Chic After Dark: See The Pins That Won A Newlywed A Paris Vacation

Estee_winner_600x400 (1)
OMG guys, so many pins. Pins for days, actually. It took us over two days of reviewing board after board and narrowing down the many, many worthy contestants before we made our choice and determined the winner of our Chic After Dark Pinterest contest, created hand-in-hand with Estée Lauder.

If you remember, the challenge was to create the best board that represented the spirit of Paris after sunset while pinning some of the glamorous images off Estée Lauder's Nails: Paris After Dark Pinterest board. While most of you were on the money, Gwen Nally's board was just spot-on. Charlottesville, Virginia philosophy graduate student, aspiring wedding invitation designer, and avid pinner (whose many boards you can see here), will soon be flying to the City of Lights on an all-expense paid trip for two. Actually, that's where this one gets interesting. She says, "In Paris, I'll dance, dream, eat, and look for beauty on every street! And catch up on all the art and design. I'll probably take my husband — we're newlyweds!" Awwww, right? Lovely. But why the "probably" Gwen? Paris is for lovers, no? Make sure that hubby of yours has a passport, you two are gonna have a blast.
