Congratulations to readers Kelsey, Andrea, and Natalie who were chosen at random to win ShinyStyle’s 10 Outfits for 10 Occasions Contest! We’re talking old school random, we drew names out of a bag. But coincidentally both Kelsey and Andrea had their wardrobe dilemma questions chosen to be answered during the contest as well. Check out Kesley’s anniversary outfit and Andrea’s budget New Year’s Eve outfit. Kesley won a dress from Chloe & Reese, Andrea won a The Sak Dakota Hobo, seen at left, and Natalie won a gift certificate to Bruno Jamais.

Be on the lookout for another contest during New York Fashion Week in February!

10 Outfits for 10 Occasions: Kelsey’s anniversary outfit

By Andrea Thatcher on December 31st, 2007

Reader Kelsey wrote in to ask for advice on an outfit for her 3-year anniversary that would compliment her size-12 figure. We chose a silver satin Chloe and Reese dress with some accessories that pop. The dress’s high waistline, wide neckline, demure yet sexy length, and wide straps that allow for a bra will all do Kelsey justice. Along with the silver dress we chose BCBGirls rhinestone slingbacks because many of us already have a similar pair in our closet, and if you don’t, at $66, these will be a workhorse for your dressy wardrobe. Read on for more info on the rest of the dazzling accessories.

Reader Barbara wrote in to our 10 Outfits for 10 Occasions contest for advice to a common problem. She loves her strappy heels, especially when dressing up for New Year’s Eve, but feels uncomfortable when she’s taller than her boyfriend. Luckily there is no shortage of fancy flats out there this holiday season. So, while we concentrate on a Miu Miu pair as part of our outfit, we’ll also give you options at a few different price points. Barbara mentioned sequined cocktail dresses, so we chose this Stenay sequin dress from Nordstrom for $228 to start off this outfit.

10 Outfits for 10 Occasions: Adyna’s formal affair in chilly weather

Adyna entered our 10 Outfits for 10 Occasions contest so now not only is she in the running for a Chloe & Reese dress, a handbag from The Sak, or a dinner at Bruno Jamais, but she gets her what to wear question answered as well. Adyna picked up some summer dresses she was hoping to convert to winter wear with a satin shrug that just covered the shoulders. She has a leopard print Bebe maxi dress, but we thought we’d show you the Roberto Cavalli for H&M leopard maxi dress since we know so many of you have them. Well, you were right Adyna, it is nearly impossible to find a black satin shrug. While we found one by DKNY at our local Marshalls, it was nowhere online and we wanted to show you something we knew you could get. So we found this chiffon shrug at David’s Bridal – one of our secrets for non-bridal formalwear. Keep reading for more details on this outfit!
