Lexington blogger Beth Parker of Seersucker and Saddles won the grand prize in the Shop Your Closet competition hosted by Of Wit and Will, a San Francisco-based online magazine geared toward women.
Her prize: a $1,000 shopping spree at Lexington boutiques with Of Wit and Will founder Suzy Kellems Dominik. In the above photos that’s Beth Parker at left and Kellems Dominik during their Lexington shopping trip.
Parker posts photos of herself wearing everything from J. Crew to Gucci for her blog, Seersuckerandsaddles.blogspot.com. Her prize-winning look for the contest — a striped sweater, slim-fit pants, a Kate Spade clutch and Gucci sunglasses — was a feminine take on the Burberry men’s collection for fall.
On Tuesday, Suzy Kellems Dominik, who collects couture fashion and wore her own Hermes necklace with a vintage dress she discovered in Phoenix, offered fashion tips to Parker as they shopped in stores including Street Scene and Feather Your Next antique mall.
Kellems Dominik suggested that you create your own style by using a mix of pieces. “It’s all about being original,” she said, “and wearing the clothes instead of them wearing you.”
