Contest time! The Eye Candy: Store Inspiration Contest


Note: Don't forget to submit your outfit for this week's Reader Outfits post!!

Thanks to a brilliant community suggestion, I'm delighted to announce the Eye Candy: Store Inspiration contest!! For years I've been running a weekly post showcasing the outfits Anthropologie's staff creates in each store as a point of inspiration. It's fun sharing what the NYC dress forms are wearing, but I want to know what outfits Anthros around the country are creating! All community members are invited to head out to their local Anthropologie store, snap some photos of what the dress forms are showcasing and send them in to EA for publication!

Here's how the contest will work: community members can submit up to 5 store photos per month for the weekly store inspiration posts. On the last Friday of each month the community will vote on their favorite photo. The winner will receive a $100 Anthropologie gift certificate!

Photos should be submitted to me via the EA contest inbox. The photos can be of store displays, dress forms or window decorations. If you can identify any products in the photos when you email them to me that would be super helpful! I reserve the right to not publish photos that are blurry, duplicates, or against the intent of this contest.

The not-so fine print: You are entering to win one (1) $100 Anthropologie gift card. All photos submitted for this contest become the property of Effortless Anthropologie. This contest is not sponsored by, endorsed by or affiliated with Anthropologie or Urban Outfitters. This contest is void where prohibited. This prize is not transferable. This prize may not be exchanged for cash. Once contacted, the winner has 72 hours to claim the prize. International entrants welcome! Anthropologie employees welcome! Prizes are in USD (US dollars).

We'll kick off this contest next Friday. The regular Eye Candy post will run tomorrow. So send in your photos and let's showcase some great store outfits from around the country!!
