There comes a time in every blogger's life when she is deemed either relevant or simply average enough to do a giveaway on her blog sponsored by some clothing website or company that has Twitter and "social marketing" written into its mission statement.

For me, that day has come.

Chickdowntown has been hoing it up with lots of bloggers lately, so it should come as no surprise that they are to thank for this little contest. And yes, it is a contest. You can't have something for nothing. This is America.

Here it is: if you want to win, comment on this post with your email address and your go-to-source for photo inspiration. Is it ffffound? tfs? Refinery29? It doesn't even have to be a fashion website. Just something with beautiful pictures. Try to name something unique that I may not have heard of. I'll visit all of those sites and in the end, whoever gave me the most inspiring inspiration shall be gifted with: (drumroll please...)

Any item from BB Dakota or any Love Quotes scarf. I figure that way there's something for everyone. The BB Dakota stuff is really cute (aside from that abominable Twilight Jacket) and there are lots of styles to choose from, like:

And the Love Quotes scarf is...well, let's be honest. I want to own anything that's good enough for Lauren Conrad.

Sound good? Ok. Now for my contractual obligations:

Check out these links for cute sandals and long summer dresses.

You can also follow Chickdowntown on Facebook and Twitter, if you're into that kind of thing. Well maybe you should be, becauase Amy, the owner, just loves doing contests and giveaways. She must be a very generous person.

What's everyone doing this weekend?

  8. The girl must be in NYC as I was just there and everyone was sporting a scarf no matter what the outfit was.

    I was so intrigued with how many different outfits scarfs looked great with. Although being in Florida a scarf way to warm.

    Great photos:)

  9. I am sure this contest is only open to U.S. residents, but I shall give it a shot nonetheless...
    As much as I love fashion blogs, I've also been known to stalk photography blogs, especially those that feature cool, stark urban shots. This guy has an amazing eye for capturing the city of Toronto in unexpected ways.

  10. http://www.mullerphoto.com/

    not a style blog, but the website of a favorite photographer. Muller's photos of actors and music icons inspire an urban style in me that never fails to provide inspiration.

  12. Whenever I need inspiration, I go to Garance Dore (http://www.garancedore.fr/en/). It's my absolute, absolute favorite. There's something so effortlessly cool about everything featured on the site. I only wish I could look half as chic as anything featured on that page. Really, it's so gorgeous.

  20. Is it too late? ... Anyway, I always visit http://suicideblonde.tumblr.com, which doesn't just have fashion photos but really random images from films or TV shows, too, so it's a great eclectic mix. I always come away with a mind stuffed full of pop-culture.

  23. ...not trying to enter twice, but you are obviously interested in finding a good picture site and I just started using this one

    http://zen.picapp.com/blogher/

    I'm not sure if you have to sign up for blogher to use it, but they pay for the photos so you have the rights to use the images on your blog
