A month ago I held a contest on social media and the prizes included a free styling consultation, a feature on my blog and a free Born Freely's t-shirt. The winner was the beautiful Jasmine Colvin who is the owner of J Stylez Boutique and owner of "Undiscovered" magazine.
This was an amazing project. She was very cooperative and also open to new ideas. For her look, we used pieces that are sold at her boutique. The dashiki is a big trend this year so of course we incorporated that into her look.
Jasmine resides in a different state so we have to do the consultation and interview via email. So let's get know Jasmine.
