Announcement by: Erin
April and I had such a blast with all the women who participated in the "Style By... The Hive Challenge" (I can't wait to play "Nigel Barker" again at our next contest, I found my second calling snapping photos and directing the models :) All the outfits created were not only fabulous, but affordable. At under $150 total, almost all the outfits included a head to toe look...including jewelry, shoes and belts in addition to the clothing.

So without further ado, proudly announces:
"Style By...The Hive Challenge" Winner
Julie Barrios!

Pin Stripe Skirt... $48
Floral Blouse... $42
Beaded Necklace... $26
An adorable outfit versatile for work, a date
or casual day boutiquing...PRICELESS!

Julie did a wonderful job of combining color, texture, pattern and shine. Although she probably doesn't know it, Clinton Kelly from "What Not To Wear" shared this important fashion tip with us two weeks ago at the Make Over America Fashion Show. Clinton said it and you said it by voting, Julie deserves the crown and title "Style By...QUEEN"! Hey Julie, have fun increasing your clothing kingdom with a $150 shopping spree compliments of The Hive (don't forget to show us what you got ;)

A special thanks to The Hive and owner Natasha for letting us come in an play dress up with their amazing merchandise. From eye catching visuals, to exceptional customer service, we applaud The Hive for delivering a warm and inviting boutiquing experience. We love your constant creativity and always affordable fashion. Also a big thank you to all our readers who voted, we value and appreciate your comments! XOXO
