My Picks from the Art Contest!
The long awaited post on the Art Contest I held two months is FINALLY here! As you may remember, at the beginning of October I held a contest inviting readers to artistically interpret their favorite spring runway look. A thousand apologies for the embarassing delay--to say there were a few technical problems with the gallery would be an understatement. I know that there are four copies of some entries in there. If your entry is not in the gallery, I am very sorry, believe me that the mistake was not intentional!
Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to participate, it means so much to me! The response was tremendous and it was so much fun seeing the new submissions every day. The creativity and skill levels of the entries were mind-blowing and inspiring. Some of the interpretations were so far out--there were dolls, cakes, animals, and dresses made of paint swatches.
Needless to say choosing fifteen of the entries to show on Sea of Shoes was not a piece of cake. Please have a look at the gallery to see all of the entries, they are truly incredible.
