Tuesday time waster: Macy's Fashion Director game
Ready to get sucked into the black hole abyss of the Internet? Come on. You didn't need to file those TPS reports today, anyway.
This is fun. It's the Macy's Fashion Director, a new game from Macy's where you put together outfits online. YAY.
It's a 30-day challenge thing. Each day, Macy's gives you a different scenario -- today's is "meeting the in-laws for the first time." You put together an outfit that's right for the occasion and submit it. You can e-mail it, link it on your Facebook and Twitter and whatever. Then the public votes, and the person with the favorite outfit for the day gets a $500 Macy's gift card. Suhweet!
Nick Verreos of Project Runway will be coming to Westshore Plaza in Tampa April 3 for a live styling event tied into the online game. We'll give you details when we have them. For now, check out the outfit I designed today for meeting the in-laws. What do you think?
I was thinking bright colors were good for this occasion. You want to look soft and down-to-Earth, like you'll be a chic-yet-loving mother to future babies and whatnot. You're marrying their pride and joy, after all. No one wants a sullen daughter-in-law in a craggy mini skirt. But... I'm having second thoughts. The white pants seemed like a good idea, but what if you sit in something dusty or chocolatey? DISASTER. Also, I think I forgot a tank top under the cardigan, so this chick is going to make an entirely different kind of first impression. Sigh. Fail.
Try your own! Your boss won't mind getting that project a week late!
