Jane By Design Style Challenge #3

Moving on to round 3 of the Jane By Design Style Challenge, I was asked to choose a purse from my closest that best represents the very essence of who I am. I went with this versatile Marc Jacobs bag, I purchased last fall. It can transform from a casual “bucket bag” to a professional “tote” with a mere loosening of the drawstring closure. Besides all that, it’s HUGE. Perfect for packing around all my essentials.

I believe this metamorphosing handbag mirrors me and my versatility like no other. My mood and style are ever changing along with what I do each day. I can go from being a treading blogger sipping on lattes at the coffee house, to the professional Art Director at the office. It’s the perfect handbag to represent me and my lifestyle.

Do you have a handbag that embodies you? I’d love to see your purses and as always so would Jane By Design. Post a picture of your purse on the Jane By Design Facebook page here. (Make sure to tell them One of Each sent you) Doing that will actually help me out in the competition immensely, and it will also give YOU a chance to be featured on the ABC Family’s – Jane by Design website as a trendsetter! That’s right people, if One of Each wins, one of my deserving readers wins too! I hope you can help! <3

Last week One of Each Blog was asked to participate in this rad style challenge put on by ABC Family for their upcoming show Jane By Design. (Premiering on Jan 3rd 9/8c.) I don’t know if you guys have heard of this show yet, but basically it’s about this teenage girl, who gets mistaken for an adult and lands a job at Donovan Decker. Donovan Decker, being this hip fashion house in the big city. Which brings me back to the style challenge. Basically the challenge involves me applying to work at Donovan Decker, by doing 7 crazy fashion related task over the next 3 weeks. Hoping to impress the high powered executive Gray Murray, who is also Jane’s boss.
If I win all 7 style challenges aka get the job, my blog could be mentioned on an episode of the show and also featured on the ABC Family’s website. So I’m really gonna need your help in the following weeks…in it to win it baby!

Now let’s back track a few days. I receive this huge trunk in the mail filled with the most random items. A dress forum, an ugly Christmas vest, a bag of pretzels, and a bunch of other items all adorned with these little numbered tags. Not to mention, a letter from Gray Murray herself, instructing me to wait for an email to start my first challenge. Which my inbox recently received.

What is my first challenge you ask? Great question! One of the items in the trunk was a $50 credit card. I am to go out on a fashion hunt, and come back to report my findings via a haul video. I need to get really creative to impress, so wish me luck. Also if you guys have any haul videos, ABC Family wants to see them. Head over to the Jane By Design Facekbook page HERE and upload your haul videos. (Which before today I didn’t know what exactly a haul video was. Thank goodness for Google!)

Anyways I hope you guys can help a sister out with the haul videos, and stay tuned for mine. I have a few ideas of where to get my shop on already! 😉
