It’s March and you know what that means….March Madness: Fashion Edition 2023 is here! I look forward to this every year and I love that you all get excited about it too! Last year I heard feedback that you missed having items from a lot of different shops, so we took a step back to the old ways and I chose 64 outfits from my favorite boutiques to go head to head in voting on my Instagram Stories.

If you are new around here, read below to get all the details on how to play and how to win lots of prizes (thanks to our sponsors). If you have played before, welcome back! We are so happy you are here! Don’t forget to tell your friends and family to play along!

Now let’s talk how to participate and play! It’s really easy and there are lots of fun ways to win prizes this year too!

1.VOTE, VOTE VOTE: We have our 64 contestants ready to go head to head on my Instagram Stories for a chance to be the last item standing. Each week we will be voting on which items YOU like best. We start with 64 items, and after each set of votes we will go from 64 to 32, the sweet sixteen, the elite eight, the final four, and finally….THE CHAMPIONSHIP. For every vote you place, you’ll get one entry into our drawing. Stay tuned on my stories (or see below) for additional ways to enter each week.

2. WIN, WIN, WIN: One lucky participant will get the chance to WIN the item with the most votes during the championship round, just for voting! Plus this year I am giving away additional prizes during each round of the tournament for participants! The best way to see those additional prizes is to follow along on my Instagram (@everyday_ellis).

3. BRACKET: For an additional 30 entries, download and complete the bracket at the bottom of this blog post. Guess which item you think will go all the way. Complete the entire bracket all at one time. Once you have filled out your bracket, take a photo and send it to me via Instagram (or email to so I can see who you have winning. For each item you guessed correctly, you’ll get an additional entry. The elite eight and final four round will give you an additional 4 points for each one you guessed correctly. If you guess the winning item correctly, you’ll get an additional 10 points. The person with the most points (just based on their bracket) will win a big prize at the end! Brackets must be submitted to me by 8 am MST on Thursday, March 16th in order to be considered. For tips on completing your bracket, watch my stories Tuesdays afternoon.

4. RULES: You must follow Everyday Ellis on Instagram to be entered to win. You can find me here. You must participate by voting on my Instagram stories. This giveaway will take place from March 16th – April 3rd, 2023. Winner will be chosen at random between all entries using random number generator and will be contacted within one week from the final voting period. If the winning item is sold out by the time the game is over, you will be given a gift card in the amount the item cost to the shop the item is from.
