My personal style is unique because I am a trendsetter :)

2 Cortnee { 07.25.11 at 12:55 pm }

My personal style is pretty preppy, boat shoes, bracelet stacking, mix matching, and full of layers!

3 Kaitlin { 07.25.11 at 12:55 pm }

My personal style consists of a mixture of high end & low end pieces that are never full price and always classic and girly!

4 Whitney { 07.25.11 at 12:56 pm }

Boldly feminine – I love classics: scarves, hourglass dresses, and anything by Ralph Lauren but I have to have pops of color or something else to give me an edge.

5 Penny Pincher Fashionista { 07.25.11 at 12:56 pm }

My signature style is all about taking modern pieces & keeping them classic by adding a vintage twist!

6 Cari Steiner { 07.25.11 at 12:59 pm }

I love to dress up my boho-styled clothes by using fun accessories! (i.e., pairing dresses with fun, summery scarves; t-shirts and jeans with heels).

7 Kim Cole { 07.25.11 at 1:02 pm }

My style is a perfect mix of bohemian, classic & a tiny bit of edgey thrown in. I’ve always been artistic & ‘free-spirited’, but I try to evolve my style based on my age & career (moms can be stylish too)!

8 Jessica Gomez { 07.25.11 at 1:10 pm }

What makes my personal style unique is that like to show how I feel and I like to wear funky colors & patterns, I like to stand out!

9 Virtuousstyls { 07.25.11 at 1:47 pm }

My Style is Styl without the “E” original, Creative, Artisty,

10 Alanna D { 07.25.11 at 2:06 pm }

My style involves pieces that reflect where I’ve been, what I’ve done and the people I’ve met along the way!

11 MCJunkie { 07.25.11 at 2:09 pm }

I love black. I feel powerful wearing black. Beside black looks good with my blond hair. :) @MCJunkie

12 Izzy Dunne { 07.25.11 at 2:20 pm }

my signature look is inspired by what makes me feel confident: a mix of comfort & whimsy. accented by fun accessories & vintage jewelry. as a dancer i find myself drawn to ballerina-inspired looks: flats, buns & tulle.

13 Ronisha Vannoy { 07.25.11 at 2:31 pm }

Fashion is my passion first & for most:

My style is straight to the point, what you see is what you get chic & effortless.

14 Tiffany Elam { 07.25.11 at 3:05 pm }

No matter the trend or season, I always wear classic gold jewelry pieces & at least two eye-catching cocktail rings.

15 Becky F { 07.25.11 at 3:24 pm }

My personal style is unique because it’s primarily motivated by comfort.

16 kimmie { 07.25.11 at 3:53 pm }

Not sure what makes my style unique.. I like simple, classic pieces that can be worn season after season.

17 Jade { 07.25.11 at 4:52 pm }

I run a travel blog and have to travel a ton for work- not complaining, I love it!- but it definitely affects my style. I need cute, comfortable, go many different places pieces that are super easy to pack. I’d love to chat with Jess!

18 Kelli { 07.25.11 at 5:21 pm }

My signature style is pretty quirky. I incorporate geeky elements (like Comic book logos and nerdy fandom colors) with other classics. I love adding pops of color to otherwise neutral pieces, and I try to manage it on a college budget.

19 Amanda { 07.25.11 at 5:29 pm }

I guess my personal style is farmer chic :)

I have to juggle grad school, an organic farming internship, and attempting to look young and fresh at the same time.

20 Laura Davidson { 07.25.11 at 5:37 pm }

My personal style is unique because, as a teacher, I must be professional, but I also like to throw a romantic twist on a plain, work-appropriate outfit with unique heels, ruffly tops, bows, and belts, and I love to do it all at a good price (one of the reasons I love Shop It To Me!).

21 Gwen { 07.25.11 at 5:40 pm }

My personal style is feminine, comfortable and a little mismatched. I’m a big fan of oversize sweaters (but not in the summer!), shorts with patterned tights, costume jewelry, bold lips and feather extensions… but not all together – that would be a bit much. :)

22 Shalanda { 07.25.11 at 5:43 pm }

My signature look consists is feminine and chic. I enjoy bright colors and bold prints but always in a “classic” way.

