Hi everyone! I’ve decided to host another contest on the blog.  If you were apart of my first contest or viewed it then you probably know what I am going to ask of you.  If you have no clue what I’m talking about then check out my scarf contest I hosted last year.

This new contest is dedicated to the blog and it’s one year anniversary. There will be lots of fun stuff ahead! I’ll do my best to keep you posted.

Here are the rules: (Think Polished)

1. Submit a photo of yourself in your best Polished outfit, look or pose. Be as creative as you want and please have fun, it’s why I do this.

I will be taking entries of photos until February 5th, which is next Friday.  Once I have everyone’s photo that wants to participate then I will post everyone’s photo on the blog.  Then I will have my readers, your readers and anyone else who stops by that day vote on who they think has the most Polished Sense of Style.

Please reply with a comment if you are interested in entering. I will email you so you can reply with a fabulous photo of yourself.

I will also be posting the PRIZE later this week so you girls can see what you’ll win.

Thanks lovelies !

I just wanted to write and say thank you all so very much who donated $2 to the Haiti relief. I will be shipping out all the earrings tomorrow, Thursday! Please come back and comment when you receive them! If any of you want to send me pictures of them on, please do! I’ll post them here on Polished Sense.

Live somewhere warm or going somewhere warm? Check out the Zabby by Matiko!

A look I created for the zabby.  Take a pair of denim leggings, I chose a pair with zipper detailing by the ankle.  A fun print top, the one shown is from Target.  A pair of gold hoop earrings and for a pop of color and orange clutch.

Who’s ready for warm weather, like I am? I would also love to hear how you would wear this sandal.

Looking for an outfit for work? Try something like this! Find a striped silk blouse in a dark color, a plaid pencil skirt and a thin gold belt.  Look for a fun pair of button booties for your feet, I might even add tights to this look too. Now add some fun accessories like a pair of studded leather gloves and a plum leather clutch. Poof…Viola! Now you’ve got ‘the’ look!
