the savers chain of thrift stores (which includes savers, value village, and village der valeurs) is looking for six trendsetting teens to fill fun spots on their 2007-2008 ReDesigner board! members of the ReDesigner board will “represent the popular savers/value village chain” and will be able to “share their fashion philosophies with the world” through focus groups, online style events” and more. the best part? winners will get an all expense-paid trip to seattle, washington (the home of savers) the week july 9th-13th for to participate in a fashion workshop that includes shopping for, styling, and starring in saver’s annual back-to-school photo shoot!

apply and get more info here:

get on it! the deadline is june 25, 2007.


i’m not sure how many teenagers i reach with this blog (say hello if you’re reading!), but i thought i’d pass the word along anyway…perhaps you have a teen in your life who might be into something like this cool-sounding contest!

the reason i posted this: i would have KILLED for something like this when i was a fashion-obsessed, thrift-shopping-crazed teen! heck, there should be something like this for “adults”! *hint hint*

    Heres a “hello” from a teen… I’ve been visiting your blog for quite some time and I pretty much love it! After reading through the posts, I’m taking more chances with my style. And, the lovely people of wardrobe remix are truly inspirational. Thanks for posting the ReDesigner notice, I will definately consider entering 🙂

    tricia – i’m with you on the “i would have KILLED” bandwagon – holy hell!!! small town wisconsin girl who gets teased by her teachers for wearing “curtains” (although i never did – tablecloths maybe…) and men’s pj tops and large trousers cinched up with a belt – i wore a mean turtlneck skirt too, let me tell you…anywho – i’m really lovin’ the wardrobe remix interviews, maybe i’ll get off my butt and put some of meself on that there site of yers. but seriously thanks for all your awesome work and ongoing inspiration! you ROCK!

    TRICIA! I discovered your blog a couple of months ago and lucky for me too..i really enjoy reading it and seeing all of the great outfits you post!

    But the point of this comment is that I’m an 18 year old and I adore fashion! I always try to be unique and original with what I wear and I love thrifting 😀

    So I applied to the re-design thing and let’s cross our fingers, I hope I get it!!! Wouldn’t that be awesome?

    Anywho, ttyl!