23 Lydia Hudgens { 07.25.11 at 5:45 pm }

My personal style is a mixture of slouchy & structured looks. I’m in love with classic lines – pencil skirts, cinched waists, a line dresses as they tend to best compliment my figure. I’m a sucker for leather & lace, studs & silver & admittedly, love the 80’s & 90’s grunge. I would live in knee high boots & acid wash if I could.

24 carrie { 07.25.11 at 5:55 pm }

my personal style is a little bit bohemian, a little bit classic, and a littl bit western. i’ll wear a classic striped shift dress with cowboy boots, or tons of jewelry, a scarf, and a big old turquoise ring. i love ruffles, sundresses and anything feminine: but dressed down with leather and long chain necklaces.

great giveaway!

25 Melissa { 07.25.11 at 6:02 pm }

My style is unique because it’s so random. My closet is just so random. It ranges from classic, to funky neons, to sweet florals. I’m comfortable in a lot.

26 Chrissy { 07.25.11 at 6:06 pm }

My signature look is sort of “casual chic.” (At least, I like to think so…) I’m a student and live in my skinny jeans, but I like to pair them with a simple, feminine blouse or sweater, riding boots or elegant flats, and a couple of statement accessories — including, usually, a patterned scarf of some type. (I feel naked without one.)

27 Mary @ stylefyles { 07.25.11 at 6:08 pm }

My style’s a bit all over the place, and that’s maybe what’s unique about it. I like to transform myself based on my mood and the weather. That said, I do have a penchant for patterns, colors and almost anything sparkly or glittery. And tie dye. =)

28 Kami { 07.25.11 at 6:17 pm }

My signature look is classic… I love mixing vintage one of a kind pieces with modern looks. I love lace! My style is unique because it’s mine! :)

29 Ruby { 07.25.11 at 6:22 pm }

I love red! Maybe it’s because of my name. Everyday I incorporate something red in my outfit.

30 sherri { 07.25.11 at 6:29 pm }

My personal style is all about color and bold patterns. I am a florist and appreciate a great color scheme.

31 Farrielle { 07.25.11 at 6:32 pm }

My personal style is a combination of classic and trendy pieces. I always include one handmade piece of jewelry that will spark a random conversations, I love talking to people.

32 Jessica Testa { 07.25.11 at 6:33 pm }

My style involves timeless, well-fitting pieces with bright, colorful accessories, especially unique pieces of jewelry from traveling.

33 Catherine { 07.25.11 at 6:42 pm }

My style is classic, with a bit of 50s/early 60s vintage. I like pieces with structure and that are figure flattering. I love color. I have some preppy in me. I always strive to be classy and I think the biggest compliment is “Oh, you look so Grace Kelly!” I don’t deliberately try to be unique, but I usually feel like I’m slightly more dressed up than other people, which always makes me feel confident.

34 Valerie Michael (@Valerie411) { 07.25.11 at 7:00 pm }

My style is mostly classic (J. Crew and Land’s End Canvas mostly) with a vintage mix thrown in! It tends to change yearly but right now I love my mom’s Coach bags from the mid-90’s and paper bag shorts with a flowy shirt tucked in for summer!

35 Carrie { 07.25.11 at 7:17 pm }

I’m a teacher, so I am surrounded by knits, khaki’s and black leather flats at all times. I push the issue with cotton dresses, leggings in all colors, and funky shoes like TOMS. I call my self “——- Elementary’s Resident Hipster.” I’m not a real hipster, but I’m as close as they’re going to get at my school!

36 Katie { 07.25.11 at 7:18 pm }

My personal style is sophisticated, classic, with a splash of trendy. I like to follow the trends, but remain true to a more classic, timeless look. My signature look is a black sheath dress, wide belt, cardigan, stiletto heels, and an assortment of jewelry that is more trendy.

P.S. I’d be lost without Shop it to Me! I already followed both Shop it to Me and What I Wore on Twitter before this contest, but what an added bonus!

