The MANGO Fashion Bloggers Contest
I’m currently taking part in a competition hosted by Mango, where bloggers are to create a Mango outfit according to the theme – the seventies. This competition is a mini version of what Mango will be hosting on a worldwide platform on whatshouldiwearbymango.com.
I started with coming up with keywords that collided with the seventies: disco (who can forget the leotards, mini-skirts and John Travolta’s Saturday Night Fever?!), high-waist bottoms, plaids, fringes, maxis, peasant clothing, floral prints, clogs, wavy long hair (yes the sixties hippies continued to dominate fashion through to the seventies), and the list goes on.
I ended up conjuring this outfit…
The prize of the competition will be a 750SGD Mango voucher for the winning blogger, 250SGD and 150SGD Mango vouchers respectively for the second and third runner-ups. And not forgetting the readers... a lucky voter gets to win a 250SGD Mango voucher!
I’d greatly appreciate that if you guys love the outfit I’ve conjured up, please do vote for me here! (: Who knows, you might just walk away with a 250SGD Mango voucher! Imagine how many beautiful pieces of Mango clothing you’ll get to buy. Especially the latest Fall/Winter 2010 collection! Currently hyperventilating now…
As Richard Linklater’s 1993 movie Dazed and Confused (set in 1976) pointed out, “the Fifties were boring, the Sixties rocked, the Seventies—oh my God—they obviously suck, right?” I beg to differ! Just take a look at Mango’s seventies-inspired Fall/Winter 2010 collection.
Check out the use of fabrics and the layering worthy for the hippies. Mango readapted the seventies style and incorporated a modern take into their outfits. With a little bit of twisting and turning, the seventies really weren’t that bad after all. There’s even a hint of disco on the black sheer sequin blouse and dress! Like what you see? I certainly did! I logged on to whatshouldiwearbymango.com and started playing around with mixing and matching the garments. Remember how we girls used to love dressing our Barbie dolls up? With technology means we can play dress up virtually now, no matter the age!
My mum used to shop at Mango. A lot. But before, as a kid, I remember tagging along aimlessly and desperately hoping and praying that she’d grant me my one and only wish of going to the land of paradise – the toy department. Who’d have known that it’s my turn to be a Mango fan? And mind you, my stylish mother still shops at Mango. Well, I’m sure that ten years down the road, my baby girl will be wishing the same thing I did when I was a kid. And then the cycle repeats…
