STYLED – An Instagram Styling Contest

We do love a good contest around here (even though we claim that we don’t have a competitive bone in our collective EHD bodies), and starting today we’ve got a new Instagram contest going. We want to see your best book styling skills, using your copy of STYLED, and we’ll pick our 10 favorite photos.

Here’s how it works – Grab your book, use the hashtag #styledthebook and tag (@em_henderson) in the photo, style it prominently in your environment and share it with your followers/friends. We’ll choose our 10 favorites and send them a hand-picked vintage gift. Contest ends Monday, November 10th, at 11:59pm PST. Unfortunately, this is an Instagram entry only contest. Don’t worry if you’re ahead of the styling game, photos already tagged with #styledthebook are viable entires. And yes, you can enter multiple times with different styling variations, and the more you tag your friends/spread the word the more we love you.

Here are a few examples to get your creative styling juices flowing . . .

Although I don’t have this magazine, this is a cute contest! I like styled photos to an extent. I don’t use styled photos that frequently on instagram – just because it does come across rather….well….styled lol. I do love how people take the time to style their photos though! That’s a lot of dedication on making sure you have the perfect photograph.

Have a lovely day!

It’s not a magazine, it’s Emily’s book. And you should buy it. I have already ordered it from my local bookstore and plan to pick it up in 2 weeks time. 😉

I LOVE your book! Thank you for sharing your talent. I have been a fan and stealing your ideas since Design Star. Now that I have my style diagnostic (Zen/Modern Glam), I can’t wait to do a vignette with my copy of the book.

Love the idea of the contest. If we heed your styling advice from the book, it will be a pretty tough choice for you to pick the best photo!

Sounds great! Waiting for my book to be delivered and I’m so excited to read it. Is the competition open to internationals – like Australia? x

This is so great. Your fans get a chance to show you how much we love and support what you are doing Emily and Team. I actually posted a picture of the book this week and didn’t even know about the contest. I’m so excited!
