Express Your Inner Pin Up!
As you may know, this year, the fall Bing Crosby Season Opening Day is being held on Veterans Day, November 11th, 2016. In honor of our Veterans and our amazing country, we invite all fashion-minded guests to participate in the Stars & Stripes Fashion Contest! As sponsors of the Opening Day Fashion Contest, we at Studio Savvy have the lowdown on what our amazing judges will be looking for when choosing the winners, and we want to share our insider knowledge to help all you fashionistas show up in style!
We want to see your interpretation of Stars and Stripes, Red, White and Blue, camo, and/or freedom – with a pin up flare, if you dare! This is a creative opportunity to put your spin on our country’s history, while letting your evil twin strut her stuff in some pin up sass. Come be festive, and don’t hold back. Use what you already have, pull out your 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc. decorations, you can even use an American flag and run with it! Still, need some inspiration to put together your perfect Freedom Fit? Check out a sneak peak of some of the fashion our Savvy models will be rockin’ the day of and also find a source list to help you fashionistas find the perfect place(s) to find what you need:
