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 . . .
