So before anything else is said on today’s style challenge, we would like to officially announce the birth of Spruce’s newest addition: Jackson Riley Ungerer – Sam and Sean’s perfect little boy who was born last week Thursday. He has already stolen the hearts of all those around him. We are sure he will be making one or two appearances on the blog in the coming weeks 😉


Now onto one of our most loved series; the Polyvore Style-Off Challenge 

Round 9 will see things working slightly differently to the usual; instead of us two going head to head in the style challenge, we have selected one of our loyal Spruce readers to compete against the overall winner thus far (Ilaria). 

Our first reader challenge will be with the lovely Gomolemo. We are so pleased to have her on board with us in this series! 


If her styled look gets the highest number of votes, another lucky reader will get to compete against her in next month’s style-off! Ladies, get your creative fashion juices flowing!

Our theme this month is: ‘Trending In Spring ’16’

Using our top Spring/Summer 2016 trends (posted a few weeks’ back), Ilaria and Gomo needed to style an outfit using one of the key trends (exposed shoulders / romance and ruffles) identified – and just in time to make us excited for the re-appearance of the warm weather in Joburg! 

Vote for your favourite in the voting box below and let us know what you think of this month’s challenge by commenting on this post – this gives you an automatic entry into next month’s challenge.