37 Jenn Prentice { 07.25.11 at 7:19 pm }

My signature style is definitely classic/preppy. I love a floaty, feminine cardigan, skinny jeans and the tallest heels I can find. (I’m 5 foot 1).

38 Madison { 07.25.11 at 7:25 pm }

I wear mostly black, but always paired with bold accessories, which presents an edgy but timeless look! Bring on the shoes, scarves & earrings!!

39 Kaitlin R { 07.25.11 at 7:39 pm }

My personal style is colorful and classic, with a touch of Stephanie (Michelle Pfeiffer) from Grease 2. It is unique because it is just beginning to evolve into something I love. I never took time to care about my daily outfits until I moved to New York, and now I’m inspired by all the women I see on the street and online. I also feel so much freedom to try new things because anything goes!

40 Madison { 07.25.11 at 8:07 pm }

OH and BLAZERS!

41 Lisa D { 07.25.11 at 8:08 pm }

My style is a mix of classic, artsy, and rocker. I love nothing more than jeans, a black dohlman, pearls and some heels! But usually I run around in a tank top and athletic shorts when I’m not at work. I’m the queen of putting on my PJs the second I get home from work!

42 Miranda { 07.25.11 at 8:19 pm }

Two words: stilettos and spurs. I divide my life between my job as a literature professor and my hobby as a competitive western rider. Even though I dress differently in both places, I try to bring fuse elements from both areas of my life into what I’m doing: a pencil skirt and a studded leather belt at work, or jeans and a cashmere sweater when I ride.

43 Annie { 07.25.11 at 8:34 pm }

my personal style is classic and comfy with a twist – i’m pretty low maintenance, but i love to pair unexpected items and add something exciting to an outfit

44 Bree Frank { 07.25.11 at 8:39 pm }

My signature is accessories. Specifically I am known for two things: a heart ring I wear as my own twist on the claddagh ring and owl necklaces… well, owl anything. As for clothing style, I typically go for solids to let my jewelry stand out, but I’m beginning to hunt for some creative/vintage prints. In general, I like to look put together, layered, and easy going.

45 Jennifer { 07.25.11 at 10:09 pm }

My signature style is eclectic and feminine. I love wearing dresses and am currently obsessed w/ finding dresses w/ pockets. I also believe funky accessories and bursts of color are a girl’s best friend!

46 Eva { 07.25.11 at 10:16 pm }

I would consider my style as classic chic with a modern twist. You can see me wearing a gap skinny with a Ralph Lauren blouse and S.Oliver boots. I love vintage elegance with a fresh twist.

47 Castle Fashion { 07.26.11 at 12:04 am }

I’m already registered for your site with this email: yasmeen.fahmy@gmail.com :D

And I would say that my style varies with my mood. There are certain things that are consistent throughout….I usually wear pants, I prefer wearing a dress with tights over without, and I don’t like necklaces. Those are just small things that make up the connecting thread between outfits. But overall, I love muted colors and pastels. I also love rich colors like navy blue and burgundy. And I think I’m some that puts emphasis on the neck/collarbone area more than anything else. I’m short so putting emphasis on the waist has never helped me. And putting emphasis on my legs is sort of counter-intuitive. I guess I’m a very strategic dresser :P

A look I would rock a lot would be an oversized sweater, skinny utility pants, plain pumps, and a ton of cocktail rings.

48 Patrice { 07.26.11 at 4:44 am }

I’m a vintage addict, with a particular love of 50s/early 60s silhouettes – fitted bodice, flared skirts. I love a good deal, so I mix in modern pieces found in consignment and thrift stores. I’d say my signature style is pattern mixing, as well as layers (when there’s not a monster heatwave in effect!)

49 Jessica1214 { 07.26.11 at 5:41 am }

My style is a mix of edgy, preppy and girly. I love unique pieces that not everyone else has.

50 Jennie { 07.26.11 at 5:50 am }

My personal style is a mixture of a little funky, classic and laid back. I’m unique because of my love for pops of bright colors and bold necklaces that I usually create.
