Denim Contest – Please Vote for Me

Kohl's is having a “Demin Story Contest” where you can submit a video &/or picture and story about demin in your life.  I remembered I still had a pair of jeans from high school that I had painted on.  So, I dug them out of storage and coaxed my daughter, Mallory, to put them on (they obviously do not fit me anymore).  I was originally going to make a video explaining them, but the video submissions must be under 30 seconds, and I didn't think I could do them justice in that time.  So I opted for the picture instead…

Painted Zena Jeans from the 80's

And here is what I wrote in under 1000 characters…

These were my favorite denim jeans from high school twenty years ago. Zena Brand was the bomb, and I'm afraid may be making a comeback.

Since I can longer fit into a Size 5, I had my teenage daughter model them for the picture who said “those are so 80's!”

I was an aspiring artist (or so I thought) and dared to be different, I dazzled them by painting on them some of my favorite things.

My favorite songs were “I Like It” by Dino and “So Alive” by Love & Rockets. A boy at the time sang that song to me saying it reminded him of me, “I don't know what color your eyes are baby, but your hair is long and brown. Your legs are strong and so, so long, and you don't come from this town.”

Kohl's has to manually approve each submission saying it could take up to 48 hours, but it only took a few hours to get this email…

Hi Kim,

Congratulations, your entry into the Kohl's Video Contest was approved!

Now you can tell all of your friends to vote for you by going here:

Tip: Be sure to let your friends know that they should vote for you once EVERY DAY.

The more votes you get, the better your chances of winning an exclusive music experience to Rock Like a Star, including tickets to a concert of your choice, PLUS $10,000 in CASH!

Every day you and your friends vote, you can also gain an entry into the random drawing for other great prizes.

Have fun and good luck!

So, this is my plea for your vote!  Beings Mallory's oral surgery is costing $10,000 (she is scheduled for next week), I thought it was cosmic that the prize is that much!  And that was my motivation to enter.

And you can win prizes just for voting, like $100 Kohl's gift cards!

I believe you do have to be signed up with Facebook to enter.  If you aren't, it's free and painless (and after you register, the rest of the day's entries just involve one click of “Love it”).  And once you join Facebook, you can be my friend. 🙂

So pretty please with whip cream and cherries on top, vote for us!  Thanks much!!
