The Finalist

Published by bryanboy

As you guys already know, I’m currently serving as a judge for H&M’s latest ’50 States of Fashion’ social media contest to promote the launch of H&M USA’s e-commerce site.

I represent the North East region, which covers 9 states, my home state New York included. Some interesting stats — we’ve received over 1,500 photo submissions from my region and over 16,000 votes were submitted on those photos. My job is to pick the finalist representing my region from a group of “well-liked” semi-finalists. Not an easy task when the submissions represent a wide variety of personal styles, aesthetics, etc.

I’m proud to announce Francisca (Ala Mode Wearhouse) (instagram: alamodewearhouse), from Massachusetts, as my personal choice for finalist representing the North East region. As a finalist, Francisca will receive a $250 H&M shopping gift card and a chance to win the grand prize (a trip to NYC + a major shopping spree).

Muir Woods

Published by bryanboy

Just because I’m a big city boy at heart it doesn’t mean I’m no nature lover. Every once in a while, I like to escape the craycrayness that is New York effing City and go to places like Muir Woods at my best friend’s hometown in Marin County, California. Muir Woods National Monument Park is home to some of the rarest trees in the world — thousand year-old Redwood trees. I’ve never seen trees that tall before. It was insane. It’s a shame the weather (and the sky) wasn’t being cooperative. It was overcast and foggy the whole time we were there.
