Show off your Maine style and enter to win a $1,000 gift card

H&M has launched their online shop and in order to celebrate properly, they’ve launched 50 States of Fashion where they are asking fashionable folk from every state to show the world how they wear H&M.  We need to represent MAINE in this whole national fashion contest. Before you can be a finalist to win a $1,000 gift card and a trip to New York Fashion Week – you must become a finalist!

Like my skirt? You can buy a similar one here. You can also buy this amah-zing jean jacket with faux leather sleeves. And these amazing leather boots. Oh and this adorable dress. So many options. SO many options.

Here’s what you need to do:

– Upload a photo of yourself in some H&M garb on Instagram using the hashtag #HMShopOnlineME for a chance to win a $250 H&M gift card as a finalist or the grand prize of a trip to NYC and shopping spree of $1,000 to H&M!

– Visit the microsite and browse the gallery of entries, “like” your favorite looks. I know I’ll be voting for you all! A ton! Official rules are right here. And please browse the wonderful entries in Maine and like them all. Such fashionable folk here in the Pine Tree State!

CONTEST ENTRIES END ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, on August 21. At that point an expert panel of style blogger judges, each representing one of the five US regions, Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest and West, will select a winner from their region. Let’s win this thing!
