little something extra.
To make things fun, here is a little bit about Meg and what inspires her:
What is your favorite fashion era?
My favorite fashion era is the 70s, because it was such an amazing time for music and culture and you can really see that through the clothing of the time. Being crafty, I love everything diy and the 70s were really big into granny squares, open crochet tops and swim suits and sewing your own clothes. The seventies fashion has a big influence on my personal style as well as my designs.
What inspired you and influences you when designing things for your shop?
I'm really inspired by the 1970s, the wonderful slouchy and chunky knits at Free People, my classmates at FIT, vintage inspired fashion bloggers such as Hannah and Landon, It Girl Rag Doll, Fancy Fine, as well as fashion designers such as Alexander Wang, Alexandra Grecco, and Sylvia Toth.
Favorite piece from your shop, and how you would wear it?
My favorite piece from my shop is probably the grunge sweater. I love the one I have for myself, it's so easy to layer and instantly adds texture to any outfit. I usually layer it over a dress or a lace bodysuit. There's so many different ways to wear it and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it.
To enter, all you have to do is check out her shop and tell me in a comment which other piece is your favorite. Meg is offering some really cute summer knits, cropped tops, striped sweaters, and my personal favorite, crochet shorts! Make sure to leave your Email in your comment so I can reach the winner! The contest ends a week fron today, July 1st (wow, july already?!) and the winner will be chosen at random and contacted through email, and posted here. Thanks and good luck!
