So late last year (December 1st to be exact), Refinery 29 and luxe liquor brand Hpnotiq hosted this contest to see whose street style would win them a party in their hometown just in time for New Year’s Eve.

The Backstory

I literally scoured my archives for the best group shot of my Skittles sisters in our boldest and brightest party frocks, uploaded that sartorial sucker to R29, begged and pleaded to all my FB family/ friends/ community/ strangers for their votes, waited week after week to see our numbers skyrocket through the roof et Voilà…Here we are, one month later, lucky (and persistent) enough to be awarded the biggest, baddest Chinese New Year’s bash in the City of Sin and basking in the glory of what can be accomplished when a group of party-savvy women put their minds to it. 

Who would’ve thunk that one little entry would cause such a ruckus??

I did, honey…knew it all along ;D
Mission= Accomplished!

Thank you to Anna Plaks, Briana Boess, and the entire Refinery 29/ Hpnotiq team for hosting such an unforgettable event! Special shout-out to my beautiful Skittles for busting it out within only a few days notice! It’s all about spontaneity in 2012 peeps…where there’s a will, there’s a way!


  1. That is awesome Julie! You totally deserved to win and could all of you girls look ANY more gorgeous?!?! Seriously! Vegas needs to pay the 8 of you to do ads….

  2. What a blast!! I never enter contest because I always figure I'll never actually win, but I may have to start trying 🙂 I'm missing out on a whole lot of fun!

  3. Hi Julie,

    this looks so much fun. Beautiful pictures.

    Thanks for your comment. Now I'm curious about your DIY project. Please tell me more about it! 😉
